Every senior has hit a cross road. It’s almost graduation time and college will come in a blink of the eye. For a lot of students, senior year is the time to find out what college provides the best future.

For a few students at Kennedy, they will be taking their college experience out of state.

Draven Fuller, sr., will be attending Maryville University in St. Louis, Mo.

“I wanted to go there because Maryville has the number one sports business program in the nation,” Fuller said.

Going to a college out of state can seem like an exciting experience, but it also means leaving home behind.

“I know at first it’s going to be scary, but it’s something I want to do,” Fuller said.

Living in a new city with new people can be somewhat of a culture shock for these students and home will not be down the street anymore. Visits home might just be for major holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas.

“I’m going to miss my friends and family the most,” Taylor Moss, sr. Moss will be traveling to Colorado to attend the University of Denver.

“I like the city of Denver, I like the location and the school is the right size for me,” Moss said.

Moving away from home can also provide a chance to meet new people and narrow in on the future.

“I’m excited to live out on my own and experience new things,” Moss said.
