Throwback Thursday: Homecoming 2007

Posted on Jun 5, 2014 in Campus 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.

The 2007 Homecoming Parade took place on Jayhawk Boulevard on a beautiful fall day. The Homecoming theme this year was “Jayhawk Nation,” and the float pictured below depicted a Jayhawk version of Uncle Sam.

Governor Kathleen Sebelius, g’80, served as the parade’s Grand Marshal.
