From the president’s desk


Dear K-Staters,

We hope your week is off to a great start! Just a couple more weeks until we all get some time off to celebrate Thanksgiving. Hang in there!

This Wednesday, we in the Student Governing Association would like to invite you to our SGA Serves You event. Come to Bosco Student Plaza between 12:15-2 p.m. and have a cup of hot chocolate with us – we’d love to chat with you about our role on campus and answer any questions you have about what SGA does.

Do you have an idea for a project that would improve sustainability on campus? The Green Action Fund wants to help you make it a reality! Visit for more information and to apply for sponsorships. All forms must be submitted electronically to and in a hard copy to the Office of Student Activities and Services.

Finally, we look forward to welcoming Kansas Sen. Garrett Love, Kansas Board of Regents Interim Director of Government Relations Dan Murray and Kansas Legislative Research Department Director Raney Gilliland to campus on Thursday for the annual Pizza and Politics event. Student leaders will have the opportunity to interact with these panelists and learn about their careers.

Good luck with the rest of your week and, as always, feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

Go Cats!

Reagan Kays, student body president

Cody Kennedy, student body vice president
