Kansas State University Reviews
I really enjoyed the student involvement atmosphere. My visit to Kansas State was very professional and well planned out. The campus was beautiful and easy to navigate between buildings. My tour guide answered all my questions fully and helped me to feel comfortable in this new environment. Overall, my experience was great!
Kansas state has been an outstanding experience so far! The atmosphere here on campus is indescribable. Everyone is willing to help and always give you a welcoming smile. You really feel part of the community in Manhattan, the town bleeds purple and it something you don't just see but feel. The campus is very helpful with providing resources for you to go after your dreams. You never feel alone or lost because you have so many available resources to help guide you.
I felt very involved and loved as I had my campus tour! Met up with a club president which coincided with my intended major and made me even more excited! I cannot wait to fully attend and move down there. The campus is beautiful and incredibly home-y. The school colors aren't too shabby, either. I definitely recommend it! I love the look of Manhattan, too. Looking forward to study groups and getting together with people to further my education!
