Managers' Ball

Update: 2021-2022 Managers' Ball

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and after careful review of available information and consideration of several options, we decided to cancel the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 Managers’ Ball out of an abundance of caution and with the safety of students and guests being the first priority. On behalf of the KSA and Student Experience team, thank you for your patience and understanding as we worked through this decision process. This was a tough choice but we believe this is the best path forward.

We hope to host an in-person event in Fall 2021 and return to this tradition!
