Rhatigan Student Center

The Rhatigan Student Center is the social hub of student life at Wichita State University. Located in the heart of the main campus, the center's dynamic slate of events and services keep the WSU community humming. Whether you're looking for a place to study, a place to hang out with friends, a place to eat, a place to shop, a place to relax -- or even a place to get a quick haircut -- the RSC is the place to be.

The mission of the Rhatigan Student Center is to be a diverse composition of people, services, programs and facilities that enrich the intellectual, cultural and social well-being of the WSU student and supports the University’s mission to serve the greater public good.
