Overwhelming sadness and anxiety felt by underclassmen as a result of their close senior or upperclassman friends graduating.

Named after the book The Perks of Being a Wallflower, where a freshman's entire friend group is made up of seniors, but they are going to graduate.
I've gotten so close to many seniors that I can call them my best friends, and I'm scared for their graduation. It'll feel like losing an entire family. Perks syndrome has been hitting me hard.
