Gorilla Gatherings


What is a Gorilla Gathering?

A Gorilla Gathering is an event meant to bring alumni and constituents together. Our goal is to bring Pittsburg State University to you wherever you might be! These events occur throughout the year and in a variety of locations.

What can you expect?

We often host Gorilla Gatherings as a dinner at a local restaurant or venue – sometimes we even bring famous SEK fried chicken along! In addition to providing a meal, we:

  • Provide a University update with a special guest from PSU. The special guest could be President Scott, college deans, your favorite professors, or athletic coaches.
  • Provide information about the many opportunities available for PSU alumni.
  • Give away tons of PSU swag to help you promote the Gorillas everywhere you go.

Luncheons are another common type of Gorilla Gathering. These are set up very similar to the dinners but in a shorter timeframe. They typically last about one hour. It’s simple – we eat, network, update, and win prizes!

Family events are often hosted to not only engage our alumni, but also engage their families. In addition to family day during football and basketball seasons, we are planning some new and exciting family events for the upcoming year, so stay tuned!

Finally, our After Hours Gorilla Gatherings have continued to grow in popularity. We enjoy appetizers, drinks, networking, and prizes at these informal events. It is all about good conversation and good company of fellow Gorillas. One of our most popular after hours’ events is held at Boulevard Brewing Co. in Kansas City, MO in the spring.

With that being said, our main goal is to bring alumni and friends together to enjoy delicious food, a fun activity, or just good conversation over drinks! We also want to keep you up-to-date about what is going on at your alma mater! If you have a suggestion for an event and/or location, please send us an email at alumni@pittstate.edu. We would love to hear from you! We hope to see you soon!

Once a Gorilla, Always a Gorilla!
