What is Stampede?

Stampede is our version of New Student Orientation. Stampede is the best way for new students to get connected with their peers and upperclassmen and become acquainted with campus before classes begin. Stampede is the very best way for new students to experience HSU … plus, it will be the most fun week of the year! You won’t want to miss it!

When is Stampede?

Stampede will be August 21-24. Stampede will begin with Move-In Day on Wednesday, August 21st. More information about Move-In Day coming soon.

What Happens at Stampede?

There are plenty of things happening during the week of Stampede. Each new student will be placed into a group with two upperclassmen leaders and other new students. Throughout the day during the week these groups will have meet ups, eat meals together, and participate in all the fun activities that we have planned. Every evening we have our fun, big events that you will not want to miss. Here is an idea of what we have planned:

Wednesday evening: Block Party

Thursday evening: Gilbert Hunt

Friday evening: PAINT WARS

Saturday evening: Beanie Capping and Alumni Ice Cream Social
