Ultimate College Bucket List
Make the most out of your college years with these genius college bucket list ideas!
College is such a fun time. You’re an adult, but not really an adult yet. You have lots of freedom, but still not too many responsibilities. And you’re only this young once!
Creating a bucket list for college is a great way to make the most out of your time before graduating. There are so many opportunities you have as a college student to have incredible new experiences and make lifelong memories. Some of my favorite memories EVER, like studying abroad, getting into my sorority, and landing several dream internships, all happened during college.
I made this list of college-related bucket list ideas to give you some inspiration. I have plenty of other bucket list ideas that you can do during college too. Check out the end of this post for more ideas!
