AT&T contributes to the K-State Welcome Center
AT&T has made a gift of $100,000 to Kansas State University for the information display in the K-State Welcome Center.
Fundraising is underway for the welcome center, which will be located in the east side of Memorial Stadium. This unique facility will be one of the first in the country to provide a central location for students and families to connect with new student services, admissions, financial aid, housing and dining services, and career and employment services. The information display, funded by AT&T, will be a multi-screen audio/visual centerpiece for the lobby area of the welcome center. This feature will be a prominent part of the welcoming experience, transmitting greetings, K-State information and highlights, and news and weather information.
AT&T is committed to advancing education, strengthening communities and improving lives. “By investing in the welcome center at Kansas State University, we know we’re making a positive impact on students and their families,” said Steve Hahn, president of AT&T Kansas. “We strive to support programs and projects that create learning opportunities and promote academics. With new student services and career and employment services being housed in the welcome center, we know we’ll be helping students at both the beginning and end of their college careers.”
Pat Bosco, vice president of student life and dean of students at K-State, reiterates the importance of the welcome center to K-State. “Located in the east side of Memorial Stadium, the welcome center preserves and honors our past while preparing our students for the future,” said Bosco. “We deeply appreciate friends of K-State, such as AT&T, helping to make the welcome center a reality and in the process, supporting our students through every facet of their time at K-State.”
