The campus is well laid out, and people are generally friendly. The buildings are sometimes old, but renovations to the interior bely the beautiful exterior that many hold. The town can seem small, but there is everything a college student needs to survive. Students hold lots of pride in K-State, and Aggieville is fun from Thursday to Sunday.
Despite large lectures for major classes, the professors seem genuinely focused on teaching undergraduate courses. Many stress their office hours and help sessions, and smaller recitation classes provide a very personal experience. The average grade in many classes and on tests is a C, and getting an A in many classes is an accomplishment. The range of classes offered is huge, both in the areas of extracurricular classes and within each major. The engineering college at K-State is widely regarded as very successful. With an expansive set of buildings and ample funding, the programs draw high schoolers from all over the world. However, the number of females in the programs is relatively small, with Electrical engineering being one of the worst offenders. However, upon completion of the programs, students genuinely seem to be ready for a real job.
The campus is hardly diverse. I felt like I had entered the Blue Valley district upon first reaching K-State. LGBT issues are rarely discussed widely, but said students definitely exist on campus. Many students I've encountered fall either into the categories of suburbanites or farmers. Not much exists in between. Also, most students in the Engineering curriculum come from well off families. The political sentiment on campus is mostly right wing, with a recent protest for concealed carry on campus proving that point. However, small groups of students like myself do fall into the more liberal category.
