After Chancellor vetoes bill, students plan to push for Multicultural Student Government

Faces were somber and
comments tense in the Big
12 Room Wednesday night
after leaders of Multicultural Student Government
announced that the Student
Senate proposal to fund and
approve the group had been
vetoed by Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little.
At a second MSG forum
Wednesday night, Katherine Rainey, a leader of the
group, said the Chancellor
sent out an email earlier
that day explaining why she
had vetoed the government.
In the email, Gray-Little
said the MSG can not exist
because of problems within
the University Senate code.
"Current
University
Code does not allow the
existence of multiple independent groups representing a constituent group
(students, faculty or staff)
within University Senate,"
the email read.
The Chancellor also

stated that conflict arises
with representation on the
Board of Regents. According to Kansas statute 743229, each regent university is allowed one student
government representative
at the state level.
In wrapping up the
email, Gray-Little said she
has her own personal reasons for vetoing the Multicultural Student Government.
"I believe that the independent student government proposed in the document sent to University
Senate is not an optimal
way to achieve the goals we
have for diversity and inclusion at the university and,
indeed, may lead to greater
divisiveness," she wrote.
With the disapproval
from the Chancellor, Rainey said the MSG will face
problems, but it is not going
to quit.
"We are going to continue to fight for this because
we believe this is important.
There are way too many

students and organizations
that believe in this and that
support this. We've gone
through so many steps already where we’re not going
to let this go," Rainey said.
Rainey said the group
has reached out to the
Chancellor multiple times
this year, but has not had
any meeting with Gray-Little. She said they hope they
can meet to discuss and
reinstate funding for the
MSG.
"We do believe that if we
continue to push for this
and students continue to
show that they support this
and they want this and they
need this, that we can get
that resolved and continue
to move through the channels," Rainey said.
The group has been the
center of many University
conversations since it was
approved by Student Senate on March 9, making it
the first of its kind in the
nation. Advocates said the
purpose of the group is to
center the needs of multi-

cultural students that do
not receive enough attention at the University.

I’m tired of people
coming up with all
sort of objections
about code, about
policies, to get in
the way of doing
things that are
right.”

Clarence Lange

co-chair of the DEI
Advisory Group

Trinity Carpenter, a junior from Ottawa, Kan. and
leader of the MSG, said she
thinks the veto shows disregards for the needs of its
students.
“At this point I feel like
the University has not taken
the advice of their students
or others,” Carpenter said.
Last Friday, the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Advisory Group released
their list of recommenda-

tions, which included recognition and support of the
MSG as well as a critical review of student governance
at the University.
"The MSG campaign
symbolizes a deep sense of
alienation from the Student
Senate among KU students
of color; it also speaks to a
general crisis in the functioning of student governance," the report read.
“For many years, the KU
Student Senate has been
criticized for its exclusivity
and Greek life-centeredness. Although power has
shifted in rare instances, it
generally has been retained
by a small group of students, to the detriment of
the larger student body.”
At the forum Wednesday
night, Clarence Lang, cochair of the DEI Advisory
Group, said he thinks the
decision to veto the MSG is
"institutional racism" and
that the Chancellor "fully
recognizes" the inequalities
in student governance at
the University.

"This is not what you do
at an institution, if you argue on the one hand that
you value diversity, equity
and inclusion, and speaking
personally, I’m tired of people coming up with all sort
of objections about code,
about policies, to get in the
way of doing things that are
right," Lang said. "If there
is a will to do things, we can
find the way."
Rainey said the MSG
will continue as planned
by reaching out to students, receiving feedback
and holding workshops in
the summer. She said she
hopes to continue to make
MSG a vocal presence on
campus, and that the group
has no intentions of slowing
down.
"We’re going to fight for
this until something happens," she said.
The Chancellor's office
could not be reached for
comment.

Moore Reading Room
struggles to stay afloat
SAMANTHA SEXTON
@sambiscuit

With KU Libraries
recently losing access to
a number of databases
and journals, it is unsurprising to hear that one
of the largest department reading rooms on
campus, Moore Reading
Room in Smith Hall,
has barely been keeping
afloat this past academic
year. Since August, the
reading room has been
relying on a handful of
dedicated students to
keep its doors open. But
that may not be enough,
Daniel Stevenson, chair
and professor of the Department of Religious
Studies, said.
“The students who are
working in the reading
room are those that were
previously trained by
our former librarian and
archivist who left before
the fall semester,” Stevenson said. “We don’t
have the resources to
hire a new archivist and
without a new archivist,
we can’t train new stu-

dents to take over after
our current volunteers
have all graduated.”
Thankfully, Stevenson said, only one of the
student workers will be
graduating this May. But
he said this will mean
the room will be functioning at an even lower
level.
“There’s no way to
keep the doors open
throughout the day,”
Stevenson said. “We’ve
been lucky that the students we have now have
had schedules that allow
for them to keep it open
most of the day, but
there will be hours when
they are all in class or at
other extracurriculars.”
He said current students do not have a set
schedule, meaning the
reading room hours vary
and the students are not
qualified to train other
students.
Timothy Miller, a
professor of religious
studies, said the room is
important not only because of what it brings to
the community, but be-

cause of its history with
the University as well.
“The Moore Reading
Room has over a hundred years of collections
of knowledge that you
could not find in any
other library; certainly
not in any other library
in Lawrence,” he said.
Miller said that he
does not know why there
has been a freeze on the
hiring of a new archivist,
as finances are not the
issue.
“The school has budgeted for a full time librarian but we’ve not
been allowed to find
one,” Miller said. “We
have the necessary funds
but we’ve been told that
budget cuts will not allow for one.”
Stevenson said that
he pleaded with the administration to have a
new librarian appointed, but was told to wait
given the University’s
financial issues.

Visual art student Miguel Calderon, a senior from Peru, has begun an art intervention to spur conversation about
the gun laws on campus.

Senior confronts campus gun
policy with ‘art intervention’
VICKY DÍAZ-CAMACHO
@vickyd_c

Miguel Calderon, a senior Fulbright student
from Peru, is a familiar
face on campus. His infectious, wide smile has
greeted many students
in the food court at the
Underground, where he
works part-time.
He has tried on a couple

of different hats throughout his undergraduate
career, from computer
science, to acting to film.
Even though he came to
the University to study
engineering, he said it
“just wasn't for me.” He
switched his major from
computer science to visual
arts.
“Art has a lot of social
meaning for me,” he said.

Most recently, this social meaning has prompted the senior to do what he
calls an “art intervention”
on the gun laws that allow
open carry on campus and
will be effective next year.
For four nights, he will
shine projections of student’s reactions on the

walls of campus buildings.
He started a Facebook
and Twitter account called
GunsNHawks one week
ago. On both accounts he
asks the University community to reply to questions about gun laws and
how it will affect them. In
the first two days, 15 people responded on Twitter
and 10 people stopped to
talk to him about the comments shone on the walls.
One question sent on
the first night was, “How
safe will you feel once guns
are allowed on campus?”
In theory, his project
is an attempt to stir conversation. In practice, the
project is Calderon lugging
around his laptop and a
rented projector to shine
tweets on the walls of
campus buildings for four
nights.
Throughout the event,
he will share photos of the
projections and replies
on social media with the
hashtag #GunsNHawks.
“I’m expecting someone coming and making
me stop since I’m showing
comments about a controversial topic,” he said the
first night of the project.
“But I plan on doing it until they stop me.”
His project started
Monday and is slated to
end Thursday. He started the art intervention at
Daisy Hill and will end the
performance at Anschutz
library. Calderon said he
is interested to see what
others have to say and how
they will react to this intervention.
This makes sense, he
said, because to be an
artist he has to touch on
many different subjects.
Art helps illuminate issues that affect the general
public, he said. Benjamin
Rosenthal, his instructor
and assistant professor
of expanded media at the
University agrees.
Rosenthal met Calderon
two years ago when he enrolled in his Fundamentals
of Expanded Media course
and has worked with him

