SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
Everyone, altogether now like 6th grade chorus class: WOOHOO! Nothing is more liberating than exiting your final college exam or handing in your last academic paper, sprinting around at top speed screaming "It's over, it's over!"
College is easily the epicenter of social advancement: you make countless friends and "acquaintances" (for you promiscuous types) and learn more about yourself than you could have ever fathomed, all while aimlessly drinking and smoking your days and nights away.
Sure, like everyone else I will miss the crazy, brown out Saturday nights full of drinking games, as well as the daily haze of smoke that enveloped my dorm rooms and house off campus, the bikini clad girls suntanning on the Hill and at Puffer's Pond, drunkenly buying three slices of Antonio's pizza when my stomach can only fit one. But what I'll never miss? Buying overpriced textbooks and selling them back for less than half the cost, attending early morning classes where pop quizzes are prevalent and overwhelming, long endless nights in the library trying to desperately finish that mid-term paper on time, mandatory attendance at giant lectures where freshmen girls choose to gab about their late night adventures in Southwest (sorry, your yoga pants/Ugg boots/fake tan orange skin combo is horrendously played out and disgustingly unattractive).
As your cap and gown sits collecting dust since you picked it up at the Annex two weeks ago, stop for a moment and reflect on everything you've experienced these last four (or two for you Comm Coll majors) years. Realize that, good or bad, everything changed and matured you into the person you are today. Thank your parents for graciously paying for your tuition and giving you the freedom of choice with your education, knowing that eighteen or twenty years from now, you will be doing the same with your own children. Don't move on and spoil the privileged knowledge you acquired from your university; embrace it and spread it to your peers. Ghandi said it best: "Be the change you wish to see in the world." Lead by example and help make our future a brighter one, for years and years to come.
