Overview

Wichita State University (WSU) is a public-funded research university in Wichita, Kansas, United States, founded in 1895. It is the third largest university governed by the Kansas Board of Regents. With an enrollment of more than 14,000, the population comprises of students from every nook and corner of the United States and 110 foreign countries. Eighty-seven percent are from Kansas, representing nearly all counties in the state. WSU students and athletic teams are called the Shockers because Wichita students used to earn money by harvesting or "shocking" wheat. At one point of time, the university also used to be called WU, for Wichita University, and now the school's mascot is a bundle of wheat named WuShock. Besides athletics, WSU students also have the opportunity to get involved in over 200 campus organizations
