As the sun set on Wallis Filed Wednesday evening at Brenau University’s Gainesville campus, a bonfire flared up as cross country coach Susan McIntyre added fuel to the fire for the university’s second bonfire of the season.
The event started as a way to get more interaction between the Women’s College students and the student athletes on campus said Missy Lochstampfor, an administrative assistant in Brenau’s athletics department.
“We teamed up with student services and the event last year was a hit,” she said. “We hope to do one every year and make it a new tradition.”
The students enjoyed a bonfire, hot chocolate provided by the university’s catering service, Aramark, s’mores and some karaoke fun to round out their evenings.
