First Annual Senior Salute a Success
April 19, 2004
Mount Union seniors were given the opportunity to accomplish many of the important tasks accompanying graduation during the first annual "Senior Salute," held last week in the Main Lounge of the Hoover-Price Campus Center.
The "Senior Salute" allowed graduating senior students to meet with various offices on campus, such as financial aid, and pick up their caps and gowns in preparation for commencement on May 9. In addition, they were able to enjoy music and food and register to win great prizes.
Ninety-seven percent of the graduating seniors attended the event. The alumni office personally greeted each student and encouraged each one to remain active with the College after as graduation. Students had the opportunity to have senior pictures taken in their cap and gown, order graduation announcements and pick up commencement tickets for family and friends.
The Office of Annual Giving received pledges for the senior gift and 170 students signed a pledge card to work for employers who are involved in social and justice awareness.
The event provided a convenient "one-stop shop" for seniors who are typically very busy during the end of the spring semester with finals and senior projects in addition to preparation for life after college.
