Senior Convocation, one of our many annual traditions, is a final chance for the senior class to come together and kick off their last few months Susquehanna.
The tradition began in 2000, when seniors wanted to do something special for the new millennium.
The Class of 2018 gathered this year on Sept. 14, 2017, to reminisce about the past four years. A slide show of memories was displayed on the televisions in the dining hall.
Austin French '18, the Student Government Association's treasurer, spoke about becoming a Susquehanna champion and what that means to the soon to be graduates.
"To be a Susquehanna champion you must participate in the five Susquehanna traditions—advocacy, success, giving, service and spirit. Once you achieve these you will become a true Susquehanna champion. You choose your legacy you leave behind here. Make it a good one," he said.
President Jonathan D. Green and his wife, Ms. Lynn Buck, gave the champagne toast and wished the Class of 2018 the best of luck in their endeavors.
"I am honored to become your president in your last year here. You all have made Lynn and I feel so very welcome and I wish you nothing but the best of luck in the future," said Green.
After the toast, students spent the night enjoying delicious desserts, catching up with friends and remembering the good times they've had at Susquehanna.
