Fellow K-Staters,

Hope you all are doing well. We know it’s almost exam time and you’re all busy studying for your upcoming tests, so we’ll try our best to keep this one short.

A big thank you to the K-State Career and Employment Services for a very successful All-University Career fair. We hope all students had a fruitful time visiting prospective employers and putting their best foot forward.

Over the past few months we have been working with K-State Division of Communications and Marketing to create a video further explaining our Open Textbook Initiative. The OTI has been instrumental in helping hundreds of students at K-State save on textbook costs and we’re looking forward to sharing some of their experiences with you. The video is scheduled to be released in the coming weeks so keep an eye out for that.

As always, we hope you’ll wear purple this Friday in support of the ‘Cats as they go down to Stillwater to take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

We look forward to hearing from you via twitter at @KStateSBP_SBVP or by email at

Thank you and Go ‘Cats,

Andrew Hurtig, student body president

senior in accounting

Joe Tinker, student body vice president
