May is almost here and that means thousands of recent college graduates will be hitting the workforce or continuing their education in graduate school. As the weeks pass until graduation, college seniors wonder what they should do to pass the time until graduation. I’ve compiled a bucket list of sorts for seniors to celebrate their final weeks as a university student. Hope you enjoy!
Dye your hair a crazy color like green or purple (or your favorite color!) Once you enter the workforce, chances are your employer will not approve of green hair. Dye your hair while you still can and take plenty of photos to remember the moment!
Take time to sit in the quad. Chances are you probably walked by the quad every day for four years without stopping to bask in its beauty. Slow down, lie in the grass and reminisce about your time as a student at your university. It may sound cliché, but seriously: stop and smell the roses!
Get a picture with your university mascot. Depending on the size of your university, you may or may not have met your mascot. If you have met your mascot, you may not have taken a photo with him since freshman orientation. Either way, find your mascot and take a photo! It will be a great memory you will cherish for years to come.
Watch the sunrise over your campus. Most college students do not wake up until well after the sun has already risen. Look at your campus in a different way by watching the sun slowly rise over the buildings. Bring a camera. Take some photos.
Explore your college town. If you haven’t done so already, take a trip to see the sights in your college town. After graduation you might be moving to a new town so take some time and see the tourist-y sites that make your college town special. Most importantly, take some photos so you will have something to remember your college town by other than your diploma.
Write a note to your future self. Write down your dreams and expectations. Plan to open it 5 to 10 years from now to see if you turned into the person you planned to be when you started college. Even if your dreams don’t go as planned, the letter will be a nice blast from the past.
Graduate! You have worked hard for the past 4-5 years so bask in your accomplishment! You are ready to go out into the world and share the large amount of knowledge you gained at your university. Congratulations!
