WoKS Walks
March 29- May 10
In front of Hale Library

On Wednesdays, WoKS walks! Join us every Wednesday from March 29- May 10 to go on a walk over the lunch hour. We have mapped out a specific route that will take us through and around campus for 2.5 miles. This should only take us about 50 minutes. We know a lot of people get stuck at their desks over the lunch hour but let’s make an effort to get moving on Wednesdays! You can take a look at the Campus Calorie Map here. Please check our Facebook for cancellations. We hope to see you there!

Miss K-State Helping Hands
Tuesday, April 11

The Women of K-State are celebrating women by supporting Miss K-State through volunteer efforts.

The Women of K-State will be on hand to help during the evening by serving as greeters, collecting funds and supporting backstage efforts. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet some of the talented women of K-State! If you would like to volunteer, please RSVP HERE by April 6. Volunteer specifics will be shared with those who sign up, closer to the event.
