From the President’s Desk: Sept. 15


Dear Fellow K-Staters,

Congratulations to our K-State volleyball team as they picked up their seventh-straight win and won first place in the Saluki Invitational on Saturday. I know this is a big week for many students, faculty and staff as we all prepare to cheer on the Cats on Thursday as Auburn comes to Bill Snyder Family Stadium. I hope you all will join Cody and I in being respectful to all the visitors in town for the game.

We’re excited to announce that today, the first ever K-State Tutoring website was launched. This is the first step in one of our campaign platform initiatives, Your Education. This all-in-one website will make it easy for students to find the tutoring services they need.

The implementation of OrgSync has been going smoothly – so far, more than 350 student organizations are on board. We’ll continue to promote this awesome new platform and help students get the most out of using it. If you or your organization would like some help with the program, contact organizational outreach coordinators Sarah Truman ( and Lizzi Petite (

We’ve also been hard at work on our Your Life platform, and we’re confident that we’ll have a medical amnesty policy in place on campus this fall. We’ve had productive meetings with the K-State Police Department, Riley County Police Department and the Riley County Prosecutor’s Office, Riley County EMS and other key stakeholders. Once a policy is enacted at K-State, we’ll shift our focus to the state level. We want students at K-State and at other Kansas universities to be comfortable alerting the proper authorities when a friend has had too much to drink.

Have a great week, and as always, Go Cats!

Reagan Kays and Cody Kennedy
