April showers bring…snow? Chris Bernosky, freshman in the University of Kansas School of Engineering, was studying in the sixth floor lobby of Oliver when he saw this storm coming in over campus. “I thought it was cool how the sun is still visible even though the dark clouds are rolling in.” Rain or shine, how will you #exploreKU this spring?

The Big Event at KU 2014 The 2014 Big Event connected the KU campus with the Lawrence community by recruiting 3,000 student, faculty, and staff volunteers to work at 300 local job sites during one day of service.  Registration for volunteers and job requests for residents will be available in fall 2014 for the 2015 Big Event.
