SNHU’s Senior Trip is something seniors look forward to all year. It’s the last chance for the graduating class to come together for one final event.

This year, the seniors went to Walt Disney World in Florida. They left Manchester on March 13 and returned on March 17.

Stephanie Matte (’23) was one of the many seniors that attended the trip. She had a lot of fun traveling to different parks with the Park Hopper Pass and got an upgrade during her time there.

“It was a super easy way to be able to do everything we wanted to do with only being there for three days. We even got upgraded to extra magical rooms at Port Orleans which is a much fancier hotel than we were originally staying in, so it was super nice,” said Matte.

Students were able to plan out their day. They would respond to text messages from their chaperones by a certain time during the day to keep them updated.

“They were always fun questions asking what our favorite thing has been or which Disney character we would be and why,” said Matte.

Nicholas Gaston (’23) attended the trip with his friends, where his expectations were exceeded.

“My favorite part of the trip was being able to enjoy a vacation with my friends and being able to explore Disney as an adult,” said Gaston.

Many other programs had trips planned over spring break, directly conflicting with the senior trip. Matte shared her hopes for the Senior Trip next year.

“Hopefully they are able to move it back to the week between finals and commencement…there isn’t much that happens that week but there were a lot of other trips and programs happening over spring break, so many students had to make a decision about what they wanted to do,” said Matte.

The trip went stress-free and was an experience that both Matte and Gaston enjoyed.

“The organization of faculty made the travel stress free. Hats off to all the faculty for going above and beyond on this trip,” said Gaston.
