CELEBRATIONS FOR THE CLASS OF 2015
The 100 Days Party on Friday, February 6, 2015 is for seniors only. This marks the 100 day countdown to Commencement and an opportunity for seniors to reconnect with their peers (regardless of major) before the intensity of the final senior semester. Seniors celebrate in Fox Commons with a champagne toast, hors d’oeuvres, a photo booth, and more.
The Senior Dinner on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 is for seniors only. It is a time when seniors dress up to have a fun and fancy moment with their peers over dinner and wine. After dinner, the Alumni Association president inducts seniors into the Alumni Association and gives more information about how to keep in touch with Moore and use the Alumni Association. This is also the time when the yearbooks are passed out. It is a great way to end four years of hard work.
The Senior Party on Wednesday, May 13, 2015 is for seniors, faculty, and staff. It is an informal party with beer or wine and hoagies or BBQ. It takes place on campus in Fox Commons and is from 5 pm - 7 pm. It’s a fun way for staff and faculty to spend time with the graduating seniors and congratulate them on their achievements.
The Senior Show Closing Reception on Saturday, May 16, 2015 is the day before Commencement and the afternoon of the Fashion Show. This event is specifically for friends and family to interact with seniors and enjoy the artwork displayed at the Senior Show and some refreshments. It is less formal than the opening reception (which is a professional setting meant for career networking).
The Fashion Show on Saturday, May 16, 2015 and Commencement Ceremony on Sunday, May 17, 2015 are the final events of a week of celebrations. To commemorate Moore’s 160th anniversary, these two events were held on campus in Aviator Park for the first time and it has now become a tradition. The white tent looks great on the green grass among the trees nestled between Moore College, The Franklin Institute, the Barnes, the Free Library, Logan Fountain and The Academy of Natural Science. Both the Fashion Show and Commencement really highlight the many achievements of the wonderful women who are the Class of 2015. See images from the 2014 Fashion Show.
The senior Fashion Show will be held on Saturday, May 16 in the evening.
The 166th Commencement will be held on Sunday, May 17 at 11:00 am in Aviator Park at the corner of Race Street & The Parkway. Both the Fashion Show and Commencement are ticketed events.
