“We are angels, we come from Heaven, we are the class of 87!”

The year is 1987. Big hair is roaming the halls everywhere. Layered socks, rolled jeans, and KED’S have taken over Circle High School. Teens are cruising down Central Street in El Dorado, blaring music from the hottest hairbands and Rick Springfield.

This is how Circle students lived back in the 80’s. Many things have changed since then, but a lot has remained the same. Lori Albertson, a former student at Circle High who graduated in 87’, has many experiences both similar and different to all of ours now.

“Things have changed so much since I was at Circle. We were more free to, well, be a teenager,” Albertson said. “There where less restrictions from both authority and society. Times were easier and more laid back.”

Not only are there more restrictions now, but the activities students take part in differing as well. From the music we listen to, to the way we behave are all different. Our society has more of a sense of entitlement, even though society’s rules have become more strict. Even at the high school things have changed.

“ You kids now have so much more opportunities to educate yourselves than we did. There are much more curriculums and classes you guys can take, such as the Butler courses. I wish I had that when I went there. I also feel there is a more of a push for teenagers to go to college than compared to back in my day,” said Albertson.

Not everything has changed though. Fashion statements in the 80’s, such as scrunchies, checkered patterns, fanny packs, rolled up jeans, windbreakers, crop-tops, Adidas, and so much more are making their comeback in 2018. 80’s music and polaroids are also on the rise again.

“It is neat to see my daughter wearing some of the same styles I used to wear 30 years ago. I wish big hair would make a comeback too. Hair was how everyone defined themselves. Although I pray that shoulder pads never make a comeback,” Albertson said.
