Morristown, N.J. (February 9, 2018) – CSE traditions for the class of 2018 began during freshman orientation on August 25, 2014. Students participated in the annual freshman festivities of moving in, creating time capsules, and the traditional boat ride.
Four years later, they are coming down to their last few traditions at the College, the most recent being 100s Night. This tradition honors the upcoming seniors for their 100 days until graduation.
The night began as all the seniors gathered with class advisor, Nicole Yanoso, at the Commuter Lounge in Saint Joseph Hall. Once everyone arrived, they walked to the Holy Family Chapel to ring the bell, announcing the beginning of the ceremony. After, the group met back at Saint Joseph Hall to enjoy dinner in Rose Dining Room.
Dessert was served at Annunciation Center, where the seniors filmed goodbye videos. As they took turns recording their farewells, they also spent time mingling and reminiscing about their college years. Before heading to O'Connor Hall, campus minister, Clare Ettensohn, gathered the group for a prayer. Through a candlelight procession, everyone headed to O'Connor Hall Parlor to enjoy a slide show and open the time capsules they put together as freshman. Inside, the capsules contained written letters, mementos, and a letter from their group leaders.
Lastly, everyone joined in on the celebration in McGuire Lounge with music and dancing. This year, special guest DJ Drewski from Hot 97 helped the seniors celebrate their special night.
Senior Christine Grispart said, "The endless traditions at CSE are what make our college so special. It's events like 100s Night that will last a lifetime."