since. Recently, Rosenthal
took Calderon to Chicago
— one of Calderon’s dream
cities — with him as a production assistant for a performance.
“[It] was an exciting
evolution both in my interaction with him and in his
transition from student
to professional,” Rosenthal said. “Miguel’s work
probes a range of issues
that vary from personal to
socially oriented.”
Because Miguel’s close
with his mother, he is
inspired by her warmth
and openness with those
around her, he said. For
that reason, he wanted to
work where he could help
others, too.
This semester, Calderon is an intern at Van
Go, a non-profit organization in Lawrence that employs at-risk youth from
different high schools in
the area. Calderon supervises teens who are painting a mural for the group’s
20th anniversary. He said
he’d like to continue this
fusion of art and social and
political issues.
“It is cool because I feel
like I’m part of something
that is using art and that is
helping people,” Calderon
said. “And I want to continue that.”
When he first came to
the University, he majored
in computer science but
grew bored. He says the
field didn’t click with him.
He wanted to interact
with more people and engage on a more personal
level. His upbringing had
a part to play in all of this.
As a result of moving to
and from different cities
at a young age, he said he
experienced a blend of cultures and aesthetics.
“Being raised in Madrid
and in Lima — those are
huge cities and they are
noisy and a lot of people
from different cultures and
different backgrounds, I
love that,” he said. “I love
the noise.”
He added: “I love seeing that happen and I love
that wherever I am there
is something always in-

teresting within walking
distance. That’s always in
Lima and in Madrid.”
Calderon is an inquisitive student. He’s talkative in classes, eager to
ask questions or ready to
answer if called upon by a
professor; he is definitely
not shy.
He was born in Madrid. When he was six,
Calderon, his one-year-old
sister and mother returned
to Lima, Peru where his
father worked. For his first
six years, his mother, Rita
Mejia, who was a nurse,
raised him and his sister.
“Solíamos hacer todo
juntos desde las compras hasta los paseos al
campo,” his mother said.
Translated, this means:
“We used to do everything
together, from shopping to
field trips.”
She said he was a charismatic and caring child,
particularly when his sister was born.
His mother’s sisters
also helped raise them
since his father was away.
He said they played a large
part in showing him how
to empathize.
“[My mom] is easily the
most important person in
my life, without a doubt,”
Calderon said.
But he said his sister
holds a special place in his
heart. She also keeps him
motivated.

Vicky Diaz-Camacho/KANSAN
Visual art student Miguel Calderon, a senior from Peru, has begun an art
intervention to spur conversation about the gun laws on campus.

“Since I [was] little, my
brother has always been
one of the most influential persons in my life,” his
16-year-old sister Alejandra Calderon said. “He is
my perfect example [for]
what the life really means:
An internal balance between your priorities, like
job or study with your social life, in order to be happy despite the problems.”
He said his love for
the electricity of a big city
spurs his interest to move
to a big city after graduation. Right now, he’s
thinking about Chicago.
He has one year after he
graduates to stay in the
U.S. and although he likes
Lawrence, he said a big
city gives him the spark
he needs. His plans after
graduation are to travel to

big cities like New York or
go back to Chicago until
his school visa expires.
“Sometimes I feel tired
but then I think in 20
years I’m going to be 41
and I’m going to regret not
doing as much as I could,”
he said. “That thought really pushes me.”

to within the administration wants to see this
room out of commission,”
Stevenson said. “The University has had to make
some really difficult calls
and this is just one of
them.”
Despite the fact that
the Department of Religious Studies has the necessary funds to hire a new
archivist, those funds
have come from donations from KU Endowment. This means that it
would require a certified
staff member to utilize
the money, namely, an
archivist.

The school has
budgeted for a full
time librarian, but
we’ve
not
been
allowed to find one.”
Timothy Miller
professor of religious studies

“It’s a shame that we
have all this money that
we cannot touch because
we don’t have the proper staff,” Stevenson said.
“This money has come
from donations from all
over Kansas. The departments on campus are told
to find sustainable funds
outside of the campus,
which is what we have.
It’s the funds from inside
the campus that aren’t allowing us to use them.”
Stevenson said that
there is a great deal that
has not only been halted, but cut back from altogether because of this

budget cut.
“We can’t order new
books, we can’t grow our
collection and we can’t
go ahead with an electronic database initiative
that was well underway
before we lost our archivist,” Stevenson said.
“There’s a professor here
who has his students
write on the histories of
certain religious events
or denominations in Kansas and each year those
papers have been placed
within our reading room
for public use. Without
a librarian, those papers
cannot properly be filed
and are now just being
held onto until we can use
them.”
Miller said that no longer being able to acquire
books or journals has
definitely hurt both his
research and his ability
to teach.
“I love being able to
tell students to go to the
reading room and find
certain resources that I
know they wouldn’t be
able to find anywhere
else,” Miller said. “This
room is a good community service and the history of the room and what
it has to offer is reason
enough to want to restore
it to its full functioning.”
Miller also said the
stained glass windows
make the reading room
unique and that it is a
treasure on campus that
deserves to be preserved.
“The statue of Moses kneeling before the
stained glass windows
calls back to the Biblical
story of Moses and the
burning bush,” Miller
said. “We don’t see it too

often anymore, but that
is the seal of the University and a symbol for educational enlightenment.
For over a hundred years
we’ve been collecting,
preserving and allowing

the community to learn
from our vast resources
here, and that shouldn’t
change now.”

New on-campus parking changes will limit
parking options for students next year
TANNER HASSELL
@thassell17

N

ext year, University
students may find
parking on campus to be more limited. KU
Parking will eliminate 217
on-campus parking spots
for next year, Donna Hultine, director of KU Parking
and Transit, said.
Assistant Director of KU
Parking and Transit Danny
Kaiser said a lot is still up
in the air, as the parking
system is about to undergo
some major changes.
Hultine said there were
6,279 yellow parking spaces available on both main
and West Campus. Of the
over 6,000 spots, 3,321 are
located on main campus.
Hultine said many of these
spots will not be available
for the fall 2016 semester,
due to construction occurring throughout campus.
“We will lose 217 spaces
in lot 72 to construction,”
Hultine said. “The parking situation will get a little more crowded with the
construction. Not only will
we lose yellow lot spots,
but residential parking at
Jawhawker Towers and at
Stauffer Place will also be affected by the Central District
construction. We’ve already
lost most of the Stauffer
Place parking to construction this year, and Towers
parking is down to 317.”
Hultine said lot 90 by the
Ambler Recreation Center,
which is one of the more

popular parking options for
off-campus students, will
likely become even more
crowded with the construction.
“The preference seems to
be lot 90. We have reports
of students just circling and
circling trying to find a spot.
I’m afraid that might get a
little worse with the changes
going on,” Hultine said.
Freshman Murphy Leinbach from Mission Hills
said the parking situation
on campus has been pretty
rough during his first year at
the University.
“It’s hard to get a spot
even after the restricted times,” Leinbach said.
“Sometimes it feels like it’s
almost impossible to get a
spot."
Students have spent up
to 30 minutes looking for
parking in lot 90, according
to the KU Parking website.
Hultine said the parking designation system will
change drastically for next
school year in an attempt
to alleviate some of parking
woes students are experiencing.
“Parking will be assigned
by areas for next year,” Hultine said. “For example, lot
90 will be designated as its
own area. Lots around the
Stadium and Allen Fieldhouse will also be separate
areas.”
Hultine said students
will be able to purchase a
pass for these different areas
until the areas are sold out.
“We’ll set a certain num-

