Three months ago, I wrote a story interviewing 3 seniors to see how they felt about graduating. I decided to follow up with them to see how their opinions changed. Bevan Roberts, 17, Jameela Memoli, 17, and Maggie Whitman, 17, all stated how excited they were to see what happens next, although they were going to miss their friends and families.
Bevan has been accepted into three colleges so far with still waiting for seven. So far, St Micheal’s, Roger Williams, and Johnson & Wales being her favorite so far for studying criminology. She explained her love for the campus including the fact that “there are only four days of classes so you have Friday off. The school has three private beaches for the college students.” Her parents are sad that she is leaving seeing as how her older brother is in college currently so they are worried about “being alone”.
Jameela has been accepted into Fisher College in Boston. She is still waiting on three, with Southern New Hampshire being her favorite. She is very excited to leave Vermont. “Southern New Hampshire’s college had a great atmosphere, and the campus, including the dorm rooms, is really nice!” She said she wants to “study criminal justice and do forensic science as my major.”
Maggie got accepted into Sienna, which is her safety school. She is still waiting to hear back from UVM which she made an early decision for. Maggie is the first kid in her family to go off to college. She stated that “I have two younger siblings, and I am going to miss their presence a lot.”
As the school year is coming to an end, and seniors are making college decisions you can tell some are very stressed for this next big step, but all students are getting excited about this next big chapter!
