Assoc. Prof. Charnchai Panthongviriyakul, M.D., President of Khon Kaen University, congratulated and welcomed the new 2024 undergraduate students, Class 61st. “It is now 61 years that Khon Kaen University has taught and prepared class after class of graduates, as part of the University’s intention to be the social dedicating university. KKU students are like the fruits of Kalaphruek tree, the beloved tree of Khon Kaen University that has grown and expanded the branches all over the area. Students who come to study here will be another step of our pride, for you possess knowledge, competency, and perseverance. When starting the life as a student, besides full intention to study, students should know how to adjust yourselves to the social context that has changed. University life is different from school. The feeling of freedom and free of regulations actually is the “discipline” that everyone must hold on to and learn how to manage the student life until you reach the goal, that is completion of education as the “graduate of Khon Kaen University” within the time frame. Students must be able to apply the knowledge, experiences, and different sciences learned in the University for the benefits of yourselves, society, and the world.”

“Khon Kaen University welcomes all freshmen and congratulates the “61st Kalaphruek” who come to study at Khon Kaen University. I wish you all happiness, good physical and mental health, and full intellect to gracefully grow as the “Kalaphruek” of Khon Kan University,” ended the President.
