    19 Things Every College Senior Should Do Before They Graduate

    I'm not crying. You're crying.

    So graduation is coming up. That's great.

    "As we go on we remember all the times we spent together," blah blah blah.

    But there's a couple of things you should probably do before turning the tassel.

    1. You know that person you have a crush on but never speak to? Yeah, now's the time.

    You can avoid them for the rest of your life if it doesn't work out. So go for the gold.

    2. Do a walk-through of your campus. Chances are you've missed a couple spots (the library) and you should take it all in before you leave.

    3. Mentally and physically prepare yourself for the madness that is senior week.

    4. And take advantage of all of the Senior Week activities.

    5. Have a corny sitting-on-the-quad reflecting on life moment.

    6. Have a sleepover with your friends because chances are you'll never live in such close proximity again.

    7. Spend a solid two hours at breakfast/dinner/lunch and eat like you never gained the freshman 15.

    8. Enjoy your last weeks without stressing too much about finals – C's get degrees.

    9. Have a good cry session with your best friends.

    10. And also a nice drinking sesh.

    11. Feast on some delicious drunk food without remorse.

    12. If you haven't gone to class looking like a slob yet, now's the time to roll outta bed and put zero effort in.

    13. Do a stupid college thing that you typically wouldn't do.

    14. Participate in one school tradition (undie run, fountain run, block parties).

    15. Take a corny photo with your mascot that you can show your kids.

    16. Take a nap in the middle of the day — because in the real world, that doesn't happen.

    17. Talk to someone who you never got a chance to get to know but always wanted to.

    18. Take advantage of the drink specials at that cheap bar everyone at your school frequents.

    19. And thank your friends/parents/siblings or whoever helped you get through those four years.
