UH Senior Sendoff says goodbye to class of 2012
UH’s Lynn Eusan Park was filled with games, raffles and music as the Alumni Association threw a going away party for seniors Wednesday.
Sammy Butts, an architecture senior, said he enjoyed Senior Sendoff.
“This is a pretty good amount of people,” Butts said. “I wish there were a little bit more out there, but this is a pretty good turnout. It’s nice for the students to come out and enjoy it and participate and to see that there’s ways to stay connected even after they graduate.”
Cameron Bailey, president of the Student Alumni Connection, said the event serves as a final goodbye to outgoing seniors.
“Pretty much the goal is to have one last party to say goodbye to all the seniors and congratulate them,” said Bailey, a senior marketing major. “We just want to give back to the seniors that are graduating.”
Not as many attended as expected, but Bailey said he sees the event becoming more popular in the future.
“I think some of the seniors like it,” he said. “I really feel like not that many seniors know about the event yet, but I think as we continue to have it, it’ll become more of a tradition, and hopefully people realize what we’re doing this for.”
