Homecoming is one of the oldest traditions at the university and, over the years, it has morphed from a way to attract alumni to football games into a weeklong celebration of Jayhawk spirit.
Kansas University’s third mascot, Centennial Jay, was introduced during the KU-Missouri basketball game in February. The Jayhawk will spread his wings and join Big Jay and Baby Jay at appearances throughout the coming school year.
Founded in 1882, the Alumni Association’s mission is to strengthen KU by informing, engaging and mobilizing the KU community, said Jennifer Sanner, KUAA senior vice president for communications.
The construction project is just one of many that have occurred at KU Hospital during the past five years to help keep up with growing demand for its services.
Kansas University Hospital is the comeback kid. Fourteen years ago, the hospital was fighting for survival. Employee turnover was high, patient volume was low and money was hard to come by. The hospital was on the verge of bankruptcy as a state agency.
When Kansas University last year opened a School of Medicine campus in Salina, it raised some eyebrows and created national buzz.
