Dear Wildcats,

Olivia and I would like to wish a happy late birthday to our fearless football leader, Bill Snyder!

We recently attended the Big 12 Conference at Texas Tech where the Kansas State Student Governing Association met with other student governments from the Big 12 to discuss platforms and initiatives at their respective colleges. Some of the topics covered were Title IX, college affordability, counseling services and other resources on campus for students.

We brought back ideas and information to further our platforms and help the students of K-State.

To reach more students, Olivia, Jonathan Peuchen, speaker of the student senate, Haley Hannaman, student attorney general, and I have started office hours that take place in the Student Union or other buildings on campus. Those times and locations will be posted weekly on our Twitter, @KStateSBP_SBVP. Please feel free to stop by with any questions or concerns.

As a reminder, student senate meetings take place on Thursdays at 7 p.m. in the Wildcat Chamber inside the Union and they are live streamed at K-State.edu/SGA. Please don’t hesitate to email us at jmayres@ksu.edu and oliviab2@ksu.edu or stop by during our office hours.

Go Cats!
