Young Alumni Council Members at Rockhurst University Social
Thursday, August 18, 2022 - 5:45pm to 8:30pm
Wayside Waifs & Transparent Brewing

Join us for a summer Young Alumni Council Service and Recruitment Social! This event is a great chance to meet fellow young alumni and learn more about joining our Young Alumni Council.

We will be taking a tour and conducting a service activity at Wayside Waifs, one of Kansas City's no-kill animal shelters. Alumna Amanda Smasal, '18 MA, Special Events Manager, will speak about her role at Wayside and her experience at Rockhurst. Afterwards, we'll gather for a happy hour at Transparent Brewing Co. a new microbrewery in the area. Enjoy heavy appetizers from the adjacent Chive Café! If you can only make the service portion or happy hour portion, we would be glad to have you.
