The ACU Alumni Association and Student Alumni Association will conduct the Senior Send-Off at 5:30 p.m. on April 26 at the Bob and Shirley Hunter Welcome Center veranda.
The event is intended to launch the class of 2012 into their futures with blessings and encouragement from their fellow classmates. The Alumni Associations of the university want to help seniors celebrate their upcoming graduation and welcome them into the university alumni family.
Light hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served during the event. Lawn games including croquet, horseshoes and bocce ball will also be set up for guests to enjoy.
“I’m excited for Senior Send-off and graduation,” said Tiffany Steinkamp, senior nursing major from Fredericksburg. “It will be nice to catch up with friends and celebrate our hard work and accomplishments while at ACU. But at the same time it’s bittersweet to think about my final days at ACU.”
Attire for the event is dressy casual. Men are asked to wear pants or khakis with a dress shirt or polo. Women should wear casual dresses or dressy separates. This event is reserved for graduating seniors only and attendees are asked not to bring dates.
“A piece of advice I would tell underclassmen is to take advantage of all of the opportunities offered at ACU,” said Ashton Hall, senior education and biology major from Austin. “It’s undoubtedly a wonderful place and full of good memories.”
A brief program will begin at 6:3o p.m., followed by prize drawings. Seniors are encouraged to register online before April 25, so that they can have a chance to win an iPad 2. There will also be several other door prizes given away that evening. For more information, go to www.acu.edu/alumni/events/senior-sendoff/.
