Wichita State University is planning on cutting $1.5 million from different departments to pay for a new business school.

The plan comes after students in March rejected a plan to raise student fees by $6 per credit hour to pay for the building and other projects.

It’s easy to complain about air travel, but the latest Airline Quality Rating study shows, overall, it’s getting better for passengers.

Two Wichita State University student organizations will host the Dream Run on Saturday – a two-mile run that organizers hope will generate scholarship money for undocumented students.

The event is co-hosted by the Student Organization of Social Work and the Rho Beta Chapter of Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity Incorporated.

The goal is to double the money in a scholarship fund for Dreamers provided by Sigma Lambda Beta and the Student Government Association.

Jon Hu stepped away from Wichita State University’s engineering career fair with beads of sweat forming on his face.

Students and the employers who might offer them jobs had crammed into a university ballroom. Most were donned — and overheating — in suits in the crowded room.

“I’ve been wearing this suit for about five hours,” Hu said. “So, yeah. It’s very, very hot in this.”

Canvas art, African artifacts and black history backpacks will be part of the African-American art show that opens Friday night at Wichita State University.

Danielle Johnson, assistant director of WSU's Office of Diversity and Inclusion, says the "Art That Touches Your Heart" art show, in its eighth year, began as a partnership with Wichita artist Janice Thacker.

"It provides a way for the university and the community to partner and celebrate black art together," Johnson says.
