MAJOR: Business Management

NOMINATED BY: Sigma Chi Fraternity

Hey Bobcats! I’m Chris Eddlemon, and I’m a candidate for your 2015 Homecoming Royalty Court. I couldn’t think of going to any better school than MSU, hence why I bleed Blue and Gold. I am also very involved on campus. Since my freshman year, I have been a part of the Sigma Chi Fraternity, Rockstar Energy, and an Orientation Leader. In my free time I like to ride unicorns on the beach, fly my hot-air balloon, and surf the stellar waves of Bozeman Beach. I also enjoy camping up in Hyalite, riding four wheelers, and many other outdoor activities we have in our great town of Bozeman, Montana. I am excited for this year’s Homecoming events, and would greatly appreciate your vote!
