Perhaps the most famous chant in all of college sports, “Rock Chalk Jayhawk” has been in use in its current form at the University of Kansas for over 130 years. Chemistry professor E.H.S. Bailey started the legendary chant for his KU Science Club back in 1886. After several minor updates to the wording and cadence, the yell was adopted by the entire University of Kansas a year later. You can still hear the iconic words ring out in unison at Allen Fieldhouse after the students sway and sing the alma mater.
