Wichita State provides, on average, more than $100 million in grants, scholarships and student loans each year. WSU also offers three of the state’s largest individual undergraduate scholarships: the Harry Gore Memorial Scholarships and the Clay Barton Scholarship.
WSU offers academics through several colleges, including the College of Education, College of Engineering, College of Fine Arts, College of Health Professions, Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Pre-Professional College, and the W. Frank Barton School of Business.
With a focus on experience-based learning, Wichita State focuses on real world learning, not just academic testing. This school believes that by preparing students for future jobs, they are also expanding their experience, thus making them more marketable to prospective employers.

Wichita State has a wide variety of activities and groups to be involved in. As a nursing student, I am in one building for all of my classes but feel very connected to the whole university. Recently, all eyes have been on WSU since the men's basketball team is doing so well this season. Hopefully with all of this attention, more people will see Wichita State as the great university it really is. Many of my most memorable experiences have come from different activities on campus. Convocation at the beginning of every school year is a great time to kick off the year and meet new people.
WSU is a great school for students who know what they want to major in, and for others who aren't quite sure what they're passion is yet. The advisers here are fantastic, and are at least willing to point you in the right direction. The classes here have great professors (right now my two favorite are my psychology professor and my Geology professor), and the teachers here are willing to talk after class with you if you are having problems. The student life here is also excellent, and the students here come from a variety of backgrounds. My main tip is: check for scholarships, and if you think there aren't any for you, KEEP LOOKING. There is a scholarship out there for anyone, and WSU lists a great many scholarships on their website.
