First up: Benefication
What is it?
Benefication is KCOU’s alumni benefit & new studio dedication event.
A celebration of 40 years of FM and 50 years of student radio at Mizzou.
All current staff are strongly encouraged to connect with returning KCOU veterans throughout the weekend and help make the event a memorable success.
KCOU will feature a concert on Friday night for the Alumni and staff during meet & greet in the shack.

The hallways outside of KCOU were looking a bit bare, so we decided to add some of our old-school flair.
