LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – For the first time in decades, the University of Kansas will not have a booth at the Kansas State Fair.

In the past, Kansas would spend about $2,500 to rent a booth space in one of the commercial buildings. Representatives would use the space to meet people and hand-out items meant to encourage people to attend or support the university.
