Explore the many ways to connect with your inner Wildcat.

Parents and Family Association

Families have always been involved at K-State. The Parents and Family Association, or PFA, is a way to formalize the connection between K-State and the families of our students. PFA allows families to feel actively engaged with their students’ college experience by participating in campus programs and activities specifically geared toward families.

Family members can build or maintain university connections by participating in student recruitment activities throughout Kansas and beyond, as well as raise funds to support scholarships and enhancements to student life.


K-State Family Day

K-State Family Day is a special tradition. Recently, we celebrated 90 years of welcoming families to campus for a day of activities designed around community, togetherness and pride.

Enjoy a variety of activities — including a special football tailgate — designed to showcase the history, tradition and special connection between K-State, our students and their families. We welcome families from throughout the state, nation and world every year for this special weekend.

During the Family Day weekend’s home football game, the annual Family of the Year also is recognized, showcasing a family that has displayed great dedication to the K-State community and Wildcat family.


All-University Open House

Each spring, the entire family is invited to enjoy food, fun and plenty of purple at the annual K-State All-University Open House. Students, families and the K-State community can explore majors and options, student organizations, and K-State research while taking in great entertainment, delicious food and plenty of surprises.
