As the school year comes to a close, seniors await the graduation ceremony set to take place on May 31 at 2 p.m.

Instead of being held at Verizon Music Center, where it has been held for the past several years, graduation this year will take place at the Pepsi Coliseum for the second year.

This transition was an accommodation for the increase in number of students graduating with each class, according to Senior Class sponsor John Love.

Senior Liz Hehner said she looks forward to the graduation, but she said it is, in a sense, bittersweet.

“I’ve been so excited for so long, but I’m starting to think of all the people I’ve seen every day for the past four years. I’ll probably never see most of those people again and that’s really sad,” Hehner said.

Hehner said she wishes the actual ceremony was outside, but has no real complaints and her only worry is the length of the actual ceremony.

“It’s going to be long, but I don’t really mind. It’s just crazy to think it’s over. But you just have to think of it as closing one door and opening another,” Hehner said.

The Ceremony

  • Starts at 2 p.m.
