Students preparing to graduate celebrated their days as Wildcats during the annual Grad Bash at the K-State Alumni Center on Thursday.

“I like that everyone’s friendly, and I enjoyed clubs and organizations I participated in here,” Moriah Clark, senior in social work, said.

The soon-to-be alumni received free T-shirts and munched on free food while they wandered in and out of photo booths to take their headshots for graduation and entered raffles to win tickets for the 2018 football season, jackets, hats and more.

The Grad Bash allowed students to have an event dedicated for themselves, to reflect on their accomplishments throughout their time at K-State.

“My favorite part of K-State was my freshman year living at Moore,” Trey Nelson, senior in agribusiness, said. “I made so many of my friends in the dorm, and I’m still friends with them. I’ve enjoyed building relationships throughout the year.”
