There is the prediction of freezing drizzle and ice accumulation starting tomorrow (Friday) afternoon/evening and continuing through the holiday weekend. If icing has occurred please stay off campus if at all possible.  University Facilities, Residential Life Facilities and Memorial Union Facilities will be working to clear the ice as quickly as possible.  Unlike snow, ice is very difficult to break up and move.  It will take salt treatments and Mother Nature to help with the clearing.  Please take extreme care if you come to work over the weekend. There is a chance that power disruptions may occur due to the ice over the weekend.  Please turn off any electrical equipment (especially computers) that are not necessary.  Remember when you return to work on Tuesday that even with cleared walks and entrances, extreme care should be taken due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring.  Slick spots can and will appear throughout the day.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance when they feel unsure of the conditions. University Facilities (5331) will provide assistance for those who feel they need help from their car to the building.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful while this cleanup continues.   Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331) and we will address it as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your cooperation and please be safe.

USPS announced price changes for Mailing & Shipping Services

GREAT NEWS...... the USPS is lowering the cost of postage when you use a postage meter. (And, by the way, they are raising the price of stamps Effective January 22, 2017
 

First-Class® MailOld PriceNew Price
Stamp Prices47 cents49 cents
Postage Meter Prices46.5 cents46 cents (3 cent savings)
Each additional ounce21 cents21 cents
Postcards34 cents34 cents


We think this trend will continue because the Postal Service sees the value of postage meters including benefits such as eliminating trips to the post office, keeping track of postage spend, and the convenience of printing different denominations for letters and packages depending upon your individual needs.

In addition to First-Class Mail, the Postal Service announced changes to Shipping Services which includes popular Priority Mail® and Priority Mail Express® service levels. Some prices are going up, some are going down. Your savings depends on how you prepare and send items.

Other rates will show increases so please be aware of how this could impact your mailing and shipping budget.

Students — news releases about scholarship awards will be sent to your local media while you’re on break. You will receive an email when your news has been shared.​

Every year, there is confusion, so I’m hopeful this will clear it up. The awards being publicized are for the CURRENT school year — 2016-17. You already have used these scholarships for the fall semester (funding for presidential, presidential renewal, departmental, etc.) and they may continue to be part of your financial aid award for the spring semester.

 

Just a gentle reminder — the four-week winter break is a great time to get your information together to apply for scholarships for the NEXT year, 2017-18. Some scholarships have application deadlines in February and March, so you could work on them now before classes begin again. For more information about scholarship opportunities, go to http://www.emporia.edu/finaid/scholarships/

 

And, the winter break is an ideal time to complete your FAFSA if you haven’t already done so. With a change to an earlier deadline for FAFSA, your application will use tax information from 2015, so you no longer have to wait for taxes to be filed by you or your parents. For more information, go to http://www.emporia.edu/finaid/changes-to-the-fafsa.html.

 

If you have questions about your news releases, please contact Gwen Larson at glarson1@emporia.edu or 620-341-5528. If you have questions about financial aid, scholarships or the FAFSA, please contact Financial Aid at finaid@emporia.edu or 620-341-5457. You can also find information at http://www.emporia.edu/finaid/.​

There is the prediction of possible freezing drizzle Friday morning. Please take extreme care when you come to work. Facilities crews (including Memorial Union and Residential Life) will be working to clear sidewalks, roads and entries.  Even with cleared walks and entrances, extreme care should be taken due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring.  Slick spots can and will appear throughout the day.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance when they feel unsure of the conditions. University Facilities (5331) will provide assistance for those who feel they need help from their car to the building.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful while this cleanup continues.   Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331) and we will address it as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your cooperation and please be safe.

Facilities crews (including Memorial Union and Residential Life) will be working to clear sidewalks, roads and entries.  Even with cleared walks and entrances, extreme care should be taken due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring.  Slick spots can and will appear overnight.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance when they feel unsure of the conditions. University Facilities (5331) will provide assistance for those who feel they need help from their car to the building.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful while this cleanup continues.   Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331) and we will address it as quickly as possible.​

Thank you for your cooperation and please be safe.

December 1st is recognized by the National Weather Service in Topeka, KS as Winter Weather Awareness Day.  Perfect timing to prepare for winter weather with the potential for precipitation and colder temperatures right around the corner.

