Additional Senior Programs
 

senior week

Senior Week is filled with celebratory events for seniors and will begin on Monday, May 17, 2021 and culminates on Sunday with the Commencement Ceremonies. While no final decision has been made about Senior Week 2021, we currently plan to offer a variety of intimately sized in-person events and larger-scale virtual and hybrid programs. All events for 2021 will be offered free of charge. 

Please note, TUSC's student-run Senior Week is planned independently of University Commencement programming. University decisions about the format of Commencement exercises does not necessarily dictate Senior Week programming. All decisions will be made based on University, state and local guidelines regarding COVID-19.

All Senior Week tickets are available online at tuftstickets.com beginning Monday, May 3, 2021 at 10:30am and are required even for free events. All tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable.

 

All Senior Week ticket holders agree to the Senior Week Social Policy.
