Student Organizations

Below are just a select few of the many clubs and organizations at Kansas State University, to see the complete list visit K-State's OrgSync. There is something for Everyone!

  • Illustration Club

Illustration club is dedicated to people who are interested in illustration and/or a career in illustration. The focus of the group would not only be to grow as an artist but learn about careers in illustration. We will create and discuss artwork that explores and conveys stories and concepts. Some activities include weekly prompts that will challenge members to grow in their skill, creativity, and imaginations. The club will also be a place where members can get feedback on their artwork. We will also offer opportunities for members to have their work exposed or recognized in the community. Illustration club will be a place for people to relax and work on personal illustrations and make friends! Art and non-art majors welcome, no prior skills or experience required. Hope you come draw with us! Visit us on Twitter! Please contact for information: illustksu@gmail.com.

  • Photography Club (KSU Foto Club)

The KSU foto Club acts as a forum for students to engage in photography outside the classroom. It aims furthermore to increase awareness of photography beyond populist or commercial applications for students on campus. Activities include but are not limited to group discussions, travel to Museums or conferences, hosting events, and fundraising. The primary membership consists of existing photo students. Outside students are welcome, but the club does not "teach" photography. The Art Department has a number of courses that are fun and a great way to learn the basics. To learn more, email our faculty coordinator, Rebecca Hackeman-Bahlmann, at rebecca212@ksu.edu.

  • Prairie Fire Printmakers

Prairie Fire Printmakers, originally established in 2008 as Pussycat Press, is a student run club of printmakers located in the Fine Arts Department of Willard Hall at Kansas State University. The club aims to create an awareness of printmaking on the campus, promote learning and skill building in the printed arts as well as fundraisers to fund group trips to the annual Southern Graphics Conference held in the spring.
