Rock Chalk Park will host the Kansas Relays, which runs Wednesday through Saturday, or the first time, despite the unfinished complex. One week ago, city commis-sioners granted permission or the Kansas Relays to be held at Rock Chalk Park, instead o its regular location at Memorial Stadium. “We had to do a walk-through and make sure struc-tures are sound and just that it is sae or the public to be there,” said Jeremy Farmer, vice mayor o Lawrence.Walk-throughs are routine, and every new building in Lawrence is required to have one, Farmer said. It was obvi-ous the track part o the com-plex was sae and ready to use.Te track and the 7,000 bleacher seats are ready to go, along with locker rooms or the athletes. However, the rest o the park, including sofball and soccer acilities and a public recreation center, is still  very much under construc-tion. KU Associate Athletic Director Jim Marchiony said  visitors will notice the con-struction, but it won’t affect the competition. “We are calling this a sofopening,” Marchiony said. “Tere is still work to be done, but what people will be able to see and sense is how beautiul o a place it is when it is all done.”Te acility isn’t the only thing different about the re-lays this year — the track is different as well. Te material put into the track is o better quality, there is a ninth lane added and each lane is six inches wider.Te Kansas Relays is known or its elite athletes, such as Olympian Bruce Jenner who won the decathlon in 1971 and 1974. Tis year, more than 300 high schools and 250 colleges and universities will be partic-ipating in the our-day event. “It’s an event that has a lot o history, and we want to make sure that history continues,” Marchiony said. “We build on that tradition and make it a top notch collegiate meet. It is worth it just to see what a ven-ue like that can be.”Te City o Lawrence con-tributed $22.5 million or the recreation center inside the park that will include 8 bas-ketball courts, 16 volleyball courts, in addition to gym-nastic and aerobic areas. Te whole park is expected to be finished in September.

Te University’s Law School recently revealed its new partnerships with our o In-dia’s top law schools, which will encourage collaboration between students and ac-ulty o the universities. In addition, the program aims to increase the University o Kansas’s visibility in India, enhancing job opportunities or law students rom all uni- versities involved.“Tere’s a great demand or lawyers in many other coun-tries,” said Raj Bhala, asso-ciate dean or international and comparative law and Rice Distinguished Proessor at the University. “Many trans-actions are across borders, es-pecially when you look at the potential with India. We want our students to have oppor-tunities not only in Western regions, but also in these im-portant emerging markets.Bhala solidified the partner-ships, which were his idea, during his March-February lecture tour o India. Afer negotiations with the Indian universities, Bhala was able to sign agreements on behal o Law School Dean Stephen Mazza with the National Academy o Legal Studies and Research in Hyderabad, the Government Law College in Mumbai, the Jindal Global Law School near New Delhi and the Indian Law Institute in New Delhi.“Te Dean [Stephen Mazza] was wonderully supportive o me trying this out on be-hal o the Law School,” Bha-la said. “At every university, I have riends there. I have amily in India, and many amily members have con-nections at the law schools or legal employers there.”In addition to job opportu-nities, this partnership will also encourage the flow o ideas between universities, allowing collaboration on re-search projects, scholarship opportunities or students, and international exchanges between students and aculty o all universities involved. “I you think in terms o im-ports and exports o students, aculty and ideas, it enhances our cross-border trade in all three respects,” Bhala said. “It increases our bringing in stu-dents and aculty rom India. It increases our going to In-dia, and it increases the flow o ideas. In order or a law school to enhance its inter-national visibility, it needs to think about how it can import and export more in terms o what we deal in — and we deal in people and ideas.”University law students have been involved with In-dia prior to this partnership as well. Second-year law stu-dents Madeline Heeren rom Lenexa and Aqmar Rahman rom Lawrence will be in-terning at J. Sagar Associates, a commercial litigation law firm in India, this summer. “We’re both very interest-ed in international trade,” Heeren said. “India is a flour-ishing market and so the opportunities there are so much greater than even the opportunities here because we have a different set o le-gal knowledge than they have there. Our education and our experience are assets or them over there.”Rahman said connections with India will be crucial in upcoming years. “Te legal market and job market in general, whether you’re a law major or a busi-ness major, is becoming more global, and the University o Kansas partnering with these institutions in India is a huge step in the right direction,”Rahman said. He said the new partner-ships with the law schools inIndia will offer many similaropportunities to students at the University.“I think in the uture stu-dents will have a variety o options to go study in India, to learn about the legal sys-tem, to be able to interactwith Indian attorneys andproessors and gain a wealth o inormation and knowl-edge,” Rahman said. “I think it’s a door that’s been openedand will greatly help studentsor years and years to come.”Bhala explained that due toIndia’s growing legal market,the partnerships were natural or the University to take. o reach out to India and create partnerships among the uni- versities led Bhala and theUniversity to take a step “out-side o our comort zone.”

