A weeklong celebration for graduating seniors

Congratulations seniors! You’re near the end of your undergraduate journey at Northeastern. Now is the time to revel in these final days before Commencement, and Senior Week is just the ticket.

Here’s a rundown of some of the events planned over the next week leading up to Commencement on May 6.

Scavenger hunt

Take one last tour of Northeastern’s campus during the NU Senior Bucket List Challenge Scavenger Hunt. This free event, on Sunday, May 1, from noon to 3 p.m., gives teams of five the opportunity to run around campus and take pictures for the chance to win prizes.

The scavenger hunt starts at Centennial Common and free tickets are available on myNEU.

CommencementFest 2016

Sponsored by the Office of Alumni Relations, this festive celebration will take place on Centennial Common on Thursday, May 5, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Graduating seniors and their families are invited to attend this free event and enjoy food, fun, and camaraderie with the Northeastern community.

Northeastern night at Fenway Park

Northeastern will be well represented at Fenway Park on Saturday as the Red Sox will host Northeastern night. In addition to watching the Sox take on the New York Yankees, attendees will get to hear Meghan Bruckman, E’16, the winner of NU Idol, sing the National Anthem prior to the game. Northeastern’s Liberty Battalion ROTC will present the colors.

Michael Counihan, DMSB’16, and Sarah DiCioccio, SSH’16, will throw the first pitch and Ben Gowaski, E’16, will give the “play ball” charge.

Other excursions and activities planned next week for seniors include a cap decorating event on May 5, a day trip to Newport, Rhode Island, and a boat cruise around Boston Harbor. Due to popularity, tickets are no longer available for these events.
