Recent graduates Laila Tawfik, c’14; Alicia Genilo, c’15; Amber Thulin, c’15; Sarah Kenning, c’14; and Jenny Rider, d’15, proudly wore their crimson and blue and displayed a KU flag during school spirit orientation day at the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis.
Tawfik explains that the five friends, who knew of one another through the pre-optometry club at KU, have become closer since arriving in Memphis. Together they make KU one of the two most-represented universities in their class of 136 students.
“We met up before classes started, and we’ve all become really close since then,” she says of her fellow Jayhawks. “It’s really nice to have that connection with the other girls.”
