Mastering the Art of Bell-Ringing at KU

Earlier this spring, thousands of bell towers were ringing at college graduations all across the country. But Quasimodo wasn't pulling the ropes. At most places, the bell chimes are simply recordings. But that's not the case at the University of Kansas. KU is one of just a handful of schools that offers a carillon class. KU Journalism Professor Dawn Fallik recently climbed the 80 stairs of the university's bell tower to find out who’s been making music at KU for the past 14 years.
