Seniors, Finding a College Roommate
Trying to find a college roommate can be stressful. I even know how stressful it can be because I am a senior right now. I have found a couple useful tips for finding a roommate or even people to meet who are going to your college. One way to find a roommate or new people, is to go on Facebook and join your college and year of graduation year’s group. Since I am going to Miami University and graduating college in 2022 I joined the Facebook group Miami University Class of 2022. Seniors can do the same but put in their school of choice instead. Once on the page you can see posts from people going to the school and decide whether or not you want to message them about rooming or just being friends. Also, If you want you can post about yourself and see who answers. On the Facebook page you can also join group messages to talk to people going to your college. If you don’t want to go through this process you can pick a person you already know, search on a different site or go with a random roommate. I would highly suggest to try one of these ways to meet a roommate or new people. Patrick said, “I decided to go with somebody I already know and I am very exited for college.”
12/12/17 Should Have Been A Snow Day?
Many students think that Tuesday December 12, 2017 should have in fact been a snow day. All the conditions for a snow day were present, roads were iced over and they were not plowed at all, snow was coming down in large quantities, snow storm began giving more than enough time for a snow day. Two cars ended up in ditches, which is lucky due to how many students actually drive to school. Many students have hand-me-down cars and cannot safely drive on these roads. One Kenston student ended up in a ditch due to these roads and when they arrived to school they recieved a detention!! Ridiculous! BE CAREFUL KENSTON.

How to Have a College-Ready Mindset
For some students the topic of college is terrifying, but for others it means freedom. The main reason that students view college-readiness as such a worrisome subject is due to all the stress and preparation it requires. In order to make your student-life easier and less stress-based, then here are a few steps to consider following. First, always challenge yourself in High School because the education level in college is only going to get harder. Secondly, communicate with adults such as, parents or counselors to gain knowledge on the true experience of college-life. Lastly, take advantage of every opportunity you are offered in order to acquire the greatest amount of knowledge possible.
