The University of Karachi is HUGE and has all kind of shady rumors about it. People judge me when I tell them I am a KU grad but you know what? Studying at the University of Karachi was the best thing that ever happened to me. It made me a better person, a stronger person and most importantly I have had the best education. I can deal with anything that comes my way!

Here are 21 things you can relate to if you are a student of Karachi University:

1. The university is so big that it hurts!

It is like a city within the city. It is a four-or-more year adventurous journey!
