Kansas State University Reviews
I enjoyed the feeling I get when I'm on campus. Everyone is kind and helpful! I haven't met a full-time professor that I haven't been able to talk to and be comfortable in their class. Everyone here truly is invested in your success and wants to see you live the best life you can on this campus. There is a large lack in diversity and with the recent problems with racial violence through posters up around campus and various social media scandals, I feel that this place is becoming less safe for minority students, which is a huge problem. The administration finds it hard to admit there are any problems and thus keep it off their hands in return for the hatred to still be present on campus. I hope they begin to sit up a little bit more on the real issues happening on campus.
Kansas State is an awesome University. Highly underrated. There's a family feel on campus, everyone makes you feel welcome. Manhattan is a small town, yet can feel somewhat urbanized, which is amazing. The academics are the most underrated part of Kstate! I say we are one of the best in the Midwest at least! The students from urban areas tend to be heavy liberal, while the rural kids are more moderate to conservative. Overall it's about as liberal as any other midwest campus is! Very diverse for a college 2 hours out from a major urban center!
Kansas State is a wonderful university. I highly recommend it. I transferred here after my Freshman year of college and I do not regret it! All of the teachers and staff are highly trained and always willing to do whatever it takes to help you succeed. Also, everybody here is super nice and friendly. The university is located in Manhattan, Kansas. It's the perfect college town. Everything you need is within a 10 minute drive. I personally love the atmosphere of the campus and the town, everybody bleeds K-State purple and it fills you with pride. The academics are astounding and the sporting events are so much fun! Every football game is sold out because the town genuinely loves and supports the University all that much, it makes me proud to call this place home. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else.
