Kansas State University is located in Manhattan, KS in the rolling Flint Hills approximately 100 miles west of Kansas City. Manhattan has a population of 52,000 residents and student enrollment at KSU is more than 23,000 students. The surrounding area offers excellent opportunities for outdoor activities such as camping, boating, hunting, fishing, hiking and biking. Primarily because of the university’s influence, cultural and sporting events are at a level of frequency and quality unheard of by most cities this size. Further, Manhattan offers affordable housing, extremely strong elementary, middle, and high school programs, and a crime rate one-half the national average. In short, Manhattan offers a variety of urban amenities yet retains the best qualities of a small university town. For more information, visit our Web site: http://www.cba.ksu.edu/marketing.
