  • Every Jayhawk’s journey starts with a dream – an inspiration or a calling. For Aaron (pictured left), those dreams doubled in size after his family visited campus this summer. “I can’t wait to go to KU,” he said to his mom before dozing off that night.

    These moments are powerful and really get us thinking – what motivated you to become a Jayhawk? Was it a family member, a tradition, a specific major, or something else? We'd love to hear your story!

  • Fraser Hall is one of KU’s most iconic structures, and a sure sign that you’re approaching Jayhawk country. This building of cottonwood and silverdale limestone opened March 6, 1967. It sits on the second-highest point on Mount Oread — 1,031 feet — and is visible for miles.

    Do you remember the first time you laid eyes on Fraser Hall? Tell us about it!

  • Join us in welcoming the newest group of international Jayhawks to campus – and to Lawrence! It takes courage and dedication to move to a new country in pursuit of one’s dreams and aspirations, and we’re so glad these students made the choice to come to KU.

    Let’s help welcome them to town by making a list of must-do's for new Lawrencians. Here are some ideas:

    ☕ Tag your favorite places to get coffee, tea, and tasty food.
    📚 Tag your favorite bookstore, your favorite library, favorite art/music venue.
    🌅 Have a favorite park or chill spot? Add it to the list!
    🛍️ Best places to shop and support local? Yes – add them, too!

    Let's do this, Jayhawks.

  • As an internationally competitive baton twirler in Toronto, Canada, Nicole Johnson impressed audiences with the degree of difficulty found in her acrobatic routines.

    As a Jayhawk, she found a way to express that complexity using another talent — math.

    Nicole Johnson received an Undergraduate Research Award for “Baton Twirling into the Fourth Dimension.” Working with associate professor Estela Gavosto, she translated her astonishing performances into equally beautiful graphs.

    “Just being able to show that there’s this different side of math than what you normally see — that is one of the really cool outcomes of this project,” says Johnson, who graduated in May 2019 with honors in both mathematics and engineering physics.
