Unfortunately, you won’t be at varsity forever. Your days are numbered and once you leave, you’ll really start to miss it. The real world is nothing like student life and, while you may get sick of it every now and again, you’ll be reminiscing about these days for years to come. It’s important you take advantage of campus life while you have access to it. You don’t want to look back on this time of your life and regret not making the most of it. So, here are some things you should definitely do before you graduate.   Join a society Universities are filled with a variety of societies. There really is something for anyone. Whether you want to jump over jungle gyms with a group of parkour enthusiasts or spend your Thursday nights tasting different wines, you’ll find the right society for you. Joining a society is a great way to meet interesting people and, depending on your choice of activity, learn new skills. As an added bonus, extra-curricular activities look good on your CV. The thing is, you can’t simply sign up for a society and only show up once or twice. You actually have to get involved in what they do.   Take a random class you don’t need Of course, you’ve spent a lot of time deciding what courses to take. At the end of the day, you want your degree and you want to have learned all the necessary skills for the real world. But you shouldn’t just stick to the courses you need. Pick up a random subject because it interests you. It doesn’t have to be a full-year course and it doesn’t have to be something too serious. Of course, choose a first-year course as you don’t want it to take too much time away from your main studies.   Make friends with people from different departments It’s easy to make friends from your department. You take the same classes and you see each other almost every day. And you already have something in common. But you should also make an effort to meet and interact with people studying different courses. For one thing, they’ll never want to discuss that assignment you’ve been dreading and they don’t already know all the interesting things you’re learning. You’ll also learn about their area of study and broaden your mind. There are so many unique people at varsity, so try to meet as many of them as possible. You’re only at varsity for a short period of time (although it can feel a lot longer) and you need to make the most of it.    Image: Pexels
