10 Things to Do Before Graduation

I am now a contributing writer for the Syracuse chapter of Public Relations Student Society of America!

Think you’ve done all there is to do at SU? Check out my latest blog post “10 Things to Do Before Graduation” to make sure you’ve hit them all.


It doesn’t matter if you’re graduating in 3 months or 3 years, you should always be filling your time here at SU with new adventures. Take a break from your normal routine and try out some of these things if you haven’t already! Be sure to post pictures and share stories about your experiences on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/suprssa), Twitter (@SUPRSSA) and Instagram.

1.    Get off campus!

Visit picturesque Skaneateles during the winter holidays, go swimming at Green Lakes State Park, hike through the Ithaca gorges, or go whitewater rafting through SU Recreation Services.

2.    Rise to the challenge!

  • Complete the beer tour at Faegan’s and get your name on a plaque.
  • The next day, attempt the “Frittata Challenge” at Mother’s Cupboard and get a free t-shirt.

3.    Study abroad.

Whether it’s across the country or across the world, plan early to travel abroad. SU Abroad offers packages for whole semesters and summer breaks.

4.    Go sledding down the Crouse stairs.

Take a break from studying and relive your childhood!

5.    Try every restaurant on Marshall Street.

Sure Chipotle and Bleu Monkey might be your favorites, but have you ever tried the hot tomato oil at Syra-Juice?

6.    Camp out for a Syracuse basketball game.

It might be cold at first, but seeing Jim Boeheim and the rest of the Orange play up close and personal will warm you right up.

7.    Visit the New York State Fair.

Check the schedule over the summer for tickets to big-name concerts and some unique CNY experiences.

8.    Take a class outside your major.

Who said finance majors couldn’t take horseback riding?

9.    Attend a guest speaker lecture.

Well-known alumni and professionals of all disciplines come speak on campus all the time. Take an hour or two to listen and learn from their experiences.

10. Get an internship!

Actually read all those listservs for once and apply for an internship! Take a chance, and consult career centers on campus if you need advice.

How many have you done?
