Lawrence is cute and fun little college town. Midwestern hospitality is definitely seen here which makes it feel more like home. Professors are always willing to help you any way they can

I have enjoyed my time at KU. I wish it was not so cliquey with the greek life and more engaging so that you had more opportunities to make friends
