Announcements

With finals approaching, it is a great time to make sure new students are aware of a few recommendations from our upperclassmen that can help them be successful. The number one recommendation for academic success is time management. Students should make sure they know their final exam schedule to plan study time. Professors list final exam times on the course syllabus. Students can also find the university final exam schedule on the K-State Academics webpage: courses.k-state.edu/fall2017/information/xam.html.

We recommend that students study two to three hours per week per credit hour enrolled. We also suggest that students study away from their residences. The college provides study space in the Fiedler Learning Commons and throughout the engineering building. SAS Tutoring is available in the Collaborative Learning Lab. Tutors will schedule final exam reviews in some math, science and engineering courses.

Last, but not least, getting enough sleep is critical to a student's academic success and overall health and well-being. To learn more, visit the Study Skills webpage.

 
Spotlight

Multicultural Engineering Program
The Multicultural Engineering Program (MEP) works with multicultural students to provide opportunities for networking and engagement. The program also provides special opportunities for engineering corporate and industry partners to meet with multicultural students. MEP student organizations include the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES), National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), and Society of Hispanic Engineers (SHPE). To learn more, visit the MEP webpage.

 

Women in Engineering
The Women in Engineering (WiE) program provides opportunities for women in engineering to connect, share and support each other during their time at K-State. WiE mentors and leaders create and plan events and activities that provide social engagement, professional development and academic support for women in the college. To learn more, visit the WiE webpage.
