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 2019 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 22: Hanging in Palm Court
11:00 a.m. - Palm Court
Come hang out with the Class of 2019 in Palm Court to start off Senior Week! Enjoy free food and fun music. If you have a hammock, bring it and some friends to hang with! If not, don’t worry, we’ve got you! Lunch will be served, as well as other entertainment. There will be dietary options available for our vegan and gluten-free students.
Tuesday, April 23: 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'oeuvres 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 professional. The event is open to only senior students and no family or guests.
Wednesday, April 24: GOLD is the New GREEN
2:00 p.m. - Stetson Room, CUB
GOLD is the new GREEN! As the Class of 2019 transitions into being Graduates Of the Last Decade, we get seniors ready for the real world! Connect with resources in Career & Professional Development and Alumni Engagement through our immersive monochrome spaces. Make sure to take plenty of photos! Seniors will also have a chance to connect with other GOLD and young alumni in their Hatter Network.
Students will have the opportunity to sign out of the Book of Seniors, 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!
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 #SUGradCap19 on Facebook and Instagram, and tag Stetson University Alumni Association, for a chance to win a Stetson diploma frame, an Amazon Echo, or a $75 Amazon gift card.
Thursday, April 25: Night Out

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!
