Senior Week was a success! Every year we dedicate the last week of classes to our lovely seniors. The week started off Sunday night with a limo ride to P.F. Chang’s in Pasadena. The girls chowed down on yummy Chinese food while looking back at their memories together!
Monday night the seniors all got to say their goodbyes to the whole chapter and impart their words of wisdom. It is such a bittersweet time!
Tuesday night is a favorite tradition of ours. We all gather in the foyer as the seniors “will” down their old T-shirts, costumes and their favorite ADPi stories. I know I already have a few things in mind to will when I’m a senior (my Rafiki costume from our Disney exchange)!
Wednesday night, the last night, was probably the most exciting though. The night started off with a slideshow of the seniors that their parents helped me put together. We saw them from their baby years to their ADPi days. So cute! Then, the girls were surprised with costumes from their secret sisters who had been leaving them clues all week. The seniors dressed up in their costumes and ran to the Finger Fountain where they found their secret sis’s wearing the same costume as them! The seniors and their sis’s went on a wild fountain run all over campus. It was such a fun night that none of us will ever forget!
I cannot believe that the seniors have graduated. We will miss them all so much because each of them is such an important part of our chapter. Note to the seniors: please visit often! We expect to see you at Alumnae Tea!

Diamond Ball! I can't think of a better way to end the school year than by celebrating it with all of our sisters and our dates at a fabulous renovated 1920s bank in Long Beach! We had so much fun dancing with our hot dates that we completely forgot that it was our last social event of the year--but no worries, Fall '10 is just around the corner and I'm thrilled to start the planning of social events for the Fall and our new pledge class!
The beginning of the night started with all of our sisters and our dates coming together in our foyer to hang out with each other until we started loading the charter buses. I couldn't wait to see the reaction on our girls' faces as we arrived to The Madison in Long Beach. We walked inside and were greeted with a gorgeous 1920s environment complete with the basement as our dance floor, which was directly next to the actual vault created in the 1920s!
It was a perfect venue to capture the sentiments of Diamond Ball. Not only were we celebrating the end of the school year but we were also congratulating our graduating seniors as it was there last social event with their sisters all together. Although it is a sad thought to think of them leaving us, we didn't let that get us down as we partied the night away.
I can't wait for the Fall semester with Semi-formal and our Winter invite--see y'all there!
