Founded in 1865, the University of Kansas welcomed its first class of students to an unfinished building on a treeless ridge called Mount Oread. From that single building, we have grown to five campuses — the Lawrence campus, the Edwards Campus in Overland Park, and medical branches in Kansas City, Wichita, and Salina – with over 28,000 current students and more than 300,000 alumni worldwide.
