Title

Sigma Chi lawn display, ""I.S.C. tilts K-State"", Homecoming, 1949

Description

A large windmill with KS written on the front and an ISC sword-carrying knight on horseback are depicted in this Sigma Chi, Beta Omicron Chapter's lawn display. A sign across the front of the display reads, ""I.S.C. tilts K-State."" A student is standing on the right as a group gathers in front of the garage to view the display.
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.
