Gather a group of friends and join your fellow hobos in the VBR to showcase your creativity spirit and jackrabbit ingenuity through the homecoming cardboard building contest! Cardboard and duct tape will be provided, but groups are encouraged to bring their own supplies to make their unique cardboard structures. Groups will start building their structures at 7 p.m. and judging will take place around 9 p.m. Prizes will be awarded to the best builders in each of these four categories: best school spirit, tallest, hobo’s choice, and most creative!

  • WHEN: 7-10 p.m. on Wednesday, October 26
  • WHERE: VBR - Volstorff Ballroom (east side of the University Student Union)

Hobo Fashion Show

The Hobo fashion show will also make its annual appearance with judging being held just after the cardboard contest judging, around approximately 9:00 p.m. Show us your best hobo attire for a chance to win a prize!  

Please feel free to contact us with any questions about the Bum-Over. See you there!
