"I transferred to K-State as a junior in the Communication Sciences and Disorders program. I went right into my junior sequence and immediately started CSD classes. At first, I was overwhelmed and stressed about all of the worrying comments I had previously heard about the junior sequence. However, all of the teachers were very helpful and did their best to make sure we all understood what was being taught. The teachers are there for you when you need help with school, or in any other area. I would recommend students look into the program and deeply consider going to K-State. They offer many opportunities to learn outside of the class room, such are research and KSSSLHA."

"Kansas State University is a family. It is a community of respect and full of purple everywhere you look. While it is most commonly known for its agricultural and engineering degrees, I pursued a degree in History. The History Department was full of very experienced and diligent professors and instructors who honestly cared for the success of their students. The smaller class sizes allowed for more efficient learning and closer bonds between the students and many of my peers in those classes remain very good friends."

"During my college search, I visited nine schools in the Midwest. However, one visit to Kansas State wouldnt suffice. After three trips for assurance sake, I left my hometown and embarked on the best journey life has offered me thus far. Upon my arrival at K-State, I knew two people: one was a family friend who was influential in my decision to attend KSU and continued to make a positive impact at the University as a Graduate Teaching Assistant after receiving an undergraduate degree. The other was a good friend who joined me on this college endeavor. Since then, I have been humbled by the number of genuine friendships, academic, personal, and professional connections that have become some of the most important parts of my life, all thanks to Kansas State. Simply put, the K-State Family business is no joke."

"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."

"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."
