As the summer winds down, I can’t help but reflect on the fact that I will be entering my final year of college. Just as many freshman entering college for the first time set goals for getting involved, trying new things and making an impact, it is crucial for seniors to have a similar mentality. Even though time in college may be nearing its end for seniors, it is now that motivation should be at its highest! Here is a basic checklist for seniors to follow entering their final year as an undergraduate.
1. It’s Never Too Late:
I’ve seen countless friends and peers become hesitant of joining new clubs and organizations in school simply because they will be upperclassmen and feel it is too late. It is never too late to join something new! A full school year is plenty of time to make an impact!
2. Don’t Lose Motivation:
By now, most seniors have only a handful of classes left to take. It is easy to fall into the trap of going on “cruise control” for the final two semesters of school. Strive to do better than ever before and you will be better prepared after graduating to take the leap into the professional world!
As a senior you have lots of offer. You’ve had a great deal of experiences socially, scholastically and emotionally during your first few years of college. Use that experience and wisdom to help underclassmen by taking on leadership positions or by simply being willing to lend a helping hand to younger students.
4. Enjoy It!
If there is anything in college that I’ve noticed the most, it is that time will fly by. Don’t take a single day for granted in your senior year and make each day count!
For those entering senior year, enjoy the final weeks of summer and embrace this final opportunity to make a lasting impact in your school community!
