5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The best college experience by far. From an out of state perspective, as well as a first time college student from my family, Kansas State University is the best school for anybody.

Overall Experience: There are a lot of ways to be involved at my school. My advisor always sends me emails about how I can involve myself in different events. I would choose it again because it is exactly what I had hoped for. I like all of my classes and I feel like I am learning so much so far.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It has a really great atmosphere. The only real problem is all the construction.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My college choice was and is the best option for me. My favorite experiences include living in a residence hall on-campus, because I met my future roommates there and made a lot of fun memories. My school is unique, because it is beautiful year-round and everyone is so friendly. Our school spirit is incredible, and everyone feels like they have a home at K-State.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Manhattan is a really small town, which has a few number of students who are actually from the area - Manhattan. During summer months, I would advice you to take classes and apply for jobs which are readily available on the CES website; particularly international students who are planning on staying over the summer. You would have the opportunity of meeting and interacting with people who are on-campus, most especially when the town is half deserted and not much activities to do there.

Overall, I had a great experience here at K-State. The athletic events are always fun, you meet a lot of nice people, most teachers are ready to help if you need it.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had the best experience in Kansas State University. I am currently a senior in KSU and I have learned so much these past two years. KSU is a very unique school because there are so many people who loves to help and we can build a great relationship with instructors and with the Kansas State University staff. I do not regret choosing this university I am sure I made the right choice.

Overall Experience: When I first came to K-State, I was skeptical of my decision and even considered transferring and moving. Today, four years later, I couldn't picture myself anywhere else! It has been the biggest blessing, and the BEST four years of my life!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really like K-State, ever since first stepping on to campus I feel like I am apart of something larger than myself. It truly does feel like a family. I do wish that some of my classes were harder, and that the school was a bit smaller, but it's really easy to get involved in smaller communities that help you feel connected and the honors classes offered by K-State are great!

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.
