Near the end of every spring semester, Stetson University dedicates an entire week to the celebration of the outgoing class. If you're graduating in December, don't worry -- you're invited to participate as well! Below is the 2018 Senior Week schedule. Be sure to stay tuned to this website and to the Alumni Association Facebook page for the latest details. #HatterGrad
Monday, April 23: Bring Your Own Blanket
noon - Stetson Green
Seniors will gather on the Green to enjoy free food and live karaoke-style music, from classmates. If you have a picnic blanket feel free to bring it. If you forget your blanket, don't worry, we've got you!
There will be dietary options available for our vegan and gluten-free students.
Tuesday, April 24: Senior Toast
5:00 p.m. - President's House
Senior Week's signature event, the Senior Toast, will take place at the President's Home beginning at 5 p.m. The toast, which also includes hors d'ouevres and desserts, will celebrate your time at Stetson as a Hatter and induct you into a very select group of people we call Stetson Alumni.
Seniors, you'll also have the chance to have your professional photos taken. Remember to celebrate responsibly and bring your government issued ID. Attire is business casual. The event is open to only senior students and no family or guests.
Wednesday, April 25: Senior Splash
2 p.m. - 5 p.m. - Hollis Center lounge and pool
Seniors can kick back and relax poolside with friends while enjoying some refreshing popsicles. There will be several pool activities, fun inflatables and cool vibes for a chill day. The senior raffles start today, so make sure you head over to the Hollis Center to enter and win!
Thursday, April 26: Night Out
9 p.m. - midnight - Persimmon Hollow
The guys at the Hollow have invited us over for an evening of memory making and fun. If a ride is needed, shuttle service will pick up from the LBC (running from 9 p.m. until 12:00 a.m.). Feel free to invite faculty and staff!
Remember to celebrate responsibly and bring your government issued ID!
Friday, April 27: Sign Out & Cappy Hour
2 p.m. - 5 p.m. - Lynn Business Center Roof
Seniors line up and climb to the top of the Lynn Business Center, take pictures, hang out, and enjoy the view. Students will also be allowed to sign the Book of Seniors in the LBC lobby prior to climbing to the roof. The "Book of Seniors" is a large, leather-bound book where the signatures of outgoing seniors are kept. Students are allowed to write whatever they like - draw pictures, write quotes, etc. The book is kept and passed down each year to the next class. Most students write encouraging words to future graduating classes. Show up later and watch the sunset across campus!
Additionally, seniors will have the chance to decorate their graduation caps, with supplies on hand, all while snacking on some tasty treats. Don't forget to post a photo of your graduation cap using #SUGradCap18 on Facebook and tag Stetson University Alumni Association. The top three winners will be selected by Alumni staff and announced during Senior Celebration on Wednesday, May 9 at the Meadows Alumni House. Prizes will be awarded for the cap with the most Stetson pride, best inspirational quote, and most creative design! The winners will get to choose between a Stetson diploma frame, an Amazon Echo, or a $75 Amazon gift card.
Please refrain from wearing skirts, dresses, or heels to this event. There's a bit of climbing required to gain access to the roof.
