UPCOMING IMPORTANT IAPD DATES
The first day of classes begins on August 22nd and IAPD has a busy day planned.  Please note that the IAPD faculty will be having the annual welcome back meeting with all IAPD students 2:30-3:30 pm on August 22nd in the Union Big 12 Room.  Following our welcome back get together we will all attend the All College Forum in the Union's Forum Hall.  Also, please note that following the all college forum we will have the annual APDesign photo taken outside of Seaton Hall.  As a reward for surviving your first day of classes and all these meetings there will be food!  The All College Picnic will follow the photo and it will be held outside of Holtz Hall.  WELCOME BACK!
BE AN APDESIGN AMBASSADOR
 Are you interested in serving the College of Architecture, Planning & Design (APDesign) as an ambassador? Now is your chance to sign up. Please email me at myapd@ksu.edu. There is no selection process. If you sign-up, you are an APDesign Ambassador. (If you are already an ambassador there is no need to email me, you will remain an ambassador until you graduate or you tell me to take you off the list!)
 
As an APDesign Ambassador, you will receive emails from me asking for your help. I typically request tour guides or volunteers to help with recruitment or college events. Most tours require only a 30 minute commitment. Most events require an hour or two of your time. However, some events are half or full day events. You get to choose what you volunteer to participate in.
 
 The only requirement of being an ambassador is that you attend the one and only ambassador meeting, August 21st. The meeting begins at 12:30pm in Seaton 63. You will learn more about giving building tours, etc. at this meeting.
STUDENT ACCESS TESTING CENTER
Student Access Center Update
The SACTesting Center is now available in KSIS.
 
 A new help page provides faculty and instructors with step-by-step instructions on how to schedule a test for the SAC to proctor for students who need accommodations.
 
Contact Elizabeth Walker, SAC Testing Coordinator, for more information (emwalker@ksu.edu, 532-6441).
