The School of Engineering at the University of Kansas has embarked on a major expansion that will increase the size of the student body, research endeavors, and opportunities for students and faculty. Through an $80 million project, two new structures are under construction that will provide an additional 135,000 square feet of classroom, laboratory and office space. The new classrooms come in a variety of sizes and employ newer designs that help ensure students receive a quality learning experience despite growing enrollments. Another major facet of the expansion project is the creation of a high-bay facility on KU’s West Campus. The structure will provide 10,000 square feet for the structural testing area, with a 40-foot wall. In addition there will be another 3,000 square feet set aside for student projects. The high bay facility is expected to be complete by fall 2014 and the main structure at the Engineering Complex is expected to be ready for occupancy in summer 2015, in time for the start of the fall 2015 semester. Additional details about the designs for the new buildings can be found here: http://engr.ku.edu/news/2013-05-3/school-unveils-final-designs-new-engineering-build.

Nearly 7,500 miles separate Nepali students at South Dakota State University from their home in Kathmandu and other points in the South Asian country. On Feb. 9, the SDSU Nepalese Student Association brought the culture of Nepal across the world to the university’s eighth annual Nepal Night.
The event showcased cultural aspects of Nepalese life, including a Nepali band performing a fusion of folk and rock music, dances, food and a fashion show of traditional dress from the country’s eight regions. Entertainment also included a drama celebrating the Nepali festival of Tihar, which is a five-day festival held in late October or early November. The final day marks the good bonding between brothers and sisters through the custom of tika, a mark of honor that is placed on the forehead.
Traditional foods, like chicken curry and roasted chicken were served, along with a favorite staple of Nepal Night, fruit yogurt dessert. The event sold out and has sold out every year since its inception, attracting over 450 people from the campus and community. Currently, there are 82 Nepali students at SDSU, most of them graduate students and can be found in virtually every academic discipline. To view more photos of Nepal Night, visit our Facebook page.
