University of Kansas Cheerleading

Why KU?

Get a great education

As much as we love cheerleading, it'll probably never pay the bills for us. That's why getting a good education is really the most important part of college. KU is consistently rated as one of the strongest academic institutions in the midwest and in the upper tier of public universities in the country, all at a very reasonable price.

But don't take my word for it...
