Great college for engineering! The campus is clean and ever expanding, there are plenty of living choices such as dorms, frats, apartments. The professors are generally very friendly, and the major specific courses are challanging and deep. Plus tuition is recently priced at the time of writing this review. The only major gripe is with the freshman starter classes. They are not kind on people new to the college experience. Though, to be completely honest, this isn't too bad, as many universities nowadays put too much focus on keeping students paying, rather than suceeding.

The degree in Education from K-State is one of the best in the state of Kansas as far as prestige, yet as I have discovered in talking to many of my professors there is a sense that there's a lack of diversity in the teaching styles of teachers. The system encourages conformity to the norms in the field, but of course once the degree has been achieved as well as your teaching certificate the freedom is yours. The advice I've been given is to learn up on as many diverse ways of teaching a subject by taking a variety of classes and reading heavily and just getting through the program, then incorporate all those styles into my own, instead of relying totally on the program's design. But our teachers are greatly desired all over the country and beyond, and our college is an extremely tight knit community which I love! Being so close and thus well connected is what I believe gives us such an upper hand in the job market.

I absolutely love Kansas State! I fell in love with the beautiful campus first and now I love just about everything about it! Yes, the classes can be difficult and stressful, but there are so many resources for you to go to and get help, and every teacher I've had has been great about pointing you in the right direction to get some help. The other students are so friendly and even though everyone has their own group, like the artsy students, sport fans, country people, everyone is still a part of the K-State family.
