If you are a second-semester college senior, you probably just realized you are less than 100 days away from completing your undergraduate career. In less than 100 days you will be crossing that stage, receiving one of the most expensive pieces of paper of your life. That piece of paper may have cost at least $200,000 in tuition, $500+ for nights out, $1,000 in textbooks, many sleepless nights, and a whole lot of stress. But by your graduation day, I am sure you will think it was all worth it. However until graduation, here are some of the feelings we will be feeling until we are officially the Class of 2017!

1. Excitement

You begin to feel excitement knowing that in a few short months you will be a college graduate. You begin to feel excitement knowing that you are going to have a great last few months with your best friends and be able to live it up all day, every day.

2. Stress

Now you begin to feel the stress and pressure of finding a job with less than 100 days until graduation. You begin to feel the stress of your senior thesis, all the classes you need to graduate, and everything else you need to get done in the next few weeks.

3. Heartbroken

Now everything you do on and off campus starts to become a series of lasts. The last time you take the Valiant into White Plains to go to Brother Jimmy's. The last time you take the 3 AM Valiant back to campus. The last time you get to have a gross pub wrap - I mean who would actually miss that? The last time you get to go lay out on the Quad. And your last Nights Parties and Quad Jam.

4. Fear

You begin to start feeling "fear of the unknown." What will happen once you graduate and what will happen to the friendships you have built through your time at college. You also begin to feel fearful about passing all your classes and graduating "on time."

Good luck seniors! We are officially in double digits!
