1. What first drew you to Kansas State University?
The first time I visited Kansas State University, I knew it was the college for me. K-State is about an hour and fifteen minutes from my house which is not too close to home but far enough away that I have a chance to really be independent. Everyone around campus was so nice and eager to help me with whatever I needed. I felt a very positive energy. I also loved how the campus was compact; everything was in a reasonable walking distance. It seemed easy to get around.
2. What other colleges were you considering?
I looked at the University of Kansas, Central Missouri State University, Pittsburg State University, and Creighton.
3. What clubs or groups do you plan on getting involved in?
I plan on rushing and being a part of Greek Life, which will give me a lot of opportunities to be a part of community service groups. I would also like to look into being a part of a religious group on campus.
4. What are you looking forward to most about college?
I am most excited for a fresh start. I am also looking forward to being a part of Greek Life and having the opportunity to meet so many new people. The whole idea of college seems pretty exciting to me- I can’t wait to have more freedom and independence. Lastly, I am most definitely looking forward to all of the extracurricular things that come with college such as football games, basketball games, and campus events!
