The fifth annual Senior Picnic was held on Saturday, May 5, at the Bedford County farm of Chancellor Jerry Falwell, Jr. and his wife, Becki.
More than 1,000 seniors attended the four-hour event, which was aptly called the “Señior Picnic” and featured a Cinco de Mayo theme. Students were treated to free Mexican food, free T-shirts, horseback riding, canoeing, kayaking and swimming, games and prizes, and new this year: a giant inflatable slide and a Ferris wheel.
“Each year it keeps getting bigger and better,” said Chris Misiano, Director of Campus Recreation. “The Student Activities team looks forward to the event every year. It provides a great opportunity for seniors to connect around one last big, fun event prior to graduation. For Student Activities, this is our one last opportunity to see these students connect with our mission and deepen relationships around this shared experience.”
