Homecoming at Creighton

With Homecoming this week at Creighton we thought we’d take a look back at a few of the Homecoming floats throughout the years.

1953 Phi Rho Sigma float

This first photo shows a float designed by Phi Rho Sigma for the 1953 Homecoming parade.

1955 Hansel Gretel Float

The story of Hansel and Gretel was the inspiration behind this float in 1955.

1960HomecomingBluejayFloatCreighton’s School of Pharmacy built this float which featured the battle cry of “Beat the Coyotes*” for the 1960 Homecoming celebrations.

If you have any photos of floats or other Homecoming celebrations be sure to let us know, we’d love to add to our collection.

*We want to make it clear that we here in the Creighton Archives do not condone any sort of violence against coyotes.
