Am I Really a Senior Already?
Yesterday I updated my Facebook status, which I commonly do, but after I wrote it, it made me come to a realization—my college career is almost over!
“It has officially started… I’m going to my first senior “going away” event… and this is only the first of many to come…Can’t believe graduation just over three weeks away AAH! Senior Salute for Purdue Athletics tonight!”
After this realization that I will be forced to grow up soon, I thought it would be a good idea to write my next blog about the unique senior events I will be getting the privilege to attend during the next couple of weeks.
- Senior Salute:
As my status says, the first event was last night. I am a student assistant in the Sports Information Office here at Purdue so last night we got to attend the “Senior Salute” banquet with all of the other seniors in Purdue Athletics. It was a really neat experience! We had a wonderful dinner up in the Shivley Club of Ross Ade Stadium and as our gift, we were granted a complimentary one-year membership to the John Purdue Club!
The Purdue Alumni Association and PASE are sponsoring a free event for seniors today where they will be giving away free Subway as well as giveaways, and useful information for life after graduation. It was supposed to be in Memorial Mall, but due to weather, it is now in the Armory from 11am-2pm. Can’t wait to get my free subway and try to win some prizes!
3. Ag Comm Junior/Senior Dinner:
Every year in the agricultural communications department, we have a end-of-the-year dinner for all juniors and seniors in the major. We use this as a good opporutunity to share some senior experiences with the juniors and give them a peek into what they can look forward to next year. Some of our faculty and staff also attend this event so it is another good way to better connect with them and build resources for the future. This year our event will be tonightat 6:00 at Toscana Italian Grill & Bar. I’m definitely excited to spend some quality time with my Ag Comm family!
These are just a few of the special events I get to attend this week, and there are many more to come as graduation quickly approaches. It’s going to be a scary, yet exciting couple of weeks!

Stay dry everyone!
