What began in 1912 has grown into the biggest one-day event in the Dakotas, honoring the essence of the Jackrabbit Pride. The annual Hobo Day celebration has a long standing tradition on the campus of SDSU as well as in the Brookings community. As the spirit and energy of the tradition lives on, we encourage you to join students, alumni and future Jackrabbits as they celebrate Hobo Day with a show-stopping parade, Rally at the Rails, Hobo Day 5K and the all essential Jackrabbit football game. Leading up to the big game is Hobo Week, which includes numerous activities to bridge together the campus community and local residents.
Brush up on your Hobo Day history and feel free to add a few buttons to attire throughout the week!
