More than 450 Lindsey Wilson College residential students concluded Cinco de Mayo on Tuesday with a late-night meal in Roberta D. Cranmer Dining & Conference Center. Actually, the students took part in the college’s semiannual Midnight Breakfast, but the event happened to fall on Cinco de Mayo.
The decade-old tradition -– which is sponsored by the LWC Residence Life Office -– is usually held on Tuesday of each finals week to allow students to take a break from studying for tests and writing papers. The college’s residence life staff serves the students.
Lindsey Wilson’s 2009 spring commencement -– the 89th commencement ceremony in college history -– will be held at 10 a.m. CT on Saturday in Biggers Sports Center. A total of 161 undergraduate and graduate degrees will be conferred. Combined with the 325 degrees conferred at the winter commencement, the Class of 2009 stands at 486 students –- the largest in the college’s 109-year history.
