The Senior Board is a University-Affiliated Organization that exists to celebrate the Xavier senior experience by providing activities that reflect the culmination of a developmental experience as an undergraduate student.

Senior Week

Senior Week is May 12 - 17, 2014           #XUSeniorWeek

The Senior Week program offers the Xavier graduating class a unique experience by providing a week-long series of events from the close of Final Exams leading up to Commencement.  Seniors are able to purchase Senior Week packages to participate in all of the events and activities throughout the week.  Packages are available for purchase online beginning in February. 

Senior Week Packages
On Sale February 1 - April 1

Early Bird Packages Feb 1 - Feb 28 (5pm) $160 per package
Full Price Packages March 1 - April 1 (5pm) $175 per package

All Senior Week Package sales end at 5pm (EDT) on Tuesday, April 1 in order to provide enough time to coordinate logistics and finalize counts and ticketing for all of the events. 

Physical packages (including a final schedule of events as well as ticketing for activities) will be available for pick-up during the week of April 28.  At the time of picking up their package, Seniors will need to finalize any additional ticket purchases and also select options related to some of the events (ie. time of brunch).

There are no tickets sold for individual events; students must purchase a package to attend.

One (1) additional Senior Ball ticket may be purchased online with package or in person at package pick-up.  Price = $25.00
