    Top-notch computer labs include a variety of modeling software, and free printing. Access to a 3D printer is also available, but if used for personal projects, material costs are charged.

    There are so many it's hard to pick, but my favorite is the Brown Bag Drag Show hosted by Spectrum KU (formerly known as Queers & Allies). They bring in professional drag queens and encourage students to enter with their own choreographed musical numbers. In 2010 when Westboro Baptist Church started a protest during the show, students came together in a counterprotest by holding a pledge per minute fund raiser for the amount of time Fred Phelps attended. Needless to say, he left quickly after he found out and he never personally attended the protests again, causing the number of protesters to dwindle significantly. The thousand-plus dollars raised were donated to Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri. This is one of my favorite examples of how KU students can think outside the box, by fighting hate with humor and charity rather than more hate.

What is the campus setting like?
1 Answer
  • The University of Kansas is located on a 1,000 acre campus in an urban setting that allows students to conveniently travel around on campus-provided or public transportation. The school has nine residence halls that have—in addition to amenities like wireless Internet, study spaces, and printing stations—a unique flavor. For example, students in Ellsworth Hall can relax between classes by playing basketball on the courts behind the building or Ping Pong on the main floor. Budding artists can practice their musical instruments in Hashinger Hall’s practice rooms or express themselves on a canvass in the building’s painting room. Similarly, those who live in Lewis Hall can hit the ivories in the piano room.
