Senior year is filled with fun, fellowship, and… college decisions. As the year of 2018 draws to a close, the class of 2019 have been scurrying to meet deadlines for applications and scholarships. Applying for college may sound easy, but it is quite possibly one of the most stressful processes a high school student will endure. On average, seniors will apply to seven or more schools, paying around forty dollars per application. One senior verbalized a thought each student of the graduating class has had, “I’m scared.” Some are also swamped with schoolwork they have currently, causing the stress levels to rise. Savannah Fields, 12,  says, “I wish teachers could have eased up on the work they assigned us because we were applying for college.” She is not alone; walking down the hallway, many can be heard expressing the same wish. Others, like Will Frye, 12, believe that applying for college “is a lot of work” but it is “not as bad as it’s made out to be.”

Despite the fear seniors have for their unpredictable futures, they have an amazingly supportive staff (one of the best being their college counselor, Kehla Vance), helping them every step of the way.
