State Fair

The Kansas State Fair, held in early September annually in Hutchison, attracts more than 300,000 people of all ages, giving KU an opportunity to showcase the advantages of being a Jayhawk and how the school serves the state.  Be sure to stop by to ask questions and grab giveaways.  We'll see you there!

Check out the Kansas State Fair.

We are seeking volunteers for the 2014 Kansas State Fair!  Bring your winning smile to share the KU message at this year's fair. 


The loud buzz of helicopters over the Lawrence campus was not President Obama visiting once again, but the signal of an important leadership development event. University of Kansas Army ROTC cadets from the University of Kansas Jayhawk Battalion lifted off from Shenk Sports Complex this afternoon to catch a ride to Fort Riley. Read why they hitched a ride here: http://bit.ly/1F58dGb #KUfacts: KU is one of just 50 universities in the nation offering an ROTC program that represents all branches of the military.

Explore KU Seasons: Winter The crisp scrape of a shovel alerts your senses. Everything is different. Unexpected works of white powdery art are almost everywhere — some crafted by nature, others by whimsical students. Following a fresh snowfall, the University of Kansas’ campus takes on an almost magical majesty. And students flock out to explore the Hill under winter’s wonderful cloak, adding to their rich four-season experience as Jayhawks.
