Let’s light up KU with our light blue on Monday, April 2, in support of World Autism Awareness Day! Join the Graduate Center and Sharadin Arts Building as they support the cause with blue lights for the day; wear your light blue t-shirts, sweatshirts, or bandanas. Anything light blue will show your support of World Autism Awareness Day.