Heartbleed reported to not be a threat to University
The University’s Information Tech-nology department said students’ accounts are safe from the massive software bug called Heartbleed that recently came to light last week.Security experts made the public aware of the bug last Monday, re-vealing it as an error in a piece of free software called OpenSSL, which is used by two-thirds of all web-sites. Heartbleed has been making headlines recently for its potential to put usernames and passwords for many websites at risk. And the possibility for serious consumer data theft is troubling. Experts have also expressed fear that the flaw could al-low hackers to copy website security certificates, which would allow them to lure users to fake websites to steal personal information.According to the post on the Univer-sity’s IT website, students do not need to be concerned with the safety of their University online accounts. The post says the “vast majority of servers at KU are not vulnerable to the Heart-bleed bug,” and they are not requiring students to change their passwords.After the issue came to light, the IT staff began making the appropriate fixes to a “small number of vulnerable systems,” and are monitoring the sys-tems for potential problems.

Athletes from around the country will compete in the Kansas Relays at Rock Chalk Park, the new home of Kansas track and field, this week.

Despite the unfinished soccer, softball and recreation facilities, city commissioners granted the Kansas Relays permission one week ago to be held at Rock Chalk Park.
Wednesday and Thursday admission is free. Friday and Saturday tickets are $5 for all spectators and can be pur-chased online. Tickets are good for Friday and Saturday.
Sixth Street and George Wil-liams Way

“India is a flourishing market and so the opportunities there are so much greater than even the opportunities here ... Our education and our experience are assets for them over there.”MADELINE HEERENLaw student from Lenexa
In 2008, Brigid Schwilling lost in that year’s Ms. Wheel-chair Kansas competition. She said her aith prompted her to compete again last month, and on March 16, she had her crown.“For six years the coordi-nator kept sending me an application to run again and I didn’t run and I didn’t run and I didn’t run, and I really elt like God was just telling me, ‘You need to run again,” Schwilling said.Schwilling graduated rom the University in 1996 with a bachelor’s degree in elemen-tary education. She continued on to Washburn University to get her master’s degree in social work. She worked as a therapist or eight years, but quit because o health prob-lems a year and a hal ago.“I was a therapist at a com-munity mental health center and I love counseling peo-ple and [quitting because o health problems] was real-ly hard or me,” Schwilling said. “For the first year I was depressed [and] angry. I elt lost.”Te challenges o her health and the adversity other people with disabilities aced inspired Schwilling to speak out. “Unortunately, there are still people out there that be-lieve that people with disabil-ities should just stay in their apartments and receive their disability checks and keep their mouths shut,” she said. “I’m here to say that we, as a community with disabilities, we have something to say.”Since her victory, Schwilling has been working to spread the message o her plat-orm—“Finding a Purpose Trough Adversity.” “I think people with disabil-ities, they go through a lot o adversity,” she said. “My ad- versity was I’d lef my job due to health issues and I elt like I signed up to compete in the Ms. Wheelchair Kansas com-

Alumna uses pageant title to raise disability awareness 
Brigid Schwilling uses her Ms. Wheelchair title to spread her message about others’ attitudes toward people with disabilities.
On Tursday, April 10, nine outstanding emale students were recognized by the Em-ily aylor Center or Women and Gender Equity at the Women’s Recognition Ban-quet.Each year, the center hon-ors women at the Univer-sity or their achievements on campus and throughout the community. Apart rom students, the event also rec-ognizes women aculty, staff and alumnae who have made a difference in the campus community through things such as service, teaching or involvement. Each o the students who received an award was nomi-nated anonymously.Among the nine students were Leigh Loving, a junior rom McPherson, Jill Lan-glas, a senior rom Wheaton, Ill., and Hannah Sitz, a senior rom Andover. Loving received the “Out-standing Woman Student in Leadership.” Other than being a tutor in science courses, her participation in alternative breaks, serving as a research ellow or the Kan-sas Health Foundation and interning at Children’s Mer-cy Hospital, Loving said she eels she received the award because o her work with Jay-hawk Health Initiative, a pre-health program, o which she is ounder and president.“I eel very honored to re-ceive the award, especially with how many outstanding women leaders there are here at the University. I think it takes a unique orm o lead-ership to create something like Jayhawk Health Initia-tive,“ Loving said. “It means my hard work has been rec-ognized by others and I know what I’ve done has made a positive impact at KU.”As the only emale leader on the National Champion Jayhawk Motorsports For-mula SAE racecar program, it’s not surprising that Lan-glas received the “Sally Ma-son Women Student in Sci-ence Award.Langlas said that her role as team lead o Jayhawk motor

