After being on hiatus for morethan a month, the investigationinto Beta Theta Pi’s alleged ani-mal cruelty is set to resume withthe start of the semester. Policeinquiry into the matter has tem-porarily been on hold becausesome of the students involvedhave been out of Lawrence dueto winter break.In December, The KansasCity Star, Lawrence Journal-World, and The HuffingtonPost reported that a turkey wasabused and killed at the fra-ternity’s annual “Turkey Pull”party on the Friday after finalsweek.“Those people that werereally involved in the major-ity of it, I don’t think we’vehad any contact with yet,” saidTrent McKinley, public affairssergeant for the Lawrence PoliceDepartment. “We still wouldlike to talk to anyone that’s will-ing to visit with us about whatthey saw and maybe who they think is responsible.”McKinley said alcoholwas involved in the incident.However, McKinley was uncer-tain of what kind of animalcruelty charges, if any, wouldbe filed. The charges can rangefrom a misdemeanor to felony offenses. Although no arrestshave been made, McKinley saida report would most likely befiled to the district attorney’soffice within 30 days.“Just because class starts onTuesday doesn’t mean everyoneis going to have time to visit withus first thing Tuesday morning,”McKinley said. “This isn’t a mat-ter of rounding people up.”University spokesperson JillJess said the university expectsanyone with information aboutthis incident to cooperate fully.“Behavior such as that report-ed is reprehensible and is notwhat KU would expect from itsstudents,” Jess said.

Board of Regents updates college admission standards
Prospective students willhave to step up academically if they want to be admitted to theUniversity of Kansas.For the high school classes of 2013 and 2014, these prospectivestudents will have to meet thecurrent admission requirements.Starting in the fall of 2015,incoming freshmen must meetrequirements that the KansasBoard of Regents has set in placefor public colleges across thestate.For Kansans, incoming fresh-men must complete the KansasQualified Admissions (QA) cur-riculum, have a 2.0 GPA and atleast a 21 ACT score, or rank inthe top third of their graduatingclass. Out of state students musthave a 2.5 GPA and a 24 on theirACT or rank in the top third of their graduating class.The University wants to takethese requirements a step higheras a part of the Bold Aspirationsinitiative. For Kansas highschool students graduating in2016 who hope to attend theUniversity, they must completethe QA curriculum with a 2.0GPA, and have a 3.0 overall GPAand a 24 ACT score or a 3.25overall GPA and a 21 ACT score.Non-residents must completethe QA curriculum with a 2.5GPA, and have a 3.0 overall GPAand a 24 ACT score or a 3.25overall GPA and a 21 ACT score.Lisa Pinamonti, director of admissions at the University, saidthe whole goal of Bold Aspirationsis to assert the University as theestablished research university itis.“We are the flagship university,and the academic requirement atKU doesn’t measure the admis-sions,” Pinamonti said.The first-year retention rateof freshmen in 2010 was nearly 80 percent, meaning that of the3,491 students who were fresh-men in the fall, only 2,790 cameback for their sophomore years— a loss of 701 students.“We’ve been working withhigh school counselors, and thefeedback we are getting fromcounselors and students is thatthey say it’s important we aredoing this,” Pinamontisaid. “But some students are wary about taking four years of highschool math.”The acceptance rate in 2010for KU was 93 percent, andPinamonti hopes it will remainhigh.“We want to get studentsexcited about not everyone get-ting in,” Pinamonti said. “We’regetting the message out to highschool students to better preparefor college and know the impor-tance of being prepared.”

project, it worked with KUnitedto ensure that 15 charging sta-tions would be installed by thebeginning of the spring 2013semester. Currently, there are14 on the Lawrence campus andone on the Edwards campus,and five more stations will beinstalled at either location dur-ing the semester, depending onstudents’ suggestions.Each charging unit costsabout $300, and the projectcosts a total of $6,000. AnneMadden Johnson, managerfor Client Consulting at KUIT, said IT employees look for more ways to provide new services directly to students,and the charging stations arean inexpensive way to get stu-dents something they wanted.“Everyone lives and dieswith their device anymore,”Johnson said.Each charging station ismounted on the wall andincludes eight different charg-ing cords, including twoiPhone compatible cords, oneiPhone 5 cord, two Blackberry cords and three Samsung andAndroid compatible cords.Students, faculty and staff may use the charging stationsat any time for free. There isa tray at the bottom of thecharging station that will holdthe device while it is beingcharged. The tray is not sturdy enough to hold a laptop, but itcan support an iPad or any othertablet.KU IT is working with stu-dent leaders and taking sugges-tions for improvements for theremaining five stations. Ideasmay be posted on its Facebook page at facebook.com/kutech-nology.
