Overall it is a very sound school. The class sizes are relatively small so you can get the help that you need. The faculty go out of their way to make sure you are getting a smooth transition either between high school and college or from class to class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wichita state is an amazing four year. There is usually a lot going on around campus. We hit national headlines for bringing camels to campus for Hump day. As long as you are committed to having a great college experience this college is for you. You definitely get your moneys worth and the school is riddled with amazing facilities for every major. The campus is pretty big as well, a bike or skateboard is usually recommended but you can get around walking fine. Sorority and Fraternity life is existent but not necessary to get involved on campus. Hope you enjoy Wichita State University, I hope to see you here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The rigor of the academic curriculum is excellent, and the professors are generally knowledgeable and helpful. I've only had trouble raising responses from one or two of my professors for online classes so far. In general, I feel like faculty and staff are invested in students' success and willing to help students excel. It isn't always easy to get information or explanations from faculty and staff, though, especially in advising, admissions, and financial aid. You may have to make multiple phone calls or send multiple emails to get answers to your questions, and expect to be given some runaround.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A commuter college with a relatively diverse student population. Located in a not great part of town, there have been numerous crimes including robberies, stalkings, assaults and even a murder within a mile of campus. That being said, I have never personally had any issues, but you probably shouldn't walk alone off campus at night. Had an array of learning opportunities with eclectic, wise, brilliant and babbling professors, some of which I will never forget. Theatre department is really a home away from home. Once they let you in here, it is literally a second family which somehow makes college stress easier to deal with. The parking situation on campus is a major turn off for a handful of reasons. There is usually a parking space on campus, unfortunately, the smaller parking lots located on the South and East end (respectively) tend to get filled with faculty and a sprinkle of students. What this means is that you sometimes will have to walk from the West side of campus to the East side and back. If you aren't bothered by a little jaunt, good for you, but parking can be a struggle to find early in the mornings when you're rushing late to class. On top of that, try that stint in the dead of a Kansas winter, wind chill slicing through you like butter. My other gripe with parking is that because the basketball team is incredibly popular, on game days the parking lot is even sectioned off in order to prepare for the basketball game traffic. This leaves students in a tight spot who may inadvertently park in a wrong spot, forget to move their car, or who are unable to get to their vehicle in time to move it, earning them a ticket in upwards of $100. Very aggressive and unnecessarily punitive parking standards. Rolling upgrades have gradually lifted the aesthetic & physical portions of campus, improving buildings and creating more appealing areas to explore, study or hang out. The Rhatigan Student Center in the center of campus is a great spot for all of the above and it even includes a cafeteria with a variety of grub. Campus life is vibrant with a multitude of interestingly diverse clubs, groups and Greek life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Wichita State! The classes are very engaging and I am learning so much from my teachers! The class sizes are smaller, so you can get ore help if you need it. I take online classes and my professors are great! If I email them, I usually get a response within a few hours.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wichita State University has tons of opportunities to get involved and meet new people. There are plenty of fun events for students. I have met some amazing people and friends that I have no doubt I will be friends with for years to come. It feels like home. Plus, who doesn't love a mascot that's a bundle of wheat? The Shocker Men's Basketball games are always exciting, but if that's not your thing there are some cool events put on by the Student Activities Council. There's really something for everyone here. It has that small college feel that you can't find with most big universities. Highly recommend becoming a part of Shocker Nation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved the fact that they had an on-campus police station basically right at the front of campus so that you cannot miss it. I loved how involved they seemed in their community with their artwork and how it seemed that alumni came to give back after they graduated. I really thought the caterpillar statue was cool and showed that your school was unique and interesting. Another perk was that it the campus was so close to major stores so all you had to do was drive for maybe five minutes and then you'd be at Walmart or Pizza Hut.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I love it!!! I feel very safe, it’s super clean and it’s the perfect size! My biggest complaint would be the dining hall gets old quickly, and as a freshman you are required to have a meal plan. Also it gets very expensive eating off campus, so I would like more variety and switching it up more often.
