The Hobo Day Committee

Continuing the Celebration

After 110 years, an event like Hobo Day relies on the spirit and energy of current students to carry the tradition and pass it on to future generations of jackrabbits. As always, "The Biggest One-Day Event in the Dakotas" is coordinated by the 18 student members of the Hobo Day Committee.
