As upperclassmen make final preparations to plan for college and their life after high school, a few seniors from the graduating Class of 2018 decided to partake in an interview to reflect on their four year journey here at Pitman High and give beneficial advice to incoming freshmen. From procrastinating on countless projects to passing rigorous classes, these seniors have seen and done it all.

Simran Bains and Sandeep Kaur, for example, are two seniors who are ready to leave high school and further pursue their education at their respective colleges: UC Merced and CSU Stanislaus.

Although anxious to become an adult, Bains encourages lowerclassmen to “enjoy high school to its fullest extent because it’s a once in a lifetime thing and you won’t be able to go back to it. Right now, we say we hate it but high schoolers are for the most part carefree.”

She went on further emphasizing the importance of getting good grades while Kaur added on advising freshmen to manage their time wisely. “One of the most important things freshmen can learn how to do is create a schedule. I personally didn’t learn how to do that until later though.”

Aubrey Cayabyab, who is also leaving for Stanislaus State, jokingly added that any and all orchestra kids who decide to go on the annual trip should never bring their phone on a ride because it might just fall and shatter.

Additionally, Aubrey tells freshmen to “not be late every morning to first period because detentions are annoying and they add up.”

On a serious note, Noah Alvarez (MJC) offers advice to teens since “one thing that causes bad grades is depression.” Not wanting others to go down the same route he did freshmen year, Noah believes trying different things and not remaining static can help with relieving depression.

These senior students were happy to give their time in offering advice to the lowerclassmen of Pitman High School. So to any of the new freshmen coming in, take your time to read these words of wisdom from our graduating class of 2018.
