Wichita State University is more than I could of ever asked for! The campus is absolutely beautiful. It's extremely cozy and just feels like home! The campus life is rapidly improving, along with new facilities which is creating buzz among the students. The basketball team is doing amazing for the last couple years which creates a sense pride that is unmatched. The professors are extremely knowledgeable and fair. It's safe to say that Wichita State University is up and coming and already is one of the best schools in the region!
Review Wichita State University
Wichita State University is full of amazing Professors and a large abundance of class courses to choose from. It's a budding campus slowly incorporating businesses and a few future job opportunities for engineers. It's Fine Art and Liberal art buildings are known for flooding and ruining their students expensive/professional work, classrooms, and causing mold. It's theater students have been known to go on to Broadway with growing careers; art students tend to become independent professional artists, and school of opera holds high regards across 4-year schools for housing infamous opera stars as professors. The school refuses to pay working students more than minimum wage (though a few jobs hold an exception to this), loves to cover up rape and racism, and is focused more on money than it's students.
I graduated from there after 4 years. The undergraduate prerequisite courses were top-notch with top-notch teachers. The sports and extra-curricular activities available were awesome, I had fun with the different ethnic clubs and organizations. The nursing program is THE BEST! Thank you for an awesome 4 years!
