5 Things to Do During Your Senior Year

It can be a little bit emotional when your senior year starts coming to a close. Once you start being measured for caps and gowns, you’ll realize you will soon be leaving high school and heading off into the big wide world, and maybe even heading off to college.

As a result, you might be unable to suppress a feeling of nostalgia about your many years of high school. To ensure you look back with no regrets, here are five things to do during your senior year to make life-long memories.

1. Keep Applying for Scholarships

No-one can deny that college can be expensive. If you want to minimize yours or your parents’ financial stress, you should keep applying for scholarships. There are many colleges who will happily pay for talented students to enjoy education at their institution, and you could be one of them. If your grades are good and your attitude is right, you could be the perfect candidate to receive a scholarship.

2. Socialize with Your Friends

Once your high school days are behind you, it’s possible you and some friends might go your separate ways, or you might be too busy with studying in different cities to make time for one another.

For this reason, you must aim to socialize more in your senior year. It doesn’t matter if you want to go out or stay in watching Netflix together, just make the most of the time you have left with your friends. It could also help to strengthen your bond before you do go off to college, so you’ll remain lifelong friends.

3. Spend More Time with Your Family

As much as they might annoy you, you can guarantee you’ll miss nothing more than your family if you move out next year! Don’t look back on your senior year with regrets and aim to spend more time with your family before you go off to college. You can guarantee you’ll wish you’d said yes to a family dinner or movies with your mom when you’re hundreds of miles away.

4. Celebrate Your Senior Year

Your senior year is a big deal. It is marking an end of a big chapter in your life, and it should be celebrated. You’ll have worked hard for many years to graduate from high school, so make sure to celebrate the occasion. For example, senior portraits are a great way to capture who you are and where you’re going at this moment in time.

5. Visit as Many College Campuses as Possible

Don’t settle for the first campus you visit. While it might have appeared great during a visit, there could be a better option out there for you. Use your spare time to visit as many college campuses as possible to make an informed choice. If you don’t, you might regret your decision down the road when you hear about some of the amazing colleges your high school classmates are attending. The more campuses you visit, the more confident you will be in your final choice.
