Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

The best part about my time at Kansas State is working with the faculty, staff, and fellow grad students. I've had opportunities to work on varying research projects and learn the fundamentals of conducting meaningful high quality research. My advisor's seem to really care not just about my success in research and school, but my future career and all around happiness. I feel I have been privileged to work with the such impressive knowledgeable people while at Kansas State.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015

This program is super supportive with professors who really care about graduates and are experts in their fields. The program is especially distinguished by its children's lit and cultural studies tracks. Most also get full tuition and a stipend as a grad teaching assistant. I love it!

At K-State, you get what is expected. It's not Harvard or MIT, but it is a great college in a good college town. The faculty are smart and hard working, but what sets them apart are willingness to help. K-State people are incredibly nice. It's called the K-State family because of that - everyone treats you like family.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2009

I am satisfied with the MA in Political Science program. There are many scholarships and assistantships available to help with the cost of tuition and housing. The professors are easy to talk to and willing to help. This program is preparing me for my career. I would recommend applying to this program.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros of the graduate program at Kansas State University is the networking opportunity both on and off campus. The departments in the College of Agriculture very willingly work together. Cons of the graduate program are the number of classes that are taken online instead of in the classroom. Half of your classes are online and I excepted more classroom interaction.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is getting better with the vision of K-State 2025, the goal for K-State to become a Top 50 research university by 2025. More money is being dedicated to research and more attempts are being made to bring in high quality faculty and graduate students. Money is being spent to upgrade and build new facilities. Campus is beautiful and safe, good relations with the community, plenty of activities to participate in, very student success focused. There are some cons though, graduate stipends aren't great and housing can be a bit expensive, plus Manhattan is in the middle of nowhere.

The Associate Director for Graduate Studies is unfortunate as she is disorganized and lacks respect for graduate students' time and money. The disorganization seems to bleed into other aspects of the graduate program, such as letting students know about unwritten expectations for thesis requirements. Graduate Teaching Assistants tend to be overworked and are discouraged from saying "no." I even heard about one graduate student who was told that sleep deprivation was an important part of the grad student experience by a professor. However, the rest of the faculty and staff are wonderful to work with and the curriculum is important and fun to learn. I especially appreciate the feeling of collegiality; I can talk, debate, and even discuss new research ideas with professors and other graduate students.

Faculty are great. It is first name basis and more like a peer relationship!
