 Memorial Day



(Click Here for the Central Calendar)


8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Office of the Dean of Students Closed for Training




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


Definitely some improvement today over yesterday, but still not a pretty spring day. A lot of clouds linger. Maybe a little sun if we’re fortunate. And a few showers around at any time, but not accumulating to more than a tenth of an inch or so as a warm front and low pressure lingers nearby. Highs will be in the low 70s.




Meal ticket pricing will go up June 1 and may only be used in the South Dining Hall or Cub Cafe. Breakfast $6.65 Lunch $7.95 and Dinner $9.20.  Your orange meal tickets expire May 31.  When entering information into SAP for meal tickets please allow 1 week notice so Aramark 3-4921 can staff their venues and Mary Vink 3-4904 can flip your purchase requisition into a PO.  Please use the following codes.  Desired Vendor # 1077038, Material Group 00764, PGR 460.  Check with dining 3 -1314 as to what is open for the summer for there are limited venues and has a modified menu.  The department that purchases the meal tickets is responsible for all meal tickets purchased whether used on the day of the event or after.

May 26
The Office of the Dean of Students, Student Conduct and Student Assistance Coordinator, 119 Stratton Administration Center, will be closed Friday, May 26, from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. due to new system training.

Through June 8
Annual fire alarm testing will be conducted in the university's education and general purpose buildings, during the next several weeks. This testing is performed to ensure the alarm and mass notification systems are functioning properly. While every effort has been made to schedule this testing around classes, events and other special activities during the daytime hours, test technicians will also be conducting testing during the evenings and some Saturdays due to unavoidable conflicts during the weekday. We appreciate your cooperation while we ensure our life safety systems are operating optimally.
