I like the small atmosphere here at KWU. I like how I can build relationships with so many people here. The facilities are great! The Salina community is amazing and Salina isn't far from my hometown. The professors are great and I like that I can continue my basketball career here at Kansas Wesleyan.
Though this is a smaller school and dorms can feel lack luster sometimes KWU is a fantastic school with great scholarships, job opportunities, and programs for students to be involved in!
I like the university by how personable and exciting the experience is as a student. The university staff and students in leadership like to involve everyone in everything they can with opportunities for work, events, and volunteering. it truly feels like a community. They have helped me with scholarships and I have enjoyed conversing with each staff member I have met. The environment is one of unity and the community around the school is incredibly supportive and wonderful.
