On-campus K-State students will be on spring break March 19-23. Online classes may have activities, assignments or exams due during this week, and it will vary by class and instructor.

Summer and fall 2018 enrollment is right around the corner. As you're finalizing your summer enrollment plans, don't forget to apply for summer financial aid (like scholarships, grants and loans).

Swap your purple for green and celebrate Irish history and culture Saturday, March 17. St. Patrick's Day gained its momentum in the U.S. when Irish immigrants and citizens decided to push back against negative stereotypes and show their pride for Ireland. We tip our hats to those 19th-century Irish-Americans who found a way to change hearts and minds through positive celebration.
