Senior Convocation 2011

A "for seniors, by seniors" event, the Senior Convocation invites seniors on the eve of their last semester at Holy Cross to reflect on the challenges and accomplishments of their first three and a half years of college and to consider how they will use their remaining time at Holy Cross to shape their lives and their life's work. Through a series of talks, personal stories, pictures, music and performances, seniors are challenged to ask themselves, "How can I best use the time I have left at Holy Cross to shape the person I want to become?"

Central to the event are brief talks by two members of the senior class chosen as "Convocation Scholars" by a committee of students, faculty and staff. The seniors selected use the opportunity to reflect on what they’ve gained, who they’ve become, and what they will take from their experiences during their days at Holy Cross.

Following the Convocation, the senior class gathers for a special reception in the Hogan Ballroom, including music and performances.
