Surviving Your Senior Year Of College From A To Z

The craziest year of your life in 26 letters.

Posted on

A is for "All-Nighter"

Get your coffee with an extra shot of espresso, because it's not like you would ever actually start that research project before the day it is due.


C is for "Classes"

Otherwise known as the time in your day when you aren't drinking. But seriously, enjoy them. After this, learning new things won't be so easy.

D is for "Dive Bar"

20th Century Fox / Via

Like the great watering holes of Africa where wild animals gather to drink, seniors flock to their chosen dive bar. A sad but true fact: After this year, you're never going to know so many people at any one drinking establishment.

E is for "Essays and Exams"

NBC Universal / Via

Yes, every single word you seem to write during a paper tears away a little bit of your soul. Yes, exams wreak havoc on campus twice a year like an academic version of the Bubonic Plague. But rejoice, because this is probably the last time you will ever have to put yourself through the torture of either ever again.

F is for "Free Stuff"

Universal Pictures / Via

SWAG. College ain't cheap, so you may as well go all-out when it comes to getting bang for your buck. Student performances, concerts, and even counseling sessions are usually free or greatly discounted. Take advantage of it while you still can.

G is for "Graduation"

FOX / Via

Doomsday. Armageddon. The End of the World As You Know It. Just kidding. You're handed a $200,000 piece of paper and shoved out into the real world. Keep drinking!


I is for "Independence"

Katy Perry Vevo / Via

Yes, you'll be independent after graduation, but in a sort of "live on your own and have to pay bills" sort of way. Senior year is the fun type of independent where you can stay out all night and go to class the next day hungover with minimal consequences.


M is for "Major"

Warner Bros. Pictures / Via

Senior year is where you get to reap the benefits of your major. Instead of suffering through an entry-level biology class with 400 other freshmen, you finally get to take the baller upper level classes.

O is for "Opportunities"

NBC Universal / Via

From talking to professors who are experts in their respective fields to extracurricular activities, there will never be so many available to you.

Q is for "Questions"

Lucasfilm / Via

"Should I be drinking on a Monday?" and "What is the lowest possible GPA I can carry to graduate?" and "What the hell am I going to do with my life?" are just a few of the troubling questions you will ask yourself senior year.


W is for "Washed Up"

MTV / Via

The constant drinking, partying, hooking up, and trying to get through the year is going to take a toll on your body. Yeah, you're going to feel a little rough around the edges. But it's a good look for you!

X is for "XOXO"

MTV / Via

As in "bumping uglies," "the birds and the bees," "doing the nasty." You've got one more year of being surrounded by young, attractive, educated people. Let your freak flag fly!
