LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Livingston High School (LHS) Class of 2017 celebrated what is known as National College Decision Day on May 1, which officially is the last day for students to decide where they will attend college, but has also become a tradition at the high school for seniors to wear their college attire to school for the day. 

Many seniors gathered in the school parking lots prior to the start of the school day on Monday to celebrate, take photos with and congratulate their fellow classmates.

“At LHS, #DecisionDay is steeped in tradition and students celebrated the day in style by wearing the T-shirt of the college of their choice,” said Marilyn Lehren, Manager of Communications/Community Outreach, Livingston Public Schools. “After months searching for the perfect college ‘fit,’ they looked comfortable in their new colors, their choices varied, everything from joining the armed forces to the Ivy League, to state schools and community colleges.”

TAPinto Livingston thanks all of the students and parents who shared photos to commemorate this tradition. College Decision Day is the first of many upcoming events that makes graduating seem more real, according to many students.

Next week, 102 seniors will participate in the annual “Lancers on Parade” Fashion Show & Tricky Tray, the Big "L" Club’s largest fundraiser of the year, which recognizes the student athletes that will graduate next month. Big “L” Club President Joy Bushwell called this event the “beginning of the end” for the Class of 2017 and said the student athletes are looking forward to it.
