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. Association staff members leading the effort are Paige Hofer, student programs coordinator, and Jacey Krehbiel, assistant director of alumni programs. KU’s Homecoming tradition began in 1912.

Homecoming leaders will meet throughout the spring semester to select a theme and 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.

Interested in serving on the Homecoming Steering Committee? Applications are now available and are due by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 28.



The Alumni Association will continue to update the Homecoming website as information becomes available.
