Q . O - Lost in the shuffle It was the beginning of your junior year. You'd made it fer the hump of the first two years and were looking down stead of up the road to graduation - or so it would seem. our grades were in "not so good" to "so-so" shape and au felt a little bit lost as to where you fit in. It seemed like nobody knew what class you fell into. You joked too old to be a sophomore but maybe not experienc- l enough to be a senior. Yet, most people usually asked mu, "You're a sophomore, aren't you?" or, 'iYou're going i graduate in May, right?" When you said you were a junior iey might have replied, "Oh, a junior." What an answer, as juniors were some type of scientific wonder. j You probably moved off campus this year and began to btice the change. No longer did you have buddies down ie hall, but housemates whom you saw every single day, hether you liked it or not. Life didn't revolve around the lmpus as much as it did your first two years, the class as a fhole became more diversihed and you began to lose con- jct with some of those buddies from down the hall. jAs the year wore on, projects in classes began to get laviet. You remember someone telling you the junior year jwhen you really get into your major. And as you started etting behind, the five-year graduation plan began to ecome a possibility. The thought of that made you starr some midnight oil to get your work done. ou were in a social club, you most likely weren't an of- Your sophomore year all the attention was on you as a now you were just a member for two more years. the organizations the seniors were usually the of- you wished they would just hurry up and could become an officer and run things You might not have always agreed with the senior leaders, you did have lots of friends in the senior class and pro- lr Y l r , r 'SLE W Class ALTIYITUCS ioeniors unlofs Sophs Fish N In . , ..: ..-,-4-5-Q x,-,.A,e1a1sfNf0-f-:f'- , 2 '-E :,.:""'w- t . js - ,E "L: "Q"-rr-L .

"It" might have been the presiden- cy ofa club or organization or a director of some event. As spring set in, your feeling of limbo began to leave and you started making plans for your senior year, You might have watched some of the seniors as they got ready to leave. You saw them typing resumes, sweating through interviews and, worst of all, saying goodbye to friends for maybe the last time. You, too, saw some friends for the last time, and a different kind of limbo began to set in. But you didn't let it get you down, you still had one more year left and almost everyone you wanted to see would be back. Next year you could stand up and say "l'm a senior" and a certain amount of respect would be cast upon you that wasn't there your junior year. Hardly ever would anybody ask you if you were a sophomore or a senior now because you'd let everyone know you would be getting out in May. Still there were going to be those few who didn't remember you were a senior but would suddenly recall that illusive classification and say, "You're a junior this year, aren't you?" -- Cbarler L.
