How to Use Your Senior Privileges

With your new senior privs, you will no longer be shackled by IMSA's pesky rules! Except by all the rules that still apply to you. | Source: Pixabay

Senior privileges, the holy grail of all IMSA privileges, came out in recent weeks for the Class of 2020. Since these privs are new, many IMSA seniors aren’t sure what to do with them just yet. In order to use them to their fullest extent, here are a few ideas about how to use your senior privs. And remember, seniors who haven’t gotten them yet, the extra time you have to wait is just more time to brainstorm.

  • Sleepovers in the same halls before I-days. If you and your SIR partner live in the same hall, you can bring your procrastination to new heights by doing the work your SIR mentor assigned you at 4 AM, three hours before you have to report to the TV pit.
  • Sign out during school days (between 8 AM and 3 PM). Having, of course, engineered your schedule so that you have first mod off, as all seniors have, start your day off right with a morning jog with a friend to Starbucks. Get your daily shot of caffeine while taking care of your body at the same time! If your friend isn’t willing, were they ever a true friend anyway?
  • TV/projector with DVD/Blu-ray player. Buy a TV, find a space for it in your room (good luck with that one), and promptly never use it. Alternatively, buy a projector and use it to visually aid your studying while annoying your roommate at the same time. It’s a win-win.
  • Weeknight on campus check exemption. AKA, no rolling check Monday-Friday. Enable your busy schedule by staying in the main building from the first mod until 10 PM. If you’re a club leader, schedule a meeting from 6:15 PM to 7:45 PM, a move your underclassmen will surely appreciate.

Hopefully, you’ll now be well-armed to take advantage of these privs and rub their existence in your underclassmen’s faces. After all, what’s the point of being a senior without laughs at the expense of your younger, more vulnerable peers?
