Connect Purple
Veterinary Medical Alumni Association

The mission and objectives of the VMAA are to promote and support the interests of Kansas State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and its alumni. This includes alumni activities, student recruitment, fund development, professional, legislative and public relations.

This summer, we are launching a new branding effort called Connect Purple. Connect Purple helps us embrace our goals of better connecting with our alumni to the college, to their fellow alumni and to current students. 

With this new branding, there are enhanced membership benefits. VMAA Members will have the following membership benefits: Online Job Board, Online Alumni Community Discussion Board, Ability to Update Your Information Online, Complimentary Meal at the Vet Med Football Pre-Game Tailgate, Complimentary Drink at Alumni Receptions, Discounted June Conference Registration and many more! Lifetime VMAA Members will have access to our searchable online alumni directory. Check out these benefits on this site!

Every year the VMAA sponsors East Side Club Tickets to give away to our VMAA members for renewing their membership. Be sure to watch for next year's contest for the 2019 football season! Congratulations to this year's winners:

K-State vs. UTSA - Mel Ahlquist
