And from the friendly folks in the “Little Apple,” Manhattan, KS:

Students can access both the application and the contract at http://www.housing.ksu.edu.

The $400 initial payment is refundable until June 1st.
Juniors are invited to visit K-State for a Junior Day to explore all the opportunities available as future students. There are three remaining open dates this semester, December 1st, December 4th and December 8th. If they are not able to make any of those dates, we’ll also have several Junior Days in the spring. The program begins at 8:30 AM and will end at 4:00 PM. For more information and to register, visit http://www.k-state.edu/admissions/juniors.

Spring into TCA 2018-V5
For seniors looking to get connected with an approved organization/opportunity for their 20 volunteer hours, such a list for the 2017-2018 school year is available here.
Here’s the 411 on GoPo and its community service requirement:
- In order to meet graduation requirements, students must complete 20 hours of community service.
- To count, these hours must be:
- completed with a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization
- completed outside of the student’s school day
- Other requirements of note:
- Students may volunteer for a religious organization as long as he/she is not engaged in religious instruction. For example, a student teaching Bible Study will NOT count, but a student helping to build a “Habitat for Humanity” house with his/her church WILL count.
- Students may volunteer for an LPS school or organization, as long as he/she is not performing regular job duties in which someone is already assigned. For example, a student helping with locker checkout will NOT count but a student volunteering for a PTO Fun Night WILL count.
Don’t hesitate to contact a GoPo teacher or your counselor if you have other questions. 🙂
