    Wichita State University has made myself more academically motivated. I know, as a student, I have others who want to help me achieve my goals and succeed. I feel comfortable using the resources offered to us. I love student pride - especially at home basketball games! We love cheering on our shockers! Overall, I'm excited to be a shocker, I do enjoy going to class and learning from professors who will help me reach my future goals. I'm proud to be a student at Wichita State Student

    There are definitely some good professors here, but there are a lot of inexperienced ones too, probably just using the university as a stepping stone in their own careers. Like most schools, sometimes you get what you're paying for and sometimes you don't. Tuition is pretty low however compared to other state universities, so I rate this a 4.

    Wichita State University's quality for the amount of money students spend is amazing. I would not choose any other school in the state.
