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!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my Professors so far and the class sizes are smaller than I expected. I'm pursuing studying abroad next year and they are extremely supportive.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm required to spend one semester in an Internship Program with my Degree and the college assists you in placing you in an Internship of interest to me.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The Campus is Well Lit and is very safe to walk around. The Campus police are very visible and do their very best to provide a safe environment and protect our community.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm living in the SAE Fraternity house as a Freshman and could not have picked a better Fraternity. I enjoy spending time with my brothers and reaching out to help the community. I always believe that an individual should be giving and that was part of my selection process. The Greek Life at KU is big but includes everyone.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I was previously the Captain of the Varsity Football Team at my High School. I am one of the most competitive people that you could ever meet. I consider this a large part of my college experience and feel very satisfied with my college selection.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Love the SAE house that I just pledged to this summer.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Professors are experts and seem interested in what they are teaching. Some are better than others at providing opportunities to work with the students.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: A school this size has many students interested in internships so it can be competitive but many are available.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: There are dark places on campus and I hear stories of parties that lead to unwanted sexual contact but that happens without preparing.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Dorm life is remote and not much near the halls. People are the best thing about living on campus.

5 College Student

Athletics: The basketball team is insane. Huge blast to get involved spectating and even going to the gym is easy and clean.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: KU is a very large school but has many opportunities to get involved. Classes can run big but great overall in discussions and engagement.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have loved most every class I have taken and had amazing experiences learning.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The alumni network is amazing! Also KU is seen as a great school to have a degree from.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus, but know to be careful.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Student housing was a great way to make friends and also a way to get a job through the school.

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.
