Title

Stevenson House homecoming lawn display of Now is the Hour to Beat the Jayhawks, 1958

Description

The Stevenson House Homecoming display of ""Now is the Hour to Beat the Jayhawks"" won first place in the Men's Residence Association, 1958. Students are shown working on the display, located in front of Friley Hall. It features a large cuckoo clock in which Cy strikes the Kansas University Jayhawk when both emerge from the clock.
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.
