A Complete Guide to Senioritis as Told by Modern Family

Four years. 120 credits. 14 core curriculums.

At this point in the college career of a senior, it’s not uncommon for them to be lightly toasted, burnt, or charred by the demand of classes. The “pay me to do this stuff already” mentality sweeps over campus and priorities switch from academics to future ambitions.

Don’t even get me started on Mondays. They’re really just a wasteland for extinct unicorns and dreams:

So when the professor keeps you 30 seconds past class because you’re definitely eager to get to your next one, you can’t help but get sassy:

…homework is only 10% of the grade anyways, right?

And let’s be real, you’re lucky that I’m even wearing pants to class.

Then somewhere between graduation anxiety, sleep deprivation and nostalgia, you remember right before falling asleep on a bed of textbooks and highlighters at night all the good memories that Towson has given you:
