Krannert Center's 40th Anniversary - KCSA Reunion

Happy 40th Anniversary Krannert Center!

KCSA Reunion at Krannert Center for the Performing Arts in Urbana, Illinois

Saturday afternoon (after stuffing myself with pizza at Papa Del’s) I headed over to Krannert Center for the Performing Arts for the first time since graduating from UofI. It was time to gather for the 40th reunion of the Krannert Center Student Association. Back in college I was the marketing director for two years and president for one of KCSA (Krannert Center Student Association), the organization that does all of the ushering and tours and hosts several big events at the Krannert Center in Urbana.

KCSA reunion at Krannert Center's 40th Anniversary

For the 40th anniversary of Krannert Center they invited all of the alumni back for a party! A lot of old friends came back for it, including Cornie and Jinna who I haven’t seen since graduating!

It was fun, they had Mike Ross and some others give speeches and there was food memorabilia and some good ole fashioned catching up. What was odd was that there seemed to be a lot of people there from the first ten years of KCSA (including the first 6 presidents!) and a lot of people from when I was there and not a lot in between or after. Crazy. I guess it is lucky that I was there when I was when everyone was so dedicated to Krannert. It was an amazing organization and I made so many friends from there.

After the party we broke into the KCSA office because Doug still has a key. It was fun to point out all the stuff that was still there (the dying pig and futon) and all the stuff that we’d put up. For the record, my voice is still on the answering machine message.


It was a great little get together and was so great catching up with people from the past! Can’t wait for the 50th anniversary!

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
