Fort Hays State University Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


That I had so many clubs to choose from.


I wish I had known just how the atmosphere was and what the people were like. Had I known before what I know now I would not have chosen to attend Kansas State Univeristy for two years, I would have completed all of my higher education at Ft. Hays.


I wish I had known of the community. Truly I have made so many lasting friendships here through the community I am involved in. Not only did I join a sorority that connected me with people, but through Christian Challenge I have made life long friendships as well. I wish I had known all the beautiful things that a community involves and all the wonderful friendships that can be obtained from an environment like that.


Why didn't I do this sooner? I feared returning to school at my age, that I would be looked at differently being that I stopped mid point in my career to return to school. However, I love my school and I could not be more thrilled to have returned to school after 15 years to complete my degree. Plus, I am finding I am not the only one in this tough economic climate doing so. Perhaps losing my job last Spring, which spurred me to go back to school, was the best thing to happen to me.


Before I came to this school, I wish I had known how to better manage my time so that I could have more fun. I tend to spend a lot of time working or studying, which doesn't leave me a lot of time to see friends or to just relax.


There is not a lot of things to do besides party.


Nothing. Hays is a great town and very easy to get around and make friends in. If theres anything you don't know or need help with there is plenty of resources and people to help you figure out what you need.


I cannot think of anything that I wish I knew before I came to Fort Hays State University.


How small the Greek life is.


I wish I had known how to handle my finances better.