Lot 90 will undergo changes due to construction.

ber of permits for each area.
Once a lot is sold out that
option will not be available,”
Hultine said. “We’re doing
this to try and combat the issues students have had with
driving around looking for
spots. We hope this system
will help spread out parking
a little bit for off-campus
students.”
Hultine said parking
passes for on-campus students will be issued through
a lottery system, as it has
been for the last couple of

years.
“This year and the year
prior we had to do residential parking through a
lottery because of construction,” Hultine said. “Everybody will be presented with
a parking option, even if it’s
not right next to their residential hall.”
On the other hand,
off-campus freshman will
only be able to park in Park
and Ride lots on west campus.
“It certainly doesn’t make

me happy that we have to do
that. We’ve just lost so much
parking, and we’ll only lose
more,” Hultine said.
For students set on getting a parking pass next
year, Hultine recommends
looking into it during the
summer.
“Parking passes are available on July 1 every year,”
Hultine said. “The rates for
next year aren’t set in stone
at the moment, but an email
will go out to the community
before passes are available.”

Kaiser said students in
search of the cheapest option should look into the
Park and Ride lots on West
Campus.
For incoming students,
Hultine said not bringing a
car would be the easiest option.
“We have an excellent
bus system. If you can make
it work for you that is really your best option at this
point,” Hultine said.

Burbank: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Report
recommendations require action, not ‘conversation’

JESSE BURBANK
@JBurbank1

L

ast week, the Diversity,
Equity, and Inclusion
(DEI) Advisory Group
issued a report detailing its
recommendations for making the University a more
open and inclusive institution.
The report begins powerfully, asserting, “The lack
of diversity, equity and inclusion at the University is
not the result of a lack of
information and knowledge

and freedom
That feeling when
you complete your
final homework

institutional injustice, while
at the same time taking no
action on them. They allow
these issues to slip silently below the surface once
again, leaving them to fester
for future years.
Conversation alone does
nothing to solve the problem. It does nothing to address radically higher dropout rates among minority
students, with only 50.4 percent of black freshmen entering in fall 2014 remaining
here after three semesters,
mentioned in the report. It
cannot change the fact that
less than 7 percent of full
professors at the University
are Hispanic or black.
Conversation will not fix
this.
Jonathan Kozol writes in
his book “Savage Inequalities” of how difficult it is to
change inequitable educational institutions through
simple public discourse. He

remarks, “Even the most
thorough exposition of the
facts within the major organs of the press is neutralized too frequently by context and a predilection for
the type of grayish language
that denies the possibilities
for indignations. Facts are
cited. Editorials are written.
Five years later, the same
facts are cited again. There
is no sense of moral urgency; and nothing changes.”

Conversation
alone does
nothing to solve
the problem. It
does nothing
to address
radically higher
dropout rates
among minority
students.”

This report must provide us with our own sense
of moral urgency. The University can implement many
of the report’s recommendations quickly, like adding
courses related to equity and
inclusion to the KU CORE
beyond Goal 4, or expanding hardship funds through
Endowment for first-generation, low socioeconomic
status students. Others are
long-term goals to begin
working toward now, like
seeking out diverse faculty
and targeting student needs.
The DEI report’s recommendations cannot languish
in conversation. This school
year has been full of conversations about these issues.
It’s now time to act.

about existing concerns and

group.”
This report has already
elicited many conversations
about how to correct institutional injustice, bring more
voices to the table and fix
issues that have festered for
decades. But it’s important
that we don’t let “conversation” excuse the University from actually acting on
these recommendations.

death is still undetermined.
Regardless, Prince’s tragic

death serves as a high-profile reminder of the dangers
of pain killers and other opioid prescription drugs.
Many people, even some
who are prescribed opioid
medication, are unaware of
how dangerously addictive
opioids are. Without the
right supervision and education, prescriptions for
opioids may have adverse
effects on a person’s well-being. Addressing America’s
addiction to opioids must
begin with education about
the potential effects that
come with even legally prescribed opioids.
Most opioid prescriptions are associated with
treatment of chronic pain.
Opioids are a form of narcotic pain medication which
include OxyContin, Percocet, morphine and the illegal
drug heroin. From 2000
to 2014, the rate of opioid
overdose deaths increased
by 200 percent, according
to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2014, 61 percent of
U.S. drug overdose deaths

involved opioids.
The rise has been attributed, in part, to the increase in prescriptions for
opioid painkillers. Prince’s
death highlights the need
to push doctors to prescribe
less addictive and safer
painkillers instead of proliferating the over-prescription of opioid medication.
It is no secret that opioid
addiction has become an epidemic in the United States.
The solution to this problem
must begin at the source.
Less overdoses will only result from more responsible
dissemination and oversight
of opioid prescriptions.
Recently, the CDC issued
new guidelines that call for
doctors to try less addictive
painkillers, such as aspirin
and ibuprofen, before prescribing opioids to patients.
The guidelines, which are
not mandatory, recommend
that opioids be prescribed
mainly for short-term pain
episodes of three to seven
days.
There is no reason not to
mandate these new guide-

lines. This crisis doesn't discriminate.
“It touches everybody —
men and women, young and
old, rich and poor; urban,
suburban, and rural alike,"
President Barack Obama
wrote about opioids in a
statement published by the
Omaha World-Herald.
We must address this
epidemic like we would any
other disease. This means
implementing
effective
regulation, prevention and
treatment. Implementing
safer use of opioids will begin with education about the
dangers of the drugs.
The Obama administration has recognized and
begun to address this epidemic. Noting that more
Americans now die from
drug overdoses than those
who die in car accidents,
Obama explains opioid addiction is a problem that
may very well hit close to
home for far too many.
“This is a crisis that could
touch any of us. These kids
are our kids. These folks are
our parents, our brothers

and sisters, our neighbors
and friends” writes Obama.
“We should treat them that
way. We should take on this
issue for their sake. If we
do that, we'll not only help
our loved ones but also help
strengthen our families, our
community and our country.”
Americans need to open
their eyes to the serious and
pressing nature of opioid
addiction and overdose in
our country. Only by educating people about the
problem will more people
be motivated to fight for the
solution. Prince’s death was
an undeniable tragedy, but
we can make it even more
meaningful by using the
popularity of the music legend to propagate awareness
of the dangers associated
with opioids.

Sharp 9 guitarist and vocalist Joel Bonner performs during a show at the Jazzhaus in April. The eclectic eight-piece funk band’s big sound can jump from straight funk to soul to hip-hop.

