The Wellesley College Alumnae Association (WCAA) hosts Senior Lunch each year. This celebratory event serves as the official induction of seniors into the WCAA, as well as the first official class meeting.

The event honors previous class officers and includes the presentation of the senior class' financial gift to the president. On a lighter note, President Bottomly also presents a certificate to the class' winner of Hoop Rolling, while she signs a commemorative hoop, which has been signed by previous winners.

In addition to remarks by the class dean, this year's faculty speaker, chosen by the seniors, was Ann Velenchik, director of the Writing Program and associate professor of economics.

Led by the class songmistress, the event concludes with the singing of To Alma Mater.
