Tickets are on sale now for the 2013 Commencement Concert featuring Elephant Revival, set for 7:30 p.m. May 4 in the Lory Student Center Theatre.
Elephant Revival, a Colorado-based folk band, is known for incorporating elements of gypsy, rock, Celtic, alternative country and folk into their music.
Each year, the Association for Student Activity Programming strives to bring students a genre of music they prefer based on data collected from student surveys.
“Elephant Revival was chosen as a result of voluntary surveys taken by over 1,000 CSU students,” said Kebrina Chirdon, concert coordinator for ASAP. “The results concluded folk music is now a genre of music that is becoming increasingly popular among college-age people.”
Tickets are free for seniors graduating spring, summer, or fall 2013 with a valid CSU ID. Tickets are $5 for non-graduating students, faculty and staff. Tickets are available at the iBox in the Lory Student Center on campus. Doors open at 7 p.m.
The concert is the last event for Celebrate! Seniors Week, a new program coordinated by the Student Alumni Associates and the Office of CSU Events and Constituent Engagement.
“New students are welcomed to CSU with a great deal of fanfare and relevant programming. As graduating students prepare to leave CSU, we felt it was important to mark the milestone with our Celebrate! Seniors Week,” said Lindsay Sell, assistant director for Student Advancement Programs in the Office of CSU Events and Constituent Engagement.
“The week of programming offers opportunities to celebrate hard work and achievement, be reflective and thoughtful about next steps, participate in meaningful CSU traditions and thank those who have been instrumental in a student’s progression toward degree attainment,” said Sell. “While this is the first year of this programming, we look forward to continuing the tradition of celebrating seniors in future years.”
Activities planned for Celebrate! Seniors Week, include:
“Connecting with the Alumni Association to create an atmosphere that acknowledges and appreciates the work graduating students have put into making their mark at CSU is an honor,” said Chirdon.
