As with other colleges, freshman year generally means class sizes in the hundreds. However, the professors and teaching assistants do a relatively good job on relaying information to classes of these sizes. Most of my classes used PowerPoint slides which made it easy to follow along while the professor was lecturing.

    I am a senior in high school and beginning my college applications. KU was the first college I applied to because it is close by, in-state tuition, the campus is beautiful and their journalism program is beyond amazing. While I have not decided for sure if I will attend or not, KU is on the top of my list.

    The university of Kansas is a school with a fantastic and welcoming environment. The close knit jay hawk community provides a home away from home feel that helps with the scary college transition, even if you're far from home such as I am. The school is balanced in all areas of college such as the academics are challenging but not impossible, you don't HAVE to be in greek life but its still fun, and Lawrence is welcoming.

    The University of Kansas is better known as your home away from home. The university focuses on the importance of a quality education, while focusing on the importance of comradery between not only just the students, but also the staff. The University of Kansas is everything a college is expected to be and should be, if not more.

    KU is a fantastic place to live and learn! The campus is beautiful and contains all the amenities necessary for a successful education. And Lawrence has a very small town feel so you get the best of both worlds: a big university and a small town.

    Look elsewhere for Industrial Design if you are not willing or capable of completely preparing yourself for industry on completely your own time. Industrial Design program is generally disorganized and the lack of quantitative information is less than ideal. Percentage of students who land good internships and/or jobs is not fantastic.

    If you come to KU, expect a lot of school spirit. KU has a pretty big campus, but it's absolutely gorgeous. Personally, I have amazing teachers who are good at what they do.
