Home page feature guidelines

Content

  1. The purpose of the home page features is to show Kansas State University in a positive light by showcasing awards, research and other exceptional news about the university. 
  2. Feature topics should have a broad appeal and be for an external audience.
  3. Event-oriented features are discouraged. Exceptions may be made for art exhibits, theater and music performances. You are welcome to have your event added to the university calendar by emailing calendar@k-state.edu.
