Has anyone been through senioritis? I am a junior experiencing senioritis. If so, do you have any tips on how to beat senioritis?

What exactly do you mean by "senioritis"? What exactly are you experiencing that you are calling "senioritis"?

I'm burned out from school and my studies. I keep pushing myself but in the end I feel empty.

I'm hoping the next school year will be my final year of college, so you are not alone.

Assuming you're talking about burnout from high school, yes I've totally been there. In my experience, the best thing you can to is tell teachers in early on that you're dealing with a lot of burnout and may need extensions. I went to a very lenient school, so it might be harder to get accomodations/extensions where you're at, but generally teachers are more likely to be understanding if they know what's going on. In terms of personal stuff, it's cliche but going on walks along helped me recharge quite a bit.

I haven’t had that since 1979.

The advice above is good.

I've had senioritis before. I honestly thought it was depression at first. The excitement of being in your last year of school can wear off when you're so burned out from it.

I just learned earlier today that this school year will not be the final year of college for me.

According to an adviser, I need four more classes to complete my BA in English
alongside meeting with a specialist who could help me complete requirements for my Minor.
