What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Wichita State University. As a freshman I moved from Oklahoma without knowing a soul and now I couldn’t be more thankful for the community and friendships I have. Not only does the school offer extracurricular activities but have over 200 clubs, as well as intramural sports, Greek life, and is overall a very clean environment. I would recommend this college to anyone. It is a very diverse campus and is welcoming to all.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy the school quite a lot. It is a big school but not too big that it is overwhelming. Very diverse college but is not located in the nicest parts of Wichita. As far as classes go, you will get a grade based on the effort you put in. Foreign professors can sometimes cause communication issues.

It is a very welcoming environment! Most colleges are not willing to help you financially and it can be very scary diving into uncharted territory however I feel very safe and accepted at WSU. I feel that I have the right resources to achieve my goals!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

WSU is overall an amazing school. It feels like a home away from home for me. It has gorgeous views, and an active student body. The professors genuinely care about your success. Aside from sucky wifi, horrible parking, and mediocre dining hall food, its great here! The oldest dorm is 5 years old. On campus housing is hella expensive, but worth it if you want the true college feel and to be in the know of all the on campus events that are taking place. We have great facilities, and continue to expand our campus. Some majors are definitely appreciated and prioritized more than others (cough, cough--HELP OUT YOUR FELLOW FINE ARTS STUDENTS THE TWO MUSIC BUILDINGS SUCK). Seriously though, I wouldn't have it any other way. I am grateful for everything that Wichita has provided for me, and I can't imagine being at any other school. Go Shox!!!

My overall opinion of Wichita State University is I believe it is the college just right for me. It may not be for everyone but I fit right along. The campus visit I took I felt extremely welcomed. Overall the atmosphere on campus and energy is positive. The diversity in this school is amazing and the campus in general is beautiful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wichita State is a great university. The beginning of my freshman year was a bit rough. I was off on my own for the first time, and didn't quite know where I fit in. I made the choice to live in the Living Learning Community for Health Professions. I was instantly connected with a group of people that had similar passions as me, and have made some of my best friends here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Academics are hard to follow because professors don’t communicate. I don’t mind self-teaching, but they need to tell us what to look for instead of thrusting us into the unknown and expecting us to figure it out, then later looking at us with that condescending smirk and telling us we can retake the exam because our scores were generally low. News flash: If the whole class sucks, it reflects on you, the professors - not us, the receivers of information. I’ve had nothing but obstacles since enrolling here. The price doesn’t match the service. I could care less about the absence of student life, but please... train your fucking professors. One guy assigns essays without telling us when they’re due or putting them on the syllabus and then smirks and says “Yes, we do have an essay due! You should know this.” He assigned the article but the whole class was taken off-guard when we were told there was an essay. This happened twice. One professor spends the whole hour covering information that, he admitted before covering it, would not be on any exams. Then he shows us pictures and even goes off the rails with some random information that won’t be used later and we’re all left confused (as shown in all of our test scores). I was berated in beginning guitar for not knowing the basics. I later went sobbing to the dean of the department and it was resolved, but I’d prefer if it never got to that point... I went to advisors and was again berated for not knowing the basics of making my own schedule. I was afraid to enroll again because of this, but eventually mustered up the courage and only did so with specific advisors. The first time I went into an advisor’s office, they just scheduled for me without even asking what I wanted. I get charged for BREATHING here and random assignments on a professor’s whim can be assigned online when we aren’t expecting it, then when we miss it, we’re told the policy is to check e-mail DAILY when professors aren’t held to the same standards. One instance, a professor forgot to e-mail us that he shortened the deadline date and when the day came, we were all blind-sighted. I have a class right after another that’s across campus and the professor before that always ends class late but I have to leave class on time in order to get to my class on time. He also shows up late every day. So by having to leave that class on time, I miss a good amount of information. We’re charged just for breathing here and yet we can’t even get good service. I hate this shitty school so much, I’m depressed. I was suicidal and the staff and the mental health faculty were indifferent. They overcharge for counseling so not only was I ready to die, I was barely able to treat myself. I hate this school. I am leaving next semester. If you value your mental health, never enroll here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The tour guides of the campus visit were very helpful. They frequently asked if I had any questions. The campus was very colorful and bright. I enjoyed the campus visit. The school overall was pretty good for a public university. I noticed how important it was for students to get involved in extracurricular activities at the school.
