Starting on Apr. 25, Saint Leo University offered the class of 2017 one last hurrah. The much anticipated “Senior Week” offered up slew of events for departing seniors, all leading up to the graduation ceremonies on Apr. 28 and 29.
Throughout the week, seniors were invited to participate in some summer time activities, such as the annual senior vs. staff/faculty softball game and barbeque, graduation cap decorating, a pool party and pizza, senior bingo, and an all-night trip to Universal City Walk. Seniors were able to kick off their summer and pal around with friends one last time before grabbing their diplomas and continuing their lives beyond Leo.
During the week, Nicole Alvarez, graduating senior and cherished member of the Lions’ Pride Newspaper, reflected fondly on her time at the University.
“Four years ago, I applied to Saint Leo University not only because the campus and small class sizes appealed to me, but also I believed Saint Leo could provide me with something, and it has,” she said. “I am leaving Saint Leo with invaluable knowledge and memories that I will forever cherish and hold with me.”
