LAWRENCE — The University Career Center at the University of Kansas will host a Part-Time Job Fair from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Aug. 26, in the Kansas Union fourth-floor lobby. KU students who want to work part-time during the school year will have the opportunity to visit with KU employers and off-campus employers from the Lawrence and Kansas City area about job opportunities. For a list of participating employers, visit career.ku.edu.  The fair is designed to simplify the search for a part-time job.

The University Career Center is located in 110 Burge Union. Part-time job vacancies can be found at career.ku.edu/ptjobs. This site is updated daily and provides information about both on-campus and off-campus employment opportunities for students. 



When looking to tackle the issue of obesity in rural America, where should we start? The answer is not what you might think. Empathy, says Christie Befort, an associate professor at KU who has just won a $10 million award from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute to investigate solutions to rural obesity. Many physicians are embarrassed talking about weight—especially in a small town where everybody knows each other, Befort says. By providing obesity treatment options in rural primary care, she plans to start a conversation, and maybe a revolution, in rural health care.

Explore KU: Experience a KU Men's Basketball tradition It’s explosive. It’s dramatic. It’s intimidating. It’s a KU tradition (see more at http://bit.ly/KUtraditions) simply known as the Confetti Toss. But it creates a primal eruption of fan enthusiasm at the opening of every KU men’s basketball game at Allen Fieldhouse. It starts as the visiting team is introduced on court. The KU student section is visibly bored and unimpressed. The entire section under the north basket holds up University Daily Kansans — making the point they’d rather read the newspaper than even look at the other team. They shake and rustle the student newspapers. Then the moment they were waiting for arrives — the Jayhawks enter the court. All Rock Chalk breaks loose. Newspapers, confetti and thousands of thundering voices soar into already charged atmosphere of KU’s hallowed basketball arena. The confetti hits its high point, near the banner on the north wall reading “Pay Heed, All Who Enter: Beware of the Phog.” And the confetti rains back into the stands, onto the court and into the memories of all at hand. It’s time to play.
