Mechanical engineering major from New Jersey

Residence hall life

My favorite thing about living in the residence halls is having my friends right down the hallway. I usually keep my door open so my friends can come in and talk. If I need to vent about something, it is nice to have them there. The different floor activities also are great because they let us grow as a community. I’ve met so many more people than I would have met off campus by living in the residence halls.

K-State pride

The pride K-State has brings everyone closer. K-State is my home away from home, and my friends here are my second family. We all have so much love for this university, and we want to do everything we can to make it the best it can be. I love showing prospective students how much pride I have for K-State.

Coming to Manhattan from New Jersey

Coming here from New Jersey, I felt like I was taking a risk, but it was the best decision I’ve made. Even though it might be nerve racking going to an unfamiliar place, take the chance with K-State. It is worth moving all of my stuff 22 hours every year because I know how much fun I have here.

K-State family

Being a part of the K-State family means that no matter what, I’m going to help out a fellow Wildcat. Whether I’m back home in New Jersey or walking around campus, I’m going to be there no matter what. I just want to show everyone how great of a school K-State is and that I will bleed purple for the rest of my life.

Choosing K-State

I was accepted to all of the schools I applied to, so I already had a tough decision. I wanted to go to a big school with a good engineering program. One of my teachers from high school had attended K-State and told me how great of an atmosphere it was. I knew K-State had the atmosphere I wanted when I went to a football game. That atmosphere, plus the engineering program, told me K-State would be a great fit. Once you step on K-State’s campus you feel at home and welcomed.
