Jayhawk Harry Potter

There’s one thing our generation will never get too old for: Harry Potter. If you’ve been on social media recently, you’ve likely noticed a resurgence of obsessions with fantasizing about the Wizarding World.

You may have been a fan since day one, or maybe you’ve simply stumbled upon “Draco TikTok.” Either way we are here to help you relive your nostalgia.

We’ve created a Hogwarts House quiz, but rather than posing traditional questions, we’ve tailored University of Kansas-styled questions to determine your house.
