"Student Union Activities had exceeding engagement like no other this past year, with over 15,000 attendees and 50 new committee members. Students were engaging with social media, wanted to help the Jayhawk community, and were active in events such as drag, to-go crafts, drive-in movies, etc. We are so excited to be back with our events and can't wait to bring the community together again with events this coming year!" - Mikayla Leader


Cherished advisors Michelle Compton-Muñoz and Whitney Mahoney departed but left worthy successors Bailee Myers and Stephanie Darden.
