Sophomore in industrial engineering (pdf)

Kansas City, Kansas

“Being on campus, you get the sense that all the activity is student driven— the administration takes time to listen. K-State really is for everyone.”


Student Governing Association intern coordinator, College of Engineering senator, Greek life, College of Engineering ambassador and campus tour guide

Family tradition

My parents are both K-State alums, so K-State was on my radar, but I didn't want to go to my "parent's school." I tried to break from the mold, but everything I wanted was here. My first visit, I fell in love. It wasn't just my parent's school; it was my school.

Best of both worlds

I initially loved marketing, but I also knew engineering would be a great fit for me. It's just how my brain works. I talked to an engineering ambassador who helped me find ways to combine my interest in business with my engineering major. There are so many different options; you don't have to pick just one.

The big picture

You can get an education anywhere, but K-State stands out because it's so much more than what goes on in the classroom. It's career preparation, internships, involvement—whatever you want. It's a small-town atmosphere with all the benefits of a big school.
