13 First Week Thoughts of a Scranton Senior

Summer, it has come and gone, and the words “senior year” haven’t left your mouth all summer long. Now, as syllabus week arrives and you walk on campus for your last (hopefully) fall semester, something is different.  You are no longer concerned about whatever “freshmen you” was thinking about, but now taking in every moment. It is your last-first day of school, and you are thinking “oh sh*t.” Now you begin to think of all the small things that made this wonderful place your home for the past three years. Here are just a few thoughts that will be running through Scranton senior’s minds during the first week of class!

Is this really the beginning of the end?

This is it, my last year. I have to be ready, and then I’ll be ready to embrace the real world. But first, Cockeyed’s or Oscar’s.

I am going to give Flo an even bigger smile; I can’t, just come visit her after this year. 

I should automatically get a study room in LSC, I deserve it, and I have done my time. I can’t waste my time searching. 

Is it is too late to change my major?! Should I go to grad school? What happens if I can’t find a job?! 

Can I switch my major anyways so I can be in the new building, Leahy?!

My work-study job is not going to cut it for my savings.

I am going to have to learn how to cook. Who is going to make my breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between? I won’t just be up, down, or across, anymore.

How many Tuesdays left for Dollar Bottles?

Maybe I should use the gym that I have been avoiding for the past three years.

It’s fine, because I won’t have to walk up these hills anymore.

Wait, I’ll be an alum after this years Parade Day….

Just remember, it’s always a great day to be a royal, make this year the very best!

Dominique is your everyday Northeastern Pennsylvanian, and will probably have a different hair style every time you see her. She loves being outdoors, and finding an adventure in everything. She currently studies as a Senior History, Political Science, and International Studies triple major with a concentration in Italian at the University of Scranton. Dominique also studied abroad in Rome, Italy, not only falling in love with everything Italian, all the pizza, but with travel itself. Weird facts: Her favorite word is melanzane (eggplant), she writes most of her notes backwards (right to left too) and has a 130lb white German Shepherd named Kitty (he’s a boy).
