Jeremy Amstutz, grandson of Mary Amstutz, this year's May Day king

Bluffton University’s annual May Day ceremony is moving to a new time this year—1:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 2—but its traditional elements remain the same, including the crowning of a king and queen and the Maypole dance by first-year students.

Filling those roles this year are seniors Jeremy Amstutz of Cassopolis, Mich., and Julia Thomas of Springfield, Ohio—the May Day king and queen—and 16 first-year students who will perform the Maypole dance.
