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! The day kicks off with a massive all-campus scavenger hunt. All classes are cancelled and students, faculty and staff are invited to take part in games, food and lots of fun!
