On June 26, 1867, Kansas State Agricultural College held commencement ceremonies for its first five graduates: Henry L. Denison, Belle M. Haines, L. Emma Haines, John J. Points, and Martha A. White. This year is the sesquicentennial of that inaugural graduating class. Their journey began when K-State’s doors first opened in September 1863 to 52 students, equally divided between men and women.
