Take the MAP-Works Survey

Each year, all incoming freshmen are asked to take a non-confidential survey regarding their transition to college life at K-State. The survey is part of a program known as MAP-Works (Making Achievement Possible), which was developed to ensure students receive the resources they need to overcome potential first-year struggles and continue their education into the sophomore year and beyond.

A link to the MAP-Works survey will be emailed to you on Sept. 15 and will include questions pertaining to academic, social, emotional and financial well-being.   

You'll have until Oct. 6 to complete it. Survey data will be made available to K-State faculty and staff who are specifically connected to you. Those faculty and staff can then follow up with assistance if you're struggling.
