The Senior Brunch: Graduating Class of 2014

The Senior Brunch: Graduating Class of 2014

At the end of every academic year, the Honors Program gathers to celebrate and bid farewell to the current senior class at a brunch held at the Red Lion at the Park. Each graduating senior is presented with the honors medal and tells those gathered the degree they will be graduating with, the title of their thesis, what they will be doing after graduation, a piece of advice for younger honors students, and their favorite memory of their time in the Honors Program. At the end of the brunch, a picture is taken of the senior class wearing their medals. This picture is framed and hung in the honors house along with all the previous graduating classes.
