What is your overall opinion of this school?

Before I started my freshman year of college at Kansas State, I got the opportunity to visit the campus a view times. I fell in love with Kansas State because it had a small campus but it had a lot of activities going on. With over 500 clubs and intramurals, a K-State student could never be bored. During my freshman year, I lived on campus in the residence halls. I really enjoyed living in the halls because I met some of my closest friends, I liked being close to my classes and I loved that the dining facility was only 5 minutes away. At the dining facility, there are a lot of options such as the grill, southwest, classics and many others. They also have Call Hall ice cream made by cows located on campus. There are also various fast food place restaurants found on and around campus. There is also a food and shopping center that’s called Aggieville. In Aggieville there are many shops such as Rally House, a K-State fan wear store, Threads, a store where you can make ANY t-shirt, ACME, a cute little shop with books and stickers, and many others. K-State is an AMAZING college and I can’t wait to go back for my sophomore year.

My overall opinion for K-state is that we treat each other like family and no matter what you can find the help and resources you need. I also, love the fact K-State isn’t so quick to kick you they try their best to help keep students on track. The campus is also, really nice and you can pretty much walk too all your classes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Kansas State University is fairly good. A lot of people are really into the sports scene, mainly football and basketball, which is alright considering we have great teams. K-State offers a variety of extracurricular activities and student organization that students can be involved with. One of my favorite parts is that they offer new movies every Friday and Saturday night. On Saturdays they add subtitles to include the students who are hearing impaired, which I find to be really cool. K-State also ranks #4 in the nation for Landscape Architecture, which is really awesome, I might be a little biased toward that fact. ;)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love the atmosphere. I never have felt unwelcome even while on visits before my future decision. I would recommend KSU to anyone that I'm friends with or that are considering. I love that it's also a very involved community on top of the great college involvement. Teachers are very helpful and pretty easy to access when I need something. I have never met someone on campus that was not helpful to me in some way or not friendly. I have made so many friends and I absolutely love my department already. Athletics is not everything, as there are plenty of other things to do at KSU, but it is so thrilling to go to games. There is always something to do in Manhattan and that part is what makes it feel like home outside of home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Kansas State University provides a fantastic college experience for all students. You WILL find clubs that you enjoy being a part of, no matter what you're interests are. If you love bowling, you can bowl every day at the Student Union. If you love academics, you can join clubs or even frats and sororities that are dedicated to your area of study. There is campus housing that is dedicated to scholars who want to be surrounded by other academically-oriented students. There are campus apartments available that provide a nice middle-ground between the dorm life and living off campus. The best thing about Kansas State University, in my opinion, is that the professors really care. KSU loves to hire faculty that are dedicated to their students and invested in their success. Everyone always says that professors will treat you simply as a number, but I have never found this to be true as KSU. Almost all of my professors have literally studied their classes to learn their student's names, majors, and a few of their interests. They are more than willing to meet outside of class (even outside of office hours) in order to ensure their students have the best chance of succeeding. Our university is very focused on ignoring all of the frills and prestige. We simply care about finding our students the right job for them, and making sure that they get a return on their college investment. If you show any effort while at Kansas State, the multiple services that are aimed at helping students start successful and satisfying careers will help you land in a great spot career-wise. Our sports teams are fun to watch and competitive. Furthermore, the athletes actually make themselves available. While standing in line waiting for the biggest game of the regular season (KSU vs. KU), our star basketball player, Dean Wade, actually came outside of the stadium and handed out pizzas to the students who were waiting to get great seats. The games are always so much fun to watch, and will be a huge part of your college experience. Livability ranked Manhattan, Kansas, our college town, number one in it's top ten places to live. We have some of the most dedicated alumni and faculty in the country. Our students consistently rank as some of the happiest college students in the nation. If you want to go to a university with tons of options and experiences, where you don't face constant pressure to study, and instead are pushed to go out and participate in some of the fun things that Manhattan has to offer, and where you are almost guaranteed to get a solid job if you take advantage of some of the services available to you, then please, give Kansas State some consideration.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love K-State. In fact, I love K-State so much that I decided to stay two more years to earn my Master of Arts in English. The community is fantastic. Our library is currently under renovations because of a fire we had in May 2018, but the university has done as much as they can to provide space for students to study comfortably and be happy. 10/10 would recommend

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Kansas State. It has been my dream to attend the college since I was a little girl and I will finally be able to live that dream and explore the K-State experience next year and I couldn’t be more excited. The people that attend K-State have been very nice and generous to me so far, along with the advisors I have talked to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

You can find anything you want to do here. It is a safe and inclusive campus. Our campus organizations and clubs work very hard to find ways to include all students. While there are a lot of agriculture majors you will find that there are just as many students from other backgrounds. We have students from all across the country and around the world as well. There are many good options for housing on and off campus. You have the opportunity to be a part of Greek life and some of the organizations have houses that are live-in options as well. K-State does not count Greek life as university organizations but they're still very involved. Many philanthropy events and fundraisers happen throughout the year and often times the money is donated back into the community. Our campus is rated five stars by the LGBTQ+ community/organization which is the highest ranked university in Kansas. We have a lot of stimulating and challenging classes as well as teachers who are really dedicated to their students. It is a fantastic place to learn and grow.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Kansas State University is an amazing college! The city of Manhattan truly makes you feel at home. It has everything that a big city has but has a small town feel. You can go anywhere on any given night and run in to someone that you know. Everyone makes you feel welcome. Coming to K-State is by far the best decision I have ever made!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a resident of Manhattan, Kansas. Since I was young, I have wanted to attend Kansas State University. The college offers a beautiful campus, with many opportunities. I have noticed that over the past ten years, the college has made many renovations to their buildings. They are famous for the limestone castle look. If one was to look at the front of the new football stadium, they would be amazed. Kansas State does not only care about their athletics, they care about their academics too. A new business building was built. The architecture is phenomenal on the big building. A new facility is also being built for animal science. The new buildings are perfect for the large amounts of students attending the college. I am currently attending a community college because I wanted to continue to play softball after high school. While I have lived in Manhattan, I have been exposed to K-State events. Sports, Aggieville, and the community make the University thrive in Manhattan. Manhattan is filled with purple on Saturdays for game days. Aggieville provides a handful of bars and unique shops to the community. There are many parades and events for everyone to attend. The most popular event of the year is fake patties day! The Community is a huge sponsor to the college. Many alumni are proud of the school and give back. The college has a reputation for the academics. The college is diverse in degree programs and I am excited to start my adventure there.
