Title

Sigma Alpha Epsilon Homecoming lawn display, ""Beat Kansas,"" Sweepstakes Winner, 1962

Description

The three figures in Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Iowa Gamma Chapter's display are modeled on Don Martin's characters in Mad Magazine. There are two standing and one seated figure who is playing bongo drums. A sign in front of the display reads, ""Beat Kansas.""
Alumni first began returning to Iowa State for an official Homecoming in 1912. Since then, the celebration continues to entertain both young and old Iowa Staters, with traditional events, including tailgate parties, fireworks, lawn displays, ""Yell Like Hell"" cheering competition, and mass campaniling. Currently, the Student Alumni Association Leadership Council coordinates the efforts of hundreds of students, who volunteer their time to help Story County Habitat for Humanity build a house.
