Benefits Fair

A benefits expo (fair) is held each October during open enrollment for benefits.

Cats in the Capitol

Each year dozens of leaders from across campus, including members of Classified Senate, travel to the State House in Topeka to distribute cookies and ice cream to our legislators. Cats in the Capitol is an opportunity for our university's faculty, staff, and students to thank our state leaders for their hard work and dedication throughout the session. The event is held around mid-February every year in commemoration of K-State's birthday and in celebration of Kansas State University's success throughout the year.

Day on the Hill

Members of the K-State Classified Senate attend the annual Day on the Hill in late January along with the other five Board of Regent University Classified and Support Staff Council. Appointments are made with State Senators and Legislators to present the CSSC unified position paper. In addition to these meetings, the presidents of each university’s CSSC also attend meetings with other top officials in the capital which included the governor. This is a great opportunity for classified employees to visit with those who set the policy of salary and benefits they receive from the State of Kansas.
