Nine Things We Will Miss About College

College really is great, and here are some things that will be missed this summer.

As the school year approaches its end for most college students, it seems there are some things that will actually be missed about the college life. While being home is certainly great, there are some aspects of college life that give it the allure it holds for those of us who are in college. Here are some of the things that will be missed about college life this summer:

1.Your best friends living down the hall from you. One of the best parts of college is living so close to your friends. Want to know what’s going on tonight? Just swing on over to the room down the hallway and you can find out.

2.Everything is within walking distance (for the most part). On smaller campuses, you can get just about anywhere by walking. The bigger schools require buses, but that’s still better than getting in your car and driving for 30 minutes.

3.The easy access to food venues of your choice. Most good college towns have a wide array of places from which to order food. Pizza deliveries at midnight? Yes, please!

4.All the free events. At most colleges and universities, the schools try to offer events to the students for free or at a reduced cost. Stepping out of this world into the one where you have to pay full price is never fun.

5.Going to college sporting events. Little can beat the excitement of college sporting events, whether it be one of the many fall, winter or spring sports.

6.You don’t HAVE to work. While some college students have jobs during the school year, either through the school or off campus, this isn’t always true of everyone. Summer might bring sunshine and days at the lake, but for a great deal of us, it also means getting a job.

7.Hanging out with friends is a lot easier. Even though you hang out with your friends at home on Friday nights, it’s a lot easier to make plans for a fun night when most of you live within walking distance of one another.

8.You don’t have to cook for yourself. Although college food is often looked down upon, at least you don’t actually have to fend for yourself in the kitchen. The meal is all ready for you when you go to eat.

9.The freedom is great. Nothing beats knowing you are responsible for yourself. No one can tell you what to do, so you own the night—every night.
