KU Memorial Union proposes $45 million renovation; students will vote on whether to fund it

The removal of the Jaybowl was not desired, but was required due to the annual expenses to maintain the facility with no increased funding in sight. The "bland" location now would be changed with a renovation to a more usable space. The Jaybowl area cannot be brought up to fire codes without a renovation or creating new exits. Although it seems like there are renovations all the time, it is piecemeal. A major renovation would allow the Union to address that and make much more usable spaces for today's campus needs.

KU Memorial Union proposes $45 million renovation; students will vote on whether to fund it

The owner of the corporation are the students, faculty and alumni of the University. That is who makes up the corporation's board of directors. The building belongs to the University of Kansas although the funds used to construct it were corporation funds. There is nothing hidden when it comes to public records relating to the Union operation. Staff receive salaries or hourly wages and normal health, retirement and leave benefits offered by many companies. Often the benefits are not as good as that offered by the State of Kansas. All income is kept on campus to offer services and maintain an almost 100 year old structure that serves almost 2 million people a year.

Some elderly Kansans losing in-home services

Thanks for nothing Governor Brownback and the Kansas Republican party!

Take a elderly person to the polls in November and tell them who is cutting these services!

Questions abound about Obama's KU visit

So you think every president should sit in the White House and never leave? Never visit the country he or she leads or speak to people outside of Washington?

Obama coming to Lawrence to visit KU on Friday

Perhaps a little of your comment should be directed at the KS Legislature. They are the ones that keep cutting funding for education. "Real involvement with the towns people"... I really don't know what that means. KU people are involved across the community!

Obama coming to Lawrence to visit KU on Friday

When the issue is all about shooting victims, it is hard not to "use them" when trying to work on a solution for a problem.
