Spring studio information:

Students wishing to move to a different location in studio need to see Jody in 302 Seaton Hall BEFORE moving. She will then go with you to see if that space is truly available for moving into and if the move supports critical mass of students per studio. If you have already moved, see Jody immediately for studio map updating.


All leftover holiday decorations need cleared from the studio right away. They do not meet Fire Marshall standards and it is imperative they are removed.

There will be an All College Forum tomorrow, January 23 at 10 am in the K-State Union Forum Hall with updates on the Seaton enhancement project.
