Some of the seniors to answer the questions that are on everybody’s mind. A little more than 97% of the students who responded are going to be attending college. Thirty seven students responded to this survey.

Only one person gave an answer to another option that they make and that is modeling or acting. 34.3% of people are still undecided about where they want to go to college. Aims and Colorado State University were tied at 17.1% for the people who want to go to college at those locations.

Seven people that responded are doing something other than going to college after high school ends.

40.5% of people are searching for the school that offers their major. Price and location are also other big factors when searching for the right college.

The stress of senior year and the thought of being apart of society in a few short months varies for people. One on the scale is not stressed at all and ten is stressed about everything.

Chess club, choir, collegiate FFA, a sorority are all options that people are looking into. Other options that people might pursue is listed below:
