Kansas City Trip Series

Kansas City is a large metropolitan city in the heart of America, only about 45 minutes away from Lawrence. Once a month, ISS will plan a trip to a different location in the Kansas City area and will bring students there on a bus. (Examples include a Sporting KC Soccer Game, the Kansas City Zoo, the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, and Shopping on the Plaza) Students must purchase a ticket to participate in advance, and we will advertise each trip individually.

Is there an area of Kansas City you would like to visit? Send an email to issprograms@ku.edu and let us know!
