Don't miss this Paul College tradition as we come together to celebrate your achievements! Join Peter T. Paul as he leads the Senior Toast with his saber and the pop of champagne. Appetizers will be provided.

As a reminder, the event begins with check-in at 2:40 p.m. in the Great Hall. You must have your respective state-issued id, or your passport in order to get a wristband for the champagne toast. For those not 21, or for those who don't drink, we will have glasses of sparkling cider.

For check in, we are instructing those with last names beginning with A-L to enter into the Great Hall via the door near Cornerstone Cafe. For those with last names beginning with M-Z, please enter in the door facing Pettee Brook Lane near the parking lot, and which enters near the break-out rooms.

There isn't a particular dress code, but if you'd like to reference last year's event, you can view our Instagram post from May 18. 2023.

The Senior Toast is intended just for graduating Paul College seniors.
