Homecoming Activities Continue With King And Queen Voting, Bonfire

Today is the day for students to begin to exercise their Ferris State University granted right to vote for king and queen for homecoming this year.

It's time for you, the people, to have your voices heard at the ballot box ... or online.

But, the fun is just beginning as tonight there will be the ever-popular bonfire taking place in Lot 61 by Brophy/McNerney at about 8 p.m.

Get out there and have some fun and celebrate with your fellow students.

Hey, you might as well ... besides ... it will probably be a lot of fun and you don't want to be "the one" to hear about it after the fact and wish you had attended.

King and Queen voting:

A special thanks goes out to the brothers of Sigma Pi Fraternity for collecting the pallets that and building the bonfire (as they do, annually). Good work guys!
