Homecoming Week – A Look to the Past

Written by Laurinda Weisse, Special Projects Librarian

1957 Homecoming  ParadeAs UNK embarks on another year of Homecoming celebrations, we are excited to share some materials from years past. Check out our Pinterest page (http://www.pinterest.com/UNKLibrary/archives-homecoming/) for photos of parades, games, and decorations from throughout our institution’s history. Want to find evidence of those awesome clothes you rocked in college or the best float your organization ever built? Take a look at the Blue and Gold yearbooks, either digitally (http://library.unk.edu/archives/bluegold.php) or in person. My money for best float is on the smoke-breathing dragon from the 1957 Homecoming Parade. Copies of the Blue and Gold will be available in the library, along with refreshments, from 1:30-3:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 20th. If you’d like to see materials outside of these hours, please contact Laurinda Weisse at weissell@unk.edu or 865-8591. While the Archives tries to capture important campus events like Homecoming, we need your help! Donate your UNK related materials, and help document campus history.
