Wichita State University Reviews
What I definitely love the most about Wichita State are the students. Everyone is connected to a very large friend group - from the people in their classes, to former or current roommates to friends of friends - and I love that! I'm a really extraverted person, so being able to make lots of connections and build relationships is something I find a lot of enjoyment in. However, I will say one of WSU's greatest downfalls is the use of Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTA) to teach an entire class. I know they'll have to one day teach a class, but a lot of the GTAs seem a little unprepared for it. Also, off the GTAs I have, some of them have even taught lecture for twenty minutes and let students go. Professors can take up the full hour with one lecture, so GTAs should be held to the same standard. In all honesty, this is just a small problem I have with WSU so far, so I hope it will change as I go forward in my degree program!
I live in the newly furnished dorms called the flats on campus are really nice and very well taken care of. In the lobby, there is pool, shuffleboard, and ping pong to play. Outside there is a sand volleyball court, grill and seating, and a pool. Academic Rigor You will have the typical one or two teachers that irritate you the way they teach, but they are still very good. Every teacher I have is really good and want the best for me. Tips for prospective students Do your best and find people that you automatically click with. Go to the events. Make memories. Talk to people you do not know. Have fun, but not blackout fun. Wichita State is one of the best colleges, to me. The college always makes sure you're on top of things. During the school year, they have fun events that you can attend for free and they are always fun to attend!
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!
