    There are tons of restaurants to choose from that aren't expensive. You could have a different meal everyday if you wanted to.

    In the Rhatgian Student Center, there is a couple of places to eat, like Chick-Fil-A, Pizza Hut, a sub place, a healthy place and an Italian place. Every worker in those eating places are always nice and always get what you need in a mannerly fashion.

    There are a lot of cuisines available in the dining hall, healthy and fresh, including international food which seems a lot exciting to international people as well. The university dining will now be operated by a company that has catered for big events like Oscars. Sometimes the dining offers midnight breakfast for students during exams so that the students can reduce their stress a little bit because of the frenzy finals.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    The dining area located in Shocker hall is great. It's served buffet style. As soon as you walk in, there is a majestic fireplace that makes the environment feel like a modern restaurant rather then a cafeteria. The food is served in five major locations. One location holds a salad bar along with lunch meat to make sandwiches. Another location is the grill/main entree section where the main dishes are served along with sides. There is also a international section (When I went they were serving an asian style chicken with rice and veggies). There is also a pizza area where various types of pizza are served (they know how much college students love pizza). And the last section is a desert area with various pre made deserts along with an ice cream machine. Overall the food tasted good and the was a very large variety. I enjoyed my meal and wouldn't mind eating there continuously through the week.

    Greek Life is phenomenal here and each of the houses for both fraternities and sororities contribute a lot to Wichita State University.

    The Fraternity and Sorority community at Wichita State University is full of tradition, brotherhood/ sisterhood and pride. From participating in Hippodrome and Shocktoberfest events as well as playing Intramurals, Greeks know how to show school spirit at WSU. Our members proudly represent at WSU athletic events, hold leadership positions in numerous student organizations and carry out some of the top fundraising events at WSU.

  • I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    It's not bad as I thought it was going to be. TV makes sororities and fraternities look so bad. But it's not like that at all.

    I am a sorority woman. Honestly, Greek life has changed my outlook of life, and education. I value the meaning of community service, I am always encouraged to do my best in academics all while having a huge support system.
