Grad Bash

Hosted by BYU Alumni, Grad Bash was held on Friday, April 14. Crowds of excited graduates came by the Hinckley Center to celebrate and to make the evening a great success.

We’d like to thank everyone who came up to the third floor to visit our BYU Marriott booth. Attending BYU Marriott students received a limited-edition gift* and played the duck pond for more cool BYU Marriott graduate swag. We hope everyone also enjoyed the food, fun, and fireworks at the Marriott Center.
