 Mark your calendars for the
 "Biggest One Day Event in the Dakotas!"

Homecoming thrives at South Dakota State University. Begun in 1912 and is the largest one day event in the state, the return of alumni to Alma Mater for a weekend of football, fun and memories has flourished and grown over the decades, embodying the essence of Jackrabbit Pride. The South Dakota State University Alumni Association is proud to play a central role in tradition of Hobo Day.
