Welcome back from Dean Pat Bosco


Welcome to the K-State family! Each fall our entire community looks forward to welcoming new students to one of the most beautiful campuses in the United States. I am honored you chose K-State for your college education and to provide many opportunities for success, both inside and outside the classroom. With our academic programs, student life opportunities, and caring faculty and staff members, K-State is a fantastic place to call home.

K-State’s mission is “putting students first.” As your dean, I give you permission to ask for help. An essential resource designed specifically for students is our One Stop Shop for Student Success website: k-state.edu/onestop/. It is the place to access important programs and services for your success at K-State in one convenient location. Featuring information about some of our most popular aspects of the student experience, this site connects you to resources related to your academic, personal, and professional goals.

We believe a commitment to leadership development is a vital part of college. K-State offers more than 475 student organizations, multicultural groups, comprehensive recreational and intramural sports programs, and leadership development opportunities through formal courses, organized living groups, and campus organizations.

We are in the business of student success, and your success at K-State is important to me.
