WHAT I LIKED

The atmosphere around KU is very welcoming and all the staff is very friendly.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Some classes feel like they are rushed and feels like the teachers are just trying to get through the lesson.

3.0

WHAT I LIKED

Teachers actually care about you and your grades. They want you to succeed, even if you don't ask for help they offer it. Most of my teachers so far are very understanding and also lenient.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Don't be afraid to ask for help because you will get it because it's literally everywhere.

WHAT I LIKED

My favorite things about the University of Kansas have been the community, tradition, and the way it feels like a small, tight-knit University despite its size.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I have no real complaints. I occasionally wish I would've chosen a different career path, but I am thankful for my incredibly supportive professors and advisor!

WHAT I LIKED

The living conditions were fantastic. I had access to quality food, toiletry items, and laundry all from the comfort of my dorm building. Additionally, the academics are exceptional. All of my professors truly cared about their students succeeding in their courses.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The cost is the major detractor. There are very few institutional scholarships making it a challenge to continue there without the stress of financials.

I wish it was more diverse and my personal school building was old.
