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

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.”
