Congratulations to the class of 2021! We look forward to celebrating you!
Senior Week is a Purchase College tradition designed to celebrate the end of the road on a successful journey to commencement. It’s a week filled with both on and off campus events to celebrate you, the graduate, and create memories that will last beyond Purchase College.
Before Senior Week occurs, we have a variety of Senior Series post-college programs planned throughout the semester for you to engage in various conversations, develop skillsets, and prepare for the future. Additional programs will be added and emailed as they approach. Please remember to view the Commencement website for more information.
