Throwback Thursday: Fall Colors Edition

October 19th, 2017

Each week we’ll be posting a photograph from University Archives that shows a scene from KU’s past. We’ve also scanned more than 34,800 images from KU’s University Archives and made them available online; be sure to check them out!

It’s starting look like autumn on Mount Oread, with leaves and colors similar to the scene in this week’s picture!

Each week we’ll be posting a photograph from University Archives that shows a scene from KU’s past. We’ve also scanned more than 1,700 images from KU’s University Archives and made them available online; be sure to check them out!

The official beginning of autumn may still be almost two weeks away, but this week we’re getting a preview of cooler fall-like weather on Mount Oread. Who else is ready for sweaters, colorful leaves, and pumpkin-flavored treats?
