Studying at the K-State Olathe Campus

Why I chose K-State:

K-State is recognized as a warm and welcoming place to pursue graduate studies, especially for international students. Also, the dynamic and expert team of faculty and sophisticated research facilities contributed to my decision to join K-State.

My experience as an online and Olathe Campus student

The K-State Olathe campus has a contemporary research facility equipped with cutting-edge research technology. The relationship with advisors, lab mates, faculty, and staff is very intimate as we are like a family. The campus is in the vicinity of the Kansas City metro and therefore is accessible to several professional and personal growth opportunities.
