Second semester seniors have rocked the GC life for almost four years now (or two for transfers). We’ve heard multiple different questions over the course of four years that are stereotypical to the GC life like “What are your top 5 strengths?” or “How have you grown spiritually since being here?” Apartment 311 has compiled a list of 30 things that seniors are tired of hearing this spring semester.


1. “What are your plans for next year?”


2. “Do you think your top 5 strengths have changed?”


3. “Sorry, I can’t come. I have an interview.”


4. “I just realized this is our last __________ together.”


5. “Do you want to sit on Scott’s field?” “NO, I want to sit on SCOTT field!”


6. “Emails that begin with, “Hello Graduating Seniors!”


7. “You better visit Pam Potts!” “Does her name have one or two T’s?”


8. “You better start networking.”


9. “Everything will work out.”


10. “So, how many days until graduation?”

22. “You’re single? Do you plan on taking after Paul?”


23. “Did you get a full credit for walking and running online, or juggling?”


24.  “Do you plan on drinking after graduation?”


25. “Are you cutting your ivy alone, or keeping it connected to your boyfriend’s?”
