In front of a cheering crowd of classmates, parents and guests - the seniors of DePaul Cristo Rey’s Class of 2019 officially “signed” to attend college in a May 1 ceremony. May 1 is national College Signing Day, a date by which most colleges and universities require accepted incoming students to commit to their institutions.
In March, DPCR celebrated that 100 percent of the seniors had been accepted to college and the Signing Ceremony marked their next step – demonstrating they are moving ahead with the enrollment process at their chosen schools.
The seniors plan to enroll at 22 different colleges and universities as close as the University of Cincinnati and as far as Alabama State, Bennett College in North Carolina, and Roosevelt University in Chicago.
Here's a look at our seniors signing.
