4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've liked most of my courses and professors at KSU; everyone has K-State pride and they are willing to help any student who is having trouble with a certain subject.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have yet to go into the career center, but I use their website to find jobs in Manhattan, and it is VERY helpful.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus; every couple of yards there are little stations that allow you to call the police if needed, and it is very well lit. I would rather not walk alone on campus at night, and will usually be on the phone with someone in case something happens to me, but that is because of the way I was brought up, not the campus itself. K-State police are very nice and helpful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I thought the dorms were super pricey, over +$400 a month for a small room that you share with another person; it would've just been easier to get an apartment where I could get my own bathroom and a living space and other ideas for cheaper. However KSU offered 'roomsync' which was kind of like a dating website where you put your likes and dislikes and what not in order to find a roommate best suited for you; my roommate and I got along great and we're lifelong friends now, I highly recommend roomsync for incoming freshmen.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: No one is treated differently whether or not they are in Greek life; I am in Tau Beta Sigma, which is the band sorority on campus which basically helps the band with various activities during the school year. Most non-Greeks treat Greeks equally and without much judgment, however, if someone is being stuck up or snobby non-Greeks usually respond with "they must be Greek".

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone goes to the football games and enjoys every minute of it; I think we're going on our 30th sold out game in a row! Football is definitely the most celebrated sport at KSU (especially with coach Snyder being our coach). We're pretty okay at basketball, definitely not as popular as football however.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All the students are down to earth, and everyone at KSU loves life and their school. There are many activities, and joining the marching band was by far the best thing that has ever happened to me.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Being in the College of Business, the majority of course work is lecture and computer work. Most colleges promote taking interesting electives (like Music) to take the edge off the more serious and harder courses.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Career fairs and CES is really helpful, but they could do better getting the message out about what to expect in internships.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Besides the rare theft, there really hasn't been any crime or dangerous activities.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Jardine and the dorms are nice, but good lawd, they are expensive.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am not in a frat, but I have a few friends that are. They have a lot of great stories and have made many friends through it. There are many of the classic frat guys in the groups but most are cool.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Football games are the pinnacle of K-State's sports, but there is always a crowd at the group lacrosse games.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The actual classes, for me, have all been in a friendly environment and mostly have been passionately taught. Sports and other activities have all been a blast.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think that KSU is the best college there is because it is a family environment. i think that the science and math department could improve because most of them are foreign and hard to understand. some classes are small and some are big, and i really like that variation.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I think that the campus could do a better job of enforcing security on campus. i feel like if there was an issue that the police wouldn't get to where i was in time.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: i lived in Ford hall and i thought it was great. i think the only issue i had was that the elevators weren't always working. but other than that i think the housing is great and i didn't have any issues.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: So far i haven't encountered a greek person that made me hate the system. yea the frats have their moments of being jerks and dong bad things but the greek system as a whole is great and this is coming from a non-Greek person

5 College Freshman

Athletics: think that our athletics are amazing and we achieve greatness in all fields.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think the school is great, the science and math department could use a little work but other than that it is my home away from home and I love it.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: From the beginning of the process Kansas State made me feel like I was an individual and not just another number. Overall I am extremely happy with my choice. I applied to other schools and I was not an individual. I felt like just a number thrown in with the others, but not at Kansas State.

3 College Student

Greek Life: I am not in Greek life, so I do not have much affiliation with them.

5 College Student

Athletics: Other then the volleyball arena, the sports complexes are the best I have been too. They are up to date and I love seeing a game especially at the new football complex and baseball facilities.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Overall, I have loved the experience I have had with Kansas State University.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Frat parties are gross, but they still make it fun.

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.
