Oh, and also I'm pretty conservative, but socially I lean a bit towards the liberal side. From the other reviews it seems that KU and Lawrence are pretty liberal. Are people not very accepting towards conservatives or is it not that big of an issue?
Kansas is a very conservative state, and as they get 75% of their students from Kansas, they would have to be pretty accepting of them. The only thing that might make you feel out of place is the difference between SoCal and Kansas.

Most people aren’t surprised to hear the majority of the student population is white, but this doesn’t mean that KU lacks in diversity. Compared to other colleges in the Midwest and especially other colleges in Kansas, KU is as diverse as it gets. It doesn’t have the typical conservative feel that other Kansas colleges have, and it’s often considered a safe-haven for members of different ethnicities or sexual orientations.
Students from more than 110 countries around the world call KU home at some point during their college career. With so many foreign students, there’s always someone or something new around the corner. KU also boasts one of the highest study abroad rates of any public university in the nation, which shows that KU students are interested in knowing how people live in other parts of the world. Students agree that KU has a unique feel, and it’s often considered an oasis of diversity in the middle of the state of Kansas. The administration is pushing to increase enrollment rates of minorities at the University to make the numbers show it’s as diverse as many students feel it is.
