10 Things To Remember As You Enter Your Last Year Of College

I'm heading into my last year of college, and I can't believe it! Four years later, and I'm one more year left of getting my degrees. It's crazy. I know I'm not the only one that is in the same boat as I am. Here are 10 things to remember as you enter your last year of college.

1. Enjoy your last year


This is your last year of college. Enjoy it. Don't take it for granted. When you are older, and look back at your time in college, what do you want to look back at?

2. Don't stress about grades


Yes, grades are important, but they aren't that important. Just try your best. College is not just about the grades. It's so much more than that.

3. Just be yourself


I know this sounds cliche, but it is so true. Just be yourself because everyone else is already taken. Yes, there will be people who won't like you, but the right people will like you. And you will be so much more happier if you just stop pretending.

4. Go to sporting events


Try to go to at least one sporting game even if it's a little bit. In my opinion, they are a lot of fun,and even more fun with some friends by your side.

5. Go to some events on campus


Whether it's a musical, art show, homecoming, and so on. Attend something. Find something that interest you.

6. Join something


It's never too late to join something. There is so much that is offered on campus between clubs and orgs. There is something for everyone.

7. Enjoy the time that you spend with your friends


Because once you all graduate, you won't be able hang out every day or almost every day like you did during college. You won't get to see them often as you would like post-graduation. So, take advantage of the late night hangouts, studying the university center or library, going to get something eat, and so on. Your friends won't be in a three mile radius of you. So, enjoy it while you can.

8. Try new things


This is your time to try new things. Yes, you might get the chance after graduation, but it won't be the same. During college, you can go do things on a whim, or at least most of the time unlike in post-graduation where you will have a job along with other things and you won't get a chance to do as much as you want to.

9. You may or may not find the love of your life in college


Some find their love of their lives in college. Some don't. That's okay. You are in your early twenties. There is still a lot of time left. Trust me.

10. When you do graduate, remember to take a step back, and look at all you have accomplished


You graduated! Whether it took four, five, six, or eight. Who cares? You got that degree still. That is a major accomplishment. If you were in a sport, band, musical, club, etc... Look at all you accomplishment these past few years. Doesn't it feel good? You got through all the ups and downs of college and life. And you made it!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
