The City of Emporia will be starting, on September 24, 2018, a paving project on Merchant from 12th Avenue north to the Interstate turnoff.  This part of the project is estimated to be completed by the mid-October.  Due to Merchant Street being 2 and sometimes 3 lanes, one lane of traffic will be open as the work will be completed one lane at a time.  Please watch for directions and be aware of the equipment and workers.  This will disrupt access to parking lots and entries/exits to campus at different times during this time period.  We will work on alternate routes on getting to the west parking lots as needed throughout the project.

Additionally, Westar (Evergy) will be starting on the relocation of the overhead power lines to underground service in October and will continue to March 2019.  There should be little disruption to normal vehicular and pedestrian traffic.  Most work will boring underground.  There will be three above ground boxes that will need roping off during this work.  Work will be from the intersection of Commercial Street and 12th Avenue west to the intersection of Merchant Street and 12th Avenue north to the Interstate turnoff.

More information will be posted as the project progresses.

Access to the west parking lots on campus (west of Cremer Hall, Science Hall, WAW Library and north of WAW Library) will be affected by the upcoming City of Emporia Pavement Project on Merchant Street.  To accommodate this work we will temporarily be accessing the west lots by reversing the direction of travel through the parking lot north of WAW Library from east to west and have people drive through this lot from Kellogg Circle Drive.  We will rope off the parking spaces in this lot (except for the Handicap Parking Spaces) so that people will not try to park backwards.  We will temporarily relocate the Gold Permit parking spaces to the west and put them on existing metered spaces.  A temporary access to west parking lot map will be distributed to help illustrate this.

All access roads to campus along Merchant Street will be affected by this project.  We recommend that people should access the campus by way of Highland Street, Market Street and Kellogg Circle Drive off of 12th Avenue.  For those who use the Interstate we recommend that you use the Burlingame exit to come to campus. 

The City indicates that there will be only one lane traffic on Merchant during the project.  This may mean that a pilot car will be used.  So please follow the signs and directions that the contractor will put up.  We encourage to use patience when you arrive and leave the campus and take into account extra time to navigate to and through campus.  We've been through this a few times already and survived.  We'll survive this also.  ​

Additionally, Westar (Evergy) will be starting on the relocation of the overhead power lines to underground service in October and will continue to March 2019.  There should be little disruption to normal vehicular and pedestrian traffic.  Most work will boring underground.  There will be three above ground boxes that will need roping off during this work.  Work will be from the intersection of Commercial Street and 12th Avenue west to the intersection of Merchant Street and 12th Avenue north to the Interstate turnoff.

Topeka – In accordance with Executive Order 10-12, Governor Jeff Colyer today ordered flags to be flown at half-staff until sunset today, 9/11/18, in observance of Patriot Day.

By a joint resolution approved Dec. 18, 2001 (Public Law 107-89), Congress designated Sept. 11 of each year as Patriot Day, and by Public Law 111-13, approved April 21, 2009, requested the observance of Sept. 11 as an annually recognized National Day of Service and Remembrance.

"Today is a day for us to come together as a nation and to honor the heroes of both our past and present," said Governor Colyer. "We will never forget those we lost on 9/11, and will always try to live with the spirit of self-sacrifice given by so many patriots that day."     

Patriot Day is an annual observance to remember those who were injured or died during the terrorist attacks in the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.

​IT has launched a new form called IT Billing that works much like other OnBase billing forms.  Any departmental requests still need to be initiated thru a helpdesk ticket.  Once the work or service request has been received, IT will create a billing form, which will route for departmental approvals using the AP Approval Matrix, and when billing information has been received, the service will be performed.  Funds will be transferred from the index you provide to IT the same as the FAC Service Request process.

For a short time IT will also be billing for services that have already been performed in order to bring any outstanding billing up to date.

​IT has launched a new form called IT Billing that works much like other OnBase billing forms.  Any departmental requests still need to be initiated thru a helpdesk ticket.  Once the work or service request has been received, IT will create a billing form, which will route for departmental approvals using the AP Approval Matrix, and when billing information has been received, the service will be performed.  Funds will be transferred from the index you provide to IT the same as the FAC Service Request process.

For a short time IT will also be billing for services that have already been performed in order to bring any outstanding billing up to date.

Starting in mid-August the City of Emporia will be starting a paving project on Merchant from 12th Avenue north to the Interstate turnoff.  This part of the project is estimated to be completed by the first week of October.  This will disrupt access to parking lots and entries/exits to campus at different times during this time period.  We will work on alternate routes on getting to the west parking lots as needed throughout the project.

Additionally, Westar (Evergy) will be starting on the relocation of the overhead power lines to underground service in September and will continue to March 2019.  There should be little disruption to normal vehicular and pedestrian traffic.  Most work will boring underground.  There will be three above ground boxes that will need roping off during this work.  Work will be from the intersection of Commercial Street and 12th Avenue west to the intersection of Merchant Street and 12th Avenue north to the Interstate turnoff.

More information will be posted as the project progresses.

​To the Campus Community,

Residential Life Move-In begins on Thursday (August 16, 2018) at the Morse Complex and continues on Friday (August 17, 2018) at the Towers Complex.  To foster a smooth move-in for our students, families, and guests, we ask that you do not park in lots reserved for our arriving students.  Please refer to the maps below to review specific information for each day:

August 16, Morse move-in: https://www.emporia.edu/reslife/info/FALL%202018%20MOVE%20IN%20FACULTY%20STAFF%20PARKING%20RESTRICTIONS%20MORSE%20MOVE%20IN.pdf

On Thursday we will need the parking lots along Morse Drive from 15th Avenue to Highland Street to be open for in-coming students, parents and guests to participate in the move-in event (indicated by yellow shading on map).  These lots will be back open for public parking on Friday.

