2015 fall shred day
An annual Fall Shred Day is sponsored on the K-State Salina campus to properly dispose of university paper records.  The 2015 Fall Shred Day collection will be 8:30-11 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 06, in the service and delivery area behind the Technology Center building.  Departments can place paper documents with personal identity information - Social Security numbers, birth dates, credit card numbers, etc. - in bags or boxes and deliver to the collection area.  Please do not leave the materials to be shredded unattended.

Documents for shredding include: Scantron forms; greenbar grade sheets; rosters printed from K-State Online, kSIS, SIS, etc.; papers with personal identity information; data with credit card information; personnel files; and more. Papers can be left in ring binders, file folders and hanging file folders for shredding. All paper must be dry. For a quick look at retention of documents:
* Personnel records should be retained for the entire time the employee is active and then five years after termination.
* Appointment records: Classified, unclassified, hourly and graduate student appointment and termination records (PER-38, PER-39, PER 40, PER-41, PER-42); conditional appointment agreement; I-9 employment eligibility form 5AT/D.
* Time and leave records: Classified, unclassified, student, and hourly time-worked and leave-used records 5/D.

To determine which records can be included, please refer to the university's records retention policy and schedule, PPM Chapter 3090. If you have any questions about the retention length of records, please contact university archivist Cliff Hight at or 785-532-3420.

What happens to the paper once it leaves campus? All paper is shred to one-half inch particulate size, then mixed and tumbled and eventually compressed under 70,000 pounds of pressure into paper bales. The bales are transported to a paper mill and recycled into other paper goods. For more information about this event, contact:
* Salina campus:  Information Systems, 785-826-2666

Shred day is made possible with the help from the Information Technology Assistance Center on the Manhattan Campus.
Important voter registration information
The United States government requires that universities provide voter registration information to all U.S. citizens who are enrolled students. Voter registration is optional, and you are NOT required to register or to vote. However, you are encouraged to consider becoming a registered voter so that your voice may be heard by casting your ballot for various local, state and federal elections and referenda.

To register to vote in Kansas you must: 
  • Be a citizen of the United States; a resident of Kansas and 18 by the next election;
  • Have received final discharge from imprisonment, parole, or conditional release if convicted of a felony;
  • Not claim the right to vote in any other location or under any other name;
  • Not be excluded from voting for mental incompetence by a court of competent jurisdiction;
  • Be registered to vote at least 21 days prior to the election in which you wish to vote.

If you wish to learn more about your rights and responsibilities as a Kansas voter, go to the Kansas Secretary of State website at, or if you to wish vote in Kansas, go to to obtain a "Kansas 
Voter Registration Application and Instructions". 

If you wish to register to vote in any other state or the District of Columbia, please go to for voter registration instructions specific to each state or download the "National Mail Voter Registration Form" PDF file which may be easily completed and mailed to the applicable state office whose address is provided. Please note that each state has registration deadlines that must be met in order to be eligible to vote. Most states require voters be registered (completed voter registration form received by the appropriate state office) by no later than 15 days prior to the election in which the voter wishes to participate. 

The "Kansas Voter Registration Application" is also available at the Library on the Salina campus and at the Office of Student Activities and Services at the Union on the Manhattan campus.

Wine Walk 2015

This last week, K-State Salina celebrated the end of its 50th year celebration festivities with the Art of the Science Wine Walk. This year, the event was held in the Aviation Center, highlighting the aviation programs on campus. Over 60 guests attended and enjoyed numerous aviation displays including flight simulators, aircraft maintenance projects and a variety of aircraft on the ramp, including the new G36 Bonanza the university recently took delivery of. While touring the aviation facilities, guests were treated with a variety of gourmet hors d'oeuvres with complimenting wine pairings. Aside from the displays, a string quartet provided entertainment in the hangar and Willie the Wildcat made an appearance for photo ops.  

This is the second annual Art of the Science Wine Walk and it focuses on highlighting different program's labs on campus each year.

If you have any questions, please contact Kirsten Zoller, events coordinator, at  

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.
High-five Marlene Walker!

Sept 11: The Art of the Science Wine Walk highlighting our aviation programs this year and featuring some great wines and food pairing as well as some photographs taken by our aviation students and faculty.  President Schulz attended and really enjoyed getting up experience the simulators and check out our airplanes and other teaching equipment.  As a surprise, Willy showed up for fun photo opportunities and the AVM hanger was alive with beautiful live string music.  This is quickly becoming a tradition and I am looking forward to hearing all about next year's event!
So Cheers to 50 years!  Past and future.
