KU Homecoming: October 16-22, 2016
The University of Kansas will celebrate Homecoming Oct. 16-22, 2016, culminating in the KU football game against Oklahoma State University Oct. 22 in Memorial Stadium.
The KU Alumni Association and a student-led steering committee will coordinate the week of Homecoming activities. Jacey Krehbiel, assistant director of alumni programs, Homecoming and Kansas Honors Programs, serves as advisor to the steering committee. KU’s Homecoming tradition began in 1912.
This year’s Homecoming theme is “Rock Chalk Super Hawk.” Homecoming leaders will meet throughout the spring semester to finalize the schedule of activities, which will include competitions for student organizations, community service activities, various reunions, the Homecoming parade and pep rally, and the selection of 10 student finalists for the Excellence in Community, Education and Leadership Awards (ExCEL). The winners will be announced during halftime of the football game Oct. 22.
The Alumni Association will continue to update the Homecoming website as information becomes available.
