After nearly eight months of meetings with staff, students and community members, Wichita State University has developed a new plan that will be used to shape the future of the university.

On September 5, 2012, WSU President John Bardo kicked off a campus and community-wide strategic planning process. He appointed a steering committee made up of WSU personnel, community and business leaders, plus others with a stake in the future of WSU and the region.

Malcolm Armstead and his Wichita State teammates told each other they could be a Final Four team last summer.

They rolled past La Salle 72-58 in the West Regional semifinals on Thursday night. Next up is No. 2 seed Ohio State in Saturday's regional final.

"It's a big game and I am feeling another upset," reserve guard Nick Wiggins said. "We belong here."

A group of students met Saturday at Wichita State University for the 13th annual Mindstorms Challenge, a Lego robotics competition. The challenge is designed to encourage students to study science, technology, engineering and math, while promoting teamwork.

The theme for the event was “The WuShock, an Unexpected Journey” with teams like The Bilbot Baggins of Andovershire.

“We started working the weekend they released the courses, which was mid-January, and we’ve been meeting at least a couple of times a week since then,” says Bob Elsburnd, a parent and team coach.
