Friends is an amazing college. It’s very diverse, there are a lot of activities on campus to keep you busy! The athletic teams are really fun to go and watch. The housing is #1 in Kansas and one of the best in the nation! The food is really good. You get a buffet with different options to choose from! The professors are very nice and hands on with students! The other students are very nice and friendly. I would highly recommend spending 4 years at Friends to get your degree!

If a person wants to grow in their spiritual path and journey with God while achieving the highest academics imaginable then friends is outstanding! As a student athlete the hours for athletics and academics are very manageable and yield to very well rounded individuals. Friends offers a beautiful campus with the number one dorms in the state of Kansas. The facilities are up to date and are maintained fairly well. This tight knit university encompasses the community, faith, and family all in one small campus. Highly recommended!
If you decide to live on campus at Friends you will not regret it! Every resident building is with in all walking distances to any buildings you may have class in. All the resident halls I have been in are well kept and clean. The rooms in Smith are a little smaller and most of the sinks in all the kitchens in any of the res halls are too small. If you are willing to get over small sinks, I assure you living on campus will be worth your time. There is no commute in the busy city of Wichita and you are so close to all of your classmates, teammates, coworkers, and most importantly friends!
