    Senior Week gives opportunity to experience Eye Street one last time

    With the recent headline of seniors being back on campus everyday, seniors are finally getting the opportunity to finish off their academic years as a community. Senior year can’t just end on one last day of classes, so campus ministry has planned a jam packed week for seniors to sit back, relax and reflect on their time at Gonzaga just before graduation.

    We wanted to fill the rest of your time with opportunities for you to be together as a class and celebrate one another hanging out on Eye Street before you leave for college,” said Ms. Danielle Flood, assistant director of campus ministry.

    Seniors are welcome to come to campus for one last time before they graduate, the week before graduation. The week begins on Tuesday, June 1, with lawn and water games, along with family feud, karaoke, prizes and many other activities that seniors will have the opportunity to participate in.

    As the lawn games and activities start to die down, seniors will have the opportunity to come together in one last retreat. The retreat will almost be like a combination of the freshman, sophomore and Kairos retreats at Gonzaga, offering a time of prayer for seniors to look back and think about their time at Gonzaga. This retreat will go into Wednesday and end later in the evening.

    I think the best way to describe this retreat is that it builds on Kairos,” Ms. Flood said.

    Thursday morning will give seniors the chance to reunite with their Kairos groups, clubs and other activities that they’ve been a part of throughout their years at Gonzaga. The day will end early, and seniors will come back for their baccalaureate mass and reception.

    Friday morning is graduation practice, which will end with a senior barbeque. Plenty of faculty will be at Gonzaga throughout the week, giving seniors the chance to interact with faculty and staff along with their classmates. Ending senior week will be one last football game.

    It’s not just any football game, though. It will be a faculty versus students flag football game. Seniors will have the chance to gather in the student section one last time, chanting cheers as the booster club leads them.

    “Basically, we just want to make sure you all have one final week where there’s just seniors on campus. You get to come here every day if you want, and you’ll know that there’s always something going on where you can hang out with each other,” Ms. Flood said.
