17 Things All Adrian College Students Need To Do Before Graduation

Make your memories at AC the best they can be!

The Collaborative Inc.

You did it! You're graduating! You've made it to the end of your four-, five-, six-, whatever-year journey through college and you're coming out on top!

A lot of people don't make it to this point, so you should celebrate! Yeah, you could go out to the bar with your friends for celebratory drinks but how is that different than any other Thursday, Friday, or Saturday? What you should do is something you've never done before! So to help you figure out what that might be, here is a list of things everyone should do before they graduate college:

Take a picture with Bruiser

It's totally cliche but did you actually go to AC if you don't have a picture with him?

Go on a bar crawl

You can go to Hooligans, The Grasshopper, Fricker's, Buffalo Wild Wings, Cancun, ZZ's, Wow!, Applebee's, The Brick Wall, and all of the other places that serve alcohol. Get a group of your friends together and map out where you're going to go (and find a designated driver!) and hit the town one last time!

Join a new club

I'm a Communication major and for my last semester I joined our math club. Why? I'm honestly not sure but it turned out to be one of the best experiences I've had during my college years. I'm easily the dumbest person in that room every week but I learn a lot and I've met some awesome people.

Go to a show at the planetarium

Dudes. The planetarium is probably the coolest thing about Adrian College and no one even know it exists unless you've had to go there for a class. But the thing is, it's hella cool. Trust me. You can find the show schedule and other information here.

Explore downtown

There are so many cool shops downtown that none of us know even exist. Take an afternoon or a whole day and just walk around with your friends and see what you can find!

Hang out in Caine

Why? Just because. You can pick up on some pretty interesting things when you just sit and observe people. So grab a seat, bring your homework or a book, and settle in.

Sit in on a class

This might be tricky since Adrian is so small but you can still probably find some classes held in the big lecture halls on campus. Then you can just sneak into the back and listen in.

Take a look around that building you've never been in before

If you've never been inside Downs Hall or the Spencer Center for Music before, just do it. Walk in and take a look around. Just don't disturb any classes, obviously.

Try new restaurants

I guarantee you haven't been to every single restaurant in Adrian. Go try something new!

Go to your professors' office hours

Even if you don't need help on an assignment, you can still get to know them. Some of these people have some really interesting stories and I guarantee you won't regret hearing a few of them.

Attend an athletic event

Even if you're a student athlete or if you're crazy busy, spare a couple hours one night and go watch one of the teams you've never seen before. Have you ever even seen a lacrosse game? It's intense.

Go to the mall

... or what's left of it. There's not much in there anymore compared to what it was five years ago, but there are still a few good stores in there!

Take a dip in the fountain behind ATO

This could be extremely fun but do it at your own risk (watch out for Campus Safety officers!).

Ring the bell in front of the library

Again, maybe don't do this while a ton of people are around in case you get in trouble, but it's worth a shot.

Go to one of the school plays or productions

There are some really talented people out there and some of them are definitely at our school. Just imagine how cool it would be to say, "I saw Steve in a school play before they made it on Broadway" or "I got to see Sally before they became a famous actor."

Camp out on the beanbags between Peele and Jones

This could essentially be the same as hanging out in Caine, but you also get to sit in a beanbag on those funky stairs and relax by the bamboo and the seal statue. That's pretty neat, right?

Attend an event on campus

CAN, SGA, and other student organizations put on tons of events every semester for us to go to for free! You're just wasting your money by not going. (And you can win prizes and stuff at a lot of them!)

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
