After three great years at school, you’ll begin your senior year and wonder how the time has passed so quickly. With just one more year left of college, making a bucket list of things to accomplish before you graduate is a great way to go out with a bang. At the beginning of the year, gather with your friends and create a list of everything you want to experience one final time in college. Make a single list or break it into categories and check them off as you go!
Your town will have famous local landmarks that are loved by everyone and usually have a signature dish that’s good enough to be featured on Diners Drive Ins and Dives. If you haven’t already frequented these eateries, they can be great additions to your bucket list, and will be an experience that will tie you back to your university community.
There are also likely to be restaurants around that have always interested you, but you haven’t been to yet because they are on the fancier side. These places are perfect for your bucket list as well. Go to dinner to celebrate birthdays or other special occasions, and enjoy the higher end of what your town has to offer.
Your school may have a great performing arts program, well-known a cappella troupe, or other groups on campus that put on shows throughout the school year. Student performances belong on your bucket list because they showcase the talents of your peers and can be a really fun experience. Admission is usually free or only costs a few dollars.
Wherever your school is located, there will be local attractions that you’ll want to visit before you graduate. Berry picking in Michigan, surfing in California, going to the Kentucky derby, and other location-specific activities will create great memories for you and your friends. Adding these experiences to your bucket list will help you have the full college experience expected at your school.
Now that you’re 21 and legal to drink, different bars in town are a great way to pad your bucket list. You can plan a bar crawl, and hit all these spots in a night or a weekend, or intersperse visits throughout the year. College town bars provide a unique experience that you’re sure to miss once you graduate.
