Senior Week

Senior Week (June 4 - June 8) is a time for you to reflect on your time at the University of Chicago, relax, and have fun with your friends. We have put together a variety of activities both on and off campus. Please note that transportation is provided to ticketed events off-campus and is included in the cost of the ticket. All members of the Class of 2017 will be eligible to purchase Senior Week tickets.
