Throwback Thursday: Homecoming 2013

Posted on Feb 6, 2014 in Alumni News and News

KU’s 102nd Homecoming celebration will take place Sept. 21-27 of this year, and we thought it would be fun to share photos and stories from past Homecomings to help get alumni, students and fans excited. So, we’re participating in the internet meme Throwback Thursday, a popular trend on social media sites like Twitter and Instagram where users post old pictures of themselves.

Last year, the Homecoming Parade took place in downtown Lawrence for the first time since 1990. Hundreds of students, alumni, fans and community members turned out after the parade for a pep rally on 8th Street, which featured performances by the Marching Jayhawks and Spirit Squad, and remarks from Coach Weis.

Check back next week for another look at KU’s rich tradition of Homecoming! We’d love to see your Homecoming pictures and hear your stories. Submit them to us at, or tag your pictures with #kuhomecoming on Twitter or Instagram.
