Athletics: Athletics are huge at KU, especially the basketball team. There is tons of school pride that comes from it.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love KU. There is a very diverse community there and tons of learning opportunities. I can't even imagine being anywhere else at this point in time.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: On campus me and my friends feel very safe during the day and night, police are always going around making sure everything is good.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The courses are okay they all differ depending on what you are studying.The teaches are very good they are willing to help you out whenever you need it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The career prospects look good from what I have seen and heard around from people on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: While living in the dorms can be a hassle its one the best things that can happen to you, you make so many great friends while living in the dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: While greek life is big on campus, most people really down care what fraternity or sorority you are in everyone is okay with all the greeks.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Although KU football isn't the best, it doesn't matter sense we have KU basketball and volleyball two of the best teams in the nation.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience so far has super awesome I didn't think that I would like my school so much. Definitely would tell my friends to apply and com to KU!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I never have class late at night, most of my classes are out by 7pm, so when I leave it's still daylight. I can't say that I have ever felt unsafe though, as there are safety and security measures taken that are easily accessible on campus. I also have the security office phone number in my phone and protective measure on my person, like key chain mace, if I ever find myself in an unfortunate situation. I think there is only so much a campus can do, and you need to be aware of your surroundings as well to make sure you keep yourself as safe as is possible.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm still relatively new, so I can't really speak for the alumni network or even internship or job projects. I have been introduced to the career center/services and that has been pretty helpful, but I mainly checked it out to see what it was and what they offered. However, I do plan to utilize a lot of these services as I progress down the road to Physical Therapy, as I believe they will be an incredibly helpful resource.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not really into Greek life, I have never been interested in it. I never pay attention to those who are a part of Greek life or think anything highly of them. I have noticed that some people who are a part of it, tend to think they are better than others, which is ridiculous. But that's a college campus for you, and you can choose who you want to associate with.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The sports at KU, no matter what it is, always seem to bring everyone together. Even if you aren't a big sports fan, like me, you still get really sucked into the excitement and joy from everyone else when it comes to rooting for your school. The energy is infectious.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have been at a community college for the better part of 4 years, so KU has been my first university experience. I have yet to be disappointed by the campus, students, and professors. I have never felt more accepted or like I could comfortably talk with any of the faculty without being met with some kind of resistance like I have experienced before at prior schools. My experience here has been amazing so far, and I can only hope it continues throughout my college career while at KU.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Every professor I've had at KU has been knowledgable and skilled in their professions. They know what they're talking about and they want to give you the best education possible.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I typically feel safe walking by myself on campus, but I get nervous late at night because there are occasional reports of muggings and attacks. Sexual assault in correlation with Greek life is a big issue for KU, and has even made national headlines in recent years. It doesn't worry me because I take proper precautions, but it could happen to anyone.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I've never been to a frat party at KU, but they aren't talked about very often. KU partying is much more bar and house-oriented, because everything downtown is in such close proximity.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: KU is notorious for having a horrible football team, so you'll never see a crowd at Memorial stadium. What we lose in football, though, we make up in basketball. We have THE best basketball team in the nation and it's a huge part of our campus culture.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are friendly and knowledgable, there are countless clubs and organizations to be involved with, and the campus is breathtaking. KU is simply a great place to be. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

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.
