Lion Ambassadors To Host Annual Senior Sendoff

While seniors everywhere are dreading their final days of class, Lion Ambassadors is planning its annual Senior Sendoff for members of the Class of 2017 to finish their college careers in style. This year’s Senior Sendoff will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Thursday, April 27 at Hintz Alumni Center.

Seniors will have the opportunity to speak with the Penn State Alumni Association’s various alumni interest groups, which generally support a specific subset of students, like THON volunteers or student leaders.

If the post-grad life is already hitting you hard, you’re in luck, as the event will serve free hoagies, chicken tenders, and mac ‘n’ cheese. For those craving one last dose of collegiate adrenaline, Lion Ambassadors will sponsor an obstacle course, a mechanical bull, and competitions to win graduation baskets and other prizes.

“While most of our other projects have a root in the rich history and traditions of Penn State, Senior Sendoff is a chance for a whole class to come together to remember and celebrate its time here,” Lion Ambassadors President Alan Ludwikowski said in a press release. “This event marks the beginning of the lifelong fondness and dedication that the graduates will have for this university.”
