KU announces spring 2013 candidates for degree

Fri, 05/17/2013

LAWRENCE — The names of more than 4,500 candidates for degrees at the University of Kansas this spring — representing 95 Kansas counties, 41 other states and the District of Columbia, and 42 other countries — have been announced by the University Registrar.

The Class of 2013 includes more than 1,440 students who completed degree work in summer and fall 2012. Because KU conducts only one formal Commencement ceremony each year, many of these graduates will return Sunday, May 19, for the university’s 141st Commencement. More than half of the members of the Class of 2013 are expected to participate.

Faculty and candidates for degrees will assemble at 10 a.m. along Memorial Drive for the procession, which begins at 10:30 a.m.

Commencement information and an up-to-date schedule of events are available at commencement.ku.edu.

Degree candidates are listed online by home city and county, state or country; and degree, based on available information. There is also a list of all students listed alphabetically. These lists only include names of students who applied for graduation by March 10.

Curiosity sparks KU paleontologist Chris Beard’s quest for man’s ancient cousins When he’s not scrutinizing ancient primate fossils in his KU lab, world-renowned paleontologist Chris Beard (http://bit.ly/1w3TQSj) is out stalking human evolutionary ancestors in remote corners of Libya, Turkey, China, Myanmar, Kazakhstan, Cambodia, Egypt, Tunisia, or Kenya. Beard, who came to KU as a Foundation Distinguished Professor, has a passion for being out in the middle of nowhere and making a discovery — “There’s nothing better than that. It’s fabulous.”
