I think that KU is a good school and there school of liberal arts and sciences is amazing. they have a long way to in diversity when it comes to race but everything else is fine. The food here has its good days and its bad days. the housing isn't bad at all just a few naive people here and there

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently a freshman at KU and while overall I have enjoyed my time here, it has ups and downs. My biggest dislike is I have a lot of trouble with financial aid and if that is also something important for you too, look into outside scholarships. On the flip side, classes are great and the people I've met living in a dorm, on campus, or through greek life have all been amazing people that I could never imagine not meeting.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

KU is a big state school so you can expect school spirit, greek life (Panhellenic, IFC NPHC, and multicultural). Studying history and African American Studies granted me a lot of opportunities and allowed me to meet some of the best professors at KU. I am now in grad school and there are things that were mandatory for KU students or things I learned as a freshman that Masters students who are almost 30 do not know or understand. KU is amazing and offered an unmatched educational experience in and outside the class

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you had asked me three years ago where I wanted to go to college, the University of Kansas would have been the second to last on my list, with K-State on the bottom of course! The reasoning was nothing personal towards KU, because don't get me wrong, I loved watching their basketball team dominate, however, living my entire life in Kansas, my want and passion to see the world, let alone the county, was ever so strong and therefore I wanted to move as far away as possible. However, as I matured, my opinion drastically changed. I realized how important my family is to me, and looking back I truly do not think I could have functioned if my mom did not make biweekly trips up to campus to take me to lunch, in fact, if she did not make all those trips up to Lawrence, I would not have been able to explore all the mouth-watering restaurants on Massachusetts Street! When it really came time to decide where I wanted to go, choosing the University of Kansas was the easiest decision of my life, in fact it was so easy it was the only college I applied to. From the first time I stepped foot onto the beautiful campus and looked down on Potter Lake from Jayhawk Blvd., I knew I was at home, and I still get chills each time I merge from I-435 West onto K-10 because I know in a short thirty minutes I will be back in my happy place. The University of Kansas has not only made me feel at home, but it has also provided me with outstanding professors, such as Kerry Benson, and hundreds of opportunities. I love KU because they truly make the sky the limit between all the possible clubs, organizations, classes, and friends that can be made! If I could give fifteen-year-old Page advice, it would be to chose KU from the start. Even though I ended up not leaving my birth state, KU has an outstanding study abroad program, which I wish to take advantage of in my years to come! My dream is that my three siblings will follow in my footsteps and choose KU, because ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Kansas is an exceptional place to visit, and it seems like it is a perfect opportunity to learn. My decision has been made to attend this college in the coming year, and I look forward to the education I will be provided with. The town is also big enough that you will never get bored.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Kansas is a great University! It is a beautiful campus in a really neat town with towns of diversity. The size, however, can be daunting and make it hard to form relationships. This can be helped by joining clubs or participating in Greek life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I have a high opinion of the University of Kansas. I am currently a freshman pursuing a nursing degree and I have enjoyed my college experience so far. Sports culture, class size, and professors are a few things I have enjoyed most at KU. Sports culture is huge, especially during basketball season. Attending sporting events surrounded by fellow students provides a sense of community I have never experienced before. Along with sports culture, I am very pleased with the variety of class sizes at KU. Because KU is a large university, there are lectures with hundreds of students. But, there are also small classes with as few as ten to twenty students. This variety of class size is fulfilling for students who prefer smaller, more personal classroom environments as well as students who prefer larger class sizes. Perhaps what I have enjoyed most at KU is my professors. So far, all of my professors have been kind, helpful, and more than willing to prove feedback to help me better my work. I have never been afraid or nervous to reach out to any of my professors for help, and that is extremely important to me. Despite the tiring rotation of food at the dining halls, I do not have many bad things to say about the University of Kansas.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I consider myself privileged to be a part of the culture at KU and of Lawrence as a whole. The education I've received thus far has been outstanding. I've been pushed to think harder, to analyze critically, to practice speaking conversational Spanish, to ask unaswerable questions, and I'm only about halfway through. The business school is second to none, and the facilities at KU allow students like me, with meager financial assets, opportunities to complete assignments in a variety of different computer labs. There is much development going on a KU, and the new halls are just marvelous. Lawrence itself has a character and an energy of its own. Mass street is famous for it's small businesses, it's unique flavors, it's protests, it's originality, it's musical presence, it's restaraunts, and it's citizens. I want to live here. Permanently. The end.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really do like the University of Kansas and I have made tons of friends and had lots of fun. However, I think I personally would succeed more academically in smaller class sizes rather than my 700 students lecture halls. The student to teacher ratio is very unbalanced. I feel that the school is more focused on sports and having fun than getting good grades and helping people to succeed.
