THE TIME HAS COME
On Wednesday, Oct. 7, and Thursday, Oct. 8, join us and participate in our annual 1866 Minute Giving Challenge! The entire world has changed, and every person’s life looks a little different, including those in the KU community. For 1866 minutes, we will come together and raise support for scholarship, emergency funds and student experiences. Everyone, together, will make an impact. Will you join before time runs out?

WEATHER

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

Patchy fog to start but skies will clear by midmorning. Cold front to pass by late afternoon. Frontal passage will promote a turbulent layer in the mid-atmosphere which may crash down at the surface creating some gusty winds later. High temperature in the mid-70s. Winds south at 15-25 mph, gusting to 35 mph.

STRONGER TOGETHER FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN

The Golden B.E.A.R. (Belonging, Empathy, Advocacy, Respect) Rule is about treating others as they want to be treated; building a culture of respect each day on our campus. In light of recent times, the Golden B.E.A.R. community has sought to listen and impart lasting change that supports our students with a focus on equity, diversity and inclusion. This year we are proud to roll out the Stronger Together campaign and fundraiser. All proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to further support KU’s inclusion centers. https://www.customink.com/fundraising/strongtogether
