Experience the Wildcat Way

It doesn't matter if you ask a long-time professor, recent graduate, passionate alum or a fresh-eyed freshman. Pick a member of the K-State community at random and ask him or her what it means to be a Wildcat, and you will most likely get a one-word answer: Family.

Family Values

K-Staters consider themselves family, and that belief shines through contributions as diverse as our members. Researchers invent solutions to problems that could save a life halfway across the world, and students band together on a Saturday morning for community service. Thousands of Wildcat fans pack our stadiums shouting in unison, and our leadership guides us in ways befitting the obligations of a land-grant university.

In fact, these obligations could be considered our family values, and the many ways we achieve them are the Wildcat Way. We invite you to come along for the ride, because there's always room for one more in the K-State family.
