2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The freshman dorm at KWU are very average. The first week was fun because everyone was in the lobby but after that the dorms were quiet and boring. The RA's took their jobs way to serious.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Almost every athlete on the softball team was transferring. They had 62 girls to start off the season and none of them had only clue that there would be 2 teams such as a Varsity and JV team. Every sports team had double the number of kids needed. Everyone said the coaches would recruit alot of freshman because they were blind and didnt know what kind of school they were going into and all the upper classman knew better and got out of there as quickly as they could.

Overall Experience: After attending one full year at KWU I quickly learned it was quite possibly the worst school from the athletics to the academics. The academics are EXTREMELY easy and the sports teams are terrible. The overall moral of the school is everyone is agreement of how they cannot wait to transfer or how much they want to go home. I do not recommend this school to anyone.

Health & Safety: You have to unlock so many doors in the dorms. However, students tend to prop the doors open and anyone in the main stair case can access your hall. However I feel rather safe at night but I stay aware of others around me just in case.

Overall Experience: It's a wonderful time to be a music major at this school. The professors here are so talented and they get you involved in professional programs early on.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors reply to my emails so quickly. I love the professors that are involved in my major, you can literally go to them if you have any problem even if i was their former student.

Campus Housing: I love that it's close by the main campus. It is annoying that we have to send complaints if it gets too loud rather than it being taken care of..and then nothing changes. But I get to live there for free so it's not bad.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Honestly I have heard nothing of it at our school.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not exactly in it, but I do know enough that it over shadows a lot of other groups.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really like the school however it's so hard to find information or get help because their website is so confusing and they have so many offices. It's both a good and bad thing. Another problem I've had is that there were topics that weren't explained to their fullest and I had to go on a wild goose chase.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe here.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors really care about you passing their class and they'll be with you every step of the way if you need it.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There's not very many opportunities to see job internships around here.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am a member of the spirit squad and the athletic department here is wonderful.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school is very family oriented, so once you come here you have a second family to depend on.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: at night seems scary--need more street lights----crossing the streets by the dorm needs to be repainted

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love being at the campus and the courses are fun to take, but challenging too.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am only a freshman haven't had a chance to experience this.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: dorm rooms could be bigger

4 College Freshman

Athletics: being able to visit the gym and watching the games are a huge part of my personal involvement in the school

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoy this campus because I can play my instruments as well as learning my major

Athletics: KWU athletics are pretty good. However, there is not a high level of student involvement. Not a lot of students go to games that are not football or basketball, and the bleachers aren't packed with students at each game. School spirit isn't that prominent, even during game weeks. However, there are some students that regularly go to games, and the faculty and staff support athletics.

KWU has a gym that is regularly used by athletes and is currently rebuilding its stadium. This will help improve the football team and make going to games more convenient for everyone. For the past year, KWU has been using the high school football stadium, but the new stadium is expected to be ready for the 2015-2016 school year.

Off-Campus Dining: Salina has a variety of off-campus restaurants to choose from. There is a convenience store down the street from the dorms, which provides students with cheap, late-night snacks and drinks. Many students will walk down there late at night or during the day to satisfy their hunger.

There is a plethora of cheap fast-food places within short driving distance from KWU. This includes Taco Bell, McDonald's, Starbucks, and a home-owned restaurant called Bogey's. Numerous students choose Taco Bell or Bogey's if they have money for extra meals. Bogey's provides American staples such as hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, corn dogs, and delicious shakes as well as excellent customer service. It is definitely a favorite among the student population.

Next to cheap fast food, Salina also has more expensive restaurants such as Daimaru, Applebees, and Longhorn Steakhouse. However, there are numerous and popular home-owned places such as Martinelli's. Martinelli's is a home-owned Italian restaurant in Salina's downtown district. It provides excellent Italian cuisine and has old-time jazz music playing during it's open hours. It's not terribly expensive, so students wanting a more quality meal usually go to Martinelli's. It is also across from Salina's historic Stiefel Theatre, so it gets a lot of business from the Stiefel's customers. Places like Martinelli's and Applebees often get KWU students as part-time employees, so restaurants and KWU often have connections to each other.

Administration: Kansas Wesleyan is a dry school and a tobacco and drug-free campus. KWU is extremely strict on drug and alcohol use, and all faculty and staff uphold this rule. While away on school functions, professors enforce this rule. Students, even over the age of 21, cannot have alcohol while off-campus on school trips.

In the dorms, this policy is upheld as well. If someone is suspected of having alcohol or illicit drugs in their room, the entire hall is inspected either during the day or late at night. Sometimes dogs are brought in to search the room. If this happen, refrigerators and closets can be searched. Otherwise, room inspections are rather lenient.

Dorm visitations are rather lenient. Most resident assistants (RA's) are lenient on this policy. The rule with visitation in most halls is that it's okay until you get caught or make too much noise. People can have their friends stay overnight as long as they don't make too much noise. This is the experience I've had with my RA's.

Overall, Kansas Wesleyan is a great campus and is strict with some policies and rather lenient with others. This makes for a safe campus with a great student life.

Scholarships: I don't have much experience with the financial aid office at KWU, but I have received scholarships for my room because of my high grades and it covers my room, but not my board. I have, however, asked questions from the financial aid office and received prompt and courteous service. The financial aid office is extremely helpful to students and most everything goes over smoothly.
