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.

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.
