Jayhawk Buddy System logsThe Jayhawk Buddy System is designed to help everyone have a good time and stay safe. It is built on the longstanding tradition that Jayhawks look out for each other.

The vast majority of Jayhawks generally make safe choices while having a good time.  The intent of the Jayhawk Buddy System is to empower students to intervene when their friends are moving in a direction that is likely to result in arrest, injury or other undesirable consequences. An effective strategy is to intervene while buddies are still able to listen to reason.  Difficult situations can be averted by using protective behaviors
