  San Luis Obispo High School’s yearbooks were available for student pickup starting this Thursday, May 30. One of SLOHS students favorite parts of the yearbook is looking at senior quotes. 

  Choosing a senior quote for the SLOHS Yearbook can be a daunting task for some San Luis Obispo High School seniors. 

  Trying to encapsulate their entire high school experience into one quote can leave some students feeling overwhelmed. The truth is, senior quotes aren’t actually that big of a deal and are something to be excited about.

  Now that yearbooks are available, Expressions interviewed some seniors about their own senior quotes to understand what goes into the choosing process. 

  “I love the senior quotes and looking at them every year. It’s fun to see people you know and be like ‘yep, that quote sums them up pretty well.’ It doesn’t need to be deep. It can just be silly little lines that make you laugh,” said senior Allison Schultze. 

  Some students make their quote a song lyric, a quote by someone you look up to, or even matching quotes with their friends. 

  “The quotes add a way for each senior to include something personal. I also usually include shoutouts, a place where seniors can recognize people that were important to them through their high school journey,” said AP English teacher and yearbook adviser Ryan Mammarella. 

  Matching quotes can be a fun way to remember a friendship or a fun memory as well.

  “Every time I tell my best friend something I always think, ‘omg I have to tell my bestie,’ and I brought that up with her and she was cool with it. My best friend is a very special person to me, so having a quote that’s with her is great,” said senior Téa Fischer.

  If seniors want to go a different direction, they can try something sassy or sarcastic to summarize their high school experience, if they’re looking for something that will be memorable. 

  “One gets a sense of who the senior is by what they choose to include in the limited character count offered to them” said Mammarella. 

  Whatever direction seniors choose, they should make sure the quote represents a part of them and is something they can look back on. Enjoy looking at the new yearbooks, Tigers!
