Hello fellow bobcats! My name is Shannon Bangen and I was nominated by the Advocat organization for your 2015 Homecoming Royalty Court.

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.

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.
