University of Kansas Reviews
Rating 3.81 out of 5 3,227 reviews
I think the University of Kansas is great. So far, I loved every single professor I have had and learned a lot of valuable information.
The online experience during the coronavirus pandemic was great. I think many professors did a great job at fostering an inclusive class room environment online.
My online experience was good considering the state of things and being forced online due to the pandemic. Classes that were intentionally online were better suited but I did not feel as though I lost out in the majority of my classes.
KU's academics were wonderful and I felt really prepared me for graduate school. However, the environment, though they tried was not necessarily as open to all thoughts and opinions as they appear.
Currently high school senior...online experience has been housing and enrollment process; have not completed online courses at KU...will be full time freshman
High school information sessions ok, but would have been better if a major fair and campus tour occurred...will be full time freshman
Most classes are online now, we work around the difficulties the best way we can. I do miss learning in person, but I have had little trouble keeping up with online school.
Due to Covid, it has been rather reserved, but the people here are very kind. Open-minded towards minorities. The campus is beautiful, and the professors are amazing.
My experience here was excellent. I met great people that are friends for life and experienced great learning experiences. Beautiful campus and excellent professors.
Having attended during COVID-19, I can say with confidence that KU did their best to adjust to the situation. I would say they did an excellent job of transitioning to online learning and I had no problems with it whatsoever.
I have loved attending KU! I have met wonderful people through my time here and my involvement on campus. I would like to be more involved in different programs here, but Covid has complicated that a bit. There are a lot of opportunities through KU and there is a lot of interesting history here. I couldn't imagine being anywhere else.
Online learning is not ideal. I've found it very difficult to adapt, especially since some professors find it to be a reason to assign more work than they otherwise would. While I am overall dissatisfied with this experience, I'm not sure what more they could be doing. It really just seems to be a lose-lose situation.
I did not do online classes at KU but i had friends who did. They said it was fine, nothing special.
At the University of Kansas, my major gave me a lot of flexibility in choosing classes across a wide range of disciplines. I could explore a lot of different topics while still fulfilling degree requirements. There are also a wide variety of student groups, so people can find many groups that fit their interests. The one thing I didn't like was how disconnected KU was from the rest of the Lawrence community. I wish there were more opportunities for students to engage with the local community.
When the pandemic started, I felt my classes shifted easily from an in-person to an online format. My classes were mostly discussion and presentation based, so they became a little less interactive and engaging when they were moved on-line. However, I felt like my professors worked hard to make up for the online format's deficiencies.
I don't have any major problems with KU, I like the fact that there are a lot of potions given which in turn provides a lot of diversity.
It has been a great experience, I haven't had any major problems. the instructors are helpful and I rarely find myself lost. I encourage people to give it a try, it is worth it.
Honestly, for an average school, it is incredibly expensive and the location is terrible. The basketball is super fun and the teachers are pretty good.
Instead of teaching class over zoom, we were expected to learn from our textbooks and then complete assignments on our own. then the teacher would review what we had to learn. I taught myself entirely and it was a waste of money to be at KU
I was born and raised a Jayhawk and always considered KU as an option when applying for colleges. I enjoyed my time at KU and felt that the city of Lawrence allowed a big state school to feel a little bit smaller. KU has plenty of academic routes to choose and a huge list of activities and clubs to be involved in.
