March Money Madness

It's time to get the ball in your court and the money in your bank! Follow KU Student Money Management @KU_SMMS on Twitter all throughout March to help us celebrate Money Madness. If you respond to our daily question/ challenge correctly, you will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a prize each week!


The Central Field opened on Saturday, February 17th!  This field is located at 19th and Ousdahl in the Central District right between Downs and the new Stouffer Apartments.  Scheduling for the Central field is coordinated by Bobby Arnold (bassboy@ku.edu). Find out more about Central Field here: https://recreation.ku.edu/central-field


Shoe Drive

Location: Throughout campus, and all of Lawrence. Collection bins on campus can be found in 633 Fraser Hall, Ambler Student Recreation Fitness Center, Daisy Hill Commons, GSP and Oliver/Downs Halls

Are you wondering what to do with your unused shoes sitting around your home? How about donating your shoes to the Undergraduate Anthropology Association (UAA) fundraiser? The shoe drive runs from February 1st - April 1st.

All donated shoes will be redistributed to micro-entrepreneurs in developing countries where economic opportunity and jobs are limited. These shoes will help them create, maintain and grow small businesses and also will help them feed, clothe and house their families.

By donating gently worn, used and new shoes to the UAA, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives around the world.

Informational Item:

As some of you might have noticed, bus traffic is only going in one direction (Northbound) on Engel Rd. this semester. As we now have access to Irving Hill Road after nearly a year and a half of closure due to construction, we will finally be able to have return traffic for route 43, 41, and 11 use Irving Hill Road. Please note, the temporary bus stops in front of Templin and across the street by Oswald will no longer be in use.
