Things To Do on The Last Day Of College

Education tips

Your last day of college will be filled with a ton of excitement, the reluctance to say goodbye to your friends and the overwhelming urge to run out through the gates. Whether these were your best years or your worst, here are some things you must do on the last day of college.

1. Thank your teachers

It doesn’t matter if you were thick as thieves or mortal enemies – you should definitely thank your teachers on your last day. You can either delve into details about what made their classes stand out or just say a generic “thank you”. That totally depends on your equation with the teacher in question.

2. Say Goodbye to the campus staff

Your college guard probably stopped you a thousand and one times to check your ID and your canteen guy probably served you cold rice more than once. However, you should still say goodbye to them as you leave. Staff members often make up a large part of our campus life and deserve some recognition, even if it’s in the form of a final goodbye! This last day activity might just get your surprisingly teary eyed.

3. Make amends

Was there ever that one person whom you hated on sight and decided to be best enemies forever with? Was there a close friend who broke your heart after a fight? Well, it’s graduation day and, frankly, you guys won’t even remember each other a few months down the line. It’s time to bury the hatchet and move on. If Draco and Harry could do it, so can you.

4. Clear your canteen bill

Don’t be one of those people who leave the college without clearing their canteen bills. Even if it means walking in the heat to the nearest ATM, clear out your account before you leave. Anything else is quite shameful.

5. Plan one last party

Your farewell only happens once and it isn’t necessarily the party that’s thrown on campus for you. Get together with your batch-mates on graduation day and plan one last crazy night in your favourite hangout spots in the city.

End your time at the University with a bang with these things to do on the last day of college. There are so many ways to make your time memorable, however, when it boils down to it, saying goodbye and dotting your i’s at the end of the day is crucial.
