As the end of the year approaches, seniors are making their final decisions about where they will spend the next four years of their lives, and what paths they will take. Many of them are excited to be leaving home, but as the year comes to an end, with all the senior activities taking place, many students are beginning to have mixed feelings about leaving all of their friends and family to go off on their own.
While looking at colleges students are filled with excitement to be growing up and think going far away from their hometown would be the best fit for them. However, moving far away from your friends and family is not always the best choice for everyone. Senior, Brianna Laggis, stated, “Even though I’m very excited to be going to FSU for my spring semester, I’m happy I’ll be at SHU in the fall, so I’ll be close to home while I’m transitioning. I can’t wait to graduate and go to college, but I’m going to miss my family and friends a lot because we’re all so close.”
Many students at Foran are pursuing their college careers down in the Carolinas or Florida. Senior, Brandon Whelan, states, “I’m really excited for the new beginnings and the chance to start something I’m really interested in, but it’s going to be very hard to leave my friends and family back in Milford.” With left than a month of school left until graduation, the seniors are coming to realization that one part of their lives is coming to an end while another is just beginning.
