History Kansas State University_section_0

Kansas State University, originally named Kansas State Agricultural College, was founded in Manhattan on February 16, 1863, during the American Civil War, as a land-grant institution under the Morrill Act. Kansas State University_sentence_11

The school was the first land-grant college created under the Morrill Act. Kansas State University_sentence_12

K-State is the third-oldest school in the Big 12 Conference and the oldest public institution of higher learning in the state of Kansas. Kansas State University_sentence_13

The effort to establish the school began in 1861, the year that Kansas was admitted to the United States. Kansas State University_sentence_14

One of the new state legislature's top priorities involved establishing a state university. Kansas State University_sentence_15

That year, the delegation from Manhattan introduced a bill to convert the private Blue Mont Central College in Manhattan, incorporated in 1858, into the state university. Kansas State University_sentence_16

But the bill establishing the university in Manhattan was controversially vetoed by Governor Charles L. Robinson of Lawrence, and an attempt to override the veto in the Legislature failed by two votes. Kansas State University_sentence_17

In 1862, another bill to make Manhattan the site of the state university failed by one vote. Kansas State University_sentence_18

Finally, upon the third attempt on February 16, 1863, the state accepted Manhattan's offer to donate the Blue Mont College building and grounds and established the state's land-grant college at the site – the institution that would become Kansas State University. Kansas State University_sentence_19

When the college opened for its first session on September 2, 1863, it became only the second public institution of higher learning to admit women and men equally in the United States. Kansas State University_sentence_20

Enrollment for the first session totaled 52 students: 26 men and 26 women. Kansas State University_sentence_21

Twelve years after opening, the university moved its main campus from the location of Blue Mont Central College to its present site in 1875. Kansas State University_sentence_22

The original site is now occupied by Central National Bank of Manhattan and Founders Hill Apartments. Kansas State University_sentence_23

The early years of the institution witnessed debate over whether the college should provide a focused agricultural education or a full liberal arts education. Kansas State University_sentence_24

During this era, the tenor of the school shifted with the tenure of college presidents. Kansas State University_sentence_25

For example, President John A. Anderson (1873–1879) favored a limited education and President George T. Fairchild (1879–1897) favored a classic liberal education. Kansas State University_sentence_26

Fairchild was credited with saying, "Our college exists not so much to make men farmers as to make farmers men." Kansas State University_sentence_27

During this era, in 1873, Kansas State helped pioneer the academic teaching of home economics for women, becoming one of the first two colleges to offer the program of study. Kansas State University_sentence_28

In November 1928, the school was accredited by the Association of American Universities (AAU) as a school whose graduates were deemed capable of advanced graduate work. Kansas State University_sentence_29

The name of the school was changed in 1931 to Kansas State College of Agriculture and Applied Science. Kansas State University_sentence_30

In 1959, the Kansas legislature changed the name again to Kansas State University of Agriculture and Applied Science to reflect a growing number of graduate programs. Kansas State University_sentence_31

However, in modern practice, the "Agriculture and Applied Science" portion has usually been omitted even from official documents such as state statutes. Kansas State University_sentence_32

Milton S. Eisenhower served as president of the university from 1943 to 1950, and Dr. James McCain succeeded him, serving from 1950 to 1975. Kansas State University_sentence_33

Several buildings, including residence halls and a student union, were added to the campus in the 1950s. Kansas State University_sentence_34

The 1960s witnessed demonstrations against the Vietnam War, though fewer than at other college campuses. Kansas State University_sentence_35

Enrollment was relatively high through most of the 1970s, but the university endured a downward spiral from approximately 1976 to 1986, when enrollment decreased to 17,570 and a number of faculty resigned. Kansas State University_sentence_36

In 1986, Jon Wefald assumed the presidency of Kansas State University. Kansas State University_sentence_37

During his tenure, enrollment and donations increased. Kansas State University_sentence_38

On June 15, 2009, Kirk Schulz became the 13th president of Kansas State University. Kansas State University_sentence_39

In March 2010 he announced his K-State 2025 plan. Kansas State University_sentence_40

The initiative is designed to elevate K-State to a top 50 nationally recognized research university by 2025. Kansas State University_sentence_41

His last day was April 22, 2016, as he was selected as Washington State University's next president. Kansas State University_sentence_42

In late April 2016, Ret. Kansas State University_sentence_43

General Richard Myers began serving as the interim president of Kansas State University and was announced as the permanent president on November 15, 2016. Kansas State University_sentence_44

The state legislature established the state's land-grant college in Manhattan on January 13, 1863. Kansas State University_sentence_46

A commission to establish a state university in Lawrence was called for later in the same legislative session, provided that town could meet certain requirements, and finalized later that year. Kansas State University_sentence_47

Kansas State was the first public institution of higher learning founded in the state and began teaching college-level classes in 1863. Kansas State University_sentence_48

By comparison, the University of Kansas opened in 1866, and offered only preparatory-level classes until college-level classes began in 1869. Kansas State University_sentence_49

Kansas State was founded with an agricultural and scientific college consistent with the land-grant college mandate, as well as departments for military science and literature. Kansas State University_sentence_50

It was formally renamed as Kansas State University in 1959. Kansas State University_sentence_51

Campus Kansas State University_section_2

The main campus of Kansas State University in Manhattan now covers 668 acres (2.70 km). Kansas State University_sentence_53

The campus is historic, featuring more buildings built before 1910 than any other campus in Kansas. Kansas State University_sentence_54

Holtz Hall, built in 1876, is the oldest free-standing building on campus. Kansas State University_sentence_55

However, the oldest building on campus is the original section of Seaton Hall, which now forms Seaton Court, facing the courtyard of Hale Library and Eisenhower Hall. Kansas State University_sentence_56

Originally named the Industrial Workshop, this section of Seaton Hall is the oldest remaining education building on the Manhattan campus. Kansas State University_sentence_57

The predominant architectural feature of the Manhattan campus is its use of native limestone. Kansas State University_sentence_58

This includes the signature building at Kansas State University, Anderson Hall, developed in three stages between 1877 and 1885. Kansas State University_sentence_59

Anderson Hall, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has housed the university's administrative offices for more than a century. Kansas State University_sentence_60

Although there are many historic building on the campus, since 1986 Kansas State has also added over two million square feet (186,000 m²) of new buildings to the campus, including an expanded library, new art museum, and plant sciences building. Kansas State University_sentence_61

Several of the buildings on campus were heavily damaged by an EF4 tornado on June 11, 2008. Kansas State University_sentence_62

Damage estimates totaled more than $20 million. Kansas State University_sentence_63

K-State paid a deductible of $5 million for their insurance to repair all damages. Kansas State University_sentence_64

Since 2014, the Main campus has been under significant renovation to accommodate infrastructure changes. Kansas State University_sentence_65

The campus is also adopting a more walking friendly atmosphere by closing off many small access roads to vehicles. Kansas State University_sentence_66

In 1912 the station began a daily broadcast (in morse code) of the weather forecast, becoming the first radio station in the U.S. to air a regularly-scheduled forecast. Kansas State University_sentence_96

After a series of efforts to secure a more high-powered signal for the university – including a brief cooperation with John R. Brinkley's notorious KFKB – Kansas State was granted a license for KSAC, which began broadcasting with 500 watts of power on December 1, 1924. Kansas State University_sentence_97

The station was reassigned to the frequency of AM 580 in 1928, and continued broadcasting on that frequency until November 27, 2002, when it made its last broadcast after the frequency was bought out by WIBW in Topeka, Kansas. Kansas State University_sentence_98
