Learning here doesn't just take place in the classroom, it happens everywhere. Meeting someone who's had a different background than yourself can open your eyes more than any textbook.


I enjoyed being able to meet people and make new friends every semester. Also, being able to watch Kansas basketball in Allen Fieldhouse is something everyone should experience, even if they don't go to KU.

Students at KU are some of the most accepting people I know. No matter what you believe, how you grew up, or what you think, you can find friends and like-minded people here. The other great thing about KU are the scholarship halls. Its a community of friends who are focused on getting the best education possible and still having a good time while we're in college. I had 50 automatic friends and have lived here for 4 years and would do it again in a heartbeat!


The University of Kansas has the most overwhelming school spirit you can find. Game day, no matter for football or our Champion basketball team, is a sea of blue shirts as every student, professor, and resident of Lawrence rallies behind our Jayhawks. The level of commitment to our college and our team is incredible. Once you are a Jayhawk, you will always be a Jayhawk, and there is a sense of belonging in that identity. I've been across the country and found people sporting KU hats, and immediately had a new friend. Rock Chalk!


It is a place to express your self. There are so many different people that come from different places that you get to meet, even if some of them come from your home town.
