Is 'Senioritis' Catching?

"Senioritis" is described as decreased motivation for studies evidenced by students who are nearing graduation. In its most serious form, it can lead to failed courses and delayed graduation or deflated grades which can have on-going negative effects for those seeking to go on to graduate work.

Seniors are carrying more than their share of emotional concerns during their last semester. The initial step in easing the symptoms is to simply recognize that the causes are real. Accepting those realities, talking about them and facing them head on with your senior student is much more effective than having them try to hide from these realities or "partying" them away.

Is "Senioritis" catching? The answer is yes, as we are all susceptible to being influenced by the moods of those around us. Happy people make us happy, sad people make us feel sad, etc. Seniors need to stick together and support each other in the fight against senioritis.
