What isÌýHurst Day?
Youâ€™ll awake to the sound of bagpipes and see the Hurst Day flag flying high. Hurst Day shows up unexpectedly every fall semester, surprising everyone on campus with a day of canceled classes, contagious fun, and electric Laker pride.
The Hurst is transformed into a carnival-like atmosphere with games, inflatable slides, jumps, obstacle courses, a dunk tank, rock walls, bungee runs, music, food, and prizes. The day is capped off with a delicious steak dinner for all to enjoy. We encourage students to participate in all of the excitement of Hurst Day beginning their freshman year. Youâ€™ll probably even see your professors playing games and hanging out in Trinity Green throughout the day.
