Despite its large size, Kansas State University “still has a small-town, welcoming feeling” and “a family atmosphere that the whole university buys into.” With such a strong focus on community, students say that “you’ll usually be only a few degrees of separation from any other person.” The long history of K-State (students wear purple all the time, since “there’s a lot of Wildcat pride across campus”) is “something that you can’t get anywhere else.” Some facilities “could receive a boost,” though, as “there are a lot of great buildings on campus, but there are some classrooms that need an update.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
