2022 Senior Week Schedule

Senior Week includes a variety of events for the graduating class planned by their Class Council, a committee made up of seniors, and student volunteers with the support of the Collis Center for Student Involvement.

View the Senior Week Program full of events hosted and coordinated by the Senior Week Committee. 

Senior Week brings together graduating undergraduate students to celebrate as a class and to culminate their Dartmouth experience. Since Senior Week is funded by class funds and the student activities fee, these events are intended for graduating students. As a result, attendance at most Senior Week events is limited to graduating students. Any exceptions to this are noted in the event details below.*
