K-STATE NAMES WILDCAT WARM-UP DIRECTORS FOR 2010

MANHATTAN -- Four Kansas State University students will serve as directors of Wildcat Warm-up in 2010, a program aimed at student retention.

Student directors facilitate in planning the program and also coordinate the work of the student counselors, who are chosen in the spring.

The 2010 directors are: Connor Hartpence, sophomore in microbiology, Eudora; Kelsie Ball, junior in family studies and human services, Eureka; Lauren Aiello, sophomore in secondary education, Overland Park; and Danielle Young, junior in family studies and human services, Ulysses.

Wildcat Warm-up is an opportunity for new students to spend three days and two nights at K-State the summer before their first semester at K-State. The program's purpose is to establish connections to current students, faculty and staff, as well as to teach student success strategies and K-State traditions. Wildcat Warm-up is in addition to orientation and enrollment.

"Wildcat Warm-up is a special experience that really gets new students ready to be successful for their first semester at K-State," said Tamara Bauer, associate coordinator of K-State's new student services. "With programming components to address academic success, healthy relationships, involvement through clubs and organizations and residential experiences, Wildcat Warm-up provides new students with a way to get acclimated to campus before classes begin in August."

Wildcat Warm-up, which is in its seventh year, will offer two programs this summer: June 11-13 and June 18-20.
