As the 2017-2018 school year begins, our senior class starts to have big responsibilities like college applications, SAT testing, and extracurricular activities. There is nothing that these seniors need more than advice. I got the opportunity to ask many recent graduates for their words of wisdom, and this is what they had to say.

RR: As an alumna of Rosary, what advice would you give to the senior class?

Olivia LaCasto ’17: Surround yourself with people who build you up and genuinely care about you. Also, spend a lot of time with your family because you don’t realize how much you’ll miss them and how much they’ll miss you when you go to college.

Kathleen Bigley ’17: Have fun senior year because it goes by quickly. Also, make the most of the time you have with your friends because once college comes, all of your friends are going to be spread out.

Jenna Steins ’17: I would say that even though you are going through the stresses of senior year, take this year to enjoy everything Rosary has to offer even if it seems silly. Soon, you’ll miss the silly and crazy things at Rosary.

Amelia Wiercioch ’17: I know this sounds cliché, but this year will fly by, so take in every moment. Go to Kairos and go all out this Red and Gold and take lots and lots of pictures.

Andi Hester ’17: Definitely get involved. The more involved you get, the more amazing people you get to know.

Sarah Ellersick ’17: I’d say that they need to do everything and don’t stay home all the time. Go to all the dances! Also apply to the college of your dreams because you never know if you could get in.

The running theme in all this advice has to do with making the most out of the final year of high school. Good luck seniors and have a great year!
