Throwback Thursday: Homecoming 1972

Posted on Jun 26, 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 theme Throwback Thursday, a popular trend on social media sites like Twitter and Instagram where users post old pictures of themselves.

Homecoming 1972 surely holds very special memories for anyone who was able to see Ray Charles and Della Reese in Hoch Auditorium for the annual Homecoming concert.



The KU football team lost to No. 15 Iowa State 8-34.

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.
