Kansas State University Reviews
Review Kansas State University
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.
I love K-State! My family has a long history of being Wildcats, and I am glad I got to carry on the tradition. However, having come from out of state was still daunting. I had not known anyone when I came to college, but the k-State Family pulled through. While it may sound extremely cheesy, I really do think that this school is as close to a family as a state school can be. I never walk to class without seeing at least one person I know and everywhere I go I'm greeted with smiles and waves. The pride in K-State is also pretty amazing. On any given day more than 40% of the people on campus are wearing purple. It is truly an amazing school!
Great college for engineering! The campus is clean and ever expanding, there are plenty of living choices such as dorms, frats, apartments. The professors are generally very friendly, and the major specific courses are challanging and deep. Plus tuition is recently priced at the time of writing this review. The only major gripe is with the freshman starter classes. They are not kind on people new to the college experience. Though, to be completely honest, this isn't too bad, as many universities nowadays put too much focus on keeping students paying, rather than suceeding.
