desh is that i a amily gets a blanket, the whole amily will huddle up with this one blanket during the night, so one blanket can support a amily o our or ﬁve,” Rah-man said.Rahman and Heeren had already held a successul clothing drive within the law school, and Estella Mc-Collum, the director o the KU Bookstore is optimistic about the new campaign.“I’m really impressed with the passion they have or what they are doing, and I think it’s a good opportu-nity to provide KU students and alumni and ans to buy not just another KU shirt, but a KU shirt that has a positive message with it,” McCollum said.With the success o the Buy A Shirt, Give A Shirt campaign, the organization hopes to expand urther, to create a global Jayhawk orce.“Bangladesh is just a start-ing point,” Rahman said. “You have to start some-where, and because we were there this summer, it hits close to us and I think it’s a good place to begin. Hope-ully, we can expand to all corners o the world i we can get enough help rom our Jayhawk ans.”For now, Rahman and Heeren are content with creating a second home or the Jayhawks in Dhaka. Te simplest way to help is to donate a shirt or buy a shirt, Rahman said. “Te -shirt, it represents that the Jayhawk nation is everywhere,” Rahman said. “Wherever in the world you are, your Jayhawk pride travels. And i you buy our -shirt, hopeully, we can create Jayhawk pride in the slums o Dhaka, Bangla-desh, whether they know it or not.” For more inormation, go to unitedacrossborders.org.

ent rom what you expect.”Although Elefheriou did not attend any basketball games this year at the Uni- versity, he did attend ootball games in the all, as his room-mate was a member o the team.“For me, this concept o col-lege sports doesn’t exist in En-gland,” he said. “It was really unny — I used to sit with the parents o the [players], and you learn how rom a young age they’re playing oot-ball, playing ootball. It was amazing hearing the stories o the parents. I’m going to have to support Kansas now; I’m really looking orward to going back and wearing the Jayhawk. I really want to see i people shout, ‘Rock Chalk’ rom across the road. Appar-ently it happens; there’s a big [KU] community in London and I’m looking orward to it.”For Yates and Elefheriou, the theater program at the University is radically diﬀer-ent rom that o their home university. Te theater pro-gram at Kent is incredibly ac-ademic-based with a stricter grading system and more the-ory. Yates explained that here at the University, learning is more practical.“[In England,] you pop into University maybe 10 hours, possibly 12 hours a week and you never have to go back on campus,” Yates said. “Here, you’re actually doing plays and directing stuﬀ and you’re learning how to act, rather than just the theory o acting. We [English students] learn very early on some things that aren’t taught here until grad-uate level, but we never learn the practical side — you have to go to a drama school or that.”In addition to their aca-demics, the two students have become highly involved with the University productions. Both Yates and Elefheriou were cast members o “Much Ado about Nothing.”“I’m so glad, so glad, that I had that experience,” Elef-heriou said, smiling. “I didn’t audition or it, but Peter Zaz-zali sent me an email. He said, ‘Do you want to be in Much Ado?’ And I said, ‘Why? What happened? He said the [actor] doesn’t know i he wants to do it, because he has a proessional gig in KC. So I thought I was going to be an understudy, and then the next day [Zazzali] said, ‘He’s not in it any more — you’ve got the whole thing.”Elefheriou explained that the show was o a collabo-rative nature, with director Zazzali asking actors or their opinions and sugges-tions throughout rehearsals. Although Elefheriou wished or more planned rehearsals at times, he still thoroughly being a part o the show.“I think I’ve learned more rom ‘Much Ado’ than any o my classes,” he said. “[I learned] about Shakespeare, about vocals, about directing in general — I really loved Peter Zazzali’s class about di-recting. In ‘Much Ado,’ I got to see him work and under-stand the importance o col-laboration and o the words. I learned so much through him in that play.”Yates’ ace lit up as he talked about his time on the stage o the Crafon-Preyer Teater — his avorite memory as an actor. “Being on stage is antastic,” he said. “Tere’s one big scene where I have a speech about me being an ass. It’s a very unny monologue. Whenev-er I came oﬀ and people were laughing — sometimes in one or two shows people applaud-ed afer it — that was it, that was the moment or me. Hap-piest moment at KU, happiest moment o being an actor, is just getting that eedback rom the audience.”Yates is also an ensemble member in “Te Other Shore” and is in the process o writ-ing and revising three plays and a monologue. One o his plays, “Te Human Exhibit,” was perormed in a rehearsed reading in December or his independent study program. Te one-act play eatures two ghosts haunting a museum and contemplating their lives. Afer “Te Other Shore” is perormed, Yates will also di-rect the play, “Te Big Ride,” to be perormed in May. Despite his love or all things theater, directing both his own works and others’ works is what he hopes to do in his uture.“Directing is great or me because you get to engineer everything,” he said. “You get to play with the actors. ogether you discover where you want to go with a scene, what the characters are doing, how they are doing it. You get to work with the script and rediscover what it has to say and ﬁnd out what you want to show rom the script and how you want to come across with the play.”Elefheriou is creating a documentary about his ex-perience as a Brit in America and the mystique surround-ing his culture or his inde-pendent study program. He hopes to create a ﬁlm that will demonstrate the American ascination with the British culture, which he has experi-enced ﬁrsthand. “When you think o Amer-ica, you think o course, be-cause I’m British, everyone is going to be asking about my accent. And I thought it was just stereotypical, but it was actually true,” he laughed. “People do come up to you, wanting you to speak to them. Tey say, ‘Oh my God, you’re British!’ I couldn’t get over it.”Yates and Elefheriou both explained that the intimacy o the University’s theater program is something they will miss when they return to England.“KU is exceptional,” Yates said. “Tere’s really a sense o amily. Normally what you see, back home and in the proessional world as well, is an egotistical environment. Te people who think they’re the best ofen act like they are, and don’t give any time to anyone else. KU is the only place where I haven’t seen that happen. Tere’s no cliques; everyone just wants everyone else to succeed.”Yates hopes to return to the U.S. afer graduating rom Kent and continue his theater career in a big city like New York. Although Elefheriou plans to pursue his career in England, returning to the U.S. is something that he would not reuse.“I someone said, ‘come back,’ I would deﬁnitely come back and visit,” Elefheriou explained. “I eel like I have a connection now here. Amer-ica is crazy — but in a good way.”
