CEDAR HILL, Texas – On Tuesday, April 17, at Penn Farm in Cedar Hill State Park approximately 70 Northwood University students attended the bonfire hosted by the Northwood Student Government Association (SGA).

After parking the students enjoyed walking through the trails that surround historic Penn Farm before reaching the field in which the bonfire was held. Upon arriving, the students roasted marshmallows and hotdogs; played soccer, horseshoes and volleyball; or just relaxed and talked with friends by the fire.

Bailey Bearden, a senior marketing major at Northwood, said, “The bonfire was a lot of fun. Definitely one of the best events I’ve been to all year.”

Abby Babbit, Northwood’s director of leadership and development, stated, “The SGA bonfire was a big hit. It was so enjoyable for me to see the students relaxing and having a great time. It is definitely an event we will make a tradition from now on.”
