Wichita is very different from Chicago. It is definitely smaller. The systems used in the city are not as efficient, such as the traffic light system. People are friendly but I have also found that they seem more closed-minded. The job opportunities are high because of the many aerospace companies located here.

It isn't as bad as Chicago, which is where I'm from. There are not as many homeless people here or graffiti but there are problems on the university campus. There have been armed robberies and while it has been advertised that there will be a higher police presence, that does not seem to be the case.
I love the location in reference to my school and work
