I completed my undergrad here, I work here, and have started my graduate degree here. It's a wonderful environment, but I do wish we had a more diverse student population. I know that our Enrollment Management team and Diversity office are currently working on recruitment methods to help increase diversity on campus. The Manhattan, KS community bleeds Wildcat Purple, and has an excellent relationship with the University. There is always something to do in town or on campus, so students can take a break and unwind whenever they need to. We have faculty that are outstanding in their fields. I am definitely going to be a Wildcat for life.
Kansas State University is a large public university, but it still feels small. It is smaller than other public universities in other states, but I like the size of Kansas State. The majority of the students and staff are friendly and approachable. There is a wide variety of courses offered. I appreciate that they are trying to get more graduate programs online.
