Wichita State University Reviews

Wichita State University is a solid university with its great diversity in available courses and student life. The student population is very diverse with half of Wichita State's students being First Generation. Its academics and professors are high quality in comparison to its relatively low tuition, and scholarships and financial aid are widely available. The campus is also patrolled 365 days a year, 24/7 to ensure safety for all students. There is a wide selection of on-campus dining and the campus is located conveniently near many other food establishments, supermarkets, entertainment, shopping, etc.
I like it a lot. Campus is decently small, which makes getting around really easy. Housing is a bit expensive on campus, but off campus is cheap. The city itself is a bit boring, but if you have good friends, you’ll be able to find plenty of things to do.
Applied and accepted. Campus visit was incredible, they really make you feel like you are their top priority.
It could definitely be better this year but with COVID, I would say that it has influenced my opinion of the campus.
When going to college for the first time anybody would be lost of words with how different it feels from what school used to be like. At Wichita State University the teachers will kindly help out a student in need of help but before the teacher needs to step in there is always one or two fellow classmates that would offer a helping hand. The biggest thing that I like about Wichita State University is that there is so many kinds of interesting people that along with me share in a way the same goals and work hard to make our dreams come true.
It was an alright experience, the classes weren't that hard and the environment was nice as well I didn't have many issues My only regret was that I didn't g t a smaller university so I could have had a better relationship with my teachers .I also made some life long friends. I gained a lot of knowledge going to Wichita State University. But going back to my point about wanting to go to a smaller university, like I said previously, if I had gone to a smaller university I would have built a better connection with my teachers, as well as my assignments in some aspects
Learning online has been incredible and easy to learn. I feel more free and the environment is more comfortable.
Amazing staff!! I love the spirit and encouragement WSU brings to the students!! I highly recommend choosing WSU as your dream school.
Wichita state university's online curriculum could use some help. It is mostly up to the instructor on how the class goes. Most times, contacting an instructor is rather hard. There is more coursework than necessary. It's hard to get into contact with classmates. I would prefer in-person or hybrid classes over online classes. Students are mostly teaching themselves in the classes.
I have taken several summer classes online as well as online classes that were switched due to covid. Overall, I think WSU did a good job at handling the sudden switch over when covid hit. The summer courses are rigorous and tough at times because teachers really enjoy assigning homework and tests, but so far I have not done too bad in any of my online classes.
Wichita State is a very genuine and friendly college. It is filled with so many nice and amazing people who are willing to help you out no matter what. Their goal is to make sure students get to exactly where they want to be and it's nice knowing they care about you as a person and not just as a statistic. One thing they could improve on is their advisors. It can get confusing at times because they don't always know where you are in your college journey.
Most of my courses have been online, the professors really tried to adjust but most of them had trouble and decided to do everything autonomous instead. I have only had one class in person and one on zoom. Out of 8 courses 6 were completely autonomous. I would have preferred to have some type of instruction but did not receive any.
I did not get to enjoy Wichita State as much as I would have liked to, because of the pandemic. But I liked how professional and understanding the professors were. I am currently an accounting major taking some gen ed classes and everyone is very respectful. My advisor was extremely helpful on choosing my courses for the semester. There is not a whole lot to do on campus from what I have seen and heard. But the school is definitely worth the cost.
Absolutely love it!!!!!!! Covid has definitely put a damper on it but still such a great experience.
So far I have had an incredibly welcoming and inclusive experience at Wichita state. I have been involved with the Student Ambassador Society, Student Government Association, fine arts Glee Chorus, Honors student Council, Delta Gamma Sorority, and am the president of the Green Group environmental club on campus. I have gotten to meet many incredible leaders in these organizations, and I have found myself being pushed into uncomfortable growing periods that were necessary to my success. I love the diversity we have here at WSU, and I can always find a helping hand whenever I reach out. There are a multitude of resources available to students, like free tutoring, plenty of quiet study spaces, free admission to sports and fine arts events, and with over 300 organizations, plenty of places to belong! I hope everyone gets the chance to feel so at home in their university as I have at WSU.
Having professors from all over the world has made it difficult to learn at times, but all of my professors have been able to help when needed.
It has been hard to review this college because of Covidbut they have adapted pretty well. WSU teachers and advisors have been very easy to get ahold of during this time of all online school.
