The start of senioritis kicking in.

As the end of the school year approaches, senioritis is in full swing. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, senioritis is defined as an ebbing of motivation and effort by school seniors as evidenced by tardiness, absences and lower grades. Excitement for college and life beyond high school may fuel senioritis.

Bailey Morris described senioritis as “the moment a senior realizes that they don’t want to do useless school work anymore.”

Overall, seniors collectively describe senioritis as a lack of caring and a desire to be done with high school.

Ashley Bedillion simply stated “senioritis is real.”

Daniel Knizer said senioritis tends to hit as soon as “you figure out exactly what you want to do after high school.”

However, senioritis may occur earlier for others, such as Nathan Mowery, who responded senioritis “kicked in freshman year.”

He also said he feels the best remedy to senioritis is to simply embrace it.

Angie Miller stated she tries to remember that she “still needs good grades to graduate” to combat her senioritis.

But, some seniors cite that there are, in fact, aspects of high school they will miss.

Morris said he will miss “the guys just being dudes all day everyday.”

Miller responded that she will miss her “friends and having no responsibilities” the most.

On the contrary, there are several aspects of high school seniors are excited to leave behind. Some students are excited to leave behind certain teachers and back-to-back classes.

Many seniors are finding themselves reflecting upon high school and changes that occured in the senior class since freshman year. Several seniors say that they feel the senior class has greatly matured since freshman year.

Morris feels that throughout the four years of high school, students changed from kids to adults.

As Angie Miller said, “We’ve grown as people, developed our character, and gotten close to who we are and what we want to be.”

Seniors’ last day will be May 31, and graduation will be on June 7.
