Christina Singer surveys homework still to do in Q4.

Senior Christina Singer sits on her bedroom floor at the end of April vacation going through some homework she still has to do. Rainy, raw weather provided for a perfect excuse to stay inside in pajamas all day. “I hate the weather here,” said Singer, who plans to take a year off next year and move to Florida. “I’m gaining residency so that I can can to the University of Central Florida at the in-state tuition price,” she explained. As a backup plan, Singer also applied to and was accepted at Valencia College. “I might end up taking classes there next year. By doing that, I can knock my general education requirements out of the way.” Like many students about to graduate in June, Singer admits to some senior year burnout.
