Senior Week 2013
- DateMay 11 - 17
Seniors, you’ve given us some of the best years of your life and we’re sending you off in style! We’ve shut down spots at Harpoon, Six Flags, Foxwoods, and Fenway, and made them available exclusively for BU Seniors. We’ve even commandeered a boat for your partying pleasure. And, we’ll be bookending it all with a barbeque and bash featuring great food, music, and seniors just like you. It’s your Senior Week, so grab your friends and get ready to celebrate at this fantastic lineup of events…
Note: Tickets to each event are purchased individually. However, if you were to buy a ticket to every event, your total cost would be $197 (if you choose to attend the Cruise) or $187 (if you choose to attend the Harpoon event.) Exact prices for each event are available on the ticket buying page. All events are for BU seniors only, with the exception of the 808 Bash, where seniors can bring a guest.
Saturday, May 11, 7-11pm on the BU Beach
Imagine 2,000 seniors on the BU Beach for a BBQ featuring live music, backyard games, and craft beers. Not to mention all of the kabobs, sausages, and ice cream sandwiches you can eat. Well, that’s how we’re kicking off Senior Week 2013. Don’t worry, there’ll be plenty of time to get fancy at Foxwoods and the Senior Bash. But this barbeque comes right on the heels of finals, so it’s your chance to finally relax, grab a cold one, and celebrate in your own backyard. Everyone who attends will get a commemorative Senior Week koozie that you can use all week and for years to come. Admission for this “calling all seniors” event is just 20 bucks, with the food on us, and drinks (straight from the keg) on you. Dress: Backyard Casual.
Sunday, May 12, 4:30pm-12:30am at Foxwoods Resort Casino
Dine at an award-winning restaurant, try your luck at the largest casino in the northeast, and dance the night away at one of the hottest clubs in the country. That’s the Foxwoods Senior Week experience, and it promises to be a night to remember. Your $25 ticket includes round-trip transportation, admission to Shrine Nightclub, and even a game of bowling. You must be 21+ to enter the gaming floor and Shrine Nightclub Dress: Grown and Sexy.
Monday, May 13, 6:45-11pm at the Boston Harbor
