Celebrations for the Class of 2016

CELEBRATIONS FOR THE CLASS OF 2016

The 100 Days Party on Friday, February 5, 2016 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.

Senior Soiree on Tuesday, May 10, 2016 is for seniors only. It is a time when seniors dress up to have a fun and fancy moment with their peers over heavy hors d’oeuvres 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 11, 2016 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 14, 2016 from 1pm-3pm 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 14, 2016 is one of the final events of a week of celebrations. The senior Fashion Show will be held on Saturday, May 14 in the evening. The Fashion Show will be held at The Barnes Foundation this year. The Fashion Show really highlights the many achievements of the wonderful women who are the Class of 2015.* For more information on the Fashion Show, please visit: http://moore.edu/calendar/century-21-department-store-presents-fashion-show-2016

Commencement Ceremony on Sunday, May 15, 2016 is the final event of a week of celebrations. The 167th Commencement will be held on Sunday, May 15 at 11:00 am in Aviator Park at the corner of Race Street & The Parkway. 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. Commencement really highlights the many achievements of the wonderful women who are the Class of 2016.
