I'd love to get some ideas of your favorite things done for your daughters school on Senior Days, or some that you've seen other schools do.  
Thanks

I've seen schools that have a day for each individual senior.  That seemed a lot more personal and a couple were pretty touching.

I thought all schools had a "day" for each senior. No?

Big West teams had Senior Day (last home game of the season)

Same for Auburn.  I know they get flowers, their families on field with them, and their numbers painted on the outfield grass.  Have never actually been at the game, so I don't know what else.  At some point they all sign the eagle pedestal, but I don't think that happens on Senior Day.

Auburn’s 2015 team signed the eagle when it was mounted above the scoreboard. It’s not a senior tradition.

Auburn has also recognized the opponent’s seniors by reading their softball and academic accomplishments and presenting them with flowers as well (Arkansas in 2015, Texas A&M in 2016, and Mississippi State in 2017).

Wish the senior day thing would just go away.

I totally agree. Let's take away the days that the team, coaching staff, family and fans celebrate the accomplishments the graduating class achieved in their years at their college/university.

Just my perspective gleaned through the years.

"Why didn't Suzie get to start, she's a SENIOR?"

"They didn't say as much about Suzie."

"At Northeastern Southwestern State AF&M, they _______________ (fill in the blank)"

"Can you believe the way the other team disrespected our ceremony?"

Granted, I'm not a pomp and circumstance kinda guy. Add the commentary I've heard over the years, gives rise to my comment.

and at first I was going to interpret your comment as "I don't want to see the Seniors leave"  I sure was wrong about that.

I honestly like the senior day festivities. I think we should all realize at this point that everyone plays a role and we should appreciate all of those roles. Yes I’m sure all of Bills questions/comments will always exist, but the reality is that we should all recognize what each person has contributed whether it be 1,000 strikeouts or a pinch-runner who helped turn all those power hitters singles into doubles and possible runs.

I get that it can be another way to pit players against each other, but that’s only if the team and fans let that atmosphere fester.
