In multiple national publications, Kansas State is ranked as one of the top universities in the country, according to K-State’s Department of Communications and Marketing.
“The Best 384 Colleges,” a survey of over 135,000 college students completed by the Princeton Review, lists K-State as the number four school for “Best Quality of Life” and number eight for “Happiest Students.” Additionally, the survey listed K-State as number six in “Best Athletic Facilities” and number seven “Best Health Services.”
In SmartAsset’s 2018, “Best College Value” report released in May, K-State was listed as highest in the state of Kansas for the fourth consecutive year. The site, which factors in a plethora of variables to make its rating, also provides information on the average starting salary of graduates from 10 schools in the state. The average starting salary for a K-State graduate is reportedly $50,000, which is higher than the national average as reported by Money Magazine in May 2017.
Money Magazine also listed K-State as the highest education value in the state and as number 301 in the country in their 2018 rankings. K-State boasts of its top ranking for the third chronological year in a row.
