The university is home to about 450 student organizations, Big 12 athletics, and top-tier research facilities. Wildcats find what they need on campus — from the rec complex to the libraries to nationally known speakers and performers — and in the community, which offers outdoor recreation, shopping, nightlife, and a healthy dose of purple pride. Undergraduates interested in research work side-by-side in the labs with some of the world's best scientists. As the research hub for world renowned scientists in animal health and food safety, K-Staters work daily to impact the world and make it better.
The K-State community, where everyone is a Wildcat
K-State's main campus in Manhattan is nestled in the Flint Hills where students enjoy a small-town atmosphere with big city amenities. K-State also has campuses in Salina and Olathe. On campus, students take advantage of part-time campus jobs and internships to prepare them for their future careers. In their spare time, students attend Big 12 athletic events, music, dance and theater performances, as well as student and professional gallery displays. For serious study times, students have a choice of several K-State libraries or can cozy up to the fire while studying in the Union or the Alumni Center. Get physical working out at the Peters Recreation Complex, play intramural sports, bowl in the Union or go for a run on campus. When students are ready to expand their horizons with study abroad, K-State offers more than 70 countries to go to through K-State's study abroad program. To help with the adjustment students have living away from home and learning to use their time effectively to achieve all their goals, the Office of Student Life provides caring services that help each student feel supported in the university environment. K-State is known for its personal touch and family environment.
