Senior Year Must Dos

Sandra Medina, Writer

May might seem like months away, but graduation is closer than it seems.Your last days of high school are coming up quick, you might look back and remember all the friends who have come and gone, or the freshmen relationships you might regret. You might even already have plans for the rest of the year like your outfit for Senior Prom or some ideas for Senior Pranks. But in the meantime, here are some fun activities that are a must do before you graduate high school:

  • Hang out with some of your friends
    • Don’t get too caught up in college applications and scholarships and career planning, make sure you save some time to have fun as well! You can never go wrong with a bonfire, especially now that fall weather is coming around. Planning a fun activity with your close pals help make lasting memories with the people you soon won’t be seeing everyday.
  • Go on a trip
    • You can do this alone, with friends, or even family. Go somewhere you’ve never gone before or even someplace you love visiting. This could be the perfect time to do some last minute college visits as well!
  • Participate in school events
    • It’s your last year of high school and also your last chance to show your school spirit and support your peers. This is a fun way to get some friends together, make new friends, and even find something new you enjoy!
  • Spend more time with family
    • It doesn’t matter if your post high school plans take you out of state, across the state, or right down the street, you won’t have as much time to spend with your family as you do now. Make sure your loved ones know how much you appreciate them and the help they’ve given you during your high school career and beyond.
  • Go to senior events
    • Prom is the biggest dance of the year and arguably one of the most fun filled nights of high school. Other fun all class activities like the Senior Picnic and Senior All Night Party are definitely more fun than they look and one of your last chances to hang out with all of your friends at once. Go all-out and enjoy it while you can.
  • Clean up your social media
    • Jobs and scholarships will most likely end up looking at your social media before selecting you for great opportunities. A good rule of thumb is making sure there’s nothing you wouldn’t want your grandma to see on your accounts.
