Graduation is approaching in a few short weeks, and the 3L class representatives and the SBA officers having been working hard to make sure this is the best 3L week possible for our class! After a few months of organizing, we have finally solidified our schedule for the 3L week activities and are now working out pricing for the tickets for each event, which we will begin selling in April.
When choosing our itinerary for 3L week, we were trying to organize events based on the feedback we received from our classmates in a survey we sent out last semester. The majority of our classmates suggested activities that involved a lot of interaction with one another, and most expressed interest in events that allowed for socializing, so most of our events will give us all a chance to mingle and have a great time together for what may be the very last time.
3L week will begin with a Lake Michigan beach day on Saturday, May 13th. On the following day, we have reserved buses to transport students from campus to Bell’s Brewery in Kalamazoo, where we will get a tour of the brewery and spend a few hours in their private event room enjoying tacos and Bell’s beer. On Monday, May 15th, we plan to do a class dinner at Morris Inn, where some of our classmates will be awarded with class superlatives based on the votes of their peers. On Tuesday, May 16th, we will spend the day zip-lining at Rum Village Park in South Bend, followed by appetizers in the evening. The following day, Wednesday, May 17th, we will all head to Chicago, where we will have a daytime social on a Chicago rooftop that includes appetizers, a cash bar, a lounge pool, lounge chairs, and plenty of games for us to enjoy. That evening, we will embark on an architecture boat tour on the Chicago River at sunset for two hours. Our final event for 3L week on Thursday, May 18th will be rooftop tickets to the Chicago Cub’s game that will include an unobstructed view of the game, food and drinks for the duration of the event.
We are so excited for 3L week and all the events that we have planned. Graduation will be bittersweet, and leaving Notre Dame will not be easy, so we hope to give our class a send-off they will always remember. Go Irish!
