At 8 p.m. Friday the Student Government Association hosted a bonfire event open to the students of Sterling College. There was a mix up about where the event would be held, but it ended up behind Douglas Y.

The fire was set up and a nearby table held all the ingredients needed for s’mores and marshmallow roasters. Along with other snacks, there was plenty to eat as many students gathered around to socialize.

The event was overseen by Emma Birky, SGA’s campus activities director.

“I am in charge of all of the clubs on campus, and we have about 12,” Birky said.

The bonfire event has been something talked about in past years.

“This might be one of the first years where it’s actually been pretty successful. Especially having Capture the Flag after the bonfire, I think we get a lot more people to come,” Birky said.

The game of Capture the Flag involved students running around with different glow stick bracelets to show which team they were on. So many men from Kilbourn Hall showed up to play that the teams were divided into Kilbourn against everyone else.

Friday night’s activities lasted well into the night as students enjoyed themselves by the fire and out on the field for the game.

The next SGA event is the Homecoming Hangout. It will be located in the grass strip in front of Evans Hall starting at 11 a.m. There will be inflatables, face painting, pumpkin painting, and lots of other activities for students and the Sterling community.
