Ambler Student Recreation Fitness Center to celebrate 10-year anniversary

Wed, 09/18/2013

LAWRENCE The Ambler Student Recreation Fitness Center will celebrate its 10-year anniversary with an open house, which will take place 2:30 p.m.-5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25.

All students, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend.

KJHK 90.7 FM will broadcast live during the Open House. Snacks will be offered. There will be a historical timeline and a slideshow to see the history of how the building came to be. A surprise is planned as well.

In connection with the 10-year celebration, there will be a Decathlon, which will begin with an opening ceremony and two events Sunday, Sept. 22. Two of the 10 events will take place over the course of the four days. Monday, Sept. 23, and Tuesday, Sept. 24, will entail two more events each, and the final two events will round out the Decathlon on Sept. 25, including a closing ceremony during the Open House.

To participate in the Decathlon, form a team of 5-10 members among students, faculty and staff, then sign up at IMLeagues.com/KU and participate for prizes.

For more details about the Open House or the Decathlon events, see the Ambler website



Throwback Thursday at KU: Do you remember the Glass Onion? Fred Sadowski, a photograher for the Kansan, wrote on the back of this photo: "The Glass Onion, 624 W. 12th St., is a popular place for undergraduates to meet. The coffee shop offers a variety of drinks, food, and a good place to study." We can still taste the milkshakes. KU History
