10 Senior Year Moments We Remember All Too Well

From your last "first day" of school ’til the time you had that diploma in your hands, senior year certainly gave you some unforgettable memories that you still reminisce about today.

1. Having to reply to everyone who asks, "So, where are you going to college?"


What you say: "Don't know! Haven't heard back yet!" 😄

What you really want to say: "No. I do not yet know where I'll be attending college next fall. Does anyone know where they're going yet? It's still September, right? Did I miss something? But thank you for adding to my stress. Not like I didn't need another reminder of one of the biggest determining factors of my future." 😰

2. Posing for your senior portraits.

"Look above my shoulder like you're staring at your future. Now hold your cap and tassel in this weird position. I know that no one would ever hold it like this, but it looks good in pics."

3. Fighting senioritis.

"There was never a scene with people dancing in a circle. When is the choreographed dance supposed to start?"

8. That awkward moment when you don’t recognize the person who asks you to sign their yearbook.

You also have a bunch of notes from strangers you felt obligated to ask since they were standing next to the person you wanted to sign your yearbook. You know, the type who just wrote “KIT” or “Have a great summer” (even though since you don’t know them, you’re not sure where you’d run into them again)?

9. Leaving the school after you take your final exam.

10. Every single moment with your cap 'n' gown.

But seriously, does the tassel go on the left or right side?

What comes next is even better. Make Temple University your next stop and make your future unstoppable!
