International Students Study in Kansas

Posted on August 30th, 2011 by Jenny Frankel

In the spirit of exploration (perhaps the same spirit embodied by the pioneers and cowboys of the past) thousands of international students come to study in Kansas and receive a higher education every year. International students in Kansas have the unique opportunity to experience and explore the Midwestern American lifestyle and culture. During the time of the Wild West, Kansas was home to thousands of Native Americans, cowboys, and pioneers. Many museums and historical sites are dedicated to providing easy and affordable access to the state’s fascinating history. Kansas Museum of History, is a great example of one of these museums. International students in Kansas receive great student discount rates at many of the museums and only have to pay a $4 entrance fee to visit the famous Kansas Museum of History. The museum itself is considered one of the “8 Wonders of Kansas” because it features original locomotives, Native American tipis, immigrant wagons, a real log cabin, and a stage coach preserved from the Wild Western time period.

Aside from the historical and cultural learning opportunities within the state, the location of Kansas in relation to the rest of the U.S. gives students the ability to easily explore surrounding regions. Kansas is what some would consider in the dead center of the country, meaning that to see all sides of the U.S., one would simply have to hop on a short bus or plane ride for a few hours. Kansas really is an ideal location for international students who wants to explore the rest of the country without having to travel long hours and pay more money to go farther distances; Jefferson Bus Lines, MegaBus, and Frontier Airlines offer affordable travel options for individuals located in the Midwest (some state to state bus fares for as cheap as $15 and round trip flights under $100).

By choosing to study in Kansas, students have some of America’s most interesting historical sites and landmarks within their reach. The era of the cowboys and Wild West are fascinating aspects of American history and culture and remnants of these times are unique to the Midwestern states. International students in Kansas are also in an ideal location for exploring the rest of the country though affordable bus routes and airlines. If you think of yourself as an adventurer and want to explore different regions of the U.S. consider studying in Kansas, you may find that you feel right at home with that pioneering attitude and cowboy confidence.

    Hello International students blog, I’m 21yr old boy who has completed a three year course in Electrical Engineering after my high school programme. I have much interest in Robotic Engineering field and in addition to the knowledge i have in the Electrical field, i have been able to build my own homemade robot using components from dumped electronic devices or systems. I really have the photo of that robot which can prove what am saying. My goal is to study in any institution in the US that offers Electronic or Robotic Engineering as a course because i really love these fields but the problem now is the finance to take me through the traveling and the studies process. In Ghana, where nobody requires robotic or electronic Engineers in their service, its very difficult to obtain an aid from people or cooperative bodies who can send you to the US to study such a programme. I really need help and want to start schooling again. Thank you very much and hope to hear from you. +233241873409…

    Nothing sleazy, there will be older women there. I think satin slippers. If you can find them on sale, maybe a pair in several colors, put in a pretty hatbox for her closet. Also, pretty scented drawer and shelf liner paper. Go for different beautiful things.
