8 Things College Students Miss The Most About Grade School

Don't you wish you could go back to the good ole' days?

8 Things College Students Miss The Most About Grade School

Are you ever sitting in your 2 o'clock class when you catch yourself daydreaming about when times were simpler? Here is a list of the things that college students all miss the most about elementary school.

1. Nap Time

What else even comes close to deserving the number one spot?

2. Class Parties

Valentine's Day was something to look forward to instead of loathing. Getting a Valentine's Day card from your crush meant the world to you, even though we all knew that he gave them to everyone. This was basically the equivalent of a subtweet on Twitter.

3. Your parents driving you everywhere

No matter how mad we made our parents, they still had to drive us to school every morning. They definitely made sure to get their payback on us for this one. If only I had a dollar for all of the random grocery store runs I had to make in high school for my parents.

4. Snack Time

It seemed like the teachers could get us to do anything if they offered us snacks as a reward.

5. Recess

Playing foursquare, dominating at kickball and swinging on the swing set were all part of our daily routine. Rainy days were the worst.

6. Movie Days

The best days were the days when the teacher decided to play a movie instead of teaching.

7.Getting out of class

Feeling like you were on an episode of the Magic School Bus was the best.

8. Passing Notes

Way before cellphones, writing notes was the only way to communicate during your long days at school.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
