Senior year can easily be your most fun year of high school yet, but it's also the only time left between you & college. So then, make the most of it & do everything you need to be prepared for an awesome college experience! To help you do just that, here is a list of pointers to guide you in the right direction:

Last First Day

Last First Day

I didn't picture myself writing this blog at home. As I sat at the dining room table, cornbread browned in the oven, NFL football blared from the living room, and the trees sparkled with frozen crystals of ice in the sunlight. I was supposed to be in Clinton, snuggled on the love seat in my tiny apartment, savoring a hot cup of tea, only a stone's throw from the campus that I have called home for nearly four years. That was the setting I imagined writing about my last first day of class, yet things change. The fact that my last first day has come announces this truth: things do, in fact, change. This day signifies that what once began will draw to a close.

After a couple of years working at the Choctawk and volunteering as  Scout, I feel (mostly) qualified to write this blog where I answer prospective students' Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). You asked, and I listened. 

Dear Seniors. It's 2015.

Dear Seniors. It's 2015.
