Homecoming sign competition 2016
KU’s 104th Homecoming kicked off Sunday, Oct. 16 with a non-perishable food drive, a scavenger hunt around campus and campus buildings and Greek houses glowing with crimson and blue lights.

The annual Sign Competition took place Oct. 17 on Wescoe Beach. Greek organizations and student life groups paired up to paint Homecoming-themed murals on plywood boards, which were judged based on the quality of the work and depiction of this year’s theme, Rock Chalk Super Hawk.

The winning masterpiece in the student life competition was by Omega Phi Alpha and Beta Upsilon Chi. In the Greek life division, first place was awarded to Phi Gamma Delta, Alpha Gamma Delta, Lambda Chi Alpha, and Sigma Delta Tau. Their sign is pictured above. Alpha Delta Pi, Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Delta Lambda Phi took second place, while Sigma Kappa, Pi Kappa Alpha and the Multicultural Greek Council finished in third place.
