College Junior

Greek Life: I wouldn't say I can really rate the Greek life as I'm not a part of it but while they can be incredibly annoying and unbearable I'm sure somewhere sometimes they do great things for someone.

3 College Junior

Majors: Since I'm pre nursing its really just taking all the pre requisites for my major but its been fairly easy to get in to all the classes that I need for it.

4 College Junior

Majors: My program is fine, you get to meet a lot of people with the same major as you and that's always helpful.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I love being here now as a student but am not entirely sure I would want to stay on much past that. Not that Lawrence isn't fun, I just think would want a new chapter in my life.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The only time I can recall ever having sexual assault being brought up, every single person was notified through our school emails and so on so we all knew exactly what to be on the lookout for. Very helpful.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Again, if you can't find it, you aren't looking. When in Lawrence I can almost always find not only what I want to eat, but find it available when I want to eat it as well.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: While I was annoyed with the blatant lack of aid that I received, I made an appointment with an advisor and after her helping me am now working on filling out the paper work I need to to be able to hopefully get the aid I'm looking for.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I would say again that there is such a variety that if you don't find somewhere that you enjoy living, you really probably just didn't look.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: There really is always something going on in Lawrence, and we really do have such a wide variety of bars and things that there really is no reason to not be able to find some place you enjoy, unless you just seriously aren't looking.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I would say that the level of strictness they enforce the rules with is right on, it sounds like it is comparable to the other schools around but isn't super ridiculously strict.

5 College Junior

Athletics: I don't know any other school, at least not locally, that has the kind of pride for their basketball team that KU does. It's incredible and honestly moving to be in Allen field house during a game.

5 College Junior

Campus Dining: We have such a wide variety of food options I would be genuinely surprised if someone couldn't find a single thing that they wanted.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I had a couple fairly close minded professors but that's how people are in any place, a couple will be. Overall, I love it here.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I needing help figuring out what to do after the nursing school I applied to said my ACT score of 28 was expired and id have to retake it, and my KU advisor helped me find a major that overlapped with what I've been taking for pre nursing but also is its own major so I have something to show for all the school I've finished and maybe then with a major, I'll go pre med instead.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am just getting more into my major this year. I am enrolled in more classes specifically for my major and am very excited about it.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I feel that the school is just trying to keep everyone safe, even though some people may feel that they are ruining the fun.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone has their own style and personality.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Honestly, my parents helped a lot to take care of the process.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There is always something going on in Lawrence, Kansas! Whether it's a party or a bar, students always come out to have a great time. The Hawk is especially popular on Wednesdays, also known as dollar night.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I love my school and campus. I feel that there is always a lot to do and everything is very safe. I have made a great amount of friends and memories.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The University of Kansas has a great amount of school spirit. Going to sporting events are a great experience. I am definitely proud to be a Jayhawk!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. I have never had any threatening incidents and neither have any of the close circle of friends.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoyed all of my classes and most of my professors. Overall, I have had a great experience at the University of Kansas.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Personally, I haven't looked much into this topic. I do believe there is a great affiliation though.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a great diversity on campus. I feel that everyone can connect.

The majority of students at the University of Kansas only have positive things to say about the college. Students have the opportunity to get a quality education at a fairly cheap price, which is something that not a lot of schools can boast. The community around Lawrence offers all of the important features of a great college town. There is entertainment, nightlife, and fine dining seemingly around every corner. You’ll have no problem finding everything you’ll need for four years of good living. Aside from some minor complaints, it’s safe to say that many students would be in favor of spending four more years at KU.

The combination of receiving a quality education and experiencing the freedom and exhiliration of college life makes students feel happy, and more importantly, at home at KU. The University also has a long-standing tradition that dates back to the 1860s, which makes you feel like you’re a part of something bigger than just your own educational advancement. Lawrence is a tight-knit community, and you’ll experience many Midwestern personalities on a daily basis, which can have its good and bad sides. Outside of Kansas, most people do not realize that KU is a great univeristy in a great college town. You will leave here a better person than when you came in—and you’ll have so many people to thank for it.
