5 College Freshman

Campus Food: I think that it is amazing. Some unhealthy but still very good

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It depends on where on campus you live. Some places are rough but the new dorms will fit in perfect.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many different off campus housing options and the availability is pretty high too. Almost all options are pretty close to campus or campus transportation. Some areas of Lawrence are safer than others.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of off campus dining options that very from type of food and cost. Dining in Lawrence is always a new experience.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Campus is not very strict about a lot of things except drug and alcohol use in the dorms. They take that pretty seriously.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The bar scene on campus is great. There is always something going on and a ton of great promotions.

Scholarships: Although tuition is expensive for out of state students, I received the financial aid I needed and the process was very easy.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Some days are better than others. I enjoy the salad bar at Mrs. E's, however I wish there were more poultry and fish options and more low calorie options.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorm I live in is not located very close to my classes. The cost is somewhat expensive for the quality of living. There is constant noise because of neighbors next to and above me. My dorm is in close proximity to the cafeteria so that is beneficial. The people that work at the front desk are always nice and very helpful.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: You do what you have to do. I live in the dorm (thus cooking is "prohibited"). So I must eat on campus sometime. Breakfast is the best meal (hare to screw up scrambled eggs). Lunch options abound on campus to include Chick-Fil-A. Dinner can be a crap shoot. But, if there is nothing good in Mrs. E's, there is always pizza.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are ok. We have dumb rules around when heat and A/C can be turned on so it seems one is always hot or cold. I do like my room- I have a single. No roommate fights. If I want company I can always hang out with someone. The room is fairly Spartan, but since I am out about anyway (usually in a practice room), it's ok. The food is ok. If you do not like cafeteria food, there are plenty of other options on and off campus.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived off campus

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It is good most places are chains or are kind of $

4 College Freshman

Administration: The school has a great balance

College Freshman

Party Scene: I do not really party I just know where people go

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There is an automatic academic scholarship

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The options are endless but most of the dining halls have extremely processed food and most of it is not healthy.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: KU is an open, friendly, and accepting social and campus. I would not want to live anywhere else. The different dorms are like their own little communities yet they are not exclusive.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: So many awesome houses surround campus and nice apartments. A lot of unique places because the campus is surrounded by all these old Victorian homes that are taken over by drunk college students. Prices are usually reasonable depending on how much you look, more expensive the closer you get to campus and the less roommates you have

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Huge variety of places to choose from, all conveniently on Mass and throughout Lawrence. A lot of places deliver and offer student discounts. A lot of trademark Lawrence places and local dining.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Average strictness, cheating is usually hard to get away with depending on the teacher, alcohol is easy to get away with as long as you are discreet about it in the dorms. Mostly the students are responsible enough to the point where not a huge amount of security is needed

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: KU is a party school. Some people can't handle it. But for those that can, there is something happening every night of the week. Especially during basketball season. It's crazy but so much fun.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: KU hardly gives financial aid. I applied and was only offered loans. My roommate that received a grant is having a hard time communicating with the school about attending a community school and transferring back to KU and is being told she has to start paying her loans now. Most people don't even apply if they don't live in a very low income household.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining hall options are okay - but definitely gets old.

Food on campus - there is a huge selection and its all pretty good, crunchy chicken cheddar wraps are the most popular.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms - most all freshmen live in dorms, and eventually move out as sophomores. Rules are generally enforced but easy to get around if you are discreet about drinking. The more expensive dorms are really nice and the cheaper ones are much less. There's a pretty big gap between the two. Dining plans are okay, food is okay but gets old after awhile. Socially, dorms are a great way to meet people and most people meet their group of friends through the dorms.

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.
