More than 900 seniors celebrated the last day of classes, and their upcoming graduation, at the annual Senior Dinner on May 2 under a tent on South Lawn. At this much-anticipated event of the graduation season, the students enjoyed a gourmet meal, upbeat music and speeches from Class President Sean Manning Udell ’11, Senior Dinner Co-chairs Alexandra Coromilas ’11 and Noelle Willams ’11 and CCSC President Learned Foote ’11, as well as hearty congratulations from Dean Michele Moody-Adams. A highlight of the evening was the announcement by Senior Fund Chair Scott Maxfield ’11 that the fund had achieved 95 percent participation, a College record. In addition, because the class surpassed its participation goal, Charles Santoro ’82 will contribute $50,000 to the Columbia College Fund. Attendees also celebrated by joining in a rousing rendition of Sans Souci led by Alumni Association Chair Brian Krisberg ’81, ’84L.
