Our next stop on the college tour is the University of Kansas, home of the Jayhawks. KU stands strong with 29,000 students enrolled across its 5 different campuses. In addition to having a great academic program, Kansas is one of the best sports schools in our nation. Renowned for its D1 Basketball, Football, and Track&Field programs, the Jayhawks always put up a fight for the championship year after year.
You know what they say: with great sports comes even greater tailgates. If you love blacking out, barbecue, and a good game of ball, KU is the place for you. Here are the 25 GIFs that perfectly describe attending the University of Kansas.
