Homecoming week begins in just eleven short days! We hope that lots of loyal Jayhawks are planning to return to the Hill to help celebrate the festivities– but don’t worry, even if you can’t be here in person, you can still be here in spirit.

Homecoming 2013 hashtagsAlumni near and far are encouraged to participate in this year’s Homecoming events through social media. Whether you love to blog or prefer to share your thoughts in 140-character tweets, snap stylishly-filtered photos using Instagram or capture short snippets of video on Vine, we want to see Homecoming– either this year’s celebration or a look back in time– through your eyes.

Here’s how you can participate:

  • Use the hashtag #kuhomecoming in your tweets, status updates and other posts to social media sites
  • Email photos and stories to us at
  • Send us a link to your own blog posts about Homecoming and we’ll share them with alumni

We’re setting up a site to aggregate all of the social content that uses #kuhomecoming. It will be a quick and easy way for Jayhawks around the world to see what’s happening on campus, relive Homecoming memories and share their stories with others.

Be sure to like KU Homecoming on Facebook and follow @KU_Homecoming on Twitter, where we’ll also reshare our favorite content!
