Graduating seniors are invited to join their fellow Tommies of the Class of 2018 for the Senior March Through the Arches tradition. The St. Thomas community, parents, family, and friends are welcome to attend this event and applaud our graduating seniors as they transition from students to alumni.  

Participants are asked to gather in the lower quad, near the John Ireland statue, for a farewell address from Dr. Julie Sullivan, President of the University of St. Thomas, representatives from the senior class and alumni association. 

A reception will follow on the John P. Monahan Plaza following the March Through the Arches Celebration with the opportunity to take pictures with your classmates and our mascot, Tommie.

The event will be held rain or shine.  If it is raining, ponchos will be available for students and the reception will be held in the James B. Woulfe Alumni Hall in the Anderson Student Center.

Please note that this will primarily be a standing event for participants and guests. Accommodations for accessibility may be requested through Kimberly Schumann at (651) 962-6308.
