10 Things I Would Do Over In College
The week before I graduated college, I was tear-soaked. I felt every emotion a graduate could possibly feel. I was excited for the future, relieved to be done with studying and exams, happy for all the new friends I met, but I actually had a little bit of regret in me, too. There are a lot of things I didn’t get to experience in college. As I was walking around campus taking graduation photos during my last week, I saw many high school seniors on campus for orientation. I thought about how lucky they were. They get to come to this place with thousands of possibilities before them, and I hope they take advantage of some of the opportunities I didn’t.
There are some things I’m glad I didn’t do though. I’m glad I wasn’t unsafe when it came to sex. I’m glad I didn’t major in something I hated. I’m glad I never got arrested (although that would make for a fun college story). But if someone told me I could go back and experience college all over again, these are the things I would do differently.
