University to Celebrate Seniors with Week's Worth of Events

Temoc Tuesday at UT Dallas

Before receiving his master's degree in supply chain management, Hao Yuan attended last year's Temoc Tuesday. The first 100 people will receive an alumni T-shirt.

The University of Texas at Dallas will celebrate its spring 2014 graduating seniors with a ring ceremony, carnival and special photo opportunities with the University’s mascot Temoc during Senior Week, May 12-17.

The annual weeklong celebration is part of the Senior Year Experience program, which provides resources and support for students in their final year at UT Dallas as they prepare to make the transition to a career or graduate school.

A highlight of the week is the Senior Send-Off carnival, with food, music and a photo booth.

Senior Week sponsors include the Office of Student Transition Programs, the Office of Development and Alumni Relations and the Office of Student Engagement.
