This summer, I had the amazing opportunity to visit Thailand for a two-week long study abroad program through Loop Abroad. I went with a small group of K-State students, but we were mixed with students from all over the country. We spent one week in the city of Chiang Mai learning about small animal...

The other day I was helping my brother move equipment from field to field. As we began our three-hour journey through rural Kansas, I found myself reflecting, and often in awe, of the raw beauty rural Kansas has to offer.

Allow me to give some background on myself. My name is Kayley, and I come from...

It is officially that time of year. Mid- semester when the newness of all our fall classes starts to wear off and the exhaustion sets in. You can see it on the faces of every student you pass in the halls around this time of the year, and it’s not even finals time yet. While maintaining the crazy bu...

While living in a world where social media, games and television shows are continuously attached to our hands, it is extremely easy to become distracted, and occasionally extremely difficult to get things done. Distractions not only can increase the time needed to complete a task, but it can decreas...

Before I even got to K-State, I thought I had a fairly good plan of how my time would go. I’d move up here, keep the same major (ha), and graduate in 4 years. Maybe along the way join a few clubs, do some traveling, make friends, and do the things college students can get away with like ordering Piz...
