It’s homecoming week! A lot of students might be quite familiar about the various programs listed out for homecoming, from the homecoming royalty, to the homecoming bonfire, homecoming parade and all sorts. 

The homecoming bonfire has been going on for so many years that it has become a homecoming tradition at MSU. 

Speaking with one of the Student Events Team members, Brandon Weideman, he said, “The bonfire is the event that kick starts the homecoming week. It’s going to take place at the Blasklee Stadium across campus at 8 p.m. There’s going to be a 25 feet tall bonfire, probably the biggest you will ever see, and a laser light show which is a new thing that was added this year. There will also be will fireworks immediately after and it promises to be a lot of fun.”

For MSU students this sure seems like a good night to go out with friends and enjoy a night of fire, food and fun.

Alongside the bonfire is the homecoming royalty, and you have an opportunity to choose who your homecoming royalty is by voting for your choice.

Posters of candidates are posted around the CSU and voting starts on Monday the 23 of September and closes on Wednesday the 26 of September.

Winners would be announced at the coronation and lip sync battle on Thursday September 27th at the Bresnan Arena.

This homecoming week event promises to be loads of fun as it also celebrates the 150th year of MSU.
