Plan now to attend "Wild about FCS Education" on October 6th to enhance what you know about FCS Education at Kansas State University. The day will include professional development for the FCS teacher and knowledge they can immediately use in their classrooms. In addition, continuing education credit will be offered if desired. We are also offering a schedule for students, who are interested in Family and Consumers Sciences to learn more about the university, FCS Education as a career choice in the College of Human Ecology and College of Education. The registration cost includes the opportunity to bring up to 2 students at no charge. Additional students, over the 2 included in your registration are welcome, but there will be an additional charge as indicated on the registration form.
A permit is required to park on the Kansas State University campus. Visitor permits for the K-State Parking Garage can be purchased from K-State Parking Services for $5 per day. Campus parking is limited and we recommend you purchase a visitor permit in advance to ensure availability at the conference.
Instructions to purchase a conference parking permit: Visit the K-State Parking Services website to purchase a parking permit for the day. Once you are at the KSU Parking Services webpage, at the upper right hand side of the page, you will click on LOGIN if you already have an account, or SIGNUP to create an account. The permit you buy at this website will need to be printed out and displayed on your dashboard to park on campus, or printed out and scanned to enter and exit the parking garage.
