Student Involvement

Hippodrome

Hippodrome is WSU's longest standing tradition where groups of students write, produce and act out their own 20-25 minute skit.  In between each skit students perform variety acts in their own competition for cash prizes.  

Hippodrome first appeared in 1928 where students and organizations were invited to enter a stunt competition for a ten dollar prize. Today, students participate in skit competitions and special attractions, both of which showcase the many talents our students have on campus.  This traditional week used to be a one-day event but has since dramatically grown to include a full week’s worth of activities. The early years saw such events as wrestling and boxing matches, organizational booths and a country store. More recently, Hippodrome activities have included best legs competitions, hippo calling contests, ice cream socials and casino nights. Who knows what future events will bring to campus?
