Convos Senior Celebration – CVN

By Kristen Day – Marketing Intern

Spring 2020 has certainly not gone as planned at Purdue Convocations, especially for our graduating seniors. Since we work with amazing students every day, we wanted to celebrate their accomplishments even though they won’t get to walk across the stage in Elliott Hall of Music. To finish out our celebration, we’d like to recognize our Convocations Volunteer Network (CVN) seniors.
