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 gets cultured with 'Taste of Home' fair
K-State Salina hosted its first Taste of Home fair last week to recognize different cultures within the campus community. This fair provided an opportunity for the international students to educate others on the cuisine and culture of their hometown. 

Five countries were represented at the fair and displayed such food as coconut balls, chicken curry and century eggs for guests to taste. The event was hosted by the Diversity Club's multicultural connections committee who look forward to bringing this event back to campus next year.

K-State Salina represents at the Peer Mentor Institute 

Supplying next year's student leaders with ideas, skills and training, K-State Salina participated in the Peer Mentor Institute at Fort Hays State University. A delegation of ten students that represented resident assistants, orientation leaders, student ambassadors, tour guides and student government leaders attended this past weekend, and are now excited to bring those new ideas back to campus. 

 

A few examples of the workshops students attended were focused on the importance of time management and how to implement talent and skill management in a group. K-State Salina has consistently held a large presence each year at the conference as the number of student leaders continues to flourish. All participants received a certificate of completion acknowledging the time they took to better themselves as leaders on campus.

 

The K-State Salina attendees were: Elliot Rogers, Micah Klein, Cooper Potts, Nick Koch, Kendy Edmonds, Rachael Luna, Zach Dahl, Austin Bally and Ian Bonsall, Amy Sellers and Darryl Glenn served as their advisors.

 

For more information on the visit, contact Amy Sellers at amyeb@ksu.edu. 

 


A high-five is one of the most recognizable ways two people can share excitement or celebrate a job well done. K-State Salina's CEO and Dean Verna Fitzsimmons awards her high-five each week to honor faculty, staff and students for their dedication to the university.
