Kansas State Polytechnic Alumni & Friends


Whether you’re a graduate from the Polytechnic Campus or a loyal Wildcat fan in the community, it’s our pleasure to keep you connected with the campus and informed of exciting news and events. This campus and the university as a whole are extremely grateful for your support - we wouldn’t be where we are today without your purple pride.

For those of you that don’t know, K-State's Polytechnic Campus has a very storied history. There is more than 50 years worth of tradition on this plot of land on Centennial Road. In 1965, the real estate transformed from an Air Force base into Schilling Institute where it offered the first computer science degree in the state. Four years later it was renamed Kansas Technical Institute and then in 1988 it was converted into Kansas College of Technology. With the approval of Governor Joan Finney, the campus officially became a part of the Kansas State University family in 1991.

We are very proud of our unique past and believe each graduate from the schools that came before set the tone of success for our current programs and students. It is our hope that everyone with a tie to this campus will consider being a part of the elite group of Kansas State Polytechnic alumni and friends. Through gatherings, activities, initiatives, and giving, together we can keep the legacy of this campus alive.

If you have questions about the alumni program or would like to know how you can support our campus and the university, please feel free to contact the K-State Alumni Association at 800-600-ALUM (2586). As we continue to grow and progress, we look forward to building even stronger bonds with our Wildcat faithful.
