There’s a stereotype that at a public university, students don’t get the personal attention they might at a smaller school. But that doesn’t hold true at K-State, a university with a decades-long tradition of putting students first.

K-State created K-State First — a series of programs that help freshmen establish a great foundation for the rest of their college career and ensure their first-year experiences are the best they can be.

K-State First programs are:
•    CAT Communities, where small groups of students with similar interests take courses together
•    First-Year Seminars that feature small classes with lots of interaction
•    K-State Book Network, the all-university reading program that’s bringing together students through reading a common book
•    The GPS Program, which matches students with K-State faculty members, staff and alumni who take an interest in each student personally

“We want every student to have a great first year,” said Professor of English Greg Eiselein, Coffman University Distinguished Teaching Scholar and director of K-State First. “K-State First is an integrated effort to create an outstanding university experience for first-year students. Students love being in the small classes, getting to know professors outside the classroom and being part of a social support system.”
