Rescheduled bonfire helps close last Lions home game

Despite the cold weather, many students made it to the rescheduled Homecoming bonfire on Friday, Nov. 5, to close out the Lions' football season at home. The event featured fireworks, hot chocolate and a live band performance.

"My favorite part of the bonfire was singing with my friends along with the band," freshman Richelle Brown said. "I had a blast."

Fireworks were placed within the bonfire so that they would go off throughout the night. Students were not the only ones who enjoyed the event. Honors College Dean Dr. Raymond Green attended with his daughter.

"I decided to go because I've always enjoyed fireworks," Green said. "Also, my little girl is really into fire right now, so she was excited to get to come."

Once the fire was going, the band began performing some of the latest hits from Katy Perry and The Black Eyed Peas, and some old favorites by Journey.

"Even though it was so cold, everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves by singing and dancing along with the band," freshman Jesse Jackson said. "The band seemed to be a big hit."

Although it didn't last long, the bonfire was entertaining and brought students together before the last home football game.

"I'm glad I ended up going," freshman Mayra Ramirez said. "I was a good opportunity to mingle with other students and bring an end to the football season. "
