2016 Senior Graduation Banquet

Thursday, June 9, 2016 • 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
The Athenaeum, 551 South Hill Avenue

The graduating seniors host a banquet for their families and friends immediately following the President's Garden Reception.

Seating at the banquet will be assigned by the senior class co-presidents. You will receive your table number at the reception before dinner, or at dinner. Early reservations are important, since that will permit us to try to honor your seating request.
