Students without school spirit are typically visited by three ghosts: the ghost of mascots past, the ghost of homework present, and the ghost of Abraham Lincoln, whenever he can fit you into his busy schedule. Stay in the clear with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of KU apparel at KU Bookstore, located on Jayhawk Boulevard.
The nonprofit KU Bookstore is any student's one-stop haven for University of Kansas apparel and accessories. Toast your ears with a crimson-and-blue knit KU cap by Adidas ($18) or cozily cocoon yourself in a variety of KU sweatshirts ($26.99–$52.99). The store’s crimson corner features a rotating display of discounted items, including the Rock Chalk Jayhawk T-shirt ($12.99), and one of the store’s KU license plates ($18.99–$29.99) could be proudly adorned on the front bumper of any KU fan’s B2 stealth bomber. This deal is only valid toward KU merchandise, and all items must be bought in-store.
- For one futuristic vision of the college bookstore, visit the University of Kansas. Its bookstore sports a bright, modern look and can print its own books. It was the first to join a pilot project with Hewlett-Packard to test print-on-demand machines in college stores. That lets KU Bookstores dodge the riskiest part of its business—ordering loads of printed textbooks in advance and hoping that students buy their required materials on campus. The store has put its new printing facilities on display, letting curious students see the process. – Jeffrey R. Young, Chronicle of Higher Education
