Approximately how many blades of grass are on KU's campus?

Great question! Now you know we didn't go out and count...but we did some math and come up with 130 billion. Here, let's break it down for you: There are about 108,900,000 blades in an acre and the campus is about 1100 acres. Approximately 65% of KU's campus is grass-covered; thus, there are around 129,863,500,000 blades on campus!
