Letter from K-State President Kirk Schulz


Dear K-State Students and Fans,

As we celebrate the remarkable victory by our men’s basketball team over the University of Kansas on ESPN’s Big Monday, we are proud of the determination our student-athletes displayed. Congratulations to head coach Bruce Weber and his staff for a tremendous effort that truly reflects the Wildcat Way. The passion and enthusiasm of our fans also played a huge role in creating a big-time college atmosphere.

Opportunities to be on national broadcasts are not common and serve to shape our national reputation as a top public research university. Athletic Director John Currie and his staff members work extremely hard to provide a world-class fan experience. We ask that you be aware of what the national audience sees and hears on these broadcasts and help us make a great impression for K-State. This includes avoiding the use of profanity in cheers during the game.

Good reputations are hard won and easily lost. We believe the Wildcat Way is to create a family friendly atmosphere at all of our athletic events. Let’s put on the purple and represent our university with pride in all of our upcoming athletic events.

Go Cats!

Kirk Schulz

K-State President
