Throwback Thursday: Ice Cream Cone Edition
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!
The fall equinox may be tomorrow, but we’re still experiencing hot weather on Mount Oread. Luckily, though, tomorrow is also National Ice Cream Cone Day! Celebrate and cool off with a delicious cold treat, just like the KU students in this week’s photograph.

Caitlin, is there a tour of the campus buildings as the sun comes up, or am I thinking of another season change? Seems it is when the weather is always unbearably cold. Thanks, Rita Wilson

Hi Rita! I think the campus tour takes place on Stop Day at the end of the Spring semester. Here is information about the 2016 tour: https://news.ku.edu/2016/05/04/stop-day-tour-will-offer-perspective-seven-liberal-arts.
