Wichita Colleges and Universities

Students of Wichita colleges and universities enjoy a range of extracurricular activities in Kansas' largest city. Wichita was ranked as one of the Top 10 places to live in 2006, according to CNN/Money Magazine, due partially to a large number of educational opportunities and a high median family income. On the weekend, students can be found unwinding in Wichita's nightclubs, enjoying live music at Barleycorn's, and retro dancing at Flashbacks.

Wichita colleges and universities offer public and private education options in a range of degree fields. Wichita State University is the city's largest college, boasting a fall 2007 enrollment of 15,000 students, and offering 60 undergraduate degree programs.
