Homecoming Chalk 'n' Rock 2015
For one day during Homecoming week every year, Wescoe Beach is transformed into a colorful palette of murals chalked by students.

Rain didn’t put a damper on this year’s competition—wet conditions forced the event to be rescheduled from Tuesday to Thursday, but creative Jayhawks still showed up to chalk designs depicting this year’s Homecoming theme, “Ghosts of Jayhawks Past.”

Participating organizations were assigned a square on Wescoe Beach and given four hours to create their masterpiece. Artistic talent was on display with spooky scenes, plenty of pumpkins and ghostly Jayhawks making appearances.

A panel of judges selected this year’s winners:

1st place, Student Life: Student Union Activities
2nd place, Student Life: KU School of Engineering
3rd place, Student Life: KU Dance Marathon

1st place, Greek Life: Alpha Chi Omega and Sigma Alpha Epsilon
2nd place, Greek Life: Kappa Alpha Theta and Sigma Nu
3rd place, Greek Life: Sigma Kappa and Delta Chi

Thanks to the organizations who participated in this year’s event! More photos are available on Flickr, and we captured some of the action in the short video embedded below. For a full list of Homecoming event and award winners, visit the Homecoming website.
