Thoughts Every Senior Has Leading Up to Graduation

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Pitt chapter.

Graduation is in less than two months and I cannot believe it. The past four years have flown by. Chances are, if you’re also graduating, your feelings about it probably change daily.

At the start of the semester, you probably felt excited:

Afterall, there’s only a few exams and presentations standing between you and that degree.

Unfortunately, these assignments feel like the end of the world…

… because senioritis is all too real.

And if you saved a gen. ed. for your last semester…

… you might not be able to handle some of the freshmen.

You’re probably trying to spend as much time with your friends as possible,

and every time you can’t go, you have serious FOMO.


job hunting is awful and stressful.

Sometimes reality sets in:

Your whole life is about to change completely and you might be moving away from your friends and everything you know and… and… and… so, you’ve got to make the most of the time you have left.

And, if you’re anything like me, you probably don’t feel the least bit ready to make your way in the real world, but we can do it! Our next big adventure is waiting!
