Administration: I think that the strictness at KU is in the perfect amount. They are rather strict on things like drinking and drug use in dorms, but things like protests and social movements they are very lenient and accepting about.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not apply for scholarships or aid this year for the University of Kansas.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I do not believe the purpose of college is to get drunk on the weekends. That being said, I do not, nor will I ever attend a party around campus that involves drinking or drugs, which almost all of them do. I prefer to spend my free evenings with a few close friends, some good food and conversation, and a movie.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dorm food isn't the best. It's usually very processed, and very limited in selection. There are VERY little vegetarian options, and I usually end up having to eat only salad and soup for 2 meals a day, which gets very old very fast. The underground and the Union are probably the best places for on campus food, and the Pulse/The Roasterie are the best (and really only) options for things like smoothies and coffee on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have enjoyed living on campus for the most part. There is a lot of drinking that happens off campus by the students who live in the same floor as me, so there is often disruptions during the middle of the night. The campus atmosphere is absolutely centered around Jayhawk Basketball, and with good cause. The cost for in state is reasonable, and I think you get for what you pay for. The food in the dorms is not always the best, but it is worth paying for. The housing process itself is rather simple and stress-free, at least in my experience.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is a good option. There are tons of different houses and apartment complexes to choose from, and the cost is definitely cheaper than on-campus living. However, everywhere is pretty far away from campus, so be prepared to drive.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Parking sucks on campus. If you live in the dorm, good luck ever finding parking. Also, all the lots are really far away from classes, so plan on walking a lot.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining hall food is not great, although there are plenty of choices. The food at the unions, though, is really good. Crunchy chicken cheddar all the way!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Depending on the dorm, most campus housing is good. They are also building two brand new dorms this year, so those should be nice.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I do not receive any aid. I am all on student loans but in terms of aid that I do not have to pay back, I do not get help. I did not get enough loan money to cover my tuition, which in turn forced me to give up some classes I wanted to take or was hoping to, as well as some activities I wanted to do.

Overall Experience: I love being closer to home to see my family while still enjoying my college experience. Having my close friends here and being able to join various clubs makes things much better. Professors of the Business School here are definitely helpful as well, they have made my semester a great one, and it has just begun.

Athletics: Our Basketball team is one of the top teams in the nation. It is an amazing atmosphere at Allen Field House. I love watching our Baseball Boys as well, and Football gives a nice tailgating environment. Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: We have the underground, which gives a small amount of choices such as Chick-Fil-A, salad bars, etc. Not a big variety and of course prices will be much more but it's enough to get you by whenever you need.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
