Several celebratory events are held for the Senior Class during the academic year, as well as during the days just prior to Commencement (commonly known as “Senior Week”). The planning for these programs is a joint effort of the Senior Class Officers and staff from the Office of Campus Life, Dean’s Office and College Relations, with additional logistical support from many campus offices including Campus Safety, Dining Services, Facilities, and others.
