One interest, endless connections

Connecting Across Topics (CAT) Communities are set of learning communities specifically designed for first-year students. They are a terrific way for students to make a great start at K-State.



CAT Communities are designed around student interests, and they offer mentoring from a professor and an advanced undergraduate Learning Assistant who shares the students' interests. They are an ideal place for students to meet each other and to study together.
