Every year, seniors exit high school on their way to taking on college and the ‘real world’. A big thought that comes to mind once they are long gone is if they fully experienced all that high school had to offer them. High school is a time in a person’s life that they can never get back. Every student should enjoy it and all it has to offer.
Here is a list of things that all high school students should do before they graduate:
Attend at least one game for every sports team. Every sport is different, so it’s fun to open yourself up to new experiences.
Go to a homecoming dance. Some people may think that dances are cliché or lame, but they can be a lot of fun if you go with a group friends.
Go to a show. Whether it’s a play, musical, band or choral performance you should go see one.
Travel abroad. Whether it’s through the school or not, it’s would be great to have a stamp in your passport before you go to college.
Visit multiple colleges. Every college is different and you never know which visit will lead you to your match.
Eat lunch with new people. Just ask to sit with someone new. Make a new friend!
Show some extravagant school spirit. Join the chest painters; make signs for someone on the team. The team will appreciate it and you’ll get sucked into the hype of the game.
Join a club or team. You can find a new passion, meet new people and learn something new.
Eat lunch outside. There are two patios available for lunch and a grassy field open to students. That’s a new venue and view to enjoy for lunch.
Attend prom. You only get one prom. It’s a night unlike any other and it’s the last dance you’ll go to with all your high school friends.
There is a lot that high school has to offer. Just have to take advantage of everything. These are the “best” years of a teenager’s life, so you might as well live them to the fullest.
