Kansas State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (27)
I attended Kansas State University for the Bachelor's of Science in Dietetics. I graduated in 2007, at which time I was accepted into a Dietetic Internship program at another school. I felt that the quality of the instruction within the program at K-State was exceptional; however, the rigor of some of the courses, namely the clinical nutrition courses, could have been increased. On the other hand, if you're interested in a career in foodservice management, I don't believe you'll find a more rigorous program. I felt very prepared for my dietetic internship after I completed my undergraduate degree at K-State. While an undergrad, there are numerous opportunities to take part in extracurricular activities to increase your knowledge of the career. There is a Student Dietetics Association that meets regularly and can help participants practice taking on leadership roles. There is also a Student Nutrition Advisory Committee that has an impact on campus life. The faculty in the program are all active in the field, working as researchers, counselors, managers, or clinical dietitians. This increases their relevance within the current climate of the career, and also helps students see what jobs are practical with this degree. Overall, the program is strong, reasonably-priced, and a solid way to prepare for an internship and then a career in dietetics. Its reputation is also positive within the field; graduating from K-State gives you a leg up over some other candidates from less well-regarded programs.
Kansas State University lives up to the hype around being the #1 school in the big 10. It's infrastructure is pretty amazing for being the size that it is. I was satisfied with my class sizes and quality of professors. The university does a great job of supporting students in all areas of high education. Proud to call this school my alma mater!
K-State offers quality education with a rigorous curriculum that prepared me for the job market. I was employed immediately after completing my degree and have become a very resourceful individual. The advising and mentorship l received from my department instructors was very specific to what l was seeking. I would recommend anyone to k-state any day.
It was a great place. Lots of opportunities to meet people and join in school spirit/activities. Professors were very friendly and encouraging.
I thoroughly enjoyed everything about my experience at K-State. The faculty is very invested in their graduate students- truly believing that they are the future of their fields and acting accordingly. The atmosphere in Manhattan is amazing, the people are nice, and as a graduate student you have ample opportunities for new experience that will help build your resume before you ever graduate.
If you don't like the school that you are at transfer don't stay there just because you don't want to switch schools. It will make things so much easier on you if you just transfer
K-State is not only a welcoming and supportive community, but the curriculum provided me with the knowledge and skills I needed to continue my education into medical school. I would happily recommend my alma mater to anyone.
Kansas State is a great school with an environment that makes you feel like you are part of a family. Campus is compact and it and the town are easily walk-able. The students, staff and locals are all very friendly. Great place to live and go to school.
I loved my experience. It was so much more about growing as a person and finding new opportunities than it was about what I learned in the classroom; K-State was the perfect place to do this!
Kansas State was a great place, large but it's easy to find a place to fit into a group of people if you try! It won't take much to try. I regret not getting more involved with different groups and activities on campus. Most people at Kansas State and Manhattan are awesome! Manhattan is a great town, one of my absolute favorites! One thing I didn't love about Kansas State; many of my classes were taught by T.A.'s which I didn't think was right. I paid a lot of money for my Education and I feel a Professor should be teaching almost all courses within all Majors; classes that complete a Minor I think are fine to be taught by people with a little lesser degree but I think it's important that experts are the ones in front of the class. Also, some of the class sizes were very large which made it difficult to connect with Teachers. Overall my experience was pretty good, most of the bad was due to my lack of effort! The sporting events were a BLAST which made the experience that much more fun!
