Senior Week Events Honor University's Class of 2015

Senior Week at UT Dallas

The Senior Send-Off carnival will feature food, music, rides and a photo booth from 7 to 10 p.m. Monday in parking lot U.

The University of Texas at Dallas will celebrate its spring 2015 graduating seniors with a ring ceremony, carnival and special photo opportunities with the University’s mascot Temoc during Senior Week, Monday through Saturday.

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

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.

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