The eclectic, eight-part funk band Sharp 9
CHRISTIAN HARDY
@ByHardy

T

he guitar chord E7
Sharp 9, to many, encompasses the entire
blues scale. But, in that
single chord, there are
fragments of several other
genres — rock, jazz, funk
and disco.
The chord was used by
the Isley Brothers, then Jimi
Hendrix — whom the chord
has since been named for
— and Pink Floyd, among
others, to add some funk to
a band’s sound.
The
Lawrence-based
band Sharp 9, with its oftfunk-driven sounds, which
can jump off to smooth
jazz instantaneously, then,
is aptly named. The broadbased collection of the
band’s eight members make
up one of the biggest and
rangiest sounds of any band
in Lawrence.
“It’s a very funky voiced
chord,” said Joel Bonner, guitarist and vocalist
for Sharp 9 who graduated from the University in
2014. “We’re just a very
eclectic group of all the subgenres that really sprouted
out of the jazz, soul and
blues movements in America, and funk is a huge one.”
When Rayyan Kamal,
the band’s trumpeter, and
Tim Clark, the band’s key-

boardist, started the band
in 2012, the nine in the
name was not supposed to
dictate how many people
were in the band. But more
band members shuffled in
than out, with Kamal and
Clark heading the band.
But behind those two,
who started the band while
attending the University,
are six others to make up
the group of eight current
members: Bonner, drummer K.R. Azad, bass player
Anthony Edmonson, saxophonist Leslie Butsch, and
vocalists Nadia Imafidon
and Nate Nickel.
That number of members alone has made the
band unique, but it’s also
created a family-like dynamic which has spurned
what appears like unhinged,
free-flowing creativity and
collaboration.
“The dynamic of our
group is different; it’s a
very nonjudgemental space
and we’re all very intentional about how we treat
each other,” Imafidon said.
“Playing music with people
changes your relationship
entirely. It just makes you
closer. You really become a
family with these people because you’re sharing a lot of
vulnerable moments with
them with your instrument
or your voice.”
The huge sound from

those eight current members is what draws people into Sharp 9 at shows,
which the band tries to play
once a month. But with
eight members, much of
what the band does is just
that: trial.

Playing music
with people
changes your
relationship
entirely. It just
makes you
closer. You really
become a family
with these people
because you’re
sharing a lot
of vulnerable
moments with
them.”
Nadia Imafidon
vocalist

When Bonner joined
shortly after the band started in 2012, the band had
about a dozen songs to rely
upon. Now, with a hoist
of stuff written mostly by
Clark and Kamal, as well as
some covers, the band has
a setlist of about 25 songs.
Some remain unwritten,
though, from solos to

what Imafidon says is “improv.”
And if it’s not trial in
music, it’s trial in day-today functioning. With eight
members, weekend rehearsals don’t always work
for everyone. Even more
difficult has been setting up
a time to record without interference.
To Bonner, the group’s
size is what makes it so dynamic, but it's also its biggest crux.
“The most consistent
thing I ever hear after
shows is, ‘You guys are so
cool, I had so much fun.
Where can I buy a record?’
And we have to break their
hearts every time and tell
them, ‘We don’t have anything yet,’” Bonner said.
“It just hasn’t been in the
cards, for whatever reason.”
But now, in a sense, the
pressure is on. Not because
people at shows have clamored for a record — though,
that surely encourages the
band — but because the
clock may be winding down
on the band.
Kamal plans to leave for
medical school in Kansas
City in July; Azzad plans to
go to Kansas City as well.
Clark also plans on leaving
town soon.
For a band composed
almost entirely of “townies”
— Kamal, Bonner, Edmonson, Imafidon and Clark

went to high school together at Lawrence Free State
— it will be the separation
between towns that will pull
them apart.
That’s something Imafidon is just beginning to
realize as the band is slated
to play its last shows this
summer.
“It doesn’t feel real; I’m
pretty much in denial,”
Imafidon said. “It’ll just
be weird. These are all of
my best friends now, and
they’ve done so much for
me — we’ve done so much
for each other.”
So, with a long setlist
and family-like camaraderie, one thing is left on the
table: recording songs. But
it's not for fans — which the
band has almost 500 of on
its Facebook page — but
for themselves to look back
on and remember Sharp 9:
the funky, all-encompassing eight-man (sometimes
more, sometimes less)
band.
“Our band is so weird; I
don’t even understand it,”
Imafidon said. “Logistically, we could record separately […] but that’s just not
our vibe. We want to record
together; we want to record
live in the studio. We want
to do everything together.”

Lopeeta Tawde, a graduate student from Mumbai, is working on her MFA in metals and jewelry.

Graduate student creates
science-inspired jewelry
BRIANNA CHILDERS

hen
Lopeeta
Tawde was in
high
school,
she loved science, but
she also enjoyed drawing
what she saw through the
microscope: microscopic
plants, cells and animals.
What Tawde probably
didn't know is that some
years later her work in high
school would inspire her to
make unique silicon and
metal jewelry pieces based
on those microorganisms
she saw in the microscope.
Now a graduate student
studying
metals
and
jewelry at the University,
she grew up in Mumbai,
and while she knew she
had a love for science and
a passion for art, she wasn’t
quite sure how to pursue
it. So, she completed her
undergraduate degree at
Sir Jamsetjee Jeejebhoy
School of Art in Mumbai
and earned a degree in
metalworks.
Because she didn’t meet
the criteria for admittance
to the University right
away, she said she went to
Oklahoma State University
to build up her portfolio
and received a bachelor's

degree in metalsmithing
and jewelry.
Tawde said one thing
that brought her to the
University
was
Gina
Westergard,
associate
professor of metalsmithing
and jewelry and associate
chair of the Department
of Visual Art. Tawde was
familiar with her work and
had seen it previously.
Westergard said what
she finds unique about
Tawde’s work is that instead
of just being inspired by
a creature or organism,
she goes beyond that and
captures the qualities of
something that is living and
mysterious.
“Her work is very
dynamic, and it’s magical
because it glows and has
this movement to it,”
Westergard said. “It can
be unpredictable, and you
don’t really know what to
expect when you first look
at it.”
Tawde said originally
she was more interested
in fabricating something
in the structure of a
microorganism,
but
liked the concept of bioorganisms because they
glow in the dark with a
blacklight. All of her pieces
glow in the dark and some
of them contain motion-

sensors.
She said the process of
creating a piece can take
four hours to a week, and all
of the pieces are wearable
and include necklaces,
rings and brooches.
“I want people to be
curious what is in the piece
and really feel all of the
pieces because they are
fun and whimsical,” Tawde
said. “They have this quality
where you really want to
pick it up and touch it.”
Westergard said Tawde
has grown tremendously,
and she has never had a
student work with glowin-the-dark materials and
different types of lighting.
“I’m attracted to
someone who can make
poetry out of the physical

and

said.

Selfish (feat. Rodney Tenor) — Ashley Koett

I’ve always loved Ashley
Koett; her voice, instrumentation and melodies
have culminated to make
some beautiful tracks early
in her career. But here, with
a verse from Brockhampton comrade Rodney Tenor
and some production from
Texas producer Reverse,

she takes a huge leap. For
most of the song, especially
the first verse, you can feel
Koett’s voice grooving and
riding along with the jazzy
instrumental. The transition to a smooth, dense
verse from Tenor is executed well both instrumentally
and vocally before Koett

2

Ashley Koett takes a leap,
Toni Bean’s single and a new
Monte Booker beat

finishes the track with more
dazzling vocals. It’s no surprise that Koett has continued to grow as an artist over
the last few months, but the
impeccable execution on
this track shows that she
has made more significant
progress than I had even
imagined.

16 — Toni Bean

I first learned of Toni, a
rapper from Lexington, Ky.,
on some early Jakob Green
tracks which are now defunct. And on those tracks,
Toni stood out with his slick
flow and confident bars.

Now, with his first solo effort, nothing is much different. Toni comes through
with strong verses over a
wispy, elusive beat from
Nemesis Beats. Now, this
track isn’t perfect — it lacks

a strong hook presence, or
much beyond what’s on the
surface, as far as lyrics go —
but it shows what Toni can
do. He’s got plenty of room,
and time, to grow. This is
the start.

This has been a semester with new Kanye West,
Beyoncé, Rihanna and Kendrick Lamar albums —
four of the biggest music powerhouses in the United
States right now.
Still, though, the lowkey music scene is alive and
well. With spring in full swing, I've found myself listening to a lot of guitar and acoustic-driven tracks,
but I found a good mix to include in the Lowkey Listens for May, from a jazz hit from Ashley Koett, to
a bouncy hip-hop joint produced by Monte Booker.

