I was lucky enough to visit K-State's campus frequently in high school, and I always dreamed of becoming a Wildcat. Then, during my senior year, I began receiving handwritten notes from students and advisors on campus. That's when I felt like I was a part of the Wildcat family.

"I think it’s pretty incredible that I can call all 24,750 students — from all 50 states and more than 100 countries — my family. It is the pride, spirit and family dynamic at K-State that makes it more than just a school, but a place to call home."

K-State invests in your success as an individual. Each of the 250 majors and programs are led by the most caring, dedicated and professional faculty members out there. Faculty, staff and students take a special pride in the university that makes K-State the awesome place it is today.
Stop and smell the history
I love taking visitors to see the Kansas State University Gardens. The Gardens are located at the historic K-State Dairy Barn, so you can almost feel the history in the air, along with the great floral smells. No matter how many times I go there, I always enjoy seeing the beautiful plants and special collections.
Home sweet home

I never imagined I would walk across a high wire during my time at K-State. With a few safety ropes and a lot of encouragement, I survived the high ropes at the K-State Challenge Course. Visiting the Challenge Course is great because it promotes team building, problem solving, trust development and communication, all under the care of trained facilitators.
It's okay to ask for help! Whether it's academic, personal or professional, it never means you're failing if you ask for help. I have learned this lesson several times over. I'm thankful to have met the most patient and helpful professors, staff and classmates during my time at K-State.
Worth the effort
Achieving a higher education requires investments of time, money and effort, but it's an invaluable opportunity. Seeking a degree from K-State means you can study a subject you love at an advanced level. Your mind will be challenged and you'll appreciate learning for it's own sake, as well as gaining knowledge and skills for later in life.
I chose agricultural education because it offered the perfect combination of my passion for agriculture and my love of working with people. My freshman year, I was able to teach a lesson at a local high school. I loved working with the energetic high school students as well as the idea of teaching different subjects every hour. I knew agricultural education was right for me.
Pick and choose
With more than 475 clubs and organizations, K-State makes it easy to personalize your experience. Find a group that shares your passions or try something new! However, find a few things you're interested in and remember to stay focused on academics. It's easy to become overwhelmed with responsibilities and commitments, so be practical as you look for great ways to get involved on campus.
One of the best things about Manhattan is its beautiful location near Tuttle Creek and the Konza Prairie. The best way to experience The Little Apple is to just get out and enjoy it! Using the Outdoor Rental Center at the Recreation Complex is a great way to do this. I loved picking up a tent, kayak or canoe and embracing the wilderness with friends for a weekend.
I'm a plant fanatic, so naturally I love gardening, landscaping and anything that allows me to get my hands in the soil. I also enjoy being with my family, spending time outdoors, and making — or attempting — Pinterest crafts. I also make a pretty elaborate dog shadow puppet.
