The Office of Admissions would like to thank those who assisted in the
Science Shadow Day on Nov. 14! We appreciate the 23 KU students who
served as hosts/hostesses and the faculty members for allowing prospective
students to sit in on classes. Dr. Angelika Antoni was instrumental in
coordinating the event with Chris Ferris, and the assistance of Dr. Phill Reed
and Professor Eric Laub who participated in the roundtable discussions. Our
prospective students commented very positively
about their experience.
Again, thanks to all who participated and assisted in helping to make this day
