The University of Kansas will celebrate its 110th Homecoming Sept. 26-Oct.1, culminating in the KU football game against Iowa State Oct. 1 in David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium.

The KU Alumni Association and the Homecoming Steering Committee will coordinate Homecoming activities, led by Paige Freeman, the Association’s director of student 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 both in-person and online events, including the Jayhawk Career Network’s Kyou Networking Week, which helps alumni and students connect based on shared industries, affinity and interests. Another Homecoming highlight will be the selection of student finalists for the Excellence in Community, Education and Leadership (Ex.C.E.L.) Awards. The winners will be announced during halftime of the football game Oct. 1.

This year’s celebration includes Best Western Plus-West Lawrence as the exclusive hotel category presenting sponsor.

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