What is your overall opinion of this school?

My teachers are passionate about what they teach. In all of my classes the teachers get excited, even for the lecture classes. The students around me enjoy the curriculum, I hear very few complaints from fellow students. One of my favorite things about the school is the after class options. Not only are the teacher easy to contact, but outside activities are encouraged and provided. Being part of the art school there are many art lectures, art movie nights, and we are required in classes to be a part of the art scene in town. Both in class and out of class passion is encouraged.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wichita State University is a great place for a student of any age to receive an education. It offers a lower cost than other schools do, which expands learning to a greater and poorer group of individuals. Wichita State has a relatively small campus, but it still offers a lot. This is great for students who don't have ways to get around. Especially if one were to live directly on campus. They also have multiple places to eat at all times of the day. The jobs on campus are great because it works around one's schedule.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wichita State University, has yet to disappoint me. I have now spent two months on campus as a student and I am overwhelmed with the support that has been provided by the staff, and students. It truly provides a "at home" environment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Throughout my first year at Wichita State, I was coming to understand firsthand the incredible challenges of college. I was terrible at math and on the verge of failing, but there were so many resources like the Math Lab that include math tutors that saved me from that. When I needed help with various essays, the Writing Center told me everything that was great about my writing as well as the areas I needed to work on. Shocker Hall really makes people feel included in a community where it is impossible to not make friends. The GroundHouse was there when I needed to pull all nighters, as it is open until 2 AM. The professors will extend their office hours for you if you need it, and the academic advisors really make everything convenient. I almost didn't attend WSU, but now I'm glad I did.

Wichita State University

My experience at Wichita State University was wonderful. I majored in Secondary Math Education, and I felt very prepared to be a teacher when I graduated. WSU has a wonderful partnership with USD 259 and I was afforded many opportunities to be in the classroom working with students and teachers for two full school years. This experience was invaluable. My advisor and my professors were also excellent and incredibly supportive, and I felt that I could go to them for help whenever I needed it. Overall I had a wonderful experience at WSU and would highly recommend this university for anyone who is interested in majoring in education.

WSU is a good school. We have brand new dorms. The basketball team is great. The area that it is in is not very safe--keep your eyes peeled and I carry mace with me to class. I like most of my professors. We have a wide diversity in ages, but not really in race. It's mostly white people. If I could improve two things it would be safety and diversity.

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

The stereotype at Wichita State is that there is nothing to do at school or in the city, which is not true. The city of Wichita has a booming downtown where you can get great food and see a movie. We also have a imax theater where you can see a 3d movie and we have intrust bank arena where we had the acts like Taylor Swift, Trey Songz, and Lil Wayne preform. Wichita State also offers a number of amazing activities for students to do from golfing to working out and tons of great things to keep you going. So the stereotype that their is nothing to do in Wichita is not true. Wichita is what you make it and if you make it fun than you will have a blast being at Wichita State and living in my hometown of Wichita.

What are the academics like at your school?

The academics at Wichita state are some of the best. The professors and faculty really make school fun and easy for you by making sure that the classroom are small. They also are flexible with your schedule so they offer morning afternoon and evening class so that everyone can get the education that they deserve.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I were to go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would of told myself these following things. Life has not even begun yet. The college experiences I have experienced now does not even compare to the memories I had in highschool. The people who you meet in college will be the people who will stay in your life, you will meet your bestfriends there, you will make lifetime memories and it will probably be the best moments of your life. I would say to my high school self that being in large groups of volunteering outstandingly help you make the transition in college. It helps create a good resume and allows colleges to see the true potential in you. I would recommend my younger self to take part in many organizations in college, this will allow you to meet more people and benefit the college campus as a whole. This will create a much quicker responce to comfort. Most of all, I would tell myself that you shouldn't care what others think about you, this is your future, take it and do it proudly.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I find the most frustrating thing about my school is the lack of clear speaking schools that WSU has. Most of engineering professors are Indian, in all respect, they are wonderful teachers; but they are very hard to understand with their accents and makes it much difficult for me to learn.
