Looking Forward to Senior Year


By now you made it to your last few weeks of your Junior year. You probably have a lot of excitement to finally be a Senior. As you are heading into your senior year, I am going to give you some advice. This summer you will probably have an abundant amount of free time between sports and work. Job shadowing would be a great way to spend some of your extra time this summer. You should especially start job shadowing this summer if you don’t know what you want to do after high school. Even if you think you know what you want to do, a job shadow can give you a better look into what that job will really be like.

This summer would also be a great time to go on college visits. During the school year, you won’t have a lot of time to take off school for college visits. You will also have to start applying for colleges in the fall, so if you visit them in the summer you will know which ones you are really interested. Applying for colleges can be very expensive for $25- $50 for each application so may want to only apply for the colleges you are really interested. You will also need to take the ACT if you are planning to go to college because you will need ACT scores to apply for college. You might want to start taking the ACT now because the more times you take the test, the higher chance will have a better score on the next time you take it. Meikayla, a senior pictured above, says not to procrastinate and to get things done early.

Most of all, you should look enjoy your senior year. You should try and talk to people you normally would not. You should also hang out with your friends more often because this is the last time you will be all together. Get involved whether that’s joining a club or going to the boys’ basketball game. Remember, this is your last year so make the most of it. Time really will fly, and you will be graduating before you know it.
