Student life among the seniors has a new aspect to it, a new weekly tradition for Monday nights.

“At first it was just to get out of the dorms, but then, it turned into something built upon brotherhood,” Trevin Detwiler ‘19 said.

Every Monday night, the senior class gathers in the parking lot with speakers, food, and anything else they need to have a good time. They call it a “Monday night party.”

“Senior Monday started after a hand full of guys and I just wanted to go outside and have fun, and others joined in. We all go out at 9:45 pm to wherever we are holding it. We have music, games, food, and lots of good times,” Devin Luque ‘19 said.

Luque is the main driving force behind the senior night tradition, a tradition Skylar Davis ‘19 described as a “block party for the seniors.”

“It’s very enjoyable, and it forces us to get outside the building, It brings us a lot closer together even though we are already seniors,” Andrew Wilson ‘19 said.

Participation is often wide and varied, from sharing the spoils of the Fall Festival cake tent, to bringing homemade salsa, as is the case with Levi Kicken ‘19 and Davis.

“One week Skylar and I brought out our salsa, and it was a big hit. Even Mr. Townsend enjoyed it,” Kicken said.

The salsa in question was made using ghost chilis grown by Davis in his garden.

Luque expressed hopes that it would continue on for the rest of the year.

“I hope we can continue it as long as we can, and I hope future classes will carry this tradition on,” Luque said.

Senior Mondays are a little different every time, different food, different games, and different locations.

“Although I can’t divulge any future plans for senior Mondays, I will say that we have some great plans in the works,” Luque said.
