Increased traffic delays expected for 23rd and Louisiana on Tuesday and Wednesday

YES. It is so irritating to not be able to get from Prairie Park to... anywhere in Lawrence in a timely manner. The Haskell project is scheduled to continue for over a YEAR!

No snow days for KU's residential dining halls

What a nice write-up about these hard workers! This shows a lot of dedication to the happiness and well-being of KU students by the part of this dining staff.

More classrooms in use at KU on Tuesdays and Thursdays; far fewer on Fridays

Many large lecture classes that are 3 credit hours are held on MW with a 1 hour "discussion", usually taught by a GTA. These discussions are spread out throughout the week, eliminating a Friday component of the class. Many classes with a lab component are structured the same way, so this is not at all surprising to me.

Legislative committee hears proposed KU admissions standards

This makes perfect sense to me. KU's graduation and retention rates are so low because they are accepting mass amounts of people who are not ready to perform at a college level. It doesn't help those people to admit them and then set back their progress by suspending them due to academic probation, when they probably should have gone to a community college or smaller school to gain the skills that would allow them to thrive at a large university like KU.

Honestly, I think we should be looking more at the high schools in the state to make sure they are properly preparing students for higher education.

Trash carts get a push

It is still $5/ mo. You just pay it in 3 month chunks, so I get a $15 bill every 3 mo.
