Student Bonfire is off campus in Bryan.

On Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2020 Student Bonfire held their annual Burn Night five days before the Aggie football team is set to kickoff against the LSU Tigers. Following a reading of “The Last Corps Trip,” the 2020 Bonfire was set ablaze. During the burn, students had a Yell Practice and enjoyed seeing all of their hard work pay off.