It's all here.

I tend to gravitate toward
bedroom-recorded tracks
when it comes to acoustic
songs on SoundCloud, just
because they feel raw and

adds a bit to the songs

beat changes over the last
minute or so of the track,

It steals the show on this

sentiment.

St. Louis rapper who has

his raps with the perfect

with Smino’s playful lyricism. It’s good to see Booker continuing to gain some

Daily Debate

SPORTS

Did Laremy Tunsil drop too
far in the NFL draft?

YES

MIKE MAICKE
@MJ_Maicke

The NFL draft has come
and gone, but not without
controversy. And, for the first
time in recent memory, the
drama surrounds an offensive tackle.
It’s the ultimate position
of anonymity. Typically, if
you’re an offensive tackle and
a household name, you’re
known by fans for the copious
amounts of crucial holding
penalties, not for your outstanding play.
Offensive linemen are
always going to be underappreciated despite good — and
important — play.
However, there's an exception to that rule this year.
The name Laremy Tunsil is
now known across the nation.
But no, it’s not for a pivotal
block or an effective pre-snap
audible at the line.
For those of you who
avoid the NFL draft like the
plague (I’m not blaming you
by the way; it’s a complete
bore), Tunsil was a top draft
prospect from Ole Miss who
was expected to be taken very
early, right around the top
five.
But then came the event
that would change his draft
positioning and reputation
forever.
A video was leaked that
appeared to show Tunsil
smoking marijuana from a

bong through a gas mask moments before the beginning of
the NFL draft. On top of that,
Tunsil's Instagram was allegedly hacked, posting what
appeared to be screen shots of
text messages between Tunsil
and an Ole Miss staff member, indicating that Tunsil
was given financial benefits at
Ole Miss.
Tunsil then dropped and
dropped far, all the way to the
Miami Dolphins with the 13th
pick.
Now excuse the ferocity
of my take, but the hypocrisy
of these teams that passed on
Tunsil and those who condemn him is truly appalling.
Are we really going to sit
here and attempt to judge
Tunsil like this? I know, I
know; how dare a young man
attempt to change his family’s
life and help his mother out
with finances. What a complete crime.
That judgment is essentially coming from people of
completely different backgrounds who have no idea
what life is like for some of
these athletes whose only escape is professional sports.
Their only way to give their
family hope for a better future comes with football or
basketball.
And please, stop the presses that he received financial
benefits. For all the naïve
collegiate sports fans, let
me lay down some truth for

you about competitive D-I
sports (essentially targeting
football and basketball):
Most consistently competitive programs either
break NCAA rules, find
ways to circumvent them or
lean right up against them
in one way or another in order to get the top players to
their university.
“But, wait, my team...”
No, stop it. Your team
does it too.
This isn’t an attack on
players or the coaches that
do give out these benefits.
Most of the time these benefits are helping a poor family low on their finances.
This is an attack on the
horrible hypocrites who are
backward in their expectations of these athletes — the
same backward hypocrites
that still, in today’s age with
recreational marijuana being legalized in multiple
states, think that smoking
pot and crippling drug addiction are the same thing.
I’m rooting for you, Tunsil; you had a rotten thing
happen to you, and it’s been
blown up by the takes of
people who could never picture a situation like yours.
It’s time for everyone
to grow the hell up and get
real, and I’m not talking to
you, Laremy.

EVAN RIGGS

@EvanRiggsUDK

With the various incidents from players like
Ray Rice, Greg Hardy and
Johnny Manziel — not
to compare them other
than in the existence of
the incidents — over the
last year and a half, NFL
teams are more wary of
problems off the field
than ever before.
That was on full display last Thursday during
the NFL draft.
Just minutes before
the draft, a video that
appeared to show offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil smoking marijuana
from a bong surfaced on
his Twitter. Tunsil was
expected to be a top five
pick, but nobody was willing to take a chance on
him until the Miami Dolphins, who held the 13th
pick in the draft.
That slide cost him
around $7 million, according to reports from
ESPN, and I have no
problem with that. In
fact, I think his slide was
justified.
Rest assured, Tunsil is
far from the only player in
the 2016 NFL draft who
has smoked marijuana.
Heck, it's possible this is a
very common occurrence
across the entire NFL.
The fact is that Tunsil already has a list of
question marks thanks to

things other than football,
and this was just the last
straw.
I have no issue with
the Instagram photos that
claim that he was asking
his Ole Miss coaches for financial help for him and his
mother, and I don’t think
any NFL team did either.
That incident had no impact on his fall in the draft
and neither did accepting
impermissible benefits in
2014. Improper benefits
aren’t a concern for an NFL
team because they don’t exist anywhere but the NCAA.
But there are other incidents that should raise eyebrows.
Last December, Ole
Miss defensive end Robert Nkemdiche fell from
a fourth-story hotel window and was charged with
possession of marijuana.
Nkemdiche claimed that
Tunsil was present during
interviews related to the incident.
A week before the draft,
Lindsey Miller — Tunsil’s
stepfather — filed a lawsuit
against Tunsil and alleged
a physical attack by Tunsil.
Both men filed domestic violence charges against one
another.
There are a lot of unanswered questions here, but
I can’t say I blame an NFL
team for not wanting to inherit this situation.
The Baltimore Ravens
and
Tennessee
Titans
were two teams that many

thought would take Tunsil,
but they elected to go with
Ronnie Stanley and Jack
Conklin, two offensive tackles with fewer red flags.
In the NFL, if your talent
outweighs your character
issues, there will always
be a team willing to take a
chance on you.
Tunsil is definitely the
most talented offensive
tackle of those three. In
fact, I would argue Tunsil
has the talent to be a fantastic NFL player. When
he was on the field at Ole
Miss, he only allowed two
sacks while playing against
NFL-caliber defensive linemen every week in the SEC.
The problem was Stanley and Conklin are no
slouches. They both have
the potential to be very
good NFL players with far
less baggage off the field.
It would be a different
situation if Tunsil had no
incidents or character concerns prior to this video.
But in this case, the video
was the last straw.
In today’s NFL, where
all it takes is one poor decision by a player to create
a PR nightmare, I probably
wouldn’t risk something as
valuable as a top-10 pick on
Tunsil either.
So I can’t blame any of
the 12 teams that passed on
Tunsil for playing it safe.

Kansas tennis nabs spot in NCAA championships

I

n the midst of one of the
best seasons in program
history, Kansas tennis
notched another in a long
line of accolades on Tuesday, making the NCAA
Women's Tennis Championships for the first time
in 17 years.
After being knocked out
of the Big 12 tournament
by Oklahoma State, Kansas finished the year at 177. The team finished 6-3 in
conference play, earning
them a spot in the postseason tournament.
"It is really exciting,"
senior Maria Jose Cardona said in a KU Athletics
release. "This is the first
time we've made it to the
NCAA
[championships]
since I've been here, so it's

"Evan wanted to win
as badly as any kid I ever
coached," Law said.
The Kansas kid
Some might assume
Evan was granted a walkon spot at Kansas simply
because of his last name.
However, Self tells a different story.
Having known Evan for
nearly a decade before he
came to the University, Self
developed a personal relationship with him and knew
he fit the mold of someone
who could make an impact,
even if it wouldn't be during
games.
"In this situation, I knew
that I wanted Evan," Self
said. "I thought he was a
plenty good enough player
to help us in practice [...]
Certainly I knew he was the
type of kid that we wanted
in our program."
While appearing mostly

just amazing."

