Media advisory: Kansas Board of Regents visiting campus; available to media April 6

MANHATTAN -- The Kansas Board of Regents is making a special visit to Kansas State University. Media are invited to ask questions of the regents from 9:45-10 a.m. Friday, April 6, in the Tadtman Boardroom on the second floor of the K-State Alumni Center. The center is on the northwest corner of Anderson and Denison avenues.

PHOTOGRAPHS AND B-ROLL: Media will have an opportunity to take photos and shoot video from 10:15-11 a.m., when students will present to the regents posters about success initiatives. The presentations will be in the Tointon Great Room on the center's first floor.

NEWS MEDIA PARKING: Free parking is available by using a K-State media parking pass, which allows parking in any nonreserved or nonhandicap student or faculty/staff space in the university's parking lots. A convenient parking lot that will accommodate media parking passes is diagonal to the alumni center's west entrance. The lot is on Denison Avenue across from West Stadium.

Please note that parking without a pass in a reserved or handicap space can result in a parking fine or the wheel-locking or towing of your vehicle. If you do not have a media parking pass, please contact news/editorial services at media@k-state.edu or 785-532-2535 several days in advance to arrange for one.

Other parking options include the K-State parking garage on 17th Street, across from the center's front entrance, where parking is $1.50 an hour on a space-available basis. A one-day visitor parking pass also can be purchased for $4 at the drive-up teller window on the west side of the parking garage. The pass allows for the same outdoor parking as with a media parking pass. Please allow ample time for parking.
