Attention seniors, if you thought the first semester flew by, just wait until the second. Time is not in our favor, nor does it seem to slow down for us to enjoy the remaining months we have to spend with one another. As we approach second semester, we must realize that there are only 5 more months (not including the month of winter break) of college life left.
Luckily for the seniors, Merrimack’s student council has annually arranged a “senior send off week.” From May 13-May 16, seniors are offered a variety of activities and events that help make their remaining days at Merrimack ones to be remembered. These four days before graduation consist of on and off campus events including a trip to Mohegan Sun, a night out in Boston at Jillian’s Bowling Lanes, Odyssey Harbor Cruise in Boston, a field day, barbecue, and carnival on Merrimack’s campus.
Leading up to graduation and senior week, the class of 2014 is also presented other great events. February 7 is the 100 days mark until graduation. This monumental event invites the senior class to celebrate their last 100 Days as Merrimack college students with dancing, music, and a cash bar. Tickets for 100 Days are $15.
Along with 100 Days to Graduation, is of course, the senior formal. This year’s formal will be at the World Trade Center, across the street from the Boston Seaport Hotel, where students are encouraged to stay for the night. The senior formal is another fantastic night of dancing, a cash bar, and friends. Senior formal tickets are $90 a person.
Class Council President, Marissa DePaolo urges all seniors to be present during all the great events planned. “ This year’s senior week events consist of a lot of thought and planning! As a council, we wanted to make sure senior week would leave a lasting impression on your experience here at Merrimack and remind you of your Merrimack family!”
Senior week packages are now available to be purchased. The package includes all events that take place between May 13 and May 16 as well as room and board on Merrimack’s campus for the week, and a free Merrimack senior pinnie! The package is $250 when ordered by December 13. Any payments received after December 13 are $300, so be sure to order yours soon!
