KU proposes tuition increases for 2011-12 school year

There is nothing unique to KU about this. State support is decreasing all over the country and state universities in every state are having to increase tuition in addition to making other cost-saving changes. This is well documented in the Chronicle of Higher Education. I work at a university and I am seeing it where I work.

KU Athletic Director Sheahon Zenger discusses Arrowhead game, team rankings at Chamber of Commerce luncheon

There has been a lot of talk lately in the Chronicle of Higher Education about Title IX and the unintended consequences. It needs to be scrapped because it is seriously flawed. A lot of schools have had to drop men's sports and add women's sports that no one is interested in just to comply with the law. They should exempt football from the calculations and start from scratch with a new law.

Kansas Half Marathon draws hundreds

Great event! First time I've run this one and thoroughly enjoyed it. I hope they re-route the course again next year because a loop is better than an out-and-back.
Funny, I've never noticed a problem with the men's shorts. Then again, some folks might not like the compression tights I wear, either.
A big thank-you to the volunteers and the LPD for helping us out.

Enrollment trend

Reduced state aid and increased tuition is happening at institutions nationwide. Kansas is not unique. And the "new" admission standards are still very low. Low retention and graduation rates could be linked to low admission standards.
