Final exams for seniors start next week, and after that it’s smooth sailing for them. Their last day of school is May 30th, and they’re all counting down the days until their high school lives are over.

The term “senioritis” refers to seniors in high school or college slacking off or being more calm than they were in previous years because they’re leaving. This state of mind has intensified at Cape in these last two months of the school year because they leave nine days earlier than the other grades.

“I’m usually an A student who always turns in work on time without a problem, but now it’s a struggle to complete even simple assignments,” Senior Shawn Gray said. Her story is like many others’ at the school because of how focused and worried they are about going to college. Shawn will be attending West Virginia University in the fall.

Seniors are both happy and proud at this point in the year. “It’s a nice feeling because I made it through high school and onto the next level of education,” Senior Mahadaye LeCounte said. He will be attending California Lutheran University this fall.

On the other hand, many are sad about leaving their high school lives behind forever. “Some classes I loved because I loved the teacher and I was surrounded by ambitious friends,” Senior Megha Patel said. College will be less engaging because there are normally over 50 people in a class, so professors won’t get to know everyone. On top of that, students probably won’t know anyone when they walk into a class for the first time.

Although seniors will be gone by next week, they still have graduation and their last set of finals to look forward to before they start a new chapter in their lives.
