On Monday evening, Christendom hosted the annual Senior-Faculty dinner, which gives members of the senior class a chance to mingle with professors over a delicious three-course meal. The night is marked by good company and conversation and features a lecture by a member of the faculty.
Given the small size of Christendom, students are able to build relationships with their professors throughout their college careers. The annual Senior-Faculty dinner is a special time to enjoy these mentor-mentee relationships. Seniors are seated with faculty from their major’s department, giving students the occasion to spend time with their professors outside the usual context of the classroom or office hours.
“It was such a special evening,” says senior Rowena Owen. “I really enjoyed the time conversing with professors and my fellow classmates.”
This year’s lecture was presented Dr. Chris Lane, Associate Professor of History. The lecture focused on vocational discernment. Lane advised seniors to focus on their vocation as students during their final months at Christendom and to discern God’s plan for their lives one step at a time. The lecture was very pertinent to the senior class as they prepare for graduation in May.
“The lecture was very well received,” says senior Vivian Zadnick. “We all appreciated hearing Dr. Lane’s advice during this transitional time of our lives.”
Thanks to the hard work of the events team, the evening proved to be a beautiful occasion and an evening that the senior class is sure to remember.
