What Students Are Saying

3.67 Average Rating
Wichita State University is a four year college that is placed within the ever-growing city of Wichita, Kansas. It has a great set of dorm rooms for oncoming freshman, but most students choose to commute since WSU is so close to everything. The best thing about WSU is the fact that they have a program that any student can join, and the school will set the student up to do real-life work in jobs they want to work in, they do all this before the student graduates.
