Most Helpful Review for University of Kansas

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.

    this used to be a great school. but do not come here while brownback is in office; funding is gone and majors and entire programs are being cut to make due. kansas is a treacherous place to be, even in the most liberal town in the state.

    The University of Kansas has a hometown feel and is located in the comfortable city of Lawrence. When taking breaks from studying, Greek life and parties are well known here. The only downside is the diversity!

    The squirrels here are slightly horrifying but always entertaining. If you walk to class, you won't have to worry about the freshman 15 because there are so many hills (but, if you want, there's a great rec center as well)! College is not completely what I expected it to be, but KU makes it great nonetheless!

    Although the sports aren't the best, the university has incredible school spirit. The students are extremely welcoming and make good conversation with everyone visiting. The campus is beautiful with plenty of space to study and participate in other activities and clubs and the academic rigor is unparalleled.

    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.
