Remarkable Roost

Posted on Dec 7, 2012 in Campus News and News

It’s time to fly over to Hilltop Child Development Center for their annual birdhouse auction. Most of these nice nests were created by students in Hilltop’s after school program, appropriately located in the Jayhawk Room. Bids can be placed in person or over the phone by calling (785) 864-4940 starting December 10. Bidding ends at 5:45 p.m. on Thursday, December 13, and money raised will go to the Hilltop Families in Need Holiday Fund and the American Red Cross. Pics of all the birdhouses can be viewed on Hilltop’s Facebook page at:

The birdhouse above, created by Hilltop teacher Mike Pisani, features Lippencott Hall on Jayhawk Blvd., named for KU’s fourth Chancellor. Originally built in 1905, students at the time asked that the building be named Green Hall to honor James Woods Green, then Dean of the School of Law and perhaps better known as “Uncle Jimmy Green.” In 1978, it was renamed Lippencott Hall. It now houses KU’s Office of Study Abroad, the Applied English Center and the Wilcox museum of classical antiquities. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
