WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - If you ever find yourself eating at Bruno's Pizza, then you could find yourself getting served by Purdue's newest Homecoming Queen.
Maureen Jones was crowned the 2013 Purdue Homecoming Queen this weekend. Jones is a senior who is a double major in special education and elementary education.
She said the honor of being named Homecoming Queen hasn't hit her just yet.
"It all went by so fast, which to me, I think that means that we're all having fun," said Jones. "So, I guess that's a good thing. To be Purdue Homecoming Queen, it's kind of an unreal honor. I never really pictured myself in this position, but defiantly a surreal feeling and I'm absolutely honored to be chosen to be it."
In order to be eligible, candidates must be in good academic standing and meet a GPA requirement.
