"Wichita State University is a great school! They offer degrees and student life for both working professionals and the traditional college student adventure. There are flexible schedule times and class types, a really helpful financial aid department, and an amazing staff at Disability Support Services for students who accommodations. There were a number of times I didn't think I would make it to graduate and thanks to the supportive staff and campus organizations, I not only made it through with my Bachelors Degree, but two minors as well. P.S. There's always an event or social happening going on, on or around campus!"

"Before attending Wichita State University, I attended a larger private university. I attended this private university because I was told private universities provide better academics and student involvement. I can definitively say that Wichita State was more rewarding both academically and personally than the private university I had attended. Putting it concisely, Wichita State makes you feel at home. The campus is going through a massive renovation and is absolutely beautiful. The dorms and student center are brand new. The basketball team is regularly ranked in the top 25 and the games are an absolute blastalmost always sold out. The baseball team won the College World Series in 1989 and the stadium is one of the best in the NCAA. Academically, my professors took an interest in my development. Almost all my classes had less than 30 students, and never once was I taught by a graduate student / TA. Local businesses take a massive interest in the university, and as a result, recruiters are almost always on campus. The accounting, economic and finance programs are very highly regarded for the area, and Koch, Spirit Aerosystems, Textron and other publicly traded companies regularly hire from their ranks. If I could do it all again, I wouldnt have wasted my money attending the private university and would have spent all four years at Wichita State. I cannot say enough positive things about this university. Its an affordable higher education that worth attending."

"I would highly recommend Wichita State University. It has so much to offer, from student organizations to sports. We have one of the best men's basketball coaches in the United States. My degree was in education and the program offered lots of field experience where I was in the classroom getting hands on experience!! The professors were very helpful and knew our individual needs. I take pride in being a Wichita State University graduate!"

"My degree program allowed me to meet great leaders in my community. Seeing their passion, and my professors' care for their students inspire me to become an urban sociology professor, contributing my skills to bettering a community through community engagement projects and higher education."

"I really enjoyed my time at Wichita State University. The majority of the professors in the School of Art and Design were talented in their own right, as well as, good instructors. They are flexible and understanding, while providing valuable feedback for projects. I did however have a handful of professors who lacked teaching skills and provided criticism without adequate feedback. At least 2 of those professors are no longer at Wichita State. Overall, Wichita State was a positive experience."

"I thoroughly enjoyed being a student of Wichita State University. The professors took real interest in the well-being of their students, furthermore, class sizes were limited enough that each teacher could dedicate individual time to their students. WSU is experience a lot of growth right now, and the campus continues to offer newer and better facilities for its students and educators."

"Wichita State University is a great place to attend. Situated in Wichita, KS, there are many cooperative education opportunities in your chosen field. The staff is friendly and will work with you as long as you keep them in the know. I have recently returned to WSU pursue an MBA."

"The professors and classes were great. However, there was a lack of flexibility in class times and formats offered. It was difficult for me to work a full time job and complete my degree."

"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."
