Wichita State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (6)
I had a wonderful college experience. The campus truly feels like a community - a home. For the most part, I had great instructors who truly connected with their students. I'm proud of the education I received.
A great school for students in the Kansas area. Close to home, plenty of diversity with the large numbers of international students, lots of clubs and organizations to join and lead. Seen as largely a commuter campus but I lived on-campus all 4 years and had an amazing experience and met some of my best friends in the dorms and campus apartments. Lots of emphasis on cooperative education, internships and career services to get students out and exposed to the working world even before they graduate. And now apparently a star basketball school! I wouldn't recommend WSU for out-of-state students, though. This is very much a Kansas university, and Wichita isn't a city that someone who didn't grow up there would enjoy.
I am proud to be a Wichita State Shocker! Growing up in Wichita, Kansas, I always wanted to be a shocker. The experience and quality instruction helped me prepare for my career. I had many professors impact my love for teaching and learning. Becoming a physical educator through Wichita State is valued by many school districts throughout Wichita. During my interview with my current employer, I shared my love for Wichita State and he values my degree as much as I do. I even started my Masters in Counseling program at Wichita State. I could have chosen to go to another university that wasn't as expensive, however, I knew that I would obtain a quality degree!
It was an awesome school built more on experience and networking and creating a great overall. The academics are there, but they more prepare you for life after college than to just get a degree. It was fantastic for commuting and allowed me to be involved in a level I chose.
I had a wonderful practicum which taught me so much; however, the actual classes were virtually worthless, at least to a BSW choosing to pursue therapy. The school's perspective and lens were so broad you ended up learning very little by trying to cover too much. I graduated feeling like a jack of all trades and master of none. Newman and Friends have better programs if you want to be a therapist.
Wichita State University is was a perfect fit for me. This University coupled instruction with the opporunity to work in industry.
Yes, This student offered an excellent mix of theory and practical application.
Find something you love to do. Don't always pick a career or college based on how much money you will make or how happy it will make your family. Do what's best for you.
