OHIO celebrates Senior Week 2011

Seniors get week to celebrate and prepare for post-grad life

It is time to graduate the class of 2011, but it is not yet time to say good-bye. The Ohio University Alumni Association is hosting Senior Week from May 22-27, along with other campus offices.

Seniors will have multiple opportunities to get last minute tips for imminent job searches and celebrate their remaining time in Athens.

Senior Week kicks off Sunday afternoon with concerts featuring Shallowtail and Swagg, two cover bands that put unique twists on songs from all generations, hosted by the Ohio University Alumni Association (OUAA) and Nationwide Insurance. The Bobcat 2 Bobcat Panel on Monday at 5 p.m. will offer students the opportunity to connect with distinguished alumni from the Alumni Association Board of Directors to further explore careers. On Tuesday at 5 p.m. staff from Career Services will help quickly revamp student resumes and market their education in hopes to master "The Art of the Last Minute Job Search."

A Grad Fair in Baker Theater Lounge on Wednesday from 2-8 p.m., hosted by the OUAA, will offer more networking opportunities with alumni from around the country and meet representatives from several campus offices. Students will be able to discuss financial topics, moving to new locations, learn about insurance discounts for alumni and browse the Bobcat Store.

Two events are lined up for Thursday. At 6 p.m., "Bobcat vs. Food," hosted by the Student Alumni Board, will be held at Temple Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium's West Portico. This will be the ultimate Athens food challenge with providers DP Dough, O’Betty’s, Big Mama's Burritos and more.

Next at 7 p.m., "’90s Night on the Green," hosted by University Program Council, will feature great music from the ’90s and will show the film "Good Burger" at Scripps Amphitheater. 

Senior Week festivities wrap up on Friday when students are invited to stop by Konnecker Alumni Center (52 University Terrace) all day to get acquainted with the Alumni Association, their future home. "Class of 2011" license plate frames and five moving boxes will be handed out to the first 250 seniors through the door.