This is the first
time we’ve made
it to the NCAA
[championships]
since I’ve been
here, so it’s just
amazing.”
Maria Jose Cardona
Senior

Currently ranked No.
33 in the latest ITA standings, Kansas will play its
first tournament game
against UC Santa Barbara. With 10 days between
the selection show and the
match, that leaves plenty
of time for Kansas coach
Todd Chapman to scout
the opponent.

at the end of blowouts, Evan
did play in the first half of
games a couple times.
Most notably, in his
freshman season, Kansas
was struggling against Oregon State at Sprint Center.
With two minutes left in the
half and the game tied, Self
sent the team's two point
guards — Elijah Johnson
and Naadir Tharpe — to the
bench. Self had Evan handle the point guard duties
for the rest of the period.
Evan held his own in his
brief showing, as he did a
few years later on Senior
Day. Starting the game at
the two-guard spot, he battled with Iowa State's Matt
Thomas from the jump.
Even though Iowa State
coach Steve Prohm later
denied any emphasis to go
right at Evan, it seemed
like that was the gameplan.
Thomas demanded the ball
on the first few possessions

However, he mentioned
a unique insight that may
help Kansas in the long
run.
"I know they're a quality team," Kansas coach
Todd Chapman said of UC
Santa Barbara in the release. "I know some teams
who have played them this
year, so I'll definitely be
on the phone trying to get
some notes on them."
That first match at the
NCAA
championships
will take place May 13 at
12 p.m. It will be played
in the Hellman Tennis
Center in Berkeley, Calif.
Should the team advance,
it'll take on the winner of
the match between California, the top overall seed
in the tournament, and
Texas Rio Grande Valley

and took an ill-advised first
shot against Evan after a
host of dribble moves.
"It was really fun," Evan
said. "The last four years
definitely helped prepare
me to hang with Matt
Thomas, who's a great player. He hit a tough shot on
me, but I thought I did alright."
Throughout his time at
the University, Evan developed into a player that
looked like he belonged on
the court. With him in the
game, the Jayhawks outscored a Cyclones team that
was ranked in the top 25,
earning a four-seed in the
2016 NCAA tournament.
However, even more
than his development as a
player, Self complimented
Evan for the type of person
he was over the last four
years.
"He gets it. He's very
bright. He knows how to

NOW OPEN
IN LAWRENCE

be a part of the team," Self
said. "And [he's] obviously
a fun loving and great personality guy."
Now that he's done playing for Kansas, Evan's eyes
are on the future. He'll
leave the University with a
degree in sports management, leaving him open to a
few different careers.
Perhaps a future in
coaching could be in the
cards; Danny was certainly open to the idea, saying
he'd love for Evan to join
his staff.
However, no matter
where he goes, Evan feels
there's one thing that will
always define him, and it
was his answer to the question: "Who is Evan Manning?"
"He's a Jayhawk," Evan
said. "A Jayhawk for life."

The mark of a leader: With a difficult legacy
to follow, Evan Manning carved his own path
SCOTT CHASEN
@SChasenKU

Living up to a family name
isn’t always easy. Often times,
the albatross of wanting to
match those who came before
can put a person in an impossible situation.
For senior guard Evan
Manning, living up to what his
father did on the court would
be next to impossible. Danny
Manning, his father, is the
greatest living player in Kansas men's basketball history.
Danny ranks first all-time
in points and rebounds at
Kansas; he was the No. 1 overall pick in the 1988 NBA Draft
after leading the team to an
NCAA championship.
But Evan hasn't tried to be
his father. He’s done things his
own way, being the best teammate he can be and working
hard behind the scenes.
And even though they differ on the court, Danny and
Evan share a relationship that
embodies who they are as father and son.
"Everyone says, 'You're not

playing for your dad,' but really, I'm influenced by him so
much," Evan said. "[It's] what
he's taught me throughout
the years. Seeing his picture
just reminds me to stay the
course."
Early in his life, that course
took him all over the country.
Danny played on seven different NBA franchises all before
Evan turned 10.
Because of that, Evan never really had a home on the
road. He bounced around
from place to place, at least
until Danny accepted a job at
Kansas in 2003.
Lawrence became home
for the Manning family, but
for Evan, signs always pointed
to him coming to Kansas. As
he prepared to enter college,
even with Danny making a
move to become the coach at
Tulsa, the choice was simple.
"Evan had some opportunities to go to some lower-level schools to probably have a
more significant role," Danny
said. "But he said he always
wanted to be a Jayhawk, and
that's what it came down to."

For Evan, there was never
really one moment when he
was hooked. He was raised by
two parents who were Kansas
alumni, let alone a father who
was a Kansas legend.
However, he did remember one experience at a game
that really showed him how
special a place like Kansas
could be.
"We had GameDay here. I
had my dad's code and I snuck
in and sat front row right behind Jay Billas," Evan said. "It
was unbelievable."
A team-first mentality
You'd be hard pressed to
find someone on Kansas with
a negative thing to say about
Evan. Coach Bill Self lauds his
work ethic and attitude, and
the message is pretty much
universal across the board.
"Evan's always had a good
personality,"
sophomore
guard Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk
said. "He always tries to help
the young guys."
However, Evan isn't one
to sing his own praises. He
defers to his teammates and
coaches on what his true im-

pact is. Instead, he keeps his
head down and gives his all
every day without expecting
any grand reward.

He’s not only
one of the best
leaders, but one
of the best kids I
ever coached”
Chuck Law
Evan’s coach at Free State

That's really the only way
he's known to act. With a
name like Manning across
the back of his jersey, he has
a unique respect and appreciation for what it takes to be a
player at Kansas.
He certainly doesn't take
the opportunity lightly.
"You have to go hard in
practice out in the Fieldhouse
because whenever you look
up, you see all the names in
the rafters," he said. "They've
been here before; they've sacrificed so much for us [...] It's

built on them. You just have to
respect it and play for them."
But long before he was a
senior at Kansas, Evan exhibited those same qualities at
the high school level.
Playing varsity basketball
at Lawrence Free State for
two seasons, he quickly commanded the respect of his
teammates.
"He's not only one of the
best leaders, but one of the
best kids I ever coached,"
said Chuck Law, who coached
Evan at Free State.
Like any true leader, Evan
was at practice every single
day; he played a big role on
the court in wins, even setting
the single-season steals record at the high school.
But even when his numbers weren't the flashiest, he
was still out there on the floor
conveying messages from his
coach, picking guys up and
playing the way his coach
wanted him to.
Those traits were instilled
in him at a young age.
"He's a great kid. He's
a fun loving kid. He enjoys

life," Danny said. "But he understands when it's time to
work."
Like in college, Evan's high
school career didn't have a
storybook ending. Law recalled the team falling to
Olathe Northwest in Evan's final game, as he missed a shot
at the buzzer that bounced up
and off the rim.
But it was in moments like
those Evan exhibited his true
leadership quality. Law said
right after the game he spoke
with Evan about one subject
that had little to do with the
outcome and everything to do
with Evan's personality: being
courageous.
In defeat, Evan held himself accountable — maybe
too accountable. But in a high
pressure situation, it wasn't
about the final result. It was
that he had the confidence to
step up and take the shot with
the game on the line.

