Fort Hays State University Reviews
Review Fort Hays State University
The quality of the majority of my courses that I have been/am in enrolled in is overall very satisfying. The courses I had taken last semester were mostly General Education classes which were decently solid. The classes I am taking this semester are a little bit more of General Education classes along with some of my major classes. The professors here are amazing! They are all very nice, and really genuinely care about my education. Not to mention, they know me by name and say hi to me whenever they see me around campus. The variety of courses offered are immense and some I didn't ever think cold exist. The class sizes are what is really cool about this place. There is not so many people in one class that the professor just doesn't know our names. The high school I attended was a 4A D2 high school and the class sizes I had there are very close if not smaller than the ones I have here. It is very relaxing and secure knowing the class sizes aren't extreme.
One of my favorite experiences so far is just meeting all the new people who also attend here. It is very cool to see how different people live their lives so much differently than I do. What makes my school unique is we are the cheapest 4-year school in the state of Kansas, which definitely helps many people out financially. I would choose to go to this school again if I could do it all over because the people are great, the teachers actually know me personally, and they're very nice. The community in this town is just very home-like and it's been a great experience so far!
Fort Hays state University was just names the third largest university in kansas. Although it is the third largest it still has that small school charm that many students like. Overall it is a great school for the price that anyone pays. The classes are small but that means there is more one on one interaction with the professors. It is also important to note that just about all professors know each of their students. This is what Fort Hays is all about, making sure that the students feel comfortable and feel at home. If you are looking for a small town charm, then Hays is for you, but if bigger cities are your forte, Hays isn't quite the fit. Personally I have grown to love rhe atmosphere that surrounds Hays and the University. For the most part people in Hyas are friendly and accommodating and know how to bring spirit to its everyone around. Come to Fort Hays State University, it's inviting and friendly and a real bang for your buck!!
