KSU Wireless live on Salina campus

Wireless access on the Salina campus has recently been changed.  These changes are the culmination of user feedback, upgrades to core networking equipment, installation and configuration of new servers, along with many months of research and effort.  The Information Systems team is excited to finally be able to implement this upgrade and to improve the wireless experience for students, faculty and staff.

What changes are being made?
In order to provide a more seamless wireless experience between the Manhattan and Salina campuses, the "KSU Wireless" and "KSU Guest" wireless networks will replace Salina's "K-State.wpa2" and "K-State.guest" wireless networks.  There will additionally be a "KSU Housing" secure wireless network available in Schilling and Harbin Halls.

The new "KSU Guest" network will function the same as the previous "K-State.guest" network.  The secure "KSU Wireless" and "KSU Housing" networks will require that you log in with your K-State eID and password to connect.  If you have been using the SecureW2 supplicant to connect to "K-State.wpa2", you can safely remove it after connecting to the new secure wireless network.

Where can I find out more? 
For more information, please click here. If you have any questions, please contact Matt Janzen in information services, at janzen@ksu.edu.
K-State Salina hosts 'Poverty Simulation'

In an effort to bring awareness to real world poverty and the struggles families go through to make ends meet, K-State Salina's family studies and human services department is collaborating with Circles of the Heartland to conduct a Poverty Simulation. On March 28, students, faculty and the community are invited to attend and participate in the demonstration, which runs from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the College Center conference room.

 

The poverty simulation will be an intensive experiential workshop in which participants role play by either being a part of a low-income family or the representative of a service/community agency. The simulation is followed by a debriefing in which the participants can discuss their experiences and observations from various perspectives. The intended result is to give attendees an increased understanding of the issues low-income individuals and families must struggle with every day to make ends meet. 


 
There is also a need for volunteers to be the townspeople, which requires a time commitment from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Consumer Credit Counseling, K-State Salina and St. Francis Community Services are sponsoring the event.

 

Students are free with their school ID and faculty and staff are $20. You can register by filling out the form attached below or by contacting Shelly Martin, Circles of the Heartland coordinator, or Rodney Denholm, Circles of the Heartland coach, at 785-827-6731.

K-State Salina celebrates happy acts
Happy acts are small things with a BIG impact. They're every day, thoughtful expressions that others do for us and that we intentionally do for others.

In an effort to spread happy acts, K-State Salina participated in the International Happy Day campaign this past Friday. There was a wall available for faculty, staff and students to write how they plan to share happiness. 

Numerous members of campus came out to support the day and were treated to wristbands, treats and fun music.
