First Scholars September News
Note from Rebeca
Dear First Scholars,
Thanks for the warm welcome as I start my role of overseeing the First Scholars Program. I look forward to working with each one of you during your undergraduate career, helping you set goals, thrive, and shoot for the stars. Please know that I am here to assist you-stop by Holton Hall 101.
Welcome new first year scholars: Noah Aeillo, Katie Arpin, Jacquii Ayala, Lexie Broeker, Jessie Carr, Katelynn Clark, Emma Claybrook, Juan De Santiago, Lauren Ewing, Gabrielle Farris, Gerald Frayre, Monica Harrison, Selena Hernandez, Brianna Jackson, Westley Jennings, Lauren Lauffer, Jacob Loecker, Cody Price, Efrain Reyes and Montezia Shakespear. We are happy you have chosen K-State and that you have joined the First Scholars Program. Keep up the good work that you have started this semester.
The fall 2016 semester is off to a great start. So far this semester the first year First Scholars have gone on a retreat to kick of the school year and have had a picnic. The annual trip to the pumpkin patch will be upon us soon! You can check out the video below to see some highlights from our picnic this year.
We are trying out something new this month! Each newsletter First Scholars will select one student to feature in a twenty-questions type style video. We would like everyone to get to know our scholars better and see all of the unique and fun things they are doing at Kansas State. This month we will be featuring junior Tyler Aden. Tyler is a mathematics major and is currently doing undergraduate research. Watch the video below to learn more about Tyler’s adventures at K-State.
