We Remember

On this Memorial Day weekend we remember the students and alumni that made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

War memorials on the Lawrence campus date back to the 1920s when the Memorial Corporation was formed to construct Memorial Stadium and the Kansas Memorial Union, both standing in tribute to Jayhawks that died during World War I.

Learn more about the war memorials on the KU campus, and Pioneer Cemetery (resting place of KU notables and Quantrill’s Raid victims), by reading the following articles:
