From the President’s desk


Dear K-Staters,

Congratulations on making it more than halfway through the semester! The time sure has flown by. Get excited for a big opportunity for our Wildcats on Saturday in Norman against Oklahoma – after a bye this weekend, it’s safe to say head coach Bill Snyder will have the guys ready to go!

As we mentioned in our previous letter, this week is OrgSync Week at K-State. One of our platform initiatives was to seamlessly implement this outstanding student organization management platform. We’ve had more than 400 organizations register so far, but we want everyone to be able to actively use and benefit from the program. We’ll have a variety of sessions and workshops this week to answer any questions you have. See our schedule below, and follow us on Twitter for updates:

Tuesday, Oct. 14

Keep an eye out for the Campus Climate Survey beginning this week. The survey, which is being conducted for the first time, will give K-State an idea of how people perceive and experience campus on a daily basis. We and the university administration want to make K-State even safer and more welcoming, and we need your input to make it happen. You can begin taking the survey today at By completing the survey, you’ll be entered into a drawing for tuition credits, an iPad, a preferred parking spot and more.

Finally, we’ll be hosting Workshop Architects this Wednesday through Friday for their first formal visit to campus under their contract for the Union renovation project. We’d love to see a huge student turnout at Focus Fest on Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Bosco Student Plaza to provide input for the project.

Thanks for reading, and don’t forget to come see us at OrgSync Week events, take the Campus Climate Survey, and root hard for the ‘Cats on Saturday. As always, feel free to reach out with any questions, comments or concerns.