After a season on the bench, Jessica Washington
is ready to make a difference as a Jayhawk
SEAN COLLINS
@seanzie_3

The bass rumbled in
Allen Fieldhouse as Drake
and Future's "Scholarships"
played over the powerful
speakers. The Kansas Jayhawks lay on the baseline
stretching their legs with
the facilitation of the team
managers.
The team transitioned
from stretching to running
around screens for midrange jump shots, with everyone getting dozens of
shots in before the game.
Except for junior Jessica
Washington.
While Washington had
some of the most NCAA experience on the team, she
was sidelined all season because of her transfer from
the University of North
Carolina.
Watching
from
the
bench, frustration came often for Washington.
"That was the toughest
year of my life honestly, not
just because I was sitting
out but also because it was
for something I love to do,"
Washington said. "I don't
know anything different
so I had to find myself and
learn how to do what I love
to do in a different way."
This year, Kansas women's basketball coach Bran-

don Schneider took over a
young team that struggled
to catch its footing. Not
having a savvy player such
as Washington made it difficult.
Schneider was able to
see Washington’s frustrations but said he wasn't
concerned about it affecting
her future play.
"She had some surgery
to clean some things up and
we felt it was the right time
so that she could be 100
percent," Schneider said.
"Jessica’s frustration was
not being able to be on the
court for a while, but anybody who is really competitive [and] doesn’t have an
avenue to fuel that fire will
be frustrated."
Team USA and the
transfer
Coming out of high
school, Washington was
heavily recruited by top
schools in the nation, including Kansas and North
Carolina.
ESPN had Washington
as the No. 2 prospect in the
nation for her position and
at No. 14 overall.
Originally deciding on
North Carolina, Washington was hopeful about becoming part of a dominant
team with her teammates
from the international
team.
"We had talked about

creating a 'fab five' group, so
when that was falling into
place it felt like the way it
was supposed to go," Washington said. "At a young age
you just don’t look at a lot of
the bigger picture."
While North Carolina
didn’t work out as planned
for Washington, she was
able to gain a lot of valuable
skills both as a basketball
player and a leader from
her teammates, especially
now-Tennessee guard Diamond DeShields.
"Diamond helped me
through the trial process to
actually make the team, and
as a point guard you have to
be vocal. At a younger age I
didn’t grasp that," she said.
Like Washington, DeShields
transferred
from
North Carolina after her
freshman year.
Schneider was happy to
successfully recruit a talented player such as Washington and not just because
she has two full years left of
eligibility.
Washington’s
ability
to shoot the ball
as well as run
the offense
will
give
Schneider the
opportunity
to
change

the game plan up.
"The offense will be different just because of the
tempo. She is very fast, has
great vision up the court
and is willing to get rid of
the ball early," Schneider
said. "With her versatility
she can play the point guard
or off the ball."
Starting early
Coming from a family
of athletes, Washington
became an elite basketball
player from an early age.
While many players and
recruiting starting in high
school, Washington knew
that she would be able to
play college ball since the
seventh grade.
"I felt like I really didn’t
have a choice because when
I was born my parents were
still in college and playing
their sports," Washington
said. "I played soccer and
basketball growing up so it
was all I knew and I love it."
Growing up in Tulsa,
Okla., she lived in a competitive basketball environment both through
her
high

school (Jenks High School)
and AAU ball, which her
dad coached.
All the basketball that
Washington has played has
led her to Kansas. Next season Washington will debut

Jayhawks as one of the oldest players on the team and
Schneider is happy to have
her on the team after the
long transfer process.
“People make changes
for a variety of reasons,”
Schneider said. “I’m glad
that she thinks this is a really good fit so I am hoping
that she will perform well
in the classroom and help
us win a lot of basketball
games.”

Letter from the editor’s desk:
‘Life is unpredictable. Run with it.’
VICKY DIAZ-CAMACHO
@vickyd_c

H

ere’s my story. I
hope this helps
someone who is
worried about what will
happen next. Most of us
never know.
When I first set foot on
a university campus it was
new and unpredictable —
and not much has changed.
When I was 17, I had no
clue what to do. I was fresh
out of high school, had no
idea what to major in and
the thought of years of
schoolwork was daunting. I
was scared.
And now? I’m wrapping
up some of the best years
of my life as a University journalism student and
editor-in-chief of the University Daily Kansan. My
college dream came true.

Sure, I will graduate almost
a decade after I left high
school, but, this factoid
prompts my first note of advice: Do not let your fear of
being judged rule your life.
Instead let your ambitions
carry you.
Be bold and try new
things. In my case, this
meant watching foreign
films for the first time at
a dingy little cafe in West
Texas or going to house
shows in dimly lit basements in New Mexico. And,
most profoundly, I fell in
love at 18 years old.
But after four years of
dead-end jobs, I decided
it was time for something
new. I enrolled and spent
my first college years in
New Mexico and became an
arts editor, a photographer
and took a liking to art history. In 2013 I got married
and moved from Texas to

Once in a lifetime.
Be part of the tradition:
Walk down the Hill and into the
stadium to celebrate Commencement.
On May 15, pass through the Campanile
and meet the world on the other side.

Kansas, away from home
and everything I knew.
“Fitting in” was tough at
first, but I had lots of practice. I plugged myself into
a new world by dancing to
James Brown in the streets
of Kansas City, Mo. for First
Friday’ss, or decimating my
eardrums at an emo show
at Records with Merritt or
grabbing cookie dough ice
cream at Sylas and Maddy’s, where I am now a local. Here’s my second note
of advice: Explore. Say,
“Hi” to that person next
to you at the show, or in
your COMS class or at the
bookstore downtown and
keep talking. They could be
your next best friend. They
might introduce you to a
world where you discover
what you love.
My world is my husband, my cat, The Kansan
and now, my city. A year

ago I was a copy editor.
Throughout that year, I met
like-minded, fervent people who supported me and
believed in me in and outside of work. Beyond that, I
found friends. I belong to a
community, (you know who
you are). Imagine what you
can do in your next two to
three years. Don’t be ruled
by fear. Find your troop.
Explore and let your ambitions carry you.
There’s no shortcut. If
you take new routes, you’re
going to notice the refreshing subtleties. Life can be
unpredictable but let it happen. For us seniors, our first
steps into the real world
will be through the Campanile on graduation day.
Thank you to those who’ve
joined me on the path that
I’ve chosen this far.
With that, I bid KU
adieu.

This year in news
This year, the Kansan had 29 print issues and about 19 special sections. News coverage ranged from Town Hall meetings, to
parking and MSG forums and presidential candidates visiting Lawrence and Kansas City. Here is a recap of news from the past year:

Diversity and
Inclusion:
On Nov. 11, 2015, over
500 University students,
faculty and staff gathered

in Woodruff Auditorium
overflowing into the Big 12
Room of the Student Union
for a Town Hall meeting
about race, respect and responsibility. At the meeting, Kynnedi Grant, a junior

from St. Louis and student
activist, said she and her
friends were attacked at a
party. She said a gun was
pulled on her. This meeting
was the first time student
group Rock Chalk Invisible

Hawk spoke out and presented 15 demands to make
the University more diverse
and inclusive.
The following weeks
and months saw numerous
schools hosting town hall

discussions on race, the call
for School of Social Welfare
Dean Paul Smokowski to
resign and his eventual resignation.
On March 9, Student Senate approved the

first-ever
Multicultural
Student Government in the
nation, but it was vetoed
by Chancellor Bernadette
Gray-Little on May 4, group
leader Katherine Rainey
said.

