Music and laughter is what you will hear if you drive by Fort Hays State University's Gross Memorial Coliseum on Friday, May 12. But don’t expect to see any sporting events. FHSU's Student Alumni Association, the FHSU Alumni Association and Nelnet will be sponsoring the Senior Send-off.
The event is aimed at giving graduating seniors a chance to celebrate their accomplishments as FHSU students. The send-off will take place from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. after commencement practice, giving seniors a chance to learn more about the Alumni Association and Nelnet's student loan consolidation program.
Seniors who registered prior to the event will receive a free T-shirt, while all who attend will be able to participate in games ranging from washer-toss to volleyball. Music will be provided by Dennis Hahn's DJ service.
A wide variety of prizes will be awarded, ranging from a digital camera to diploma frames to shirts.
