Following the university’s decision to postpone resuming class following spring break and begin online-only instruction on March 23, the Collegian will suspend regular print production schedule until further notice.

The Collegian remains committed to keeping the university community informed and will continue to publish regularly online as information becomes available regarding Kansas State’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and other important issues related to student life.

This decision to go online-only was not made lightly and will be reviewed continually as the situation progresses. We may return to our regular publication schedule before the university resumes in-person instruction.

The Collegian will continue to accept news tips through news@kstatecollegian.com and letters to the editor via letters@kstatecollegian.com. As is always the case, news can be found at kstatecollegian.com.
