8 Things You Should Try At Least Once In College

As a senior in college, I have tried many things, some that have worked out and others that have not, so here are some things that I advise future and current college students to test out, just once.

8 Things You Should Try At Least Once In College

Here are eight things I think are important to try out while in college, some easier than others.

1. Sushi burritos.

So you already love sushi, how about a GIANT sushi roll? Thanks to my first-year roommate for convincing me to try one.

2. Cooking a meal from scratch.

The Girl on Bloor

Microwave mac and cheese and ramen are great, cheap, and easy, but trying to cook something from scratch will give you a great sense of accomplishment and a delicious meal all in one!

3. Hosting a get together at your apartment/dorm room.

Doesn't have to be formal or involve drinking; just invite a bunch of friends over to watch a movie, play games, or cook dinner if you have the space!

4. Meal prepping.

Green Healthy Cooking

This doesn't have to be for every week nor does it have to be the same food all the time; wouldn't it be nice to just come home after a long day of classes to dinner already cooked (and just in need of reheating)?

5. Planning an outing with your friends.

Cobbler Life at Concordia College

Again, doesn't have to be complex or expensive, but sometimes it's nice to get off campus and explore the town and surrounding areas with your friends.

6. A class, activity, or club that may be outside your comfort zone.

Graphic Arts

College provides an amazing environment for students to try and experience new things; go take advantage of that!

7. Studying abroad (if possible).

Study Abroad at Mount Aloysius College

I ended up doing a study abroad course my first year of college and it was some of the most fun I have ever had; if you are able to at all, it is SO worth it!

8. Learning what studying habits work for you.

I can't make a listicle about college without mentioning studying... Just find what works for you and helps you remember the information!

No matter what you end up participating in, you'll enjoy one or more of these things to try in college!

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.

1952

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
