Throwback Thursday: Move-In 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 28,000 images from KU’s University Archives and made them available online; be sure to check them out!

Welcome (back) to KU, new and returning Jayhawks! Today is Move-In Day and – while we’re not entirely sure what these fellows are doing or where they’re going – we think this week’s picture captures the spirit of returning to campus for a new school year.
