If you are expecting to graduate this December, congratulations! Commencement ceremonies will be held December 8 and 9 in Manhattan, Kansas, (or in Salina, Kansas, if you're a K-State Polytechnic graduate) and will recognize graduates from the fall 2017 semester. If you plan to join us on campus, let's party! K-State Global Campus is hosting a Graduation Reception for distance education graduates and their guests from 4 to 5:30 p.m., Friday, December 8 at the K-State Alumni Center. Please note that if you do plan to come to Manhattan, it is important to make hotel reservations as early as possible. Visit this website for more information to help plan your visit. Invitations to follow.
Students enrolled in a Global Campus bachelor's, master's or doctoral degree program should apply for spring and summer 2018 scholarships by November 1. Scholarships will be awarded based on a variety of eligibility factors including grade point average, financial need, military status, degree program or current employer. Congratulations to the record-breaking number of scholarship recipients for fall 2017.
Join K-State Counseling Services for a Kat Chat on keeping your relationships happy and healthy. Participants will learn how to communicate effectively with a partner as well as how to define boundaries within a relationship. Distance students can join via Zoom from 4 to 4:45 p.m. CST on October 17.
On October 18, we're joining with the K-State Honor and Integrity System to promote International Day of Action against Contract Cheating. Contract cheating is a form of cheating in colleges and universities that occurs when students submit academic work that was done by another person, usually for payment. Join us in speaking up and out against contract cheating.
