Our two-phase project to expand and revitalize Seaton Complex will:

Increase support from our students

Enhance the value of a K-State Degree

  • Fostering increased interdisciplinary activity will result in greater value for students with a degree from Kansas State University.

Stimulate job creation in Kansas and the region

  • 47 percent of college graduates remain in Kansas and the Kansas City Area. They are the job creators of tomorrow.

Strengthen the economy

  • We are producing architects, planners, landscape architects and designers, who fuel community development and drive economic growth.

Help APDesign maintain its national reputation
