STUDENT Testimonials

Naismith Hall is the best place to live and study. I like the way Naismith organizes tutoring activity, and I see the tutoring service as very useful option for international students.


Choosing to live at Naismith Hall rather than the other residence halls was probably one of the best decision I've made when i moved to Lawrence. Naismith provides many convenient facilities that are easily accessible for the residents such as its own dining hall. Its always nice to know that you just have to go down a few floors to eat, without having to go out.
