MBA's Project Graduation (PG17 or PG) was started 28 years ago by a group of concerned parents who wanted to offer a safe, alcohol and drug free environment for students to celebrate graduation. The catalyst for this event was a tragic accident involving an MBA senior. This event is sanctioned by the national organization, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). An added benefit to an organized event, like PG, is that it is an inclusive way for ALL students to spend one last night together. It has been very successful in eliminating smaller, exclusive, private parties that do not include all students.
Project Graduation is an MBA tradition and most years 100% of the class participates. On Thursday, June 1st, the boys will meet back at MBA after graduation at 10:30 p.m. It is here where they will check in. Attention Moms! We are bringing back the Mother Son Dance! It is a 20 year tradition that built community and made memories of a lifetime for our boys. Far be it for us to deprive our sons. Currently, we are planning to hold the mother son dance on campus, in the Currey Gymnasium. Following the dance, the boys will depart on buses to Boost Fit Club. Each participant must download and sign a liability waiver here
The night includes games, music, prizes, favors and food! The boys will remain at Boost Fit Club until 4:00 a.m. They will return to MBA the next morning for a sunrise breakfast on “The Hill.” Their final meal together as the class of 2017. The festivities will conclude at 5:00 a.m.
