Maybe you graduated college in four years, but for everyone, that is not the case. There are tons of pros and cons about taking an extra year or two to graduate college. But you know what? There are some definite pros of taking an extra year. There are some things at college that no matter how much you think you know about campus life, you just cannot know until you've been here, and have been around the block a few times. These five things are serious advantages of being a super senior.
I know that it sucks that many of your friends have graduated and moved, but the good thing for now is that when everyone wants to plan a reunion odds are they are going to be willing to come to you because you love where it all started.
2. Adult status.
Sure, we are technically “adults” but we aren’t fully submerged into the adult life style. Most people I know in college aren’t working a 9-5 job, can go out when the want and are not really worried too much about the consequences.
3. Dealing with professors.
By now, you really have the swing of this college thing down. You know how to approach your professors in ways that show them you care about the class, causing them to be more willing to help you.
4. Knowing the town.
By now, you know this place like the back of your hand. You could get to the buildings on campus with your eyes closed. You know all the bar specials; you know what restaurants do specials. You are a pro now.
5. No fomo.
You’ve been around too much to get upset. So passing up that whiskey sour to lay in bed and watch Netflix isn’t as difficult anymore.
