SENIOR DINNER Alumni Spotlight Video
Welcoming Graduating Seniors to the Alumni Family

Seniors with their awardsThe Office of Alumni Relations started a new tradition at last month’s inaugural Senior Dinner. The highly anticipated event was a full house. Around 450 students, faculty and their guests packed the GCU Arena bowl. Students dressed to the nines took full advantage of the photo booth, capturing their last few weeks as GCU college students. The event is the first of its kind at GCU and we hope to make it a yearly tradition to celebrate the seniors’ achievements and welcome them into our alumni family. Read more about the event, as well as students, faculty and staff who were honored at the Senior Dinner.
