Congratulatory Events Held Prior to Commencement
May 05, 2012
On Friday, May 4, President Richard and Sandra Giese hosted a senior picnic at their home for the University’s Class of 2012. This yearly tradition provides graduating seniors with one last opportunity to get together with classmates and faculty members prior to Commencement.
Following the picnic, students headed over to Commencement rehearsal in the McPherson Academic and Athletic Complex in preparation for Baccalaureate and Commencement ceremonies on Saturday, May 5. The University is planning for a ceremony in which nearly 470 seniors will participate.
In addition, a senior send-off was held on Friday evening at the Elks Lodge in Alliance. This event allowed seniors to join with their fellow graduates, faculty and staff members and parents as they said farewell to a valuable and exceptional college experience.
