Letter from A.D. John Currie - October 31

Dear K-State Nation:

Great things are happening across campus with an all-time record enrollment and an exciting fall season for all K-State sports. However, today's letter will be completely devoted to an important update on the future of K-State Athletics and Wildcat Football!

In just five weeks we will officially break ground on what I believe will prove to be the most significant facility transformation in our history - the new Vanier Football Complex - which will be scheduled for completion in time for the 2015 season!

If you have been on campus this fall, you have seen the very visible signs of the excitement and momentum that has grown throughout the University community. President Schulz's visionary K-State 2025 plan is becoming a reality all around us with $167.1 million in planned academic construction in FY15 now underway, highlighted by the new College of Business building, Engineering expansion, Purple Masque Theatre, the Berney Family Welcome Center at Memorial Stadium, Wefald Residence Hall, KSU Foundation building and other projects transforming our beautiful campus. I am very proud of the hand-in-hand work of our Ahearn Fund staff with our KSU Foundation colleagues who, thanks to our donors, achieved record fundraising levels again this year. Still, consistent with Coach Snyder's mantra of improving a little bit every day, we know that yesterday's records are tomorrow's expectations!
