A message from VP for Student Life/Dean of Students Dr. Bosco

Ways To Support Our Students

I recently shared this message with K-State faculty and staff, and thought parents would also appreciate learning more about ways that we support our students.

Dear faculty and staff,
With the recent reorganization in the Division of Student Life, Holton Hall is revitalized with a better, more convenient collaboration of offices that support students.

Over the summer, the Office of Student Life, Non-Traditional and Veteran Student Services, Student Legal Services and Off-Campus Housing moved 201 Holton Hall. These offices join the Student Access Center, the LGBT Resource Center and the CARE office rounding out a true “one stop shop” for student support on the second floor of Holton.
I understand this time can be a stressful and challenging time in the semester for students. Please encourage students to take advantage of the many helpful resources at K-State. Working with the Academic Assistance Center, Office of Student Life staff can discuss academics and help schedule an academic coach. They also can help problem solve and connect students to other resources.

Faculty and staff are the number one referral of students to our office. There are multiple ways to refer a student who may be in need of assistance. You’re welcome to call us at 785-532-6432, stop by our office in 201 Holton, walk a student over to make an appointment, or fill out our Student of Concern Reporting form. We find the most successful referrals happen when the student knows you are referring them and you help them make the connection with our office.

As the semester winds to a close, please keep these free and convenient resources in mind and pass them along to your students. We are a K-State family, and together we can help one another succeed.

Go ‘Cats!
Pat Bosco
