Overall Rating

They are really great with scholarships and financial aid. It is a smaller school, so the faculty and student body are both friendly and helpful. The staff will do whatever they can to help you succeed.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

Kansas State is a good school, especially for older students. It has a great Greek Life program, lots of scholarships, and there is help available everywhere for people who are having issues with classes. One issue with K-State is that the food in the Union is VERY expensive, so plan for that. If you go there, get a Cat Cash card, because you get extra money each time you load cash on the card. Plan to walk a lot, and plan your classes accordingly, this campus is HUGE and you only have 10 minutes between classes.
