Why Polytechnic is Perfect For You
You Will Learn By Doing
On the polytechnic campus, your experience matters! That’s why learning isn’t confined to a textbook and classroom. We emphasize applied discipline, so our programs encompass lab time, in-the-field education, competitions, internships and business connections. With this hands-on approach, you are given valuable opportunities that will prepare you for your future career and help you stand out among the competition.
As a Wildcat, You Are Family
At Kansas State Polytechnic, you are not just a number – you are family. Our small campus atmosphere encourages students to build friendships quickly. Professors know you by name and care about helping you with any aspect of your college life. And there are multiple activities on our campus and even the Manhattan campus, such as sporting events, that ignite your purple pride and bond your family ties even stronger.
Designated as a Military Friendly School
Valuing the sacrifice and service of our country’s veterans has always been a part of Kansas State Polytechnic’s heritage. Before the campus became an educational institution, it was an Air Force base, and we carry on that tradition by being home to the Student Veterans Association; supplying veteran assistance through our Student Support Services department; and offering help with navigating GI Bill benefits. These factors as well as our large military population on campus have earned us the Military Friendly distinction.
