Colleges, colleges, colleges . . . It seems like the whole school has fallen into chaos since college decisions came out a couple of weeks ago. Underclassmen and juniors walked around on eggshells on “Ivy Tuesday,” and cringed when they thought about going through the dreaded process themselves.
But we here at The Scroll have a message for all of you worriers: everything is going to be okay. Some of you seniors are stressed about what you know is in store, and others still don’t have a clue about where you’ll end up. But we urge you to remember that wherever life takes you, Deerfield has you well prepared for it.
Think about it this way: Deerfield is an environment that kindles the fires of hard work and responsibility. While inevitably some of us take to those qualities more than others, our Deerfield days have made sure that we all (yes–all of us) have the foundation necessary to succeed in college and beyond.
We strongly believe that everyone ends up where they are supposed to, and that everything happens for a reason. So to all of the seniors leaving us in six short weeks, we wish you the best of luck….but we don’t think you’ll need it.
