Many from small towns in Kansas experiencing the "big city" for the first time, tons of international students due to the highly rated engineering programs and relatively cheaper tuition/easy admissions, students transferring from community colleges

Rated January 2016

More Non traditional, older students. Not a sports oriented campus.

Rated January 2016
Alumni
Criminal Justice, Class of 2001

Diverse, being that it is in the largest city in Kansas. I would also say that the student body is what I would consider to be generally older or non traditional as well.
