THE SESQUICENTENNIAL CELEBRATION

THIS MONTH IN KU HISTORY

(Historical facts have been compiled from the KU Archives and Special Collections of the Rohrbach Library; the archives of the Keystone; Kutztown Patriot, Allentown Leader and Reading Eagle; and Beacon on the Hill by Dr. Lee Graver.)

April 5, 1943:  Three hundred and seven members of the U. S. Army arrive on campus for training.  After a two-week quarantine, the soldiers are allowed to mingle with the students on campus.  The newly built cafeteria on campus is also turned over to the Army.  It is noted in the Keystone that the arrival was met with much anticipation by students who hung out of their windows to get a glimpse of the soldiers arriving.   The group is under the command of Sgt. Carl Moller, who the Keystone notes is "married but still a swell fellow."

TECH TUESDAYS: DID YOU KNOW...?
You can create Group Discussions in D2L? Group Discussions allow you to break a large class into smaller discussion groups to make the discussion forum more manageable for both the instructor and the student, creating a more collaborative and rich discussion. To set up Group Discussions, you must first set up Groups. See the  Creating Groups document for more information. Once your groups have been set up, D2L can automatically create a group-restricted topic for each of your discussion forums. The Creating Group Discussions guide outlines the process of creating Group Discussions.

Need more information about working with D2L? Visit our Faculty Resource Page for lots of how-to videos and documents!
