5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Huge school was not expecting this when I stepped on campus I'm loving it so far.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: K-State is where I feel the most at home. I've met amazing people and learned more than I ever have before. I actually am excited for school to start.

Overall Experience: K-State is very respected and almost every graduate can find a job in their field. You have to be realistic about the economy and what your major is though, liberal arts degrees may have a hard time while engineers are highly sought after. You can talk with your advisor and other administration to get a realistic view of job/internship prospects in your field.

Health & Safety: There are campus police, especially at night and you can always get safewalk, where an officer will walk you anywhere on campus and up to two blocks off campus when it is nighttime. We also have the blue emergency light buttons that will call the police if you press it and need assistance. Partying is the only time you really have to be careful, but if you party smart you won't have any problems. Stay in groups and make sure one of you is mostly sober at all times to watch out for the rest of you, and understand each others limits beforehand so you can stop your friends from making bad decisions during a party or heat of the moment. Don't drink the jungle juice.

Campus Housing: Campus housing is great to get to know other people and campus! I definitely recommend for the first year! It is very cramped though and the food gets very repetitive, so look for other options after your first year.

Greek Life: I'm not a Greek person, but I have a lot of friends who are, considered, or dropped out. The people who stay absolutely love Greek life, so if it's your style, K-State has some great houses! I know some who considered but they just didn't click with the people or it was too much of a time commitment. Keep that in mind if you do sports or have a large class load! My friend dropped even though she was accepted because of time commitment. Another friend was kicked out because the guys in the house didn't think he had bonded well with them, so give it a go, but don't worry if it's not your thing or you don't match, it's not everything here.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sometimes it seems like too much of a focus, but most of the student population loves them, and I attend most football games. Its an amazing sensation being part of the huge student section and I love it! Some of my friends aren't huge sports people and they feel a bit left out because they don't follow or enjoy the games, so if you're not that into sports, just find some other friends to watch netflix with and avoid the crowd. But if you are into sports, party on! It's a blast!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 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.

4 College Junior

Athletics: There are various teams each with talented players!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The faculty and staff are accommodating for non-traditional students unlike some other institutions.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I really don't know. I suppose it's similar to other campuses in the midwest.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most of my professors have been great. There are always a couple who are difficult to understand or who don't seem to care about individual students, but the class sizes are always so large for the introductory/freshman year classes that it is hard to feel like a student could get any individual attention. I think this is normal for most large schools. However, all the teachers have open office hours if needed.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I haven't really applied yet for internships or tried to use the alumni network, but I have heard that degrees from this school are well-respected.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have had positive interactions with campus security when my car was hit in the parking lot. Some cars were broken into off campus, but noone reported being hurt or assaulted. I have used the campus health center and got great attention there.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I only lived on campus freshman year. It was a good experience. The rooms were fine. There wasn't a lot of social interaction unless people were really outgoing. The dorms are convenient to classes, but the cost always seems high.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: The pledge week activities were easy to negotiate, although it is always a little stressful. Certain sororities and fraternities are definitely only looking for certain types of people, but that's what it's all about. The Greeks do a lot of community service and have fun activities to attend. Most of the houses recommend that the member live in-house at least one year. It seems that Greeks and non-Greeks get along just fine.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Game days for football and basketball are always huge. The other varsity sports are not as well recognized, but there is great school spirit and pride.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have met a lot of great people. My professors have been helpful when I approach them during office hours to get help. There are plenty of things to do both on and off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There were a lot of good things about the housing on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I myself am not involved in Greek life but have visited many of their establishments. They are always welcoming and friendly and have a very accepting attitude. They help the community a lot with their philanthropy work.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at KSU are great. They are an important part of campus life and help to create a diverse culture. The programs seem down to earth and are incredible to witness. When attending games, it feels like a giant family reunion and everyone is happy to be in that environment and share in the victories and even share in the losses that take place.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think that Kansas State University has a very friendly environment and the school is very committed to providing their students with any help that they may be seeking.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I had an issue with one class, but I made it work.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Huge alumni assoc./ high level med school entry

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Every college campus has risks, but I feel safe.

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.
