Wichita State University

Wichita State University is located in the heart of the Midwest in the state of Kansas. Our 330-acre campus is situated on the crest of a hill with a view of downtown Wichita. WSU has a long tradition of innovation and entrepreneurship that spurs the economy and serves the needs of the local community. Year round, there's so much to do on the Wichita State campus -- from music, theater and dance performances to world-class museums to the heart-pounding excitement of Shocker athletics.
