Cornhuskin’

1950s Cornhuskin'Cornhuskin’ started in 1945 as the Cornhuskin’ Bee.  Originally Cornhuskin’ was a series of contests combined with folk dancing and singing. In 1966 the word “Bee” was dropped from the name.  Once only being a one day event, in 1971 Cornhuskin’ became a week-long event. Today, Cornhuskin’ is still a popular tradition that consists of contests, skits, a parade, and other activities that promote both inter-class competition and unity.  This year Cornhuskin' will take place the week of November 2-6.  To learn more about the history of Cornhuskin’ click on the links below or visit the College Archives.
