7 Must-do Things for Your Senior Year Bucket List ...

By Kelly

If you're in your final year, now is the time to turn your attention to creating the perfect senior year bucket list. These are the things that you want to accomplish before you graduate and will help you live your senior year to the fullest. So take a break from the job hunt and get your head out of your textbook to add these must do items to your senior year bucket list.

1 Pull an All Nighter That Isn’t for Studying

Pull an All Nighter That Isn’t for StudyingAs a senior, you have probably pulled your handful of all nighters full of reading, writing papers and cramming for tests and they are far from fun. But by adding an all-nighter that isn't for studying to your senior year bucket list, you can encourage yourself to spend hours with your friends, partying, dancing, and having adventures. You might end up with some of the most memorable experiences of your college years.

2 Become BFF with a Teacher

Become BFF with a TeacherTeachers are a great source of knowledge and help in college, but they can also make a great friend. They have been where you are, they have faced graduation and know how to deal with it, and they are full of wisdom. So many students have this misconception that teachers are boring and uninteresting, but that is far from the truth. Teachers have so many stories to tell, and you probably won’t get to hear them until you befriend them. So stop by their office just to chat, or even go to a bar you know that teachers frequent. It will pay off in the end.

3 Attend a Lesser Known Sporting Event

Attend a Lesser Known Sporting EventMost schools have one or two sports they are known for. For example, my school is huge about football and volleyball. But have you ever attended a different event like fencing or gymnastics? Most schools have tons of lesser known sports that are super interesting to watch but not many people attend them. Get a group of your friends and cheer on your school with all of your might. The team will really appreciate it and you will have a lasting memory.

4 Become a Mentor for a Freshman

Become a Mentor for a FreshmanYou know how nerve-wracking being a freshman can be, so why not ease the process for a few of them. Nothing is quite as satisfying as being a role model to a younger student. You can ensure they don’t make some of the mistakes you did, and tell them what to do to make the most of their 4 years at school. And if you love your school as much as I love mine, you will want to make sure they leave with the same passion for college.

5 Go Streaking

Go StreakingSome schools have a traditional streaking event, some don’t. But regardless of which one your school is, streaking should be on your senior year bucket list. This is your last year to make an impression on your school. Gather up a few friends (who you don’t mind seeing you naked) and go for a light jog around campus at night. You will feel totally free and even if you get caught, campus police usually doesn’t care about what you are doing if you are a senior.

6 Go out Every Night for a Week

Go out Every Night for a WeekFor some people, this doesn’t need to be on their senior year bucket list because this is a normal week for them. For other students, the thought of skipping out on work to party could lead to a panic attack. But the relief you feel from throwing your responsibilities to the wind and just having fun is what senior year is all about. This is your last year on campus; don’t spend it curled up in the library all year. I am not saying schoolwork isn’t important, but so is enjoying yourself every once and a while.

7 Hook up Somewhere on Campus

Hook up Somewhere on CampusThere is nothing like the thrill of hooking up somewhere you’re not supposed. The thought of getting caught at any time gives you such a rush. It could be in the library, by your school’s park, or even in a classroom after hours. You might not be leaving your mark for the school to see, you will always smile when you think of your dirty little campus spot.

Senior year can be a mix of emotions. You are excited to start the next chapter of your life but you are leaving your home for the past few years. Make the most of your last year by creating your perfect senior year bucket list. What did you think of these things to go on your senior bucket list? What other things are on your senior year bucket list? Why do you think it is important to have a senior year bucket list?
