University of Kansas Reviews
The University of Kansas is a beautiful campus surrounded by a very liberal and exciting town (Lawrence). The teachers that I have encountered are of great help in finding students passions and showing the various options of work after graduation. Teachers of first year classes aide in the transition into college and provide helpful tips and tricks in doing well in school as well as becoming independent (especially with dorm life). Great school with great educators, amazing environment, with many options in getting involved. KU also has awesome sports teams that further unite the student body. Rock Chalk!
I very much enjoy the University of Kansas, I have joined a sorority and found some of my closest friends. The academics, especially in the psychology apartment are reasonable challenging, and very entertaining. Some of my favorite people to talk with are my professors, because they are so engaging and knowledgeable which keeps me interested and wanting to learn more. One thing I really am passionate about is climate change, and I would like to see a change of campus food and possible more energy saving tactics to help the earth out, because I believe there would be a chain reaction of universities getting involved to also help the planet. With that, I think there is many resources available to make it happen, but overall I love being a Jayhawk!
The students that are welcoming have school spirit like no other school I have seen! Sports are huge here and everyone loves it! It is no a clique type of school, there is not "groups" everyone mingles with each other. The housing is average, but the food here is amazing! Downtown Lawrence, especially Mass Street, is definitely the place to be. There are so many different restaurants with different types of food anyone can enjoy. The University of Kansas has a great party scene for the students. The Allen Field house gets crazy during basketball games, the student sections goes crazy.
