The main thing I like and WSU that you can meet a lot of people from different parts of the world in one small city in the United States. Another thing I like about Wichita State is the job opportunities you can have. I was able to find 3 on-campus jobs during my freshman and sophomore years. Almost everyone I meet in Wichita is nice and helpful. There are lots of people who make me think this is my home away from home.
