Student Bonfire is Saturday NightFeatured Stories, News Friday, January 17th, 2014
Postponed due to rainy weather last fall, the off campus Student Bonfire takes place Saturday night.
Spokesman Dion McInnis says this is the first January bonfire that is open to the public with a full-blown program, crediting financial support.
The burn night speaker is Frank Cox, class of 1965, who is a former head yell leader and head stack for bonfire.
McInnis says like last year, the charge for admission depends when you arrive.
Those who arrive Saturday between noon and 4 p.m. pay nothing. The cost between 4 and 6 p.m. is $10 per car, and between 6 and 11 p.m. it’s $20 per car.
This is the third time in the last four years student bonfire was not held during football season.
McInnis was pleased to see 400 participate in the first stack shift. 1,600 invitations were sent to assist construction.
