Lion Ambassadors To Host Senior Sendoff

As much as seniors hate to admit it, graduation is quickly approaching. If you’re dreading your last few days as a Penn State student, Lion Ambassadors is hosting an event to celebrate your accomplishments and hopefully leave you in a brighter mood.

The Lion Ambassadors will host the annual university-wide senior sendoff on Thursday at the Hintz Alumni Center from noon until 4 p.m. This year’s celebration is American-themed and even if you’re not graduating this semester you can attend to say goodbye to the Class of 2016.

The event will include picnic foods like hotdogs and hamburgers. There will also be inflatables, lawn games, and puppies from Centre County P.A.W.S.

“U-Wide is such a unique event because it celebrates the students who have made an enormous impact on Penn State and are ready to leave their legacies behind,” project leader Megan Saich said. “It’s a really great way to say thank you and goodbye to each class every year.”

Mike the Mailman and Sue Paterno will make guest appearances af the sendoff, in addition to a performance by local favorite band My Hero Zero.

“Lion Ambassadors is an organization that works closely with the Penn State Alumni Association,” Executive Vice President Katy Leslie said. “Having the opportunity to hold an event to welcome those students into the [alumni] family is really special for us.”
