From the President’s Desk


Dear fellow students,

To update you, at our weekly Student Senate meeting last week, a resolution was passed unanimously that states the senate body encourages administration to immediately change K-State policy to allow for investigation and adjudication of off-campus sexual violence. Kansas State students and organizations are pushing for this change, and we commend the efforts of those who care deeply about this issue.

We have continued to communicate with administrators and are committed to ensuring the current K-State policy is changed. This change is necessary in order to provide a safe environment for Kansas State students. At the end of the day, we are here to represent students and will do our best to provide the best experience.

Additionally, we want to congratulate the athletes who will continue their football careers playing for various NFL teams. With a selection in the NFL draft, and a few free agents, we would like to acknowledge that we are proud of our peers and of our athletics program for continuing the 23-year streak of having players be selected into the draft. We know this happens because of the pure talent our program recruits and the experience they have here at K-State.

While on the topic of K-State football, Coach Snyder is now on Twitter! Give him a follow @CoachBillSnyder!

It was also announced last week that the Zac Brown Band will headline a concert at Bill Snyder Family Stadium this fall on Sept. 10, a week before the home football opener. They will be accompanied by a headlining act performed by Train. We are looking forward to the first concert at the stadium in nearly 30 years and are grateful for the commitment Athletics has to the K-State and Manhattan communities.

Our plans for the summer will include monthly Collegian updates of platform development and other things we are working on, on top of our regular social media updates. Like us on Facebook — K-State Student Body President and Vice President, follow us on Instagram — @KSUSBPVP, and follow us on Twitter — @KStateSBP_SBVP.

We wish you the best of luck on finals!
