ABOUT THE UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS AND LAWRENCE, KANSAS: The University of Kansas is one of the leading research universities in the United States and has a strong tradition of academic excellence. The Fiske Guide to Colleges 2009 describes the University of Kansas as "one of the premier college bargains in the United States," and lauds the University's honors program as well as its campus by describing it as "among the loveliest in the United States." The guide singles out business as one of KU's strongest programs. The KU School of Business offers undergraduate, Masters (full and part-time) and Ph.D. programs. It currently enrolls 1113 undergraduate students. The average professional GPA of juniors admitted to the undergraduate program is 3.28. The School is in a growth mode and in recent years has added more majors, an Honors program, and has significantly expanded the size of its faculty. Under the able leadership of Dean Neeli Bendapudi, it also has begun an ambitious new building campaign.
The School of Business utilizes the Lawrence campus as well as the Edwards campus, located in Overland Park, a suburb of Kansas City. Lawrence is located 35 miles west of Kansas City atop Mount Oread in the Kansas River valley. It is anything but flat. It has a population of about 90,000, with a large student population and a small-town friendly atmosphere with many of the attractions of a big city. It boasts a nationally recognized live music scene and an historic downtown full of shops, galleries, micro-breweries, restaurants, and charm to spare. Museums in town and on campus offer exhibits of classic and contemporary art, natural history and anthropology.
Today, residents take advantage of the many walking and bike trails along the Kansas River and around the town's perimeter. A few minutes outside the wooded city of Lawrence is Clinton State Park and Reservoir, with over 1,400 acres of public land and water. With only a short drive, one can wander through the gently rolling Flint Hills or explore the numerous historic sites and state parks of north-eastern Kansas.
Kansas City, home to the KU Medical Center, is a 40 minute drive from Lawrence. The Kansas City metropolitan area has a population of 2.0 million and offers many fine restaurants, superb shopping, and an extensive choice of professional, cultural and sporting events. The Kansas City International Airport (MCI) offers flights to all major U.S. cities and is less than an hour's drive from Lawrence.
