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.

Kansas Wesleyan is a great four year school. It is relatively small which makes it very easy to get to know your classmates and your professors. The sports programs at Kansas Wesleyan are also pretty talented as they have some of the best teams out of their conference.The town of Salina, which is where KW is located is also nice. As one of the bigger cities in Kansas, there are always plenty of things to do off campus.
Kansas Wesleyan is a great place with great opportunity. Small class sizes with plenty of resources and professors always willing to help. 15+ athletic programs for people looking to pursue college athletics as well as fine arts programs. Only change I would like to see is a decrease in tuition but the price is understandable considering KWU being a small, private school.
