CH8: K-State farm offers hands-on learning opportunities to students


The Willow Lake Student Farm is a site off-campus for students in all manners of career paths to conduct research or get hands on experience while enjoying time outside. Whether students are researching polyculture or just looking to get their hands in the soil, the farm is a place to get involved.

My name is Kaylie McLaughlin and I'm the ex-managing editor and audience engagement manager of the Collegian. Previously, I've been the editor-in-chief and the news editor. In the past, I have also contributed to the Royal Purple Yearbook and KKSU-TV. Off-campus, you can find my bylines in the Wichita Eagle, the Shawnee Mission Post and KSNT News. I grew up just outside of Kansas City in Shawnee, Kansas. I’m a senior in digital journalism with a minor in French and a secondary focus in international and area studies. As a third-generation K-Stater, I bleed purple and my goal is to serve the Wildcat community with accurate coverage.
