I sincerely have enjoyed my time at the University of Kansas so far. The school has incredible spirit and everyone who is apart of this school has so much passion for it. The bus systems for the campus are a great help for anyone trying to get to classes and you can pretty much get on a bus from anywhere in Lawrence.
As I am a student on the KU Edwards Campus, I have found that the facility there is absolutely amazing! It is very new, and every classroom has new computers and comfortable seats for my 3 hour classes. The teaches I have had so far has been very helpful and friendly, with some having diversified teaching techniques. I love that I can go to school on a Monday night at 7:10pm, with through 3 hours of class, and not be bored one bit. They make it fun, easy, and provide TONS of help. I couldn't be more happier. The location helped me working full time in town while studying for my citizenship exam as well as keeping up with my three siblings who are all in college, not to mention my mother who also works full-time while going to school. They have definitely helped me push through life.
