​Unplanned is the inspiring true story of one woman's journey of transformation.

All Abby Johnson ever wanted to do was help women. As one of the youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors in the nation, she was involved in upwards of 22,000 abortions and counseled countless women about their reproductive choices. Her passion surrounding a woman's right to choose even led her to become a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, fighting to enact legislation for the cause she so deeply believed in.
 
Until the day she saw something that changed everything, leading Abby Johnson to join her former enemies at 40 Days For Life, and become one of the most ardent pro-life speakers in America.​

We have been working with Westar to provide a window of time to allow them to perform maintenance and repairs on their electrical substation located on our campus.  This occurs every 5 to 7 years.  After consideration of many different dates the outage has been set to occur on Sunday, May 19, 2019 from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. . This will not affect the art compound location, the Sauder Alumni Center, the Earl Center or the Trusler Complex.  Emergency generators will be in operation at Cremer Hall (to keep IT's main computer operation up), Science Hall (to keep designated essential pieces of equipment operating), Police and Safety, Memorial Union (for emergency lights and cold food storage) and the Power Plant.  IT on-line operations will be operational from off campus during this time.  The campus will be closed to the public during this time.  There will be no electrical power, lights or HVAC.  This will be a "hard" shut off and turn on.  Please be sure to back up and turn off any computers or equipment that can be affected by this.  Please contact me if you have any questions regarding this outage at mrunge@emporia.edu .  We regret any inconvenience this will cause but I'm sure that a planned outage is far better than having it unplanned.   Thanks for your cooperation.

​A tornado is a violently rotating column of air expanding from the base of a thunderstorm down to the ground. Tornadoes are capable of completely destroying well-made structures, uprooting trees, and hurling objects through the air like deadly missiles. Tornadoes can occur at any time of day or night and any time of the year.

NOTIFICATION

Tornado watch notifications will be posted on ESU's Facebook and Twitter (@emporiastate) pages. Please follow those pages to help stay updated for any inclement weather updates.

If able, tornado warning notifications will be sent via ESU's mass notification system.

OUTDOOR WARNING SYSTEM

One of the ways campus will be notified of an emergency is the Outdoor Warning System (siren).  If you hear the siren at a time other than the scheduled weekly test (Monday at noon), you should immediately seek cover in the nearest building or facility and seek additional information through other communication systems.  The siren is NOT used to signal all clear.

ADVISORY

Severe weather is possible for the day. Stay updated on the weather and plan accordingly.

WATCH

Conditions are favorable for the development of severe weather in the next several hours.  Plan Now- Stay Alert and Aware!

WARNING

Severe weather conditions are occurring or imminent. 

Take Action Now- Shelter from the Storm!

SHELTERING

  • First choice, go to a basement or engineered safe room above or below ground.
  • Second choice, get to the lowest floor possible and shelter in an interior room or closet.
  • Stay away from windows!
  • Get underneath something sturdy.
  • Cover your neck and head – use a helmet if you have one available.

A tornado is a violently rotating column of air expanding from the base of a thunderstorm down to the ground. Tornadoes are capable of completely destroying well-made structures, uprooting trees, and hurling objects through the air like deadly missiles. Tornadoes can occur at any time of day or night and any time of the year.

NOTIFICATION

Tornado watch notifications will be posted on ESU's Facebook and Twitter (@emporiastate) pages. Please follow those pages to help stay updated for any inclement weather updates.

If able, tornado warning notifications will be sent via ESU's mass notification system.

OUTDOOR WARNING SYSTEM

One of the ways campus will be notified of an emergency is the Outdoor Warning System (siren).  If you hear the siren at a time other than the scheduled weekly test (Monday at noon), you should immediately seek cover in the nearest building or facility and seek additional information through other communication systems.  The siren is NOT used to signal all clear.

ADVISORY

Severe weather is possible for the day. Stay updated on the weather and plan accordingly.

WATCH

Conditions are favorable for the development of severe weather in the next several hours.  Plan Now- Stay Alert and Aware!

WARNING

Severe weather conditions are occurring or imminent. 

Take Action Now- Shelter from the Storm!

SHELTERING

First choice, go to a basement or engineered safe room above or below ground.

Second choice, get to the lowest floor possible and shelter in an interior room or closet.

Stay away from windows!

Get underneath something sturdy.

Cover your neck and head – use a helmet if you have one available.

Know your shelter location and the amount of time it takes to get to shelter.

A reminder that during inclement weather conditions the campus community should either listen to KVOE AM radio station (1400) or  Kansas Public Radio; or  watch KWCH , WIBW, KSNT or KTKA television stations; or access the home page for the University ( www.emporia.edu ) for a possible closing of the University due to inclement weather.  There will be a notification sent only if there is a closing to be announced and the University's Text/Email Emergency Notification System will be activated (for those who have this service).  There will be no notification if the University is to remain open.

The prediction, at this time, is for frigid temperatures and blowing snow to start Saturday evening and continue into early Sunday afternoon.  Frigid temperatures will continue into next week.   The crews will be out pre-treating and clearing roads, parking lots and sidewalks on Saturday.  We will also be working early Sunday and throughout the day clearing the surfaces.  Please keep on treated surfaces, pay attention and take care.

