Things I Wish I Knew Before Senior Year About Senior Year

Hayley Royal, Senior

  1. Take ACT tutoring BEFORE you’re a senior.

  2. Don’t pretend like having school spirit is lame-just enjoy it. It’s more fun and you’ll regret not having any later.

  3. Appreciate your teachers because you’ll end up missing some of them.

  4. Make your schedule a mix of challenging and less challenging classes. This way you’re not bored, but you’re also not always stressed.

  5. Apply to colleges with early action if you can. This gives you more time to make a decision and more time to apply for scholarships.

  6. Ask teachers for recommendation letters as soon as you know you need them. This makes it less stressful for you and them.

  7. It’s going to be over faster than you think, so make the most of it!
