‘It’s a Great Day to Be a Jayhawk’


The Pitch‘s Josh Ziegler caught this video in downtown Lawrence last night of the celebration that followed KU’s national championship win.

Meanwhile KU’s chancellor sent out this e-mail today letting Lawrence students know they’ll have a snow day today. Sorry, KU students in Overland Park, you’re not included.

Dear Students,

In recognition of KU’s victory in the NCAA national championship game, classes on KU’s Lawrence campus only are cancelled [sic] for Tuesday, April 8. Classes will resume on Wednesday. KU Edwards Campus students should plan to attend April 8 classes as scheduled unless otherwise notified by their faculty.

The community will welcome the team home at a public event at approximately 3 p.m. today at Kivisto Field in Memorial Stadium, rain or shine. Doors/gates will open at 1:30; shuttle buses will be running from the Park and Ride lots starting at 12:30 p.m. Parking around the stadium will be open to the public. Please join us in welcoming our National Champions home!

It’s a great day to be a Jayhawk!
