Wichita: Not your typical college town

In Kansas, Wichita is at the center of everything. As the state’s largest city — with a population of more than 680,000 — Wichita is the commercial, financial, medical, cultural and entertainment hub for the state and a major player in the region.

That level of activity can make living in a run-of-the-mill college town seem a little unfulfilling. From huge annual festivals and serene nature preserves to world-class dining and a thriving arts scene, in Wichita you can have it all. Combine that with endless opportunities for experiential learning and creative collisions with entrepreneurs, dreamers and experts from all disciplines who are working for positive change in the world and it’s clear: Wichita is a virtual utopia for the aspiring college student.
