Jayhawk Field Guide
At first glance, the beauty of Mount Oread lies in nature: the hill, the trees, the landscaping. And after that, perhaps, the buildings take over, with limestone craftsmanship that, in some cases, has withstood nearly 150 years. But look closer, and key pieces of art make campus what it is. In some cases, pieces have been in place so long they’re almost taken for granted.
In 2003, the Lawrence Convention and Visitors Bureau and participating organizations distributed 30 5-foot Jayhawk sculptures around town as part of Jayhawks on Parade, an art exhibit and fundraiser. Nine years later, 19 still can be viewed by the public.
Nothing screams freshman like mispronouncing one of the names of the 150 buildings on Kansas University’s campus. But how do you figure out the correct way to pronounce a name?
So, you’re new here. Don’t worry. There’s a lot for students to take in before starting out at Kansas University, and you’ll surely pick up a lot stuff along the way.
Renovations to Wescoe Beach instigated by the student body promise to make the area even more useful and attractive.
