The best thing about K-state is it's community feeling and it's endless ways to get involved in many different organizations and clubs. Our campus is neither to big or to small, it is somewhat large, but again, gives you that community feeling of a close net campus. I personally spend alot of my time in Hale library on campus, it offers many great resources and is a great place for quite studying. I believe that Manhattan is definatly a college town, everywhere you look there are powercats and purple. K-state also shows that same pride right on campus. We have a great turnout for sporting events and other events on campus and everyone takes pride in being a wildcat. One experiance I will always remember is the Texas game last year, where we beat them and rushed the field. It was a really great memory to have and be apart of. A frequent student complaint is parking on campus, but hopefully the parking garage will help with that issue.
Some professors know my name, but it is usually in my smaller more intimate classes. Large lecture classes of 150+ are extremely hard to know names. My favorite class this semester is microeconomics, but because of the course itself, but because of the professor. He is very crazy and makes class really enjoyable. How often students study is really up to the student themselves and how their course load is. Some study every night for 4-6 hours, others for 4-6 hours per week. Class participation again goes with the class size. It's harder to get 250 people to all participate in something together all at once. I believe that K-state students are intellectual inside and outside of the class room and in every day life. K-staters are competitive, but in a good way. They always strive to do their best and have as much sucess as possible. The most unique class I have taken is Leadership development. It was a class that did not act like other classes with just lectures and homework all the time, it allowed you to voice your opinon and participate at a higher level. My major is business management/administration. I am new to the major but so far I am really enjoying it and am looking forward to the classes that are ahead. I do spend time with professors out side of class by attending office hours when I need help or assistance on any given homework. paper, or other assignment. I believe that K-state education is geared both for learning and for the work force. They teach you so that you grow and learn, but they also help you towards your ultimate goal of what you want to do outside of K-state.
I do not have much experiance with certain groups on campus, but i believe that the racial, religious, LGBT, socio-economic, etc groups, are all helping to unite our campus and promote diversity. I do not believe that any student should feel out of place on campus. There are plenty of groups and organizations to accomidate each and every student so that they feel involved and engaged with K-state life and campus. Most students wear t-shirts and sweat pants or t-shirts and jeans to class, given the time of day or the tempature that day. Many different types of student interact on campus here at K-state. Most K-state student are from Kansas either in a rural area or a city. I am not sure what financial background is most prevalent. I believe that many students are politically aware and active and do care about the politics of this country. Kansas has always been known to be more republican, However, I believe that K-state may also fit in that category, I also again believe that we have a very diverse population here at K-state that could believe differently. Some students do talk about what they wish to earn one day/ will earn one day, but that depends on the person.
