List Rules Ways of living that are not as common after you graduate college

List of things you will miss most after college; or, if you have already graduated, things you miss most about college. The best parts about going to college and reasons why University is the best time of your life. While college is different for everyone, there are some fundamental similarities: everyone is mostly broke, optimistic, open to new experiences and willing to try new things. Many people think that living in a community of people who share the same values and hopes as you is the thing you will miss most about college. Others will mostly miss the hot girls (or guys), parties and opportunities to take a vacation every few months.

What will you miss about college? How do you make the most of your time in college? The answer just may be to realize all of the great things that you have before you graduate and take advantage of them. Does life after college suck? If you keep dwelling on the past, sometimes it can feel that way. But remember once you graduate you still have a lot of learning to do. (You can start with brushing up on these Things You Should Know How to Do Before You Turn 30)
