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.

Tigardville Apartment Oregon

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!

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

4813
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.
