“It’s insane how quickly this year has gone by,” Gianna Peralli said. “Like, 13 more weeks and then we leave. We won’t all ever be together again. It’s crazy to think about.”

Brooke Johnson says the moment is bittersweet.

“It’s sad to be leaving all my friends, but I’m excited for what comes next.”

Breanna Thomas agreed.

“I’m stressed and nervous for this chapter of my life to end, but eager to start a new one,” she said.

Some students are not as enthusiastic as others.

“It is what it is,” said Haley Legg. “I’m just trying to get through it the best I can.”

Kyle Fritz said, “I don’t really care. It’s going to happen no matter how I feel about it, so I’m indecisive.”

Hannah York said, “I’m super stressed. There’s so much left to get done still.”
