The Trouble with Senior Quotes

Senior quotes have been around for quite some time. Quotes started to become more of a thing close to the year 1914. You can find a whole Cosmopolitan article dedicated to the seniors of that year; the students’ humor was definitely ahead of its time. Check it out!

     Let’s discuss the hidden problem about this tradition. Sometimes, it’s the part of a student’s senior year: trying to figure out what you want to say, especially coming up with something creative and witty – the ones with good advice, bad advice, funny quotes, or inside jokes that only a few people will understand. These give a glimpse into each student and who they are, using just a couple words.

Personally, I am having a hard time finding out what I want to say. Something creative? Something funny? Meaningful? Maybe, “A snake walks into a bar, and the bartender asks, ‘How did you do that?’” Hey, seniors!! We need 75% of you to add your quotes, or we will not be doing them this year!
