The Boys and Girls Club of Benton County took nine Keystone Club members to the University of Kansas in Lawrence during the first week of August. KU staff gave the teens an hour-long presentation about the school, how to apply for admission, finances, and college life. The group was treated to a walking tour of the campus with a visit to the bookstore at the end of the tour. After the walking tour, the Keystone Club visited the Hall of Fame in the Allen Fieldhouse, home of the Jayhawks. A trip highlight was seeing the actual Jayhawk basketball court from the second floor. The whole three-hour tour was was a great opportunity to experience the postsecondary education environment. The group also seized the opportunity to experience the Lawrence downtown area, where they dined at PepperJax.
