Graduating from CSU is an exciting milestone and something to celebrate! And Celebrate! Seniors Week, which kicked off April 27, is an open celebration for all seniors graduating at any time during 2015.

“This week of events and programs is intended to be a showing of gratitude to our seniors, as well as an opportunity for them to engage in meaningful connections with their friends, the Alumni Association and other University leadership,” said John T. Rogers, assistant director for presidential events & student programs.

At 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 30, seniors can light their candle in celebration to signify their transformation from CSU student to alumni in the Senior Candlelight Celebration. President Tony Frank and the CSU Alumni Association will be celebrating with them as they prepare to join the family of more than 180,000 CSU alumni. Finish out the evening with live music by Pandas and People and a fun photo booth to capture these lasting memories.

Beginning at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 1, seniors have the opportunity to view a production of The Hobbit in the University Theatre at the University Center for the Arts. Seniors who show their cap and gown order receipt can get a theatre ticket for $5.

Senior Week concludes with a Commencement Concert at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 2, in the Lory Student Center Theatre. The independent trio, Radial Something, will headline the commencement concert. Radical Something is most well-known for their song, “No Sweat,” which reached No. 6 on the iTunes overall albums chart in 2012. The concert opener is Colorado hip hop artist, Splyt. All graduating seniors can get their free concert ticket online.
