COLUMBIA — Thousands of MU students crowded Francis Quadrangle on Friday for the annual Senior Sendoff.
The Senior Sendoff begins with the Tiger Prowl, when students run through the MU Columns away from Jesse Hall to symbolize their exit into the world.
The event wraps up with free drinks, food and games. Students also were asked to place a pin in a map to mark where they were headed after graduation.
Free beer is distributed during the event. MU planned for 3,000 participants and purchased 16 kegs of beer. Budweiser donated six kegs.
