Here’s What People Don’t Tell You About Graduating

As told by those on their #RoadFromRyerson.

The 2015/16 school year has come to an end and those graduating this Spring and Fall are about to embark on their #RoadFromRyerson.

Some are majorly excited to go.

Others are rather sad to leave.

Most, however, are experiencing a combination of emotions.

Here’s what Rye’s soon-to-be alum and others answered via Twitter to RU Student Life’s latest #RoadToRyerson question.

1. That you mentally graduate long before convocation:

The final exam of my undergrad degree is in two days and I can't concentrate on my notes because I mentally checked out three months ago.

— Jessica Myshrall (@YouveReachedJes)

2. That not knowing what’s next feels super weird:

4 years later and I still have no idea what's going on but BYE RYERSON 🍾🎉

— Michelle (@michellememme)

3. That it brings back teenage memories:

@RUStudentLife [Pt.1] Some things ppl don't tell you about grad is that it feels like high school all over again where #RoadFromRyerson

— Urooj Siddiqui (@Urooj72)

@RUStudentLife [Pt.2] you feel that giddy, uncertain feeling and you're not sure what will happen from here. #RoadFromRyerson @RU_FEAS

— Urooj Siddiqui (@Urooj72)

4. That sleeping will be how you celebrate:

pt. 4. I am done my undergrad. What is next you ask? .... for now, this.

— Alicia (@alicia_rowley)

Why turn up when you can take a nap?!

5. That it’s a very sensitive time:

Spent my morning ugly crying at the Gilmore Girls Season 6 reunion between Rory & Lorelai, so that's my #RoadfromRyerson.

6. That you’re not alone – your classmates are feeling it too!

Had my first class at Ryerson with him, and now I've just had my last 💁🏻 #startedfromthebottom ?

— Nicole Da Silva (@nicoledasilva_)

7. That your degree doesn’t define your career:

8. That saying goodbye may be harder than you think:

Technically done and graduating but still at Rye everyday for work because I'm not ready to leave this place yet... #RoadFromRyerson

— Arin Renaud (@arin_renaud)

9. That 10 after actually means you’re late:

Things I Will Miss About Ryerson: • Ryerson Time • summer in the Housing office • no questions about wearing face paint #RoadFromRyerson

— hvd (@hannahvandyk)

10. That you have to enter the “real world” now:

Me when I realize I'm done my undergrad and that "summer vacation" is actually now just unemployment..... 😭😭😭

— Jasmin Husain (@jasminhusain)

11. That everyone takes to a different path:

@RUStudentLife not getting a job straight away doesn't make you a failure!

— Leandra Vermeulen (@mrbenlanders)

12. That not being a student = being an adult:

ME 4YRS AGO: what is this Uni nonsense I don't want to do more school ME NOW: what is this graduation nonsense I don't want to be an adult

— Lexie Hinde (@LexieH19)

13. That you’re more than your future full-time job:

.@dynamyk takes to the The Last Lecture stage. "Your 9-5 doesn't have to be your passion." #roadfromryerson

— Erin MacDonald (@emacyyz)

14. That the world is yours to explore:

The open road beckons. #travel #roadfromryerson #adventure

— Akemi Liyanage (@AkemiLiyanage)

15. And, of course, that you can’t be too hard on yourself:

Failure is never final - keep taking those little steps forward #RoadFromRyerson
