Mostly A The Motivated Senior
Senior year doesn’t stop you from doing your best. In fact, it energizes you. This is your last chance to get that elusive 4.0 GPA and put your best study habits forward. You’re determined to end your last year with a bang and high marks. We believe in you, you can do it! 

Mostly B The Nostalgic Senior
You’re not ready to say goodbye to the college days and dive headfirst into the adult world. As graduation approaches you can’t help but get caught up in the memories you’ve made here. You’re using these last months to catch up with friends from freshman year and make the most of your off-campus meal plan and school work. 

Mostly C The Laidback Senior
It’s been an exhausting three years and you’re ready to spend the last months in college enjoying the finer things in life — like sleeping in. Whether you’re feeling burned out or not, you’ve got your whole life ahead to worry about what everyone else is doing, so relax, re-watch your favorite TV show for a third time and hopefully remember to show up on time for graduation.

Mostly D The Can’t-Wait-to-Graduate Senior
You’ve made some great memories at MSU over the years, but it’s time to move on. While you wouldn’t trade them for the world, your peak college days are behind you, and it’s time to make new treads that go beyond the Red Cedar River. Whether it be spontaneous road trips across the state, or spending more time in neighboring Lansing, you’re ready to explore what else is “out there.”