During the weather event, also be aware that crews from the Academic, Residential and Memorial Union facilities will be working and treating around their respective buildings and entrances. Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331) or to Police and Safety (5337). You can view Snow Removal Maps indicating the priority and stages of work at http://www.emporia.edu/alerts/documents/campus_snow_removal_map.pdf.  Even with cleared walks and entrances, everyone should take extreme care due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring during and after each event.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance (call Facilities @ 341-5331) if needed or arrange with their departments to remain at home.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful during and after the weather event.

Thank you.

A reminder that during inclement weather conditions the campus community should either listen to KVOE AM radio station (1400) or  Kansas Public Radio; or  watch KWCH , WIBW, KSNT or KTKA television stations; or access the home page for the University ( www.emporia.edu ) for a possible closing of the University due to inclement weather.  There will be a notification sent only if there is a closing to be announced and the University's Text/Email Emergency Notification System will be activated (for those who have this service).  There will be no notification if the University is to remain open.

The prediction, at this time, is for freezing drizzle and sleet to start Tuesday evening and continue into Wednesday early morning.  Very little accumulation but could be very slick. The crews will be out pre-treating roads, parking lots and sidewalks on Tuesday.  We will also be working early Wednesday and throughout the day treating the surfaces.  Please keep on treated surfaces, pay attention and take care.

During the weather event, also be aware that crews from the Academic, Residential and Memorial Union facilities will be working and treating around their respective buildings and entrances. Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331) or to Police and Safety (5337). You can view Snow Removal Maps indicating the priority and stages of work at http://www.emporia.edu/alerts/documents/campus_snow_removal_map.pdf.  Even with cleared walks and entrances, everyone should take extreme care due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring during and after each event.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance (call Facilities @ 341-5331) if needed or arrange with their departments to remain at home.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful during and after the weather event.

Thank you.

Sarah Smarsh, author of “Heartland: A Memoir of Working Hard and Being Broke in the Richest Country on Earth” will be the keynote speaker at the 2019 Tallgrass Science and Nature Writing Workshop

Smarsh will deliver the conference keynote on Saturday, April 13, at the Emporia Arts Center. She will also be part of the workshop faculty, and will lead a session earlier in the day for participants.

“Sarah Smarsh has emerged as one of the most significant voices about contemporary life in America,” said Max McCoy, a professor of journalism and the director of the Center for Great Plains Studies at ESU. “She grew up in Kansas, and she writes exceedingly well about place, in both the geographic and the cultural sense. We’re grateful that she has agreed to share her talent and insight with our participants, and to provide the keynote on Saturday.” 

The New York Times recently called Smarsh’s new book "a deeply humane memoir with crackles of clarifying insight" that takes its place among a growing body of important works about class in America. 

The two-day workshop will begin Friday, April 12, with  field activities in the Flint Hills. On Saturday, all sessions will be held at the Emporia Arts Center, 815 Commercial. Smarsh’s keynote, at 3 p.m., will wrap up the workshop.

A reminder that during inclement weather conditions the campus community should either listen to KVOE AM radio station (1400) or  Kansas Public Radio; or  watch KWCH , WIBW, KSNT or KTKA television stations; or access the home page for the University ( www.emporia.edu ) for a possible closing of the University due to inclement weather.  There will be a notification sent only if there is a closing to be announced and the University's Text/Email Emergency Notification System will be activated (for those who have this service).  There will be no notification if the University is to remain open.

The prediction, at this time, is for snow to start Tuesday afternoon and continue into Wednesday early morning.  The heaviest accumulation is between 5 pm on Tuesday and 5 am on Wednesday.  We could get between 2 to 6 inches of snow and a possibility of freezing drizzle on Wednesday morning.   The crews will out pre-treating roads, parking lots and sidewalks on Tuesday.  Crews will work throughout the day and evening on Tuesday to treat and clear surfaces.  Please be aware that surfaces may be icy and slick. We will also be working on Wednesday to complete the treating and clearing of the snow.  Please keep on treated surfaces, pay attention and take care.

During the weather event, also be aware that crews from the Academic, Residential and Memorial Union facilities will be working and treating around their respective buildings and entrances. Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331) or to Police and Safety (5337). You can view Snow Removal Maps indicating the priority and stages of work at http://www.emporia.edu/alerts/documents/campus_snow_removal_map.pdf.  Even with cleared walks and entrances, everyone should take extreme care due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring during and after each event.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance (call Facilities @ 341-5331) if needed or arrange with their departments to remain at home.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful during and after the weather event.

Thank you.

He did not want to share his experiences with her at first, but five years later decided to tell her his story.  In her bestselling book, Auschwitz #32407, Geise shares the details of Joe's time surviving the atrocities of the Holocaust.  
Now, in his nineties, Joe reveals how he survived several of the most notorious concentration camps when so many others perished. 
Please join us on Wednesday, February 20 at 7pm in the Memorial Union Webb Hall to hear how Joe's story is one of discovering light in the darkest of places, an inspiration for us all.  If you are interested in the book, or learning more about Geise or Joe, visit http://www.nancygeise.com/
