Underclassmen Confused as Seniors Play Angry Game of Tag

The SDA Health Office has reported that increasing numbers of freshmen and sophomores have come in throughout the past month reporting various degrees of confusion over Senior Out.
Maddy Cation, the health counselor, told the Sentinel that freshmen are especially concerned about the aggression that seniors are showing over Senior Out.

“Students new to SDA have come to me crying over how persistent seniors are that they walk with them so they don’t get tagged,” Walkin said. “It’s quite concerning for these new, fragile freshmen as they don’t really know what’s going on.”

Seniors have been recruiting underclassmen to escort them to and from classes so that they don’t get tagged. According to Shayan Madd, a senior who got out early, these underclassmen are crucial to not getting out.

“If you want to stay in the game, it’s important that you have some freshman with you at all times,” Madd said. “The mistake I made was not aggressively courting underclassmen to be my posse.”

Freshmen came together during a freshman-only event after school Thursday to voice their concerns over being considered props by seniors instead of real people. The event was attended by the administration and zero seniors.

“It’s really infuriating how the seniors think they can just boss us around,” said Anne Grie, a freshman, before being belligerently asked by a large senior boy to escort him to his next class. “Freshmen aren’t props. We are going to make clear that we are not going to be used just for some stupid game.”
