You made it. You’re entering your last semester. You’re about to graduate. These four years flew by. You’re excited about what the future will bring, but also want to make the most out of this time. Here are a few things you can do to make sure you live these last months to the max.

1. Get to Know Everyone
Your school was probably a big place. You probably didn’t get the chance to meet everyone. These last months are the perfect opportunity to talk to that girl in class you always found interesting, or approach that really cool group of friends in the quad. Remember, you’ll all be gone soon.

2. Make Memories
Make sure that you look back at these final weeks fondly. Take a road trip. Go to the beach with your friends. Decide to go to that party where you might not know anyone. It’s the last time you’ll be in this time and place, so make it count.
3. Go to New Places
Have you ever been to that quiet pocket of the library everyone raves about? The hidden coffee shop around the corner? Or the It Spot that you meant to get around to, but never actually did. After graduation, it’s very probable you’ll be moving to a new place, so get to know where you’re at now.
4. Record Your Moments
We’re in 2016. Technology is upon us, so take advantage of that. Take lots of pictures. Record all the videos. Get yourself a polaroid (it’s retro! They’re back!). Don’t let your moments slip away from you. Even if they disappear after 24 hours, it feels good to look back.
5. Soak In the Knowledge
This may be the last time you’ll take classes in certain types of courses. Take it all in. Do the readings, take the tests, soak in all of the knowledge that it’s been given to you. You never know when it might be useful.
6. Don’t Lose Perspective
Yes, a period of your life is ending. But don’t forget that a new one is just beginning. Be nostalgic, but don’t grieve. Enjoy your time, but don’t be reckless. Look fondly at the time gone, but be even more excited for the future.
