The Senior Year Blues

SC Staff Writer

There comes a time in everyone’s college career when they realize that their senior year is just the beginning of the end.

The past three years have been nothing but memory making, building of friendships, and long hours in the library.

Senior year is the time when dollar beers, 35-cent wings, and sweatpants slowly turns into multiple cups of coffee, a business suit, and interviews for the ‘real world’.

As we embark on this journey to the real world together as the class of 2014, it is important to remember where we came from, where we have been, and where we are going.

We all have a story, we all have a past, and we all have dreams to conquer.

Even more important than the past, present, and future, it is who has helped us along the way and who has stood by us through it all, which matters most.

There have been professors that have made the last three years more enjoyable, but, let’s face it, there have been professors that have earned a low rank on

Academic advisors have pushed us to be the best we can be and helped us overcome daunting freshman tasks. And friends have been there at our all time highs and our all time lows.

While many of us are tempted to fill this year with dollar beers and 35-cent wings, it is equally important to get our ducks in a row and prepare for what lies ahead after graduation.

We were once the ‘newbies’, we were once the freshman, but now after three years, we earned the ‘senior’ title.

As the fall semester begins, don’t be sad that is it our last fall semester here at ESU, but take the reins in our own hands and make our senior year unforgettable.

Just always keep in mind that as this year ends, the real world is waiting for us.
