Wichita – The City
Welcome to Wichita, the home of the Shockers! There are many ways to get to Wichita, like on I-35, and I-135, with I-235 bypassing the city. US-54 & 400, aka Kellogg, is a main west to east road that travels through both ends of town. 

American Athletic Conference
Let me talk more about sports because I know the university more for this. It is just from my own experience. On a very special occasion, they get to play against Kansas or K-State. These teams don’t play with Wichita State often because they aren’t in the same conference. The other two universities are in the Big 12, while WSU just recently moved from the Missouri Valley Conference to the American Athletic Conference. 

They aren’t talked about in the football season because unfortunately, they have no football team. Years ago, they had a bad plane accident so severe everyone traveling perished. The university decided it would be too sad to replace them so they didn’t bother finding a new team. Their basketball team, however, is something shocker fans are proud of. They made it to the Final Four in 2013 as a lower seed in the bracket, beating higher ranked teams on their way. Their best upset was against UConn, the top team in their region.

WSU Campus Location
This university isn’t known for just sports. It has way more to offer you. Feel free to see it in person located north of 17th Street, east of Hillside Street, south of 21st Street, and west of Perimeter Road. Want to learn more about the university online? Learn more here.
