coffeebreakSenior Dinner
Our tradition at Averett is to have a special sit down dinner for our traditional graduating seniors. This year's "Countdown to Graduation" dinner will be Thursday, Feb. 13 at 6 p.m. in the multipurpose room of the Student Center.

There are two ways that you can help. First, please consider serving during the meal - this is a great way to show someone you are proud of them. Second, donate a fabulous prize to be given away. Our goal is that all of the seniors leave with a gift.

If you are interested in serving, or you have a gift to donate, please contact Dan Hayes at dhayes@averett.edu.

Please mark your calendars for the Thursday, Jan. 23 Coffee & Cookie at 11 a.m. followed at 11:15 by the University staff meeting. Both will be held in the multipurpose room.
