Kansas is centrally located in the US heartland, Kansas provides many examples of small-town America.

Students studying in Kansas can experience life on the prairie, where the American bison still dwell, while engaging in a wide variety of educational offerings.

Kansas is known as the "Sunflower State," Kansas became the 34th state in 1861. Kansas' state's name comes from the Kansa or Kaw Indians and is a Sioux Indian term meaning "south wind people."
