Welcome to K-State!



Welcome to the K-State Family!

K-State is truly a special place. Nestled in the Flint Hills, Manhattan is home to a true family environment filled with people who genuinely care. Other places may talk about it, but at K-State you don't have to be here long to see it and experience it.

And our family is growing every day. Over $125 million of new facilities have opened in the last two years, with the $65 million Vanier Football Complex set to break ground later this year. Manhattan is the fastest growing metro in the state of Kansas, and Riley County is among the top-20 nationally in economic growth. More high school seniors choose K-State than any other university in the state, and another record enrollment this year means K-State has the largest on-campus student body in Kansas.

Add it all up, and it's a great time to be a Wildcat.

Explore the videos and links below to get an introduction to the various aspects of the K-State Family. Hear about the emphasis on academic success, and the support to attain it. See the beautiful campus, and the true college town that surrounds it. Experience the purple passion that all of Manhattan shares. This is K-State, and there's nothing like it.


THE FANS: PURPLE PRIDE 

"Everybody here loves Kansas State... We're always going to have fans there to support us. They want that relationship with us, they want to be able to talk to us, get to know us.

That's what makes this a whole family environment."

K-State: The Most Popular University in Kansas

K-State offers over 250 majors and options in 9 different colleges. No matter which you choose, the quality of a K-State education can be found both in the achievements of its students and by the accolades of its faculty.

In the last 25 years, K-State has won more Rhodes, Marshall, Truman, Goldwater and Udall scholarships than any other public university in the United States. K-State trails only 5 private institutions in top scholarship awards (Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Princeton, and Duke).

K-State is also the only research university in the country to have three national CASE/Carnegie professors of the year. All three are active teachers: Michael Wesch, 2008 national winner; Chris Sorensen, 2007 national winner; and Dean Zollman, 1996 national winner.

With such a reputation for excellence, it's no surprise that K-State's enrollment is the highest on-campus enrollment in the state. More Kansas high school seniors choose K-State than any other university in the state. Every county in the state, every state in the nation, and countries around the world are represented by students attending K-State.

Among Kansas public universities, K-State has the highest percentage of freshmen who return their sophomore year because K-State continually strives to provide students the best undergraduate experience.

LIFE IN THE LITTLE APPLE 

The Classic College Town

Manhattan was named by Men's Journal as one of the nation's "Top 50 Places to Live in the USA", and it is easy to see why.

Manhattan, nicknamed "The Little Apple", is a vibrant, multi-faceted community of 53,000 people. It is not only the fastest growing metro in Kansas, as Riley County is ranked among the top-20 counties in the nation for economic growth. Manhattan reflects the joys and opportunities of big-city living while retaining a friendly, open atmosphere.

Manhattan has many appealing places to shop, eat and socialize. Numerous award-winning local restaurants occupy the thriving downtown area, while Aggieville -- a district of shops and restaurants just beyond campus -- continues to be popular with students.

There are several beautiful parks and walking trails located throughout the city, while picturesque Tuttle Creek Reservoir sits just five miles from campus for seasonal swimming, water skiing and boating.

Add it all up, and you have what has been ranked as the #1 quality of life among American small cities.
