MANHATTAN — Kansas State University is a top college with happy students according to two of the latest educational review publications.
The Princeton Review ranks Kansas State University No. 4 for happiest students, No. 5 for students love these colleges, No. 5 for best-run colleges and No. 6 for best quality of life in the 2016 edition of "The Best 380 Colleges."
"These four Top 10 national rankings help define the character of the K-State family," said Pat Bosco, the university's vice president for student life and dean of students. "This kind of recognition year after year reflects a culture that is a direct result of K-State's excellent faculty, academic advising and student life support. It is wonderful to be recognized and celebrated for traits that we think are everywhere — but are obviously unique to the K-State way of life."
The Princeton Review, an education services company, surveyed more than 135,000 college students to rank schools in 62 categories. The book identifies the top 20 schools in each category.
Kansas State University also is mentioned in "America's Top Colleges" by Forbes, which names 650 of the nation's best educational institutions based on student satisfaction, postgraduation success, student debt, graduation rate and academic success.
