Friday Night Dance Party, Live from the Grand

Friday, May 15, 2020, 10 pm – 1 am

Live from the Grand nightclub in Boston, and MC’d by Dean Elmore, we’re going to dance the night away right from your living room. That’s right – we’re working with the Grand nightclub in Boston and bringing the dancing to you. The Grand will have a live DJ, light show, and dancers all for BU students! We’ll even have virtual club rooms you can meet your friends in so you can dance and be together during the party. Providing your own club lighting and decorations for the camera are highly encouraged! Share your photos using #ZoomedOutTerrier2020 (must have a public profile) or send a photo via text to 475-897-5537 (US-based phones only).

Toast to the Class of 2020

Sunday, May 17, 2020, 1pm

On Sunday, May 17, 2020 at 1pm EST we hope the graduates, family, friends and guests join us as we have an online gathering to Toast the Class of 2020. Robert Pinsky, CAS Professor and former Poet Laureate of the United States, will share poetry, and Moisès Fernández Via from CFA will share music for the class. We will also reflect upon what Boston University means to us, and the inspiration it has and will continue to give us. Join us live at 1pm or watch the archive.

Class of 2020 – Senior Breakfast and Celebration

May 1, 2020

Senior Breakfast is a BU tradition that predates the George Sherman Union, Warren Towers, and Walter Brown Arena. Its exact year of origin is unknown, but we do have photos from 1952 and 1953 Senior Breakfasts that show it dates back at least that far. In those days, the event was held on Marsh Plaza and alumni were invited. (No, we don’t know what they did if it rained.)

As in original versions of this event, each year we celebrate the senior class and the achievements of its members. Also, we announce the news everyone has been waiting for: the Commencement and convocation speakers.

This year’s remote Senior Breakfast took place Friday, May 1, 2020. Watch the replay here.