petition because I had that message to give.”Carrie Greenwood, who ounded the Ms. Wheelchair Kansas program in 2004, said Schwilling’s platorm is what made her stand out.“[Te competition] does not include outer beauty, but includes how you present yoursel,” Greenwood said. “Trough a series o inter-views, contestants share their platorms and their accom-plishments.”Schwilling is the 11th contestant Ms. Wheelchair Kansas has crowned in its decade-long history, and she is dedicated to sharing her message. “What I get to do now as Ms. Wheelchair Kansas is travel around the state en-couraging people with dis-abilities and educating the public about people with disabilities and advocating or people with disabilities in groups,” she said. “I’m hoping to talk to the Kansas Legislature.”Schwilling said she hopes to improve access to buildings and sidewalks and housing. She also hopes to change attitudes toward people with disabilities. “We have a purpose. I be-lieve that all people have a purpose, whether they have a disability or not,” she said. “Regardless o their skin col-or or background or abilities, everyone has some ability and I ocus on the abilities not the disabilities and that’s what I would like to encour-age other people to ocus on.”In August, Schwilling will get to share her platorm at the Ms. Wheelchair America pageant in Long Beach, Cali. “I God wants me to take this message beyond Kansas, he’ll make me Ms. Wheel-chair America. I he doesn’t, someone else will win,” she said. “But I’m already pray-ing or that person, because, whoever wins, their lie will be orever changed or the good.”

“Most American law schools have ocused much more on Europe, and when they go into the non-Western world, most o them ocus on China,” he said. “But KU has had more o a global vision and we’ve seen the important emerging patterns o the rise o India. We’ve been paying attention to important markets or our  visibility.Because other American uni- versities ocus on other areas o the world, Bhala explained that this Indian partnership is unique to the University. Bhala praised the law school’s steps in creating a wider interna-tional ocus or partnerships. “We have to be more entre-preneurial and take some cal-culated risks,” Bhala said. “Get-ting us to try to do new things is important. It’s stimulating and more important proes-sionally or our students.”

It was once tradition at KU that new students had to wear freshman beanies. This tradition was squelched when returning WWII veterans refused to wear them, and no one chose to force the issue.
KU Endowment is hosting a casting call to promote the University and to help raise private unds or students, ac-ulty and staff. oday, the cast-ing call will be at Mrs. E’s rom 9 a.m. to noon. Tis will be the last day to participate. At the casting call, partic-ipants will have their photos taken by a proessional pho-tographer. Afer the photo, they are asked to sign a release orm and give a quote about what the University means to them. Valerie Gieler, senior editor at KU Endowment, helped plan this event. Gieler said their mission is to work with donors to gain support to build a better University. “We will use the photos and quotes to promote the Univer-sity in a positive light,” Gieler said. “Tere’s no better way to do that than to show off the aces and voice o people who are here on campus.” KU Endowment hosted a similar casting call two years ago. Gieler said because the casting call was successul then, they wanted to do an-other one. Tis year’s photos will be used or the KU En-dowment website, printed brochures, advertisements and specific proposals to donors. “It’s always more interesting to talk about KU when you can show off the people here instead o just the programs,” Gieler said. “We’re always looking or ways to eature stu-dents and our aculty and our staff.” Te donations received by KU Endowment go back to the University in a variety o orms. While the donors direct where the money goes, much o it goes towards scholarships, ellowships or graduate stu-dents, proessorships, research unds or campus construction. Tis year’s casting call has been running since Monday with about 90 participants on day one. Lisa Wojcehowicz, a senior rom Milwaukee, Wis., said many students are excited to know they can be “KU a-mous” afer this event. “Now I can be a part o help-ing other students get scholar-ship,” Wojcehowicz said. “Be-ing a student at KU, you are a part o something bigger than yoursel.” Participants may take a pho-to alone or with a group o riends. Afer the casting call, KU Endowment will create a gallery on their Facebook page where participants may use their own photo or personal use. For more inormation,  visit the KU Endowment Face-book page.

sports was definitely a large part o her receiving the award.“I put a lot o hard work into my studies and extra curriculars, so it’s nice that my aculty advisors thought I was doing a good job too. It’s reassuring that my work has made a difference,” Lan-glas said. “I am always a lit-tle shocked by how ew girls there are in my major. It was a good option or me to pur-sue [mechanical] engineer-ing.”Other than Jayhawk mo-torsports, Langlas is also involved in the Sel Engi-neering Leadership Fellows Program, Engineering Stu-dent Council and is a student ambassador or the School o Engineering. Growing up in a communi-ty, church, school and amily that has instilled in her the importance o using her tal-ents and resources to benefit others, it is no shock that Sitz received the “Outstanding Woman Student in Commu-nity Service” award.Sitz believes that her work with KU Alternative Breaks made her a qualified candi-date. “I am very honored and  very excited to be part o such a distinguished group o women,” Sitz said. “I’ve enjoyed combining that drive [to serve others] with my knack or organization and involvement in a variety o avenues- most notably KU Alternative Breaks.”Other than serving as co-director or Alternative Breaks, Sitz is in the Uni- versity Honors Program, a CORO ellow, (a national in-ternship program), and was the University’s 17th ruman Scholar last year. She plans to pursue her master’s in public administration this all at In-diana University.Tis year, the center also inducted six new members to the KU Women’s Hall o Fame along with honoring a KU graduate with the Pio-neer Woman award.
