Parents and Family Association

Health & safety

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 @k-state.edu 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.

In Sept. 2016, K-State was named one of the 50 safest large universities in America by College Choice. Your student's safety is important to us.

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.
