Hawks to Watch: Highlights

This fall, the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences welcomed back to campus many of the alumni who were named in this year’s inaugural class of Hawks to Watch. Their visits included small group discussions with students, visits with faculty members, and participation in career-focused panels.

Many of this year’s honorees were able to return to campus on Oct. 13 and 14 to participate in events designed to recognize their accomplishments and engage them with the KU community. The Student Alumni Association organized an evening of networking with the Hawks and a panel discussion moderated by Dean Carl Lejuez. All visiting Hawks were also recognized at a luncheon hosted by the KU Alumni Association and attended by Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little, Provost Neeli Bendapudi, Dean Lejuez and Alumni Association President Heath Peterson.

Hawks to Watch was introduced in 2016 as a way to highlight outstanding recent alumni from the College. Check out the photos below for a few scenes from the weekend and find even more images on the CLAS Facebook!
