Regrets. We all have things we wish we would have been warned or informed about before we stepped into a new adventure in our lives. This feeling is one that many seniors at CB are having as they enter the final year of our high school career. Many of us would do anything to know what we could’ve done differently to maximize the high school experience. In the spirit of the Lasallian way of helping others, seniors shared advice for freshman about freshman year, the rest of high school, and life in general, so that freshman might be able to make the most out of their four years. Enjoy, and freshman, be sure to pay attention to the seniors’ advice, as it will surely help you navigate your way through high school and beyond.

“Don’t worry about finding yourself as an underclassmen because you find yourself junior and senior year. Freshman year is just for you to come into your own and make some friends. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and go on trips. The best friends that I’ve made have come from experiences outside of class, such as clubs, Open Mic Night, Venaver. Go out and be part of the community”

“Be active in everything that you do and don’t think that showing school spirit isn’t cool. Also, dress up for every spirit day. Get involved with sports medicine, especially guys, come be a trainer. Try hard in school because freshman grades are important even if you don’t think they are. If your GPA sucks freshman year, then you really have to work harder later, so just work hard freshman year.”

Jules Fuhs (’18)

“Don’t walk the wrong way in the hallway”

Zach Lau (’18)

“Every single spirit day, go hard!!! Always dress up for every single spirit day. Cheer and get hyped and get all your friends to cheer and have fun. It’s not too cool to cheer.”

Sam Tanberg (’18)

“Don’t assume a teacher doesn’t like you because they’re hard on you. Most likely they’re hard on you because they love you and want you to succeed”

Madeleine Molitor (’18)

“Enjoy your four years because it goes by really fast. And don’t be afraid to meet new people. It may seem like people might not want to be friends with you, but they really do!”

That’s some great advice right there. Especially to always be spirited and don’t think that supporting your school isn’t cool. High school will be gone before you know it, so never miss a chance to have a memorable experience. Also, try not to worry about the little things in life, because when we let the little things get in the way of the more important things in life, that’s a shame.  Everyone should listen to the seniors’ advice, not just the freshman, as we can all learn a thing or two from our insightful seniors. We are all constantly changing and always have room for improvement, so let’s all take a minute and think about how we can be better ourselves and make the world a better place, especially with guidance from some of the wisest people on campus.
