School Details

When Wichita State first opened its doors in 1895 students rode horses to class, telegraph machines were cutting-edge technology, and Wichita had only been a city for roughly 25 years. The past century has featured a remarkable evolution for Wichita State, one in which the school has grown from a small Christian college to a large state university. Today, the university continues to change to reflect the world around it, finding new ways to keep future generations of Shockers one step ahead of the competition.
