In honor of (FINALLY) graduating with my B.S. in Education today, I thought I would share some things I have learned while earning my undergrad!
- Naps are the best.
- Coffee is pretty good taken black.
- Changing your mind is okay, and encouraged.
- I am a hard-core introvert
- Do what you love
- Anything can go wrong…
- It’s how you handle it that matters.
- College friends are for life.
- Don’t you DARE compare yourself to others.
- God is essential.
- Dorm life is fun
- Dorm life is hard.
- College is NOT like the movies
- Professors are cool
- Study groups help broaden friendship horizons.
- Only join the clubs you REALLY WANT to join
- I am a feminist
- I am not a quitter
- School is hard
- Liberal Arts has the best students and the best profs
- Eating healthy is important, and possible in college
- Your profs are there to challenge your way of thinking… so you can prove why your opinions are right
- The easiest classes allow you to learn the least.
- Cafeteria food is the worst
- You don’t need to “go greek” to make life-long friendships
- Ramen is the worst
- Always ask questions
- The worst anyone can say is “no”
- Always wake-up on the first alarm
- College is worth the struggle.
I learned so much while working for my degree. Many of the lessons have been about life, how to respect others, and how to think through my personal ideas. I learned how to form educated opinions and prove they were right, even in front of a classroom. One of the most important things I learned was that we are all people; despite our religions, races, cultures, or opinions… we are all people.
These 30 things are only a few things I learned, I gained so many new ideas and skills… but these seemed like the best ones to share for now.
What about you? Is there anything you learned during college that was life changing? Be sure to let me know!
Much love. Much grace.