On Friday we will need the parking lots between Market Street and Highland Street from 14th Avenue to 16th Avenue to be open for in-coming students, parents and guests to participate in the move-in event.  This includes all the parking in the parking lots east of the Towers Complex and Stormont Maintenance Facility (indicated by yellow shading on map).  In addition to these lots, we will need the entire parking lot north of the Student Recreation Building, the parking lots east of the football stadium and the parking lots north of Wilson Park (these are also shaded). These lots will be open for public parking on Thursday.

Please take note of the parking availability for each day and make plans to keep clear of the lots affected by the move-in process.  It is also recommended to keep clear of the move-in areas during move-in.  There will be significant vehicular traffic around the complexes and you may find yourself in a parking queue line.

University Facilities and Residential Life appreciate your cooperation during these events and look forward to assisting and welcoming our students back to campus in a positive manner and environment.

With gratitude,

​Please mark your calendars now and plan to attend this year's Hayes Lecture on Thursday, October 18th at 7:30pm in Webb Hall.  Mr. Ron Frierson, BS 1996, will be our Hayes speaker this year. Ron serves as the Senior Associate at NAI Capital's West Los Angeles office focused primarily on retail and office development.  Ron graduated from Emporia State with a Bachelor of Science in Social Sciences in 1996, and then received his MBA from Baker University.  You may remember Ron playing on our men's basketball team during his time here.  Along with his position at NAI, he also has a radio show called Focus with Ron Frierson that airs on UBN.  Students who attend the Hayes Lecture on 10/18 can participate in the annual Doug and Nan Smith Scholarship competition based on the Hayes Lecture.  

The Hayes Lecture was established to bring ESU alumni back to campus to share principles on leadership and success.  Consider building this event into your syllabus and course requirements this fall.  Questions or need further information?  Please contact June in Career Services at jcoleman@emporia.edu

Starting in mid-August the City of Emporia will be starting a paving project on Merchant from 12th Avenue north to the Interstate turnoff.  This part of the project is estimated to be completed by the first week of October.  This will disrupt access to parking lots and entries/exits to campus at different times during this time period.  We will work on alternate routes on getting to the west parking lots as needed throughout the project.

Additionally, Westar (Energy) will be starting on the relocation of the overhead power lines to underground service in September and will continue to March 2019.  There should be little disruption to normal vehicular and pedestrian traffic.  Most work will boring underground.  There will be three above ground boxes that will need roping off during this work.  Work will be from the intersection of Commercial Street and 12th Avenue west to the intersection of Merchant Street and 12th Avenue north to the Interstate turnoff.

More information will be posted as the project progresses.

A program was initiated several years ago that places ESU faculty and staff in the role of serving as informal support persons for the various Hornet Athletic teams. Individuals volunteer time to provide support and encouragement for teams by doing such things as occasionally attending a practice, sitting on the bench or standing on the sideline/pitch for a contest, encouraging student-athletes in their academic pursuits, etc. The types of involvement and time commitment are determined by each respective Faculty Champion. Each team has as few as one and as many as four Faculty Champions. There is no specific required or limit on numbers.​

Hornet teams are as follows:

Men's Cross Country

Women's Cross Country

Football

Volleyball

Soccer

Men's  Tennis

Women's Tennis

Men's Track & Field

Women's Track & Field

Women's Basketball

Men's Basketball

Baseball

Softball​

If interested in volunteering or to learn more, contact Dr. Scott Waters, X5764 or swaters@emporia.edu.

Starting in mid-August the City of Emporia will be starting a paving project on Merchant from 12th Avenue north to the Interstate turnoff.  This part of the project is estimated to be completed by the first week of October.  This will disrupt access to parking lots and entries/exits to campus at different times during this time period.  We will work on alternate routes on getting to the west parking lots as needed throughout the project.

Additionally, Westar (Evergy) will be starting on the relocation of the overhead power lines to underground service in September and will continue to March 2019.  There should be little disruption to normal vehicular and pedestrian traffic.  Most work will be boring underground.  There will be three above ground boxes that will need roping off during this work.  Work will be from the intersection of Commercial Street and 12th Avenue west to the intersection of Merchant Street and 12th Avenue north to the Interstate turnoff.

More information will be posted as the project progresses.

Or take a break, sit down, and color a page.  We will have crayons, colored pencils, markers, and lots of coloring pages.  According to research, the mindful act of coloring keeps you focused in the moment helping to relieve the fears, anxieties, and worry that leads to stress.  Taking a break helps our mind and body to recharge.  So tomorrow, Keep Calm and Color On!

​It's not too late to register for the Emporia State Marching Hornets (MU245) this fall.  ALL members will receive a $500 scholarship, and no audition is required for brass, woodwind or front ensemble members! We do still have openings available for you to march as a member of our woodwind, brass, drumline, front ensemble and Colorguard sections!  All members of the ESMH that live in the dorms get to move in early too!

​The National Weather Service has issues a heat advisory for all of northeast, east-central and north-central Kansas — including Lyon County and the city of Emporia.

The advisory is in effect from 1 p.m. Wednesday until 10 p.m. Friday. Air temperatures in the middle 90s to around 105 degrees will combine with humid conditions to create heat indices of 100 to 108 degrees each afternoon. With overnight low temperatures expected to be in the middle and upper 70s, little relief from the heat is expected at night.

Heat illnesses are possible for thos spending prolonged time outdoors and those more susceptible to heat illnesses, such as children or the elderly. 

Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors.

Take extra precautions, if you work or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. 

Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.

To reduce risk during outdoor work, the occupational safety and health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency, call 9-1-1.
