101 Things To Do Before You Graduate

This Book is a Must Have!
 I just came across this amazing book called 101 Things To Do Before You Graduate ( #37 is start a website or blog. Check! I’m surprised by how many of them I’ve done naturally by chance, but there are ton more that I still want to do. These are all unconventional things that you normally wouldn’t think about, but in hindsight, they all have a purpose.

How many of you have...

been published (#12)?
led a campus organization (#16)?
contacted 3 successful alumni (#25)?
given a public speech (#33)?
bought your own domain name (#36)?
got paid to do what you love (#68)?
organized a huge event (#85)?
taken a personal development course (#90)? or
done something you knew you would likely get rejected from (#100)?

I’m proud to say that I’ve done almost all of the above. Each one has helped me grow in different ways and I encourage you to challenge yourself and go for the ones that scare you the most. What do you have to lose? College is a safety net. If I never took a risk, you wouldn’t be reading this blog right now. I’m sure you have a message that someone out there needs to hear. If not, then check out this book at and use college to create an amazing life that is worth sharing.

Comment below and add to the list. I would love to hear some of the things you’ve done during college (or after) that helped you and you think others should do as well.
