5 Things to Do Before You Graduate

If you're about to graduate from the College of Charleston the nostalgia is probably kicking in. You may have notice the graduation stage going up and felt a mixture of excitment and nerves because life is about to change, a lot. Even though you're about to leave this amazing city there's still time to make the most of your time here before you're gone for good. 

1. Make Time For Your Friends

Normally when finals are approaching we spend more time in the library than we do anywhere else. But now it's impotant to make time for your friends. Once you all graduate and move to new cities and find new jobs it'll likely be difficult to keep in touch. Who knows, the next time you get to see all your college friends at once will probably be at one of their weddings. If you've made it this far in your college career, then you can probably balance spending time with your friends and successfully completing your final exams. 

2. Check a Restaurant off Your Bucket List

Living it Charleston you're surrounded by amazing food. Pick a restaurant you've always wanted to try and go with all of your friends. There's constantly new restaurants coming to town and there's now way you've tried them all! So go ahead and splurge this one last time. Forget about those last few cans of chicken noodle soup in your cabinet and treat yo' self. 

3. Go to a Brewery 

Become a craft beer aficionado and branch out from your usual Bud Light. The craft beer industry is growing in Charleston and you might discover your new favorite drink. you'll also feel less confused when looking at a beer menu the next time you go out to eat with your friends. Try a tasting, COAST, Edmund's Oast or Holy City Brewing!

4. Find a Rooftop Bar 

As you already know, Charleston is well known for its amazing scenery. Find a rooftop bar to have drinks with great friends and watch the sunset. Soak in the city views one last time and fully apreciate this amazing city where you got to spend the last four years. 

5. Make One Last Beach Trip 

We've been spoiled these past four years being next to some of the greatest beaches in the country. Most of us won't be able to stay near the beach after graduation so take as many beach trips as you can before you leave. You never know when it might be your last beach trip so make the most of it! Bring your homework to the beach and soak up as much sun as you can before you become a full time adult.
