I love the University of Kansas! I come a small town in Illinois, and I never had the chance to visit this campus because I didn't have the money. From just simply looking at the campus online and the opportunities I will get I fell in love. The campus is absolutely beautiful and the administration is so passionate about education. They're always there to help with anything you need. There are so many job opportunities for students that need some money. There are hundreds of different clubs that students can join. It is a great community.

The University of Kansas has always held a special place in my heart. Since I was born, I have been rooting on the KU Basketball team and wouldn't trade my love for the Jayhawks for anything! Even though I am only a first semester freshman, I have already created so many amazing memories at KU. From Sorority Recruitment, to football games, to Late Night in the Phog, I have enjoyed every second, even the countless hours of studying! KU is such a unique place that is filled with many different people and personalities, and I cannot wait to see what else is in store for me here.
I've stayed on campus for summer camps--they are always fun! The dorms are nice, most newly remodeled or newly built. The campus cafeteria is Mrs. E's and they always have a variety of meals and times to eat. The academic and cultural atmosphere of the campus and town are unbeatable. I love Lawrence, and look forward to living there as a student.
