Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

A nearby frontal boundary brings us a day with more clouds than sunshine and the possibility of showers and thunderstorms in areas. Not a washout, but you might be dodging some precipitation at any time. Cool for late August. High around 76.


Thank You Volunteers

Thank you to all faculty, staff and students who volunteered their time and energy in helping new students and their families on move-in day. Your generosity and support are greatly appreciated. Go Bears!
