This year we’ve launched a monthly question feature, where our bloggers respond to questions from current high school students. Our November question is: What do you miss most about being a High School student?
Julie (U of MN – TC): Being surrounded by a close group of friends.
Lydia (MCAD): The ability to miss a class if you are ill and being able to make it up the next day. There is a zero absence policy at MCAD.
Ariana (UMN Duluth): I miss not having to do so much work. And being debt free!
Alia (MCTC): What I miss most from high school is having a school locker. There are lockers at my college, but not everyone gets one and they are super small. I miss having a locker to put my stuff in.
Maddi (Cal-Berkeley): The free time to do leisure activities; painting, working out, reading for pleasure etc.
Lucillia (St. Thomas): The thing I miss most about being a high school student is the amount of responsibility. Now that I am in college as an adult, I have many more responsibilities and sometimes it is too much.
