The EAA Bucket List: 175 things to do before graduation


With graduation just around the corner, I know what many members of the Class of 2011 are thinking—at least I know what I was thinking when I graduated from the Emory College of Arts and Sciences last year—"If only I had time to …"

When I entered Oxford College in 2006, four years seemed a lifetime away; there was so much I had on my list of things to do. For instance, for as long as I’ve lived in Atlanta, last year was the first time I attended an Atlanta Hawks game.

But often, in between studying for major exams, writing 12-page papers, and fulfilling extracurricular responsibilities, I just wanted to catch some zzz’s. In the end, it’s clear that four years isn’t nearly enough time to take in all that Emory and the greater-Atlanta area offer.

Therefore, in celebration of our 175th anniversary, the Emory Alumni Association (EAA) would like you to compile a list of 175 things for seniors to do before graduation.

Take a moment and think about the things you wanted to cross off your bucket list before graduation. I’ll go first.

No.1: Plan a picnic at Lullwater on a beautiful spring afternoon and learn about the monkeys who used to occupy the space.

Archive your ideas on the official EAA Facebook page.
