What K-State Residential CAT Community Should You Be In?
Ever wonder what life was like for average Americans from the colonial period through the end of the 19th century? Find out for yourself in this highly interactive course that combines classroom projects, field research and a hike along the Overland Trail to reveal not only the facts about periods in America's past, but the feel of life in those times as well. Keep a journal of your reactions to American novels and dramas, and discover the rich connections between American History and American Literature.
Recently, artists like Matt Garcia (co-teacher of this course) have begun exploring ways to bring art into the world to create interactive experiences, engage communities, and create social and cultural change. Leveraging the insights of anthropology (the study of people and culture), we will examine ways in which people are using art, technology, and design to "hack" culture and create positive change. Together we will brainstorm, plan, develop, and ultimately implement a "culture hack" of our own as a class. The core project of this CAT community will be to "hack" the culture of education by creating our own prototype of a college, using ourselves as the first class. Out of the classroom events will include field trips to see "culture hacks" in action, as well as to implement our own culture hacks.
In this CAT Community, you will explore themes of power, privilege and oppression in today's society through coursework and community outreach service projects.

This College of Education learning community will examine the creation of American identities and the pursuit of the ever-changing American Dream.

We'll undertake this investigation by sharing intense class discussions, viewing films, and attending on-campus events. This class will be a place for first-year students to build relationships, find community, and take intellectual risks.
How do individuals and groups behave and influence one another in society and performance? In this community, we will examine the characteristics of cultural systems and social factors that influence behavior at multiple levels of human interaction. We will use our imagination, intellect, body, and voice to explore the role of storytelling as a uniquely human experience designed to entertain and educate, while allowing us to anticipate the consequences of our actions.
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” and "What are you going to major in?" are undeniably two questions a first year college student has heard over and over.

Globalization is a flashpoint: some portray it as a means of opportunity while others contend it is a means of exploitation. We will explore the economic and social aspects of globalization through the following questions: What is globalization? How did we get to this point? Why are our societies are globalizing? What should we do about it? What can we do about it? This CAT Community is for students in the Honors Program.
Making the Ultimate Playlist: American Culture Revealed - Longfellow once famously wrote, "Music is the universal language of mankind." Drawing on this notion, our CAT Community approaches music as a cultural mirror to reveal how Americans have viewed their world and themselves through time. Students will create an "ultimate playlist" of recordings and videos to reflect the diversity, history, and values of American culture from its origins to today.
"We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better."

With a combination of creativity and academic knowledge, our community fandom will work to transform fictional lessons into real social change.
Students will examine the next generation of journalism, including new business models and innovative ideas.

Sustainability and You: People, Planet, and Profit - We each make thousands of decisions each day, some big and potentially life-changing and others small and routine. But have you ever seriously considered how those decisions may impact the lives and well-being of others or the condition of the planet? This CAT Community introduces concepts of the "triple bottom line" and "circles of sustainability" to help students think more critically about the consequences of their actions--both intended and unintended--and to better understand complex social, environmental, and economic issues.
Students will explore the underlying motivations as to why people choose to wear the clothes they wear and the influence an individual's clothing has on both him or herself as well as on other people. They will also discuss the meanings individuals link to dress, the relationship between personality and fashion, how clothing choices affect our self-perception, moods and emotions, and how clothing influences the perceptions/impressions of others.
