Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The School Counseling program has some great benefits like being able to transfer the final in school internship to another state for any reason. Classes are located both on and off campus to allow for students to continue to support themselves financial but still allow for a great learning experience. Faculty is easy to get a hold of and will answer any question you have. The program offers each student a chance to chose what is the best classes for them during the particular semester.

Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Great program, with special interests in exotics, beef cattle (esp. feedlot), and epidemiology. Less equine focus. No tracking. Less hands-on training than a lot of schools before hitting clinics. Great faculty + large animal hospital good for shadowing, but small animal hospital less amenable to shadowing. Cost of program vs value is a challenge. Try to get residency status first.

There are many opportunities to expand your course work into other areas outside of your specific field of interest.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2012

Kansas State University has an excellent Political Science program. The professors truly love what they do and it shows. They are extremely knowledgeable, so much so that many, if not all, are published in some capacity. The political science department is definitely in the pro category of KSU. I don't have any cons as I have nothing negative to say about KSU. My department did a wonderful job educating me and if I had to do it all over again, I would still select Kansas State University's political science graduate program.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

There are a lot of opportunities available that help with many aspects of being a graduate student. We go to several conferences, grant writing opportunities, etc. There is alot of work involved and at some times it can be very overwhelming, but for the most part the people you work with and are around are there to support and help you through!

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I'm in the K-State graduate program for Academic Advising. This is a high quality distance education experience using technology and the latest and greatest research on this new field of teaching and learning. I would recommend to anyone who is interested in academic advising in higher education.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Kansas State University's Regional and Community Planning program is a part of the top ranked College of Architecture, Planning and Design. Planning students get to interact with Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Interior Architecture students and faculty.They also have the opportunity to take classes outside the college. You get a very interdisciplinary education and that is what the urban planning industry is like. You will have all the needed skills to fit into a traditional planning job, non profit, regional planning agencies etc. There is still the learning curve once you get on the job, but you have developed to the skills to learn fast. The skills you learn are very transferable and you can use them in a variety of industries. With the college having such established programs, the alumni network is extensive making it possible to make professional connections which help students get internships and jobs. The faculty and staff are great and supportive, you will always find assistance and guidance. There will always be someone to turn too. You will also make great friends within this college. The programs are smaller than most and you form great friendships with your peers. The only con would be the location... Although the K-State is located in a great and fun college town (Manhattan, KS), it is a two hour drive to Kansas City, where there are lot more internship, job opportunities and resources. So it can be hard to make connections, but that is why the large alumni network comes in handy.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The M.S. in Family Studies program is offered completely online and it allows for the opportunity to network amongst four other institutions. The drawback to this program is having to utilize a different blackboard website for each university and some professors expect the same access to books by other institutions as their own.
