Earlier this month I shared the following letter with students, faculty and staff. I hope all parents and families take great pride in knowing your student attends a university that attracts the best and brightest students.
Dear faculty and staff,
I thought you would find interesting some of the demographics released from the Kansas Board of Regents for the fall 2015 new student class:
We remain the No. 1 choice among Kansas high school graduating seniors, actually increasing our lead over our top in-state competitor.
We enrolled, once again, a record number of domestic multicultural students.
We increased our average ACT composite score for new domestic students for the fifth consecutive year from 23.6 to almost 25.
Director of Parent & Family Relations Mindy R. Weixelman recently sat down with Associate Director of Student Financial Assistance/Director of Powercat Financial Counseling (PFC) Jodi Kaus to learn more about PFC and how it benefits K-State students and families.
“We couldn’t be more excited that our state is just one final step away from having Lifeline 911 passed into law. When it comes to student safety, situations of life and death should always be considered with utmost responsibility.We feel passionately that this legislation can keep one student’s dangerous decision from resulting in the ultimate consequence, as this law will give students the confidence to make the call in alcohol-related medical emergencies. We feel this is not only an important achievement on behalf of student safety, but also a tremendous testament to the role that student governments in the state of Kansas can play in advocating for student interests at all levels of government.”
LiveSafe is an app for the K-State community that provides a direct connection to K-State police so that everyone can easily communicate all their safety needs. Its easy-to-use features help students stay safe every day.
Stop by Career & Employment Services in Holtz Hall to prepare for upcoming Career Fairs on campus.
I believe parents and families want two things for their college student. First, you want your student to graduate from college. Preferably, in a reasonable amount of time. Second, you want your student to get a job. A good one. Am I right?
