Imagine walking down Jayhawk Boulevard. Look to your left. Look to your right. What do you
see? Within seconds, hundreds of faces whiz by.
Imagine sitting in the Underground, eating your lunch, reading the newspaper. You can hear
chatter in a few different languages, from Chinese to Portuguese, from Arabic to English.
All those people, regardless of gender identity, race, age, sexual orientation, religion, nationality
and any other demographic, are the people who make up the University of Kansas. No other
place in the world can elicit the experience that the University has to offer, and it’s because of
the people who are here.
Everyone who attends, works at or visits the University has a story to share. This section
showcases just a tiny slice of those stories. From a Rock Chalk Dancer to a rabbi,every person
has a different perspective based on his or her life experiences. Keon Stowers, for example,
plays football and will celebrate his son’s first birthday in May, while Bakary Suso builds health
centers in Africa.
Tomorrow when you’re sitting on the bus with your headphones on, take them off and talk to the
people next to you. They have stories to tell.
