The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young. GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed.

The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS), GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFEtm campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution

Fill out the survey at: www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student.

*While we greatly appreciate the interest taken in GENIUS by students, staff, and faculty at academic institutions outside of the United States, at this time GENIUS is only able to track schools based in the U.S.

1:42 pm - Newbie Commuter Here!

I just wanted to introduce myself and start to network a little. I'll be starting the Play Therapy graduate program in June, commuting from the Chicago suburbs for class. Looking to get to know people in the area to hang with and/or get to know. I have to say I'm slightly intimidated by what I've seen so far - I'm gay and a unitarian universalist, and it seems that Midamerica (being a Nazarene-based school) and the population surrounding is very homophobic. It has nothing to do with my educational goals there, but I am i stepping into a mine field in KS?

9:09 pm - Research participation wanted!

Linda Jones, a clinical psychology graduate student at UMBC, is conducting an online research study on how young adults with peanut allergy and/or tree nut allergy perceive the way their parent(s) raised them. Her research also aims to determine how these characteristics relate to other aspects of daily life. All participants must be between the ages of 18 and 22, but do not need to have peanut or tree nut allergy. Participants will be entered in a drawing to win their choice of either an Ipod or Nintendo DS-Lite. If you would like to participate the link to the survey is below. It will take approximately one hour to complete.

7:56 pm - Craigslist is amazing

So I recently moved to Lawrence after having lived in DC and Atlanta. While in DC, I used craigslist A LOT (to sell furniture, find a roommate, etc.).

When I moved to Lawrence, I used craigslist to find my wonderful roommate and the most beautiful house in the world in which i currently live.

Now, I am looking for a used car on craigslist (I want a Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla or similar foreign car with anywhere from 40-75,000 miles on it and don't want to go through a dealer if anyone knows anyone who is selling a car).

I just want to spread the word about craigslist. Not nearly enough people in Lawrence are using it.

Craigslist.com is a totally FREE, 100% advertisement FREE website where ANYONE can post a "classified" type ad. You can use craigslist to do anything from find a roommate (I also looked at other websites when I was looking for a roommate in Lawrence and they charge ABSURD fees--$24.95 just to find a lawrence roomie?!?! no thanks!) to sell your car to get a date.

Just go to craigslist.com and go to KANSAS CITY!!!!!!

You will not be disappointed. and spread the word, too. People are paying outrageous prices for classified ads (and for dumb websites like roommateclick.com) when they can do all this stuff for FREE at craigslist. and the more people who use craigslist, the better it will be!!!!

i_mango_x KU Students:

How do you guys check and use your e-mail accounts? Do you use a program [I.E. not Outlook Web Access or WebMail.] such as Microsoft Outlook, MacOSX Mail, etc.? I recently set up my account on MacOSX Mail, however, it never seems to be able to connect to the Outgoing Mail Server smtp.ku.edu, which is what the KU Online Services website says to use. I am able to recieve and read e-mails, but not send them...

Any similar problems? Or perhaps a problem-solver?

Does anybody happen to know about the pros and cons of the music programs (particularly for piano performance and for composition) at KU and at K-State? I'd appreciate any information you could give. Thanks!

3:18 am - Here I come...

Hi all,

My name is Chris...I'm a graduating senior from Washington University in St. Louis, MO. After I graduate, I'll be spending a year and a half to two at Rockhurst University's premedical post-baccalaureate program. Which means my summer break will consist of 1-2 weeks after graduation before I ship off to KC to start taking General Chemistry starting June 6th. Weeee. Anywho, just thought I'd say hi, since I'll be joining you all soon! Check out my profile or my journal if ya wanna know more about me. With that, I'm off to finish studying for my LAST exam at Wash U!

Good night / morning, and fare thee well.

PS: Any students from Rockhurst? I'm about to stumble into a whole new world...I need friends!!! Oooo, and anyone know if Rockhurst has a choir? I NEED to be in a choir...

current mood: exhausted

1:29 pm - Vote April 5

As a young Kansan, I felt compelled to mention briefly how important voting is. College students generally vote in rather low numbers, which is unfortunate. And there is one very important issue on every ballot in Kansas that you should definitely voice your opinion on (more on that below).

You must be registered already to vote April 5 (voter registration deadline for this election has passed, though, of course, you may still register for all future elections!). You must vote where you are registered.

If you are away from home at College right now, request an absentee ballot right away by filling out this form: http://www.kssos.org/forms/elections/AV1.pdf You must complete and fax this form into your local County election officer by this Friday, April 1 at the absolute latest!!!

All the info on where to fax the form is online at: http://www.kssos.org/elections/elections_registration_ceo.asp

Finally, I have thoroughly researched all issues and candidates on the ballot and STRONGLY believe we need to all vote a big NO on the proposed marriage amendment. The consequences of this amendment are severe and NOT WHAT YOU WOULD THINK.

This is NOT a religious or Republican/Democrat issue.

The proposed amendment to the Kansas Constitution will have ABSOLUTELY NO effect on same-sex marriage (which is already completely illegal in Kansas). Instead, the amendment is about employment benefits, and it will affect many more heterosexual than gay couples.

Section B of the proposed amendment states that “no relationship, other than a marriage, shall be recognized by the state as entitling the parties to the rights or incidents of marriage.” Many employers will see this as state sanction for denying benefits to unmarried partners of their employees, whether heterosexual or homosexual.

i_mango_x For the KU students amoung us:

I know a lot of students live off-campus, but for those who do not, I will be a freshman next year living on-campus and well...what are the chances that I actually get my first, or even second, preference? I am currently filling out my housing contract while researching halls and such, but I am thinking there is just no point. I will be a measly freshman and I will probably end up in a double room [Exactly what I do not want.] in a big, busy hall. Right?

Hi everyone,
My name is Devin and I'm a seventeen-year-old Senior at a normal ole high school in Northern Virginia. Why did I join this community? Well...I was just accepted to my top choice college, KU, of course. It was the only place I applied and visited because I've fallen in love with Lawrence over and over again. I couldn't imagine my college (And probably beyond.) life anywhere else. So basically, I'm just posting to introduce myself, but also looking for any advice KU students may have for incoming freshman...either general college advice or specific KU advice.
I can't wait to join all of you next fall! Rock chalk, jayhawk! <3

I just wanted to tell everyone about the new community, Kansas_18to25. It is a community for all college students and young adults (from 18 to 25) in Kansas! Here, we will talk about local college parties, concerts and other events going on in the state, how the sports teams in Kansas are doing, and much, much more. Anything goes, as long as it's somehow related to Kansas or the people here! Please join, and feel free to recruit as many other members as you'd like! We're hoping to make this one of the biggest communities for young Kansas adults on the web! Thanks. :-)
