Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

You can laud it as Middle America magic, or you can write it off as institutional brainwashing, but there’s no denying that Kansas State has a way of winning the hearts of its students. Not everyone is thrilled to matriculate, but by the time graduation rolls around, all but a handful of curmudgeons are smitten with the school. Exactly why this occurs is not immediately apparent. Odds are it’s not the parking. Or the clement weather. And tasty as Call Hall ice cream is, the “Yum!” factor goes only so far.

But maybe it has something to do with the people behind the ice cream counter—and behind the Hale reference desk and behind the classroom podiums. The welcome, the warmth, and the willingness to help a freshman track down an article on Parkinsonian ataxia from a 1928 issue of an out-of-print medical journal the night before his psych paper is due are all part of what makes K-State great. Or maybe it’s the town—after the initial resignation to Manhattan’s limited offerings, students learn to swear by its bars and coffee shops. Or maybe it’s that transcendent cream pie at the end of the dinner line. Whatever the reason, students here are happy to be students here. Take a bow, Dean Bosco.
