Make happy -- Bo Burnham is coming to Homecoming! Burnham, the distinguished comedian and entertainer, will speak at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 7, at the Anderson Center. It's a sold-out show and will feature Burnham discussing how he built his career.
Following last year’s return to Homecoming, fireworks will go off Saturday night to celebrate this awesome weekend. So before you head downtown for Bing Brews and Bands, make sure to take in this spectacular show. "You can see the fireworks from all over campus, and they will be beautiful!" said Jennifer Keegin, associate director for campus activities. The fireworks are shooting off from M Lot, so the best places to check them out are from Mountainview, Hillside, Hinman, the Harpur Quad fountain and the Events Center parking lot.
