The clock is officially ticking towards the day you receive a long-awaited diploma and bid farewell to a place where many friends were made and where memories were formed that will surely last a lifetime. That’s right — it’s your senior year of college. But you’re not done yet!
Graduating college can build a sense of anxiety and excitement all at the same time. Whether you’re worried that you’ll become jobless for the end of eternity post-grad (which is not true, by the way) or you’re so ready to take all those grad pics with your bedazzled cap, breathe in and breathe out those emotions and enjoy what’s left of your college experience — in zodiac style!
Wondering what senior year experience you should add to your bucket list? Think no longer. Here’s a list of a couple of things you should accomplish by the end of senior year of college, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries, you’re all about being creative, punctual, and keeping everything in order. Since planning is your natural talent (and we love that about you!), it’s time for you to start planning out your graduation trip — and no, it’s not too early! After all those years of hard work, you should reward yourself with a much deserved trip, whether it’s with your family or BFFs.
And while you’re at it, how about making a scrapbook in memory of your last year? This will let your imaginative juices flow and make you super motivated to plan out fun stuff to do with your besties.
Taurus, you know that you are a pleasure-seeker at heart and a genius of collecting material goods, which is why in your senior bucket list should include buying university merch. Perhaps a hoodie, a bag, a pen? You decide what will be the memento of those beautiful memories.
Also, since you’re likely all about self-care, your list needs to include reading a book outside on campus — it’s a must, bestie. Just imagine yourself under a shaded tree, sitting on a picnic blanket as you sip on your favorite beverage and pass on the pages of the book of your choice. Wouldn’t that be nice?
Gemini, your endless curiosity and witted mind is key to having a fantastic senior year. To ease that curiosity, for your last year, it is a must to take a class completely outside your major. You of all people will appreciate this experience, and getting out of your comfort zone is so crucial in growing as a person!
And, we all know that you tend to be very flirty and extroverted in nature, so why not talk to your class crush before graduating? A simple “Hey, how’s it going?” will suffice. Good luck (* wink, wink *)!
Cancer, your intuition never fails you and you have your ways of excelling in pretty much everything, which is why for a memorable senior year, consider exploring your college town or city more. You can do a bit of research to see what’s just around the corner, or let your intuition guide you around, who knows what you'll end up finding along the way.
Additionally, since you’re a bit of an overachiever, write down your post-graduation goals. This will help you to excel in the near future, just as you like it.
Oh, passionate Leo. You love to be the center of attention (don’t deny it!), and your light energy is what draws people to you. So, for your senior year, be daring and dye your hair a crazy color before you enter the real world. It will be an attention grabber for sure, but you will rock it as always.
Another experience to add on to your senior year bucket list is go to a college sports event, if you haven’t already. I’m pretty sure the team you’re cheering on will need all that passionate energy you have.
Virgo, you’re efficient and methodical — which will guarantee you success not only in senior year, but in your years to come. Since you are so perceptive and practical, you should definitely use all the student discounts while you still can. Just think about all the awesome benefits you’ll enjoy!
Secondly, you should totally join a student organization or on-campus club — it’s never too late, even though it’s your senior year!
Libra, my friend, you’re all about being social and intellectual. So, for your senior year bucket list, make sure you hit your local college clubs or bars for the last time as a student — safely, OFC!
But don’t forget the important stuff as well, so make sure you also revise your resume and cover letter. This will help you keep it all together as you socialize your way through your last year. It’s the perfect balance!
Ah, the eloquence of a Scorpio. Your resilience and independence are senior year essentials. And for your last year, it would be great to tell your favorite professor how cool they are. Let’s face it, there are some professors that you will never forget from your college years, and while some might have had a negative impact, some were just freaking amazing. So thank them for it!
Also, try doing an internship related to your field of study. With your professional skills, you will naturally succeed at it!
Sagittarius, you are versatile, free-spirited, and you’re always seeking for answers, and you know that the closest way to the truth is by making connections. That being said, for your last year, remember to get yourself out there and attend a campus activity such as a play, sports event, organization activity, and more. Who knows what special connection you can make?
While you’re at it, take a cat nap somewhere on campus — think about it, have you ever done so? Making all those connections must be exhausting so remember to take a break; libraries are the best for winding down.
Capricorn, bestie, your ambition and determined nature will get you places. So, for your senior bucket list, make it a goal to get 100% on an exam or big project. Your hardworking nature will make you easily succeed in doing so.
Also, put that initiative at work by cooking a nice meal in your dorm room — not a pre-made frozen meal from Trader Joe’s. You’ll be going into the real world and you’re gonna have to start eating real food too. Lizzo said it best: Truth hurts.
Aquarius, your kind and progressive soul are valued and you should put these traits into practice in your senior bucket list. For starters, write a letter to your future self. This reflective practice will come natural to your visionary nature and humanitarian heart.
And now that you’re down on writing, you should also write down your favorite senior year memories at the end of the school year. Treasure this last year at heart.
Pisces, you are perhaps the most hardworking sign of them all and the most artistic. Honoring those virtues, for your last year you should definitely decorate your graduation cap — there are so many styles to choose from or you can come up with a decor of your own.
And lastly — just once, of course (I don’t condone playing hookie, I swear) — take the day off and skip one class. You’ve worked yourself too much and a little getaway can be self rewarding and memorable for your last semester.
