Students getting into the Jayhawk spirit

Student Life

As students, we shine. As Jayhawks, we rise.

Life on campus is more than academics. At KU, you will contribute to the tradition of artists, leaders, and innovators who inspire us — and you'll reflect the inclusivity and ambition at the heart of our legacy. And sometimes, you'll just have fun.

Get Involved

Each year, KU students create hundreds of clubs and organize hundreds of events. When you’re a Jayhawk, life is defined by a culture of collaboration.

The KU Fan Experience

To experience KU fandom is to experience KU history. From the roar of Allen Fieldhouse to the haunting call of our Rock Chalk Chant as it rises over campus, you don’t just witness Jayhawk spirit — you feel it.

KU Community

We believe in building a community of Jayhawks, and that begins with student involvement and leadership on campus.
