'A Year ‘Til Life Starts' is an ongoing series of photo essays following Boston-area college seniors as they prepare to graduate this spring.

Kelsey Jarboe, 22, is in her final semester of a double major at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. The Acton, Mass., native and youngest of three kids will earn a degree in art history and Studio for Interrelated Media (SIM).
