Spring 2022 Events

Passport to the World event on April 27th, 5:15-7:15 p.m.

Passport to the world event

Are you curious to explore the world without leaving Manhattan? To discover new cultures through their languages, cuisine, music and books? Get ready to take off with K-State Passport to the World! This interactive event for 6th to 9th graders invites students to campus to meet faculty and students from K-State Modern Languages, Primary Texts and K-State Libraries to learn how K-State connects its students to a wider world. Participants will learn new songs, how to describe their feelings about music in another language, explore ancient graffiti, and participate in hands-on activities in the maker spaces of Hale Library. Join us on Wednesday, April 27 from 5:00-7:15 pm. We'll start things off with a global pizza party with K-State students to learn how they've explored the world through K-State, break into smaller groups to enjoy hands-on activities and engagement to create crafts projects that students will take with them, and K-State swag to take with you when you leave along with an atlas to continue your exploration of the world. If your child is interested in participating in the event, please register here. Also, please make sure that you have the waiver form completed. It can be scanned & emailed to modlang@ksu.edu or turned in on the day of the event..