Four presidential
candidates visit
local area during
spring semester:
Ted Cruz, March 2:
Withdrew from the race
May 4
Cruz said during his campaign that he is the Republican Party’s best chance to
beat Donald Trump.
“Let me be very clear to
the men and women of Kansas. I will not compromise
our religious liberty and I will
not compromise away our
Second Amendment right to
keep and bear arms,” Cruz
said.
Cruz drew a crowd of

around 1,300 to the rally,
which fell three days before
Saturday’s Kansas caucus,
which he later won.
Bernie
Sanders,
March 3:
After stopping by Massachusetts Street the evening
of March 3 for some handshakes, a few selfies and a
haircut at the Downtown Barbershop, Sanders was greeted
by deafening cheers of thousands of supporters at the
Douglas County Fairgrounds.
Sanders took strong
stances on issues such as
healthcare, veteran services,
free higher education and
the“corrupt campaign finance system.”
Sanders said supporters
must unite in order to in-

sure victory against Donald
Trump because “love trumps
hatred.”
Marco Rubio, March
4: Withdrew from the
race March 15
Rubio was flanked by
fighter jets to his right and left
as he spoke to the crowd of
roughly 300 people.
Kansas Gov. Brownback
and Sen. Pat Roberts, who
both previously endorsed
the Republican candidate,
praised Rubio before he
stepped up to speak.
“Trump is not prepared to be the commander-in-chief,” Rubio said.
“Anyone who thinks the
Nuclear Triad was a rock
band is not qualified to be
the commander-in-chief.”

Donald Trump, March
12:
After Republican candidates Cruz and John Kasich
dropped out May 3 and 4,
respectively, Trump became
the presumptive Republican
nominee.
Roughly 3,000 people packed into the Arvest
Bank Theatre at the Midland

March 12 to rally for Donald
Trump.
By the end of the speech,
12 separate groups of protesters demonstrated against
Trump and were escorted out
of the building.
The second half of
Trump’s speech focused on
his platforms to “Make America great again,” including

ensuring America’s safety
against terrorists.
”We’re going to knock the
hell out of ISIS,” Trump said.
“We’re going to win with our
Second Amendment; we’re
not going to let them chop
up our Second Amendment.
We’re going to start winning
so much, and you’re going to
be so proud.”

270 yellow parking spots
were lost, largely due to
construction.
In the fall semester,
Alex Hardee, a senior from
Shawnee, started a petition
to increase student parking
spaces and received more
than 1,300 signatures. University Parking and Transit

Department then held two
forums discussing upcoming changes in response to
the petition.
Donna Hultine, director
of KU Parking and Transit, said 217 parking spots
will be lost in lot 72, near
the Burge Union and Allen
Fieldhouse.
“The parking situation
will get a little more crowded with the construction,”
she said. “Not only will we
lose yellow lot spots, but

residential parking at
Jawhawker Towers and
at Stauffer Place will also
be affected by the Central District construction.
We’ve already lost most of
the Stauffer Place parking
to construction this year,
and Towers parking is
down to 317.”

Congratulations Graduates!

THIS YEAR IN SPORTS
stopped in the Elite 8, when
Villanova clamped down on
Kansas senior Perry Ellis in
what would be his last game
of his storied Jayhawk career.

Kansas defeated West Virginia 81-71 to become the Big 12 Tournament Champions.

CHRISTIAN HARDY
@ByHardy

Just like most years,
Kansas athletics had plenty of success in the 2015-16
school year. But over the
last two semesters, many of
those successes have come
not from headliner sports,
but from non-revenue
sports making big strides.
Along with Kansas basketball’s run to the Elite 8,
there were five other teams
who made runs in their
postseason play. For many
teams, this year was the
most memorable of the last
several decades.

Volleyball makes history,
advances to Final Four
Unprecedented: it was a
word constantly muttered,
talked about, and yelled by
the Kansas volleyball team.

And the Jayhawks’ season
was exactly that.
The Jayhawks won 19
straight matches to start the
year, a team record for consecutive wins, before falling
to Texas in conference play.
But where Kansas shined
was in the NCAA Tournament. Kansas hosted the
first two rounds, sweeping
Furman and Missouri to
advance to the Sweet 16,
where the real challenges
began.
There, they defeated
Loyola Marymount in four
sets. But the next win, a
five-set victory over No. 2
USC where the Jayhawks
went on a 6-0 run to comeback and win the match,
was where the Jayhawks cemented their legacy.
The win in the team’s
first ever Elite 8 matchup
gave the Jayhawks their

first Final Four appearance
in program history. There,
the first-time accomplishments ended: the Nebraska
Cornhuskers ended the Jayhawks’ unprecedented run
with a four-set win in Omaha, Nebraska. Still, it was
one of the most memorable
runs in recent Kansas athletic’s history, and a huge
stride for women’s sports at
Kansas.
Kansas men’s basketball
reaches Elite 8
The 2015-16 season
brought four championships for coach Bill Self’s
Jayhawks. It started with
the gold medal at the World
University Games in July of
2015; with ‘USA’ stitched
across their crimson and
blue jerseys, the Jayhawks
won eight straight games to
win the gold medal, includ-

ing a double overtime win
over Germany to win the
championship.
Then the build-up to the
Jayhawks’ run at their 12th
straight Big 12 title ramped
up with 14 straight wins after a loss to Michigan State
early in the season. Within
those 14 was a 3-0 run at
the Maui Invitational to win
their second title.
After some stumbling in
the middle of the year, the
Jayhawks won 14 straight
games, marching into the
tournament as the the Big
12 regular season and postseason champion and the
No. 1 overall seed in the
tournament.
Through the tournament, the Jayhawks were
the favorites to win, steamrolling their way through
the first three games of the
tournament. But the run

Kansas football goes winless
The first season at the
helm of Kansas football
couldn’t have been more
difficult for David Beaty.
With a lack of depth, scholarship players, and immense youth on both sides
of the ball, Kansas supporters knew Beaty, in his
first year as head coach of
a college football program,
would struggle. But few saw
a winless season coming.
The Jayhawks struggled on both sides of the
ball in 2015. Beaty shuffled
through four starting quarterbacks, including Michael
Cummings, who tore his
ACL in the spring game,
as the offense finished 114
out of 127 teams in total offense.
Clint Bowen’s defense
had it worse, though: with
a secondary with almost
nothing but freshman or
first-time players, the Jayhawks finished dead last in
the NCAA in total defense,
allowing 560.8 yards per
game.
It all led to an 0-12 season, the second time in
Kansas football history. But
the struggles have prompted changes, including Beaty
taking over play-calling
duties and tweaks on both
the offensive and defensive
side, which the team hopes
will lead to more success in
2016.
Kawinpakorn excels in
senior season
There may never be
another golfer like Yupaporn Kawinpakorn to come
through Kansas again. This
year, Kawinpakorn, a senior
from Samutprakan, Thai-

land, won five individual
titles after winning just one
in her first three years at
Kansas. The five wins are a
Kansas record, but that was
only the start of what Kawinpakorn accomplished in
her final year as a Jayhawk.
She broke the team’s
54-hole score record several times, finishing the regular season with a 209 at
the Red Raider Invitational before finishing tied for
fifth at the Big 12 Women’s
Golf Championship. Before
heading to the NCAA Regionals this week, Kawinpakorn was named to the AllBig 12 team for the second
time in her four-year career
at Kansas.
Most impressively, Kawinpakorn has broken Kansas’ single-season stroke
average record every year
since she’s been at Kansas,
and is expected to do it
again if she stays on pace at
the NCAA tournaments to
finish the year.

Kansas tennis earns berth
NCAA Tournament
For the first time since
1999, the Kansas tennis
team advanced to the NCAA
tournament this year. And
for coach Todd Chapman,
this may be just the start of
his postseason opportunities.
The Jayhawks finished
in a tie for second place in
the Big 12, but did it with
three freshman in its top
six: Nina Khmelnitckaia,
Janet Koch, and Anastasiya Rychagova. With those
three, along with senior
Maria Jose Cardona, the
Jayhawks went 17-7 and
finished No. 33 in the ITA
standings.KU
