15 Things You Should Definitely Do During College

You’d agree that the years constituting college are the most fun of your life. All through school, we'd keep waiting for the moment we’d finally enter college, and once we did, we never wanted to get out of it! It’s like hanging out with your buddies day after day. Of course, studies are a minor part of it too, but it’s the fun that gets us going. Apart from graduating, here are 15 things you must do while you're in college.

1. Never save.

Yes, we know you don’t do it anyway. But there are kids out there who believe otherwise. Of course saving is a great habit. But come on, let’s just chill out for a while. You do realize that once you get out of college, that’s what you’re going to be doing all your life - handling finances and trying to figure out ways to save money. So now's your time to blow it all up!

2. Hang out on campus on an off day.

So everyone goes to college on a college day. But have you ever stepped into the campus on an off day? You must. No professors, no staff, no one to disturb you. Of course, you’ll have to sneak in and play hide and seek with security, but it’ll be worth it. You can do all the crazy shit you want with your buddies inside the campus, which you’ll never be able to do on a college day.

3. Go hungover to a class.

Just for experience’s sake! It’ll definitely give you a preview as to what future Mondays of your life will look like, once you get out of college!

4. Because bunking and going for movies is too mainstream, go on an impromptu road trip.

Doesn’t matter if it’s not planned. Doesn’t matter if you are already in a class. Getting out of your campus and going on an impromptu road trip is a foolproof way to have great fun! One hatchback, packed with eight kids, heading out for roadside dhaba chai and Maggi. It’s what you’ll be telling your kids about in the future!

5. It’s about time you face your fears and gain some confidence.

Never participated in school functions or spoken during school assembly? Well, it’s about freakin’ time! College fests are the most fun places you can ever be, and it’s also the best place to showcase your talent. Dance, sing, play sports, do whatever it is that you like, but get out of your comfort zone and face your fears.

6. Tell that person you can’t stand whatever is wrong with them.

This is the time you're learning real world stuff and building mature relationships. At school, you’d simply start kicking and pulling the hair of the person you hated. You can’t do that in college! Talking it out is the best way possible. Either you’ll get rid of them for good, or you might just end up learning the art of resolving issues.

7. And tell that person you’ve been drooling over how you feel.

Yes, it’s not school. It’s action time! You can’t be caught between stare games anymore. Just blurt it out and get it out of your system. Either you win, or you get your heart broken, which is even better. You get to learn how to mend yourself and move on.

8. Step foot into the library, yes!

Enough of boasting about how you’ve never stepped foot in the college library! How about you start boasting about how you have stepped into one? Believe it or not, college libraries can be intriguing places where you can find some amazing knowledge, apart from your course. Tip: In case you're into nerds, this is your stage!

9. Check out the campus gym at least once.

Oh yeah! You know why? You’ll be paying shit loads of money for it after you graduate. No, seriously. 

10. Experiment and figure out your passion.

College is a great time to figure out your passion. We’re not talking singing, dancing here. You know, something more serious? Perhaps it’s entrepreneurship that gets you going, or you get a kick out of tech stuff. It’s stuff like this which will give you a clear sign as to what you'd like to do later in life.

11. Get a permanent back up for all the crazy photo ops and videos you’ve been making on campus.

Need we say more? There’s no limit to the amount of pictures we all take during our college years - in the canteen, sleeping during class, crazy selfies, and what not! And a lot of them just get lost as we grow up. Make it a point to save them on a hard drive or cloud so that you can always access them and embarrass your college buddies later!

12. Step into other classes and make as many friends as you can.

So you're studying economics or English or whatever in college. It won’t harm you to explore around and get to know students in other courses too. It’s surely the best way you can make friends with diverse interests.

13. Go for an off-campus internship.

Yes, internships are an integral part of college curriculum. Whether it’s paid or unpaid, an internship will definitely help you take a glance into work life after college and is also crucial for networking. Internships are the only way you can learn about the big, bad world that awaits you outside college.

14. Cash on every freebie you can lay your hands on.

Gifts, coupons, free concert tickets, play/movie tickets, just grab whatever you can lay your hands on! Because it’s only during college that you have all the time to attend all these gigs, but no money. This is your best way out, really!

15. Don’t fret if you screw up something really bad.

It’s the time to make as many mistakes as you can and screw up bad. Really! There’s no better way of learning than making your own mistakes and getting to know where you went wrong. So no matter how badly you screw up, unless you crushed someone under your car, know that there’s always something positive that you can learn from it and in the end all is well. Let's put it this way: You're expected to screw up.
