Fall registration is open!

Fall classes might seem like a long way off, but that doesn’t mean you should wait to register. The sooner you get signed up for classes, the better. Registering now means you’ll get a spot in each of the classes you want and you can find your books online or in the book store ahead of time, thus getting the best deal on used books and saving money. You’ll also have the peace of mind knowing that you don’t need to do anything before school starts. Picking classes now also helps your classmates—if a class does not have a minimum number of students enrolled by a certain date that class will be cancelled. To avoid getting caught up in this situation, encourage your friends to sign up for classes too! To register for classes you will need to make an appointment with your advisor. If he or she is not on campus when you are ready to register, contact Linda, Veronica or Janet on the second floor and they can help you. If you don’t know who your advisor is, the front desk staff can help you find out. Regardless of who you meet with, take some time to review the classes offered for fall before going to your appointment.

KCC Lanyards for Sale As part of this year’s spring business class project, Kilian student Branden Jastram developed, marketed and sold Kilian lanyards. He raised $28.86 for the Kilian scholarship and learned about marketing in the process. “It was a good way to learn about selling a product,” he said. Director of Development Wendy McDonnel agrees, but says it is more than that. “Students giving back to Kilian really shows their pride in the college and their education. Scholarships are imperative to our students and these dollars are another example of our mission of ‘Student Success,’” she said. In addition to marketing his lanyards on his own, Branden approached Rose Leibhan about putting his left over inventory in the bookstore. The remaining lanyards are available until they are all gone. At that time, the bookstore will determine whether or not to make them a regular product. Each lanyard costs $2.70. Here, Branden is pictured with Wendy McDonnel.

Artists Against Hunger On June 7th & 8th Kilian Community College will have an art collection on display during the Artists Against Hunger event. The event will be held Friday, June 7th from 5-10pm and Saturday, June 8th from 10am-10pm at the 8th & Railroad building. The Artists Against Hunger art show is a bi -annual fundraiser for Feeding South Dakota. Over the past four years, the art show has donated over 30,000 pounds of food to the Sioux Falls Food Bank. “Using art, compassion, and community” as the “backdrop” for the issue of hunger, the people involved work to “make a change within South Dakota one painting at a time,” says the group on their Facebook page. There are eight Kilian students, alumni and faculty participating, but you can attend the event and learn more about combating hunger in our community. Pictured above is a pencil drawing created by Kenny Wicks. This and other pieces of visual art will be featured during the AAH weekend showing.

Study Abroad Scholarships For Anyone College is the perfect time to get away from home and explore the world, which is why so many colleges and universities encourage students to study abroad. The cost is generally not much more than spending a semester on campus, although students need to cover a few additional expenses, like plane tickets, travel within the host country, study abroad insurance, and any special clothing or gear they need for the trip. That’s why study abroad scholarships are so helpful for defraying the additional cost. General Financial Aid: Any financial aid you’re already getting for studying on campus can typically be applied to your study abroad program as well. This includes awards like Pell Grants from the federal government, National Merit Scholarships, and similar types of financial aid. Talk to your school’s financial aid office about your typical aid package and how much of it can be applied to your bill if you study abroad. Boren Awards for International Study: If you’re interested in going abroad to study a language that isn’t very commonly taught in the United States, like Arabic, Russian, Korean or Swahili, you may be eligible for a Boren Scholarship of up to $20,000 or a Boren Fellowship of up to $30,000. However, you need to be in a language immersion program abroad for at least six months and commit to seek work in the federal government after your graduation. Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program: Gilman Awards are need-based scholarships given to some students who are already receiving Pell Grants from the federal government. The awards of up to $5,000 can be applied to any study abroad costs, including travel, room and board, and similar expenses. If you’re awarded a Gilman Scholarship, you also may be eligible for a Critical Need Language Award of up to $8,000 if your program involves study of an approved language. IES Diversity Scholarships: Many major study abroad networks have their own scholarships for students enrolled in these programs. For example, if you’re going on an IES study abroad program, you may be eligible for one of the IES diversity scholarships, which are given based on both merit and need. Look into scholarships from other major study abroad networks, too, like API or CIEE. Specialty Scholarships: Don’t forget to consider the dozens of specialty scholarship programs for very specific types of students or study abroad programs. Search databases at sites like StudyAbroad.com to find scholarships you may be eligible to apply for. Some are highly competitive, whereas others just get a handful of applicants because they’re so specialized. If you’ve ever wanted to see the world and possibly have some financial help with it, studying abroad is a great opportunity!


The Sioux Falls Public Library system has generously donated five boxes of books to Kilian. We receive books from them throughout the year, and these free books are great options for children’s story time or passing a lazy afternoon at the park. Students may take home as many books as they will use. The books are sorted by table, and are available in the student lounge area until they are all gone. The materials range from grade school to adult reading levels and interests for all. Please take some time to browse the books. Remember that good writers are active readers. Spend some time with a book during this summer, and come to school ready for more in the fall!

Do You Want More Money? Who doesn’t want more money?! Many students rely on financial aid to help pay for classes, books and living expenses. If you do, then make sure the financial aid office has the most updated financial information available to you. If you are taking summer classes, you’ve probably filled out a 20122013 FAFSA. Good! If you haven’t filled out the ’12-’13 FAFSA, and you plan on enrolling full time next year, you should fill out the previous year’s FAFSA as it might mean extra money for you. If you need help with this, or don’t remember which year you’ve filled out, you can check by logging in at FAFSA.ED.GOV, or you can stop by the financial aid office and Christine or Carolyn will help you.

Business Competition winners Submitted by Stacy Walters Kilian’s savvy business students recently competed against each other in a business class competition held on campus. The students were organized into small groups of between 2 to 4 people and they had to create a small business. They could only invest $5 each into the business along with any materials that they had on hand. After 5 weeks of preparing the business they spent 6 weeks selling. All four groups chose to donate their profits to charity, and the results are listed below: United Way $20 Children's Home Society $45 Kilian CC Scholarship Fund $28.86 The Banquet $66 The students also participated in another small business competition, in which they had to examine a business, isolate a problem within that business, propose and then develop a solution to that problem. For his work on a tardy/absent policy at his job, Cameron Morfeld placed first. Suggesting solutions to equipment failure at his job earned Kenny Wicks a 2nd place finish. Above, Cameron explains his project to a classmate.

Vending Machine Issues If you have a problem with the vending machines, please stop at the front desk to leave your contact information, nature of the problem and amount of money owed (if any) on an envelope. When our restock vendor comes in, we will collect the money for you and let them know about the problem. You can then stop at the front desk again to pick up your reimbursement. We apologize for any inconveniences and appreciate your comments!
