High school and college classes communities - Please read

High school graduating classes often adapt a yearly title for posterity in the form of Class of [blank.] In the upcoming weeks, we will see millions of students joining the High School Class of 2013. When moving to college, they will generally switch that qualifier for one that is Class of 2017, reflecting the typical expectation that college is a four year process.

This is, however, becoming less and less true, as students might graduate in three or even two years, or adopt a different pace and follow a path of additional years. In addition, the journey hardly stops with the undergraduate years, as many embark on graduate studies.

For this reason, we are presenting the projected corresponding classes:

Parents of the High School Class of 2009/College Class of 2013
Parents of the High School Class of 2010/College Class of 2014
Parents of the High School Class of 2011/College Class of 2015
Parents of the High School Class of 2012/College Class of 2016
Parents of the High School Class of 2013/College Class of 2017
Parents of the High School Class of 2014/College Class of 2018
Parents of the High School Class of 2015/College Class of 2019
Parents of the High School Class of 2016/College Class of 2020
Parents of the High School Class of 2017/College Class of 2021

The above list, however, serves merely as a reference.

Inasmuch as the forum will remain organized by high school classes, we are now removing the college class references. Over time, we will seek to replace the uniform college class of 20XX with a short and unique term that reflects the preferences of the participants in each high school class. We have made some changes to indicate the type of titles that will be accepted.

Thank you!
