WEB EXCLUSIVE Seniors met in the Mary Mardel Chapel during assembly today to learn about a variety of senior activities and events that will take place later in the semester.

“The fact that we are graduating in a few months has become much more real,” senior Caroline Schulberg said. “There is a lot to look forward to down the line.”

Head of School Rachel Simpson and Co-Chair of Community Life Paul Pryor Lorentz led a discussion surrounding annual traditions such as Senior Tea, the Baccalaureate Mass, and the Alumnae Luncheon.

“I am excited for Senior Week because we have watched so many classes before us process down the stairs in their white dresses at Commencement and now it is our turn to share the experience,” senior Molly Brown said. “The traditions connect us to all Convent graduates, in the past and future.”

This is the first year that both Convent & Stuart Hall senior classes will attend a coed Baccalaureate Mass at St. Vincent de Paul Church.

“I am happy that the Mass will be with the boys this year,” senior Amelia Estes said. “All the other Senior Week activities are single-sex, so it is nice to have an event with them because they are just as much our classmates as all of us girls are.”

Students will receive more details about Senior Week later in the spring.

“I am going to savor these last few months,” Schulberg said. “We still have a ways to go.”
