College Life Rating

Lawrence, Kansas is one of the most spirited and friendly places I have ever been. Everyone here is welcoming and friendly and they all have their love for KU in common. We have one of the most prestigious basketball programs in the country and going to one game at Allen Field House is life-changing! There is always something going on in Lawrence whether its an athletic event, Greek event, or even concerts at the Granada. It is always busy in Lawrence no matter what time it is.

College Life Rating

Since this is a campus in Overland Park, Kansas, this is fairly new and not as many students attend it. However, this is what makes it so attractive and fun. I know I won't be stressed with a bunch of students running around trying to get to class. It creates a more calm environment, which helps me focus. I have just recently found the study abroad program for my Business Administration degree, which I would LOVE to do! I am wanting to get into international business, and this is the perfect opportunity. I am hoping to get some help with finances to make my goals and wishes come true!
