What is Senior Breakfast?

The Senior Breakfast is BU tradition that predates the George Sherman Union, Warren Towers and Walter Brown Arena. The exact year is not known, but we do have photos from the 1952 and 1953 Senior Breakfasts to show that it at least goes back that long. Back 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.)

Just like the original versions of the event, the senior class is celebrated. Also, we announced the news everyone has been waiting for: this year’s Commencement speakers, Honorary Degree Recipients, and the 2022 Senior Week events!


Boston University,
Proud with mission sure;
Keeping the light of knowledge high, long to endure;
Treasuring the best of all that’s old, searching out the new;
Our Alma Mater evermore! Hail B.U.
