Grad Guide 2015: This is everything you will miss about college life
After four years of the quarter system, life can seem a little drab. Graduating is the perfect way to spice up your schedule and put a little oomph in your routine. But eventually you’ll come to miss all the good times little ol’ Eugene had to offer.
Sitting on the porch at Taylor’s, or Rennie’s, on a sunny day
Honestly, nothing really compares to the feeling of sun on your back and a cool beer in your hand. Plus, nothing like those cheesy bacon tots to bring it full circle.
The freedom of finishing classes early
Most likely, you’ll be working set hours each day. I don’t know about you, but I really enjoy being finished with my classes at noon each day. Then I have the whole day to just haaaang. Or maybe you’re just skipping. Either way.
Being involved in five different extracurriculars at once
Everyone knows that one person who’s involved in a million different activities. But after college there are no more intramural sports, Fraternity and Sorority Life, theater, choir…. The list goes on. You’ve got one job, and that’s probably it.
Quarter beers. Rennie’s trivia. Dollar beers. Drink wheel. Closing Max’s (because that’s every other day of the week).
Because you’re essentially getting a free gym membership for four years… And after the remodel no one is going to complain about that.
It’s like a giant sleepover for four years
Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to work in the same town as your besties, but it’s more likely that you’ll be hundreds of miles apart. Never again will you be able to have an impromptu hang out with some of the people who know you best.
