5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Very community based and plenty of opportunities for students

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Over all the experience is pretty great. The community is unreal and there is literally something for everyone. Each student is pretty excepting of the other student and there is rarely any tension. There is housing and dinning options for everyone. Overall very accommodating.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are many programs and resources available to students. There are programs to help with resumes and to lead you into the next step after school. There are plenty of alumni who are very successful. There are plenty of resources to find part time jobs and internships.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are plenty of programs to help escort you to classes, especially evening classes, and there emergency blue lights placed everywhere on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Pretty average housing. You get what you put into it, obviously there are nicer buildings and the newer ones reflect that.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I can't speak much into it, but there is a wide variety of Greek life to choose from.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are a big part of our school and bring everyone together.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The majority of students are super engaging and welcoming, there is something for everyone, it's like a big family.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: On campus there are 14 sororities and almost 30 fraternities. Greek life is a large part of the social life a student can have on campus but the campus does not let Greek life be the only opportunity on campus to have a social life. There are many, many campus clubs to be involved in too. All around though if one is involved in Greek life I think non-Greeks are accepting of Greeks and visa versa. One of the advantages of being Greek though is having the "family" experience a lot sooner than non-Greeks.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at K-State is really great. There are subpar facilities provided for everyone on campus. There are activities provided for the most elite all the way to recreational fun levels of athletes. For example, I am not into sports very much at all but at the recreation conter there are activities such as ping pong, badminton, dance classes and more provided for me to still stay active and have fun!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: K-State is really fantastic because of it academics, it's students and it's learning atmospheres. I have not had one bad experience or heard of any student complain because the school does not care. The family atmosphere is tremendous considering the school is so large but seems so small. If I could do it all over I would choose the same path I have at K-State. I have met the most inspiring friends and teachers at the university and hope others who join the K-state family can too experience this feeling.

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.
