Why I chose K-State:

The research opportunities are incredibly exciting! People at K-State and in the community are friendly and welcoming, and, very importantly, you will always find someone here who is willing to help during hard times. Choosing K-State is one of my best decisions!

What I enjoy about Manhattan, KS

Manhattan is not a very busy town and has a lot of greenery. Living in a college town makes my graduate student life much easier. For example, it only takes few minutes to walk from my on-campus housing apartment to my lab!
