The start of fall, is almost here but as summer winds down President of Pittsburg State Steve Scott takes a look back at the first month of the 2019-2020 academic year. Like many professors, staff members and students the beginning of a new school year at Pittsburg State is no different for Dr. Scott. The start of a semester happens quickly no matter how many times you’ve gone through it. President Scott says that while the semester can seem like a blur it also signifies cooler weather, a fresh start and another season of Gorillas football.

Move In Day 2019 at PSU took place on August 17 and it was a wet one. But that didn’t stop President Scott from putting on his shorts and a t-shirt to help move students, friends and family into the dorms. It’s only not a time to help new students get settled into their new home on campus, but it’s a chance to meet and interact with new students and their parents. President Scott recognizes this is the day that many freshmen and their parents have saved, planned and waited for years for. He recognizes it importance.

Last week the ribbon was officially cut to open Block22 in downtown Pittsburg. The mixed use project that combines apartments, office space and restaurants is a collaboration between the city of Pittsburg and PSU. The over $20 million dollar project in southeast Kansas’s largest city is meant to spur growth in downtown Pittsburg at a time when many downtown areas are dwindling. According to President Scott Block22 is set to be a “trans-formative” project that will benefit Pittsburg for years to come.
