Homecoming 2017

KU Homecoming: October 1-7, 2017

The University of Kansas will celebrate its 105th Homecoming Oct. 1-7, 2017, culminating in the KU football game against Texas Tech University Oct. 7 in Memorial Stadium. This year’s theme is “Jayhawks of the Galaxy.”

The KU Alumni Association and a student-led steering committee will coordinate the week of Homecoming activities. Jacey Krehbiel, assistant director of membership and business development, serves as advisor to the steering committee. KU’s Homecoming tradition began in 1912. In 2011, Rich and Judy Billings of Lakewood, Colo., both 1957 KU graduates, created an endowment to fund future editions of Homecoming.
