are most dorm close to main campus and how far is the walk
no, lived/living in Kansas for 12 years and occasionally you get a warning meaning a tornado is somewhere nearbyish,but don't fret over tornadoes they are usually out in the countryside.
None that I have experienced, although they do occur sometimes in this region.
Occasionally there is tornadoes in this area but there's not usually any problem with it that far north of Lawrence.

The Midwestern weather in Kansas always challenges the students at KU. The first semester is usually hot and humid, then students gradually prepare for the winter. Fall semester is the best chance to see a great view of the KU campus. The weather is excellent when all the leaves change color, and the temperature cools down and gets very mild.
It is extremely hot and humid during the summer season. Shorts and T-shirts are important during the summer and early fall. Lawrence will sometimes experience an Indian summer, so the fall tends to be hot. The winters are usually fairly mild, with an occasional winter storm with ice and snow. Kansas does not produce good snow, but an icy snow that turns into a nightmare for drivers in the area. Always prepare for the worst during the winter, as the weather can change drastically throughout the day. The spring is the best season in Lawrence because of the mild humidity and temperatures. During the winter, snow gear is important, along with a heavy winter coat—preferably down. The biggest battle in Lawrence is fighting the humidity. Get ready to shower more than once a day.
