Walking in to a university as a freshman can be the most confusing thing ever. Where you are surprised by the way things are done in a university and the independence it grants you, which is scary. But on the other hand, people tell you this is the easier and most enjoyable part of your life and prepares you for the professional world. This does not make sense all at once, but soon enough it will.
While you wait for it to make sense, your degree is already over and the thought of the life to come is a horror. But graduation is still left. Therefore, the graduating batch at any university tries to make the most of their graduation week. Here is how you can make the most out of your graduation week:
1. Designate Days to Activities
Grad weeks are only fun when the entire batch enjoys together. Therefore, to make sure that all of you are on the same page, designate days for every different kind of activity. The activities and days can then include water fight, lazy day, retro day, colors day, comic con, cultural day and so on. So, each day will have its own clothing theme and the graduating batch will be clearly identifiable with their clothes.
2. Get Custom Clothing
One of the best parts about graduation is that you get to show it off to the rest of the junior batches. All those exams, the assignments, the constant pressure and presentation and what not. It definitely is worth showing off. To help you show off your achievements for the past 4 years, you can design your own custom graduation shirts and wear them all week in different color themes and different ways. You can never run out of ideas for your custom clothing and just let all the creativity flow.
3. A Beach Party
Of course, nothing beats a great beach party for the last time with your entire graduating batch because believe it or not, this will be the last time that you can get all of these people together at a party. So, get a beach hut and get all those sunblock tubes ready and hit the beach. But make sure that this trip is exclusively for your own batch so you can celebrate the bond that you established over the last couple of years.
4. Have a Formal Dinner
Of course, nothing beats a beach party, but nothing compares to a formal dinner together with all those beautiful people. At this dinner, give yourself a chance to dress up at the dinner and pull off those dapper looks. Connect with people that you drifted off from over the span of your degree and make promises to connect. Network because there is nothing else that will take you far enough than your network. Make sure that you do not graduate with hard feelings for anyone or leave hard feelings for you in anyone’s heart.
