Our College Location In Wichita, Kansas
Friends University’s main campus is located in Wichita, Kansas. The beautiful, park-like expansive campus exists in a quiet residential community. The historic and architecturally distinctive Davis Administration Building is the focal point of our wooded campus that features well-maintained buildings and beautiful landscaping. Our students value the small-town community feeling on our campus, but also enjoy going to college in Wichita — Kansas’ largest city.
Not only has Wichita been named an All-American City four times since 1962, it also ranked among the top 32 cities nationally for quality of life. In fact, Money magazine recently named the Wichita community a Top 10 Best Place to live (right above New York City). If you’re looking for undergraduate or graduate programs in Kansas, these rankings communicate affordability, short and easy commutes to work and a high level of public safety for your family — attributes you simply can’t find in most metro areas. Wichita’s diverse business community truly prizes and encourages entrepreneurship and innovation — values confirmed by companies like Pizza Hut and Coleman Companies, which got their start right here in the middle of the heartland.
