While obtaining my degree, I do not want to just lay back and attend class and that is it. As a current freshman just finishing my second semester, I want to become a part of the university and get involved in some way. While bored and cruising the university website I found a list: 101 Things to Do Before You Graduate. This list pertains to things particularly to IPFW and also general college things.
Here is the link to the PDF file: 101 Things To Do Before You Graduate
I found this super interesting and it got me really excited! I started to think, has anyone done all of these things or most of them? There are some easy tasks to accomplish and some hard. The easy ones may include #19 play pool in the Stomping Grounds, #43 Lay out on a blanket on the lawn and study, and #48 Buy an IPFW sweatshirt, just to name a few. Some of the hard ones may include, #20 Study abroad for a semester, #60 Add to your Co-Curricular Transcript by completing Leadership 101, 102, and 103 and, #94 Partner with a faculty member in an Undergraduate Research project and present your work at a conference. Some of them are ongoing tasks that I can not say I completed until the end of school, such as meeting with a professor at least once each semester and collect as many free t-shirts as you can. I am thinking about doing as many of these items as I can. I will live by the “pictures or it didn’t happen” rule for all of these as best as I can! I think that would be really awesome! What do you think?
There are three things I am considering to do first, just because…:
- Appreciating the low cost of Ramen noodles and macaroni will, in my opinion of completing the task, consist of eating nothing but Ramen and Macaroni for one week!
- Play a game of chess on the giant chessboard outside of Walb Student Union: this will consist of me asking a fellow student I do not know to play me in a game of chess on the big board! (Note: I know how to play, but I am no where near good…)
- Go around to all of the offices to see who has the best candy: just as it states! I will have to make a list of most of the offices first!
