"Even on an ordinary Saturday, when I am pressed for time to complete the (at times) overwhelming amount of schoolwork I have, there are moments so extraordinary — like looking up at the sun through the mosaic of colored leaves on campus — that remind me why I love what I do and why I love KU." - Sam Henkin, first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Geography, University of Kansas #exploreKU

The University of Kansas — Shaping those who shape the world Their feats are outstanding, extraordinary — even mythical. They are known as heroes. Discoverers. Innovators. Legends. But before they began shaping the world, they were each shaped themselves on a legendary Hill known as Mount Oread. And they all share one name that you should share too: Jayhawk.
