Student Guide to Help and Resources: One Stop Shop

Get involved

K-State offers more than 475 student-run organizations to ensure you have what you need to succeed. At K-State, we're dedicated to a customized college experience.

Leadership opportunities 

Take time to build your leadership skills and serve your community. Make a difference one student at a time by leading one of K-State's many organizations or tutoring a fellow student. Lead your campus and beyond by participating in the Student Governing Association, helping the Union Program Council plan local events or choosing a minor in leadership studies.

Volunteer experiences

Opportunities to give back are endless. Try HandsOn Kansas State, which services campus in the community and abroad. Join one of the many student sustainability groups. Thinking about joining a fraternity or sorority? Greeks at K-State rack up over 60,000 hours of service and raise more than $300,000 for charity each year.

Research opportunities

Undergraduate students: Challenge yourselves with programs like the Developing Scholars Program and University Honors Program.  For more information on undergraduate research opportunities, visit the Office of Undergraduate Research & Creative Inquiry website.  Graduate students: Work with your major professor to select your program of study and dive into research in the subject that you love.

K-State 360

Out-of-classroom activities are often as important as in-class experiences. K-State 360 helps navigate involvement while tracking progress, transforming students into well-rounded individuals. Activities are placed into a series of categories, guiding students toward an inclusive K-State experience and a developed skill set that will give students an edge. Once students complete all the category requirements, students will gain the K-State 360 designation to share with potential employers and graduate schools. Students learn to communicate involvement and raise their potential through K-State 360.