Did you know in Kansas there have been approximately 300 vehicle related deaths in the past 20 years where snow or ice played some role?

37 people killed by tornadoes (none on interstates or the turnpike)

23 people killed by flash flooding (80% involving vehicles)

10 people killed by lightning

~300 people killed from vehicle accidents in ice/snow


How can you reduce this risk?  The takeaway point is to slow down, wear a seatbelt, and pay attention when driving in ice and snow!  Additional resources and safety information available at https://www.weather.gov/top/wwad.​

ESU received the highest number of votes by percentage of students enrolled to win the initial “Don’t Text #Just Drive” fall contest among seven Kansas Universities.  The contest, organized by the Kansas Insurance Department, announced this morning that in all, nearly 35,000 pledge votes were cast by students, alumni and supporters of each university, all taking the pledge not to text while driving.  Emporia State’s 3,749 pledge votes counted as 63.68 percent of the total student population, the highest percentage among the participating universities.

A national study found that three out of four people surveyed admitted to texting while driving, even though they agreed that the activity is dangerous to themselves and others.


Thank you to all of the faculty, staff, and students who participated in the campaign by taking the pledge!  Please continue to uphold your commitment to “Don’t Text #Just Drive!”​

Dear ESU community,

Some international students have informed us they do not have plans for Thanksgiving Day. If you have an extra space in your dinner table, we’d like to ask if you could take the opportunity to share this tradition with an international student. Thanksgiving is a new celebration to most international students; therefore, it’s a great opportunity to introduce this great American holiday.

 

If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Rozita Smith (rsmith25@emporia.edu) or call the Office of International Education at 341-5374. ​

Happy Thanksgiving!

Since the start of the Iraq and Afghanistan war efforts in 2001, over 2 million troops have been deployed. These wars have amounted in over 3 million deployments which means that many service members have been deployed numerous times (Zinzow et al., 2012). Although more service members are returning home from these wars, they are also returning with significant rates of mental health disorders (Garcia et al., 2014). According to a 2012 Department of Veterans Affairs study, 22 veterans die by suicide every day, exceeding the rate of suicide in the civilian population (Kemp & Bosarte, 2013). When compared to the civilian population, male veterans are twice as likely to die by suicide (Lazar, 2014). This high rate of suicide demonstrates a significant need for providing quality mental health services to military members. Military members are faced with a large array of social and psychological stresses during both times of deployment and even when not deployed (Monroe, 2012). The Student Veteran Association is raising awareness about veteran suicide in honor of Veteran’s Day. They have been making chalk outlines around campus that symbolize the 22 veterans that die by suicide each day. If you would like to help them or support this effort please contact the SVA president Michael White at mwhite10@g.emporia.edu

We have started receiving a number of reports about phone calls which are scams to gain information about ESU BPC cards. They phone call starts out as an automated call talking about getting a better rate on the BPC account. It requests you press 9 for details and then connects you with a person. The caller ID is showing different phone numbers on campus. This is to make it more likely for you to answer the phone call. If you receive one of these phone calls please hang up and do not give out any information related to the BPC card. If you have any questions, please contact the IT Help Desk at (620) 341-5555.​

To the ESU Student Body,

Let me start by thanking all of the Emporia State students that have come to our home games and even some road games this year.  Your support has been awesome and our football team really appreciates it. 

Second I want to say that I feel our marching band has really stepped it up.  Whether it’s been joining us on the Hornet Walk or rocking Welch Stadium during the games, they’ve had our back this year.

I truly believe that college football can help bring a campus together. It’s a once a week show that allows students to relax away from the pressures of school and work.  And we happen to put a pretty good product on the field. The Hornets are 7-1 and are in the top ten in the nation.

Our seniors have a chance to do something that’s never been done before at Emporia State – go to the playoffs in three of their four years.  This Saturday will be the biggest test we’ve had since the first game of the year. 

We need your support in the stands, not just during the game but before the game as well.  Line the street from the Union to the Stadium for our Hornet Walk at 11 a.m.  Go tailgate and have a great time until 1:30. Then start making your way into Welch Stadium so you’re ready to go when the band takes the field 20 minutes before kickoff and we honor our 21 seniors ten minutes before kick-off. 

If you’ve been coming to the games all year, make sure you come back on Saturday and bring a few friends.  If you’ve never been to a game, come out and see what you’ve been missing.
