Senior Week

 

The schedule for Senior Week is finally here! Senior Class Council has worked hard to make this a memorable week of events to celebrate the end of our time here at WashU.

This year, we are unveiling an Early Bird pricing at $99 for the whole package (this is a record $50 savings from last year’s ticket price). Get this limited special price while it’s hot!

Registration begins on Monday, February 19, at 4 p.m. — with the link posted at the top of our website.  

On the start of Monday, March 5, regular pricing of the Senior Week package will begin at $110. Individual events after this date will be available for purchase à la carte at non-discounted rates. 

We want all seniors to participate in Senior Week. If the Senior Week registration fee poses a hardship for you, please contact Senior Class Advisor, Josh Gruenke at josh.gruenke@wustl.edu to discuss payment options.

Senior Week contributes to the Class of 2018 Gift is a scholarship fund that is allocated to incoming students of the following year’s first year class.  A commemorative glass designed by members of the Sam Fox Class of 2018 will be given to all of the students who contribute!
