WuShock celebrates Squirrel Appreciation Day

Friday, January 21, 2011

WuShock took time out of his busy schedule to recognize Squirrel Appreciation Day today (Friday, Jan. 21) by handing out squirrel treats to his furry friends on campus.

“I want to ensure that the squirrels that grace our campus are staying well fed this winter,” said WuShock.

One super-sized squirrel especially appreciated WuShock’s generosity. (see photo)

WuShock points out that Wichita State is home to more than 14,000 students and squirrels galore.

A number of WSU staff have helped feed squirrels, and students, faculty, staff and visitors to campus have enjoyed watching the squirrels scurry around campus for years.
