Senior Week activities: Something for everyone

April 18, 2014

Senior Week is an open celebration for all seniors graduating at any time during 2014. Graduating from CSU is an exciting milestone something to celebrate!

CSU President Tony Frank will speak to seniors Monday night during the Candlelight Celebration on the Oval.Senior Week officially begins Monday, May 5, with a photo challenge kickoff on Instagram. Be part of the fun by using the hashtag #ForeverRams14 now and through graduation. CSU will be sharing the best pictures that use this hashtag throughout Senior Week on social media and other venues. Each day, photo challenge winners will be selected by CSU’s social media team and will receive free CSU gear.

“First-year students are welcomed to campus with orientation and a large festival. As students graduate and transition to alumni, we created Senior Week to celebrate the legacy these seniors will leave behind,” said Audrey Wilson, graduate coordinator for student advancement programs. “This is a way to say ‘thank you’ to seniors for their countless hours of service and hard work, and to offer comfort by reminding seniors they are forever Rams.”

A new take on an old classic

By using the #ForeverRams14 hashtag when sharing photos and tweets online, students will be creating CSU’s first crowd-sourced and digital story about the senior experience. Be on the lookout for the link to the online, pseudo-yearbook toward graduation.
