What is Hurst Day?

Hurst Day is a surprise day jam-packed with games, contests, music, food, and community spirit. You'll know it's Hurst Day when you are awakened by the sound of bagpipers parading through campus and the Hurst Day flag is flying high! The day kicks off with a massive all-campus scavenger hunt. All classes are cancelled and students and employees are invited to take part in free games, food, and lots of fun!
