Ted Johnson's KU campus walking tour
Professor Emeritus Ted Johnson’s Stop Day walking tour, a beloved rite of spring on Mount Oread that all Jayhawks should experience at least once, is set for its annual renewal at 9 a.m. Friday in front of the Natural History Museum.

The tour, during which Johnson uses KU landmarks to spur discussion about timeless topics of the human experience, ventures to Lippincott Hall at 10; Twente Hall and the Prairie Acre at 11; and Watson Library at noon. A 1 p.m. lunch in The Underground will be followed by visits to various sites from Anschutz Library to the Chi Omega fountain at 2 and a journey from the fountain to Memorial Drive at 3.

Johnson’s tour visits the Campanile at 4 before concluding with a relaxing gathering in Spooner Hall’s Weaver Court at 5. As always, participants are free to join or depart the free marathon tour at any point along the way.

In the event of inclement weather, the tour will begin at 9 a.m. in Lippincott Hall with a visit to the Wilcox Classical Museum followed by lunch in the Kansas Union.
