Senior year is one of our most formative years of high school. For many students, it is their final year before they are on their own. This can both be scary and extremely exciting. High school, whether you love it or hate it, truly forms who you are once you graduate. The four years you spend in these hallowed halls really shape who you are once you leave. For some, school becomes a haven in which your social life thrives. For others, it becomes an inescapable hell-hole.

“Every year was distinctively different for me in a massive way. Some major life changes happened each year. I would definitely say senior year has been by far the most interesting. It has been really reflective for me since I’ve been looking back on my previous years here,” says senior David Allison

Senior Dylan Root says, “I cannot wait to graduate, however the future is always scary so it’s a double sided coin.”

For most students, once high school nears its end, the search for the perfect college begins. A multitude of factors can go into this. Whether that be money, location, or majors, finding the perfect college can be extremely stressful.

“I’ve been accepted into a foreign exchange program through the high school and IU, so I’ll be spending half of my summer with a host family in Graz,” says senior Delaney Sizemore.

For many students, high school can be all about taking risks, which can be both a good and bad thing. Pushing your own boundaries can lead to life changing experiences.  

“I regret not taking more risks in high school and not pushing myself a little farther outside my comfort zone. I regret not joining HTC my freshman year, since I’d have to say it’s my favorite experience from high school,” says senior Jess Klacik

As another school year comes to an end, tears will be shed as the class of 2018 says their goodbyes, but excitement grows as we wonder what is next in store for their future.
