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.

KU ODYSSEY team digs for clues to ancient Pleistocene people Searching for evidence of early people living on the plains in the late Pleistocene age, (see http://bit.ly/1li6uYX) Rolfe Mandel, a KU distinguished professor of anthropology, led an excavation in July 2014 in the “Coffey Site” along the Big Blue River bank in Pottawatomie County, Kansas. Mandel says artifacts from Pleistocene period sediments could provide more clues about the Clovis and pre-Clovis people, who were the founding inhabitants of the Americas.
