Fort Hays State University Reviews
Review Fort Hays State University
The social, on-campus friendliness experience is hyped-up. Most of the student body ends up transferring or dropping out - the graduation rate is low. Fantastic staff, especially the professors with their fantastic backgrounds. Equipment for student use is great. The directors board leaves much to be desired here, however. The party scene was once a glorious wake of celebration around Hays campus - It's not quite what it used to be. The dorms were a nightmare - depending which you were in, however they ARE remodeling them. Student life does an adequate job of involving new students in student life activities. Campus safety also leaves much to be desired, considering the number of attacks I alone have known to happen on campus. Diversity is one of the most prominent features of this university. Students literally come from all over the globe to attend FHSU especially for it's affordable tuition, which I might add, for a university, is a BARGAIN.
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.
I like that Fort Hays State University has so many activities for students to participate in. The academics are incredible and the atmosphere is amazing. The only thing that I would probably change is the cafe food. But other than that, I really love FHSU!
