Points of Pride
Whether you’ve attended events on campus your whole life or are just learning the Wildcat Way, you will quickly find yourself a member of the K-State family.
The college has earned 12 national prestigious awards since 2010 based on its strong academic programs and commitment to diversity, which has led to high placement rates for graduates.
Hundreds of deserving students benefit from our endowed scholarships receiving approximately $500,000 in scholarships each year. Four incoming freshman are selected annually for the Tomorrow’s Teachers scholarship, a four-year renewable award of $2,500.
The college has produced documentaries, some with lesson plans, that double as teaching resources for teachers.
Your K-State family is with you even after graduation. We’ve created EdCats, a free program to support you for the first three years in your new classroom.
K-State was one of first universities in the nation to adopt “Joining Forces’ Educate the Educator” program, which resulted in Dean Debbie Mercer being invited to the White House. About 1,400 of the U.S. Army’s highest-ranking officers earned master’s degrees from the college while attending the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth.
The college has nine academic centers that enrich the student experience.
