3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school is prideful on their alumni having some come speak to the class about their experience and how they got the job they worked hard for to achieve. Most corporate businesses have a KU alumni which helps students.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: With having one of the best basketball programs in division one college sports it plays a huge part in the school spirit around campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I truly love my university there is nothing in the world that could compare to the experience i received with hanging out with the most outstanding people to being taught by the most helpful and experience professors.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have never had a professor I did not love. All of the professors are very passionate about what they do and only want to see their students succeed. All of my classes were under 200 students. The professors will do anything to help you.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors will go above and beyond to help you find a job/intern. KU is very big on their alumni and bring them into classes and workshops to have students talk to.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It is a big campus so everyone should be aware of their surroundings. KU has many safe programs to make students feel safe on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in the brand new dorm, so dorm life was great. I wished that the floors would have been more of a family like instead of staying to themselves. I think a good RA could have helped a lot with that. It is a walk from campus but a very nice location.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is a large part of campus. Almost all sororities and fraternities have houses on campus. Non-Greek members only support Greek life on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I see student athletes in class every day. They are not treated any different in the classroom. Of course, they are praised by the students around campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Even though it is a massive school, I feel like a big family with students and staff.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Pretty much if you're not a basketball player, don't expect anyone to know who you are. Everyone loves to go to the football games for the first half even though we lost every game this past season. And of course there's absolutely nothing like going to a KU basketball game.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I could not imagine going to any other school. Even though it's quite expensive compared to some of the other schools around but every school is pretty pricey. I love the scholarship halls on campus, that really cuts down costs while still having the opportunities of living on campus!

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.
