6 Last Semester Senioritis Do’s And Don’ts

Confession time. I loved my undergrad experience, but last semester of my senior year, it was really hard to stay motivated. I had already technically earned enough credits to graduate, so I was only taking enough credits to stay a part-time student. Something I didn’t realize at the time was that by taking minimum credits, I kept myself off the dean’s list: at my college, you had to be taking 16 credits for the dean’s list, and I was only taking 12. So, on the one hand, it was nice to have an easy spring semester that gave me a chance to look toward my future and not suffer too much from my senioritis (which was definitely in full effect).

On the other hand, even though my GPA was awesome, I missed out on making the dean’s list my last semester as a college student. If you’re in the middle of spring semester already and are suffering from a bad bout of senior year senioritis, check out these do’s and don’ts to stay motivated and keep on top of your goals for graduation.
