What is the meaning of life?

You flatter us by asking.

If you take the advice of Curly, from City Slickers, "It's one thing...and you gotta figure out what that one thing is."

Here is a pretty intense Wikipedia answer.

But, you want KU Info's take on it? Well, understand that it comes with a bias towards the notion that KU Info is the center of the universe. So the meaning of life must be a combination of two theories: 1) information is king, so the meaning of life is a journey toward ultimate knowledge... and 2) KU is possibly the coolest place anywhere, so the meaning of life is a journey towards happiness which can best be found at the University of Kansas.

Enjoy the journey!
