Senior Week Activities

The week leading up to graduation is often referred to as Senior Week. Each year a variety of social activities occur during this Monday-to-Friday time period. It is an opportunity for classmates to reconnect during the week leading up to commencement. The activities planned are completely up to members of the class to decide upon. Historically, the events have been organized by the graduating classes' former MDSG officers and/or the fourth year student representatives to the Commencement Committee. In the past, social activities have included local winery tours, picnics and softball games, karaoke nights, golf tournaments, Rock Cats games, beach trips, happy hours, gatherings, games and barbeques at local parks.

The Commencement Dinner Dance is typically held on the Friday evening prior to graduation. It is normally held at the Farmington Club, Town Farm Road, Farmington, Connecticut, at 6 p.m. Each graduating medical and dental student is given the opportunity to attend the dinner with one guest free of charge. Additional guests may be invited for a charge to the student. The approximate cost is $70.00 per additional guest. All students and guests receive two beverage tickets and dinner. Music is provided by a DJ.

The Schools of Medicine and Dental Medicine hold separate awards brunches at off-site locations prior to graduation. Specific information regarding the locations of the awards ceremonies can be obtained from the individual schools.
