8 Things To Do For Your Last Summer Before College (Part One)

Is college in your future? Though you may want to pack up and leave right now, you shouldn’t forget your last summer at home. From traveling, to preparing for college, to spending every spare minute with friends and family, this summer will be one you look back on forever. How will you spend your last summer before college? Here are eight things you should do before going away to college:

  1. Start an Internship or Get a Job

Colleges and employers are always impressed when a student arrives with some experience already under their belt. An internship or a job in your field of interest will give you an advantage going into college. You’ll also find out whether or not you really like the work you’re going to school for. If you realize a career path you thought you wanted actually isn’t for you, you can switch college majors sooner than later.

  1. Travel

If you’re a nature junkie or want to explore an exciting foreign place, this one’s for you. This summer may be your last chance to go on a road trip with your friends. You could spend time in another country before you’re bogged down by homework and school expenses. You don’t even  have to go far. Try planning a weekend trip with your friends to a national park — or a road trip across Ohio.

  1. Visit Old and New Places

Before you leave your hometown, be sure to eat at your favorite place to eat out. Go to your childhood movie theater or visit your local park. You may miss these nostalgic places once you leave for college. Also, be sure to check out the restaurants and shops in your new college town. Familiarize yourself with the new area so you know the best places to go during your first semester at college.

  1. Take Care of Yourself

Before you pack up, schedule a final check-up with your doctor. You should know if you’re completely healthy before you go away to college. It’s always easier to speak with a doctor you’ve known a long time than to start fresh with a new one. Refill any prescriptions you may have and check your health insurance status. You should also schedule a dentist appointment and an eye exam.

Are you excited for this summer? Read the rest of our eight ways to enjoy your final summer before college — they’re right after Tuesday’s events!

8 Things To Do For Your Last Summer Before College (Part Two)

  1. Learn Life Skills

College pushes you to be an young adult, so you should learn some life skills before you arrive. Here’s some essential things you’re going to need to know once you go away to college:

  • How to Balance a Budget / Checking Account
  • How to Do Your Laundry
  • How to Cook Healthy Meals
  • How to Change a Tire
  • How to Shop for a Week of Groceries
  • How to Drive a Box Truck
  • How to Apply for and Use Credit Cards
  • How to Write a Resume

Ask your parent or guardian about these and other things you want to learn before you go away. You’ll need to do all this for yourself once you live on your own, and you will use these skills for the rest of your life.

  1. Embrace Money-Saving Techniques

Learn how to be a Scrooge when it comes to college. Coupons, student discounts and used textbooks are your friends when you’re trying to save money. You’ll be happy you pinched pennies when you’re sick of ramen noodles. Be sure to fill out any forms you need for financial aid, like FAFSA. Once you have your college finances in order, you’ll feel a little less stressed and more prepared.

  1. Take Pictures

Whether they’re pictures of your graduation party, last sleepover or annoying little sibling, these are the memories you make and can keep forever. Take as many pictures as you can to look back on whenever you miss home. Take your favorite photos from your phone or Facebook and hang them in your dorm room.

  1. Spend Time with Loved Ones

The bittersweet truth is you’ll miss them when you’re gone, and they will miss you even more. Make as much time as you can for your friends, and make even more time for your family. Try eating together, playing board games or sharing your favorite hobby. You’ll make memories to reflect on when you’re older. More importantly, you can enjoy your parents’ homemade dinners before you take off for college!

We wish you the best of luck in college! We hope you make your last summer before college the best one yet. What will you do to enjoy your summer? Which of these ideas will you try? Let us know at [email protected]!
