Throwback Thursday: Homecoming 2001

Posted on Apr 17, 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.

The 2001 Homecoming theme was “A ‘Hawk Odyssey.” The photo featured in today’s post is a float created and built by members of Chi Omega sorority and Phi Kappa Theta fraternity for the Homecoming Parade, which was held before the football game. The Jayhawks fell to the #3-ranked Sooners 10-38.


 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.
