Every year, The Forum asks graduating seniors to reflect on their time at Claremont and write a memoir. The catch? It has to be six words or less. Some responses are funny, some are sweet, and most allude to stories and experiences only some people will understand. The result is a jumble of nostalgic quotes that will probably make some of you cry in 20 years.
Here are the memoirs from the class of 2017:
