Health & safety


As part of K-State's comprehensive and proactive approach to encourage students to have a healthy and safe college experience, the university is requiring most new students to complete the web-based Alcohol.Edu for College program.  All newly enrolled, degree-seeking students on the Manhattan and Salina campuses who are under the age of 22 on the first day of classes are required to complete the program.  This project is sponsored by the K-State Parents and Family Association. 

The parents and family members of K-State students have free access to the program.

Student concerns - academic and personal

The Office of Student Life is a resource for parents when they have concerns about their students. Trained professionals are available to discuss campus resources, strategies for parents, and will reach out to students when assistance is needed.

K-State Alerts

K-State students, faculty, and staff can sign up for the University's emergency notification system.  This text messaging and automated phone calling system gives campus authorities the ability to communicate emergency information quickly to the university community. Additional methods of communication emergency information include broadcast e-mails to all accounts, alert beacons, police public address systems, campus carillon in the Anderson Hall tower, tornado warning sirens, K-State staff carrying radios, and postings to the K-State website.

University Life Café

University Life Café is an interactive website designed to engage college students to promote emotional wellness that can lead to academic success. This initiative is one part of a comprehensive, campus-wide support plan that includes programming and training for students, faculty and staff, and the services of the Counseling Services at K-State.
