Last Semester of College as Told by The Bachelor

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at UNCW chapter.

As the semesters fly by, we are all one semester closer to graduation. For some, this semester is their last (including me) (YIKES!) and it is an incredibly nerve-racking and exciting time. There are serious highs and lows to finishing up college and here are some common thoughts during this time of coping with the thought of change, as told by The Bachelor: 


When your professor brings up life after college and finding jobs:

When someone tells you about their elaborate post-graduate plans and you can’t even decide what to eat for dinner: 

When you skip two out of your *three* classes of the week after telling yourself you would make it to all of them:

Laughing in denial of the fact that you will be a college graduate in less than four months:

Soaking up the last semester full of good times with your college besties:

A peek inside my brain while thinking about graduation:

Celebrating the amazing accomplishments and bright futures of your best friends:

Thinking back on how fast the semesters went by:

It is so easy to be excited and nervous about what the future holds. However, what’s most important is acknowledging everything you have accomplished and overcome to be at this point. The unknown is difficult to grasp but what you DO know is how hard you worked to get here. CELEBRATE THAT!
