10. Live in a hostel/dorm:
The college experience is somewhat incomplete if you do not manage to live in a dorm/hostel during your college days. Living in groups is always a great idea and it is also a great way to learn how to be on your own. It is a must for any person who chooses a college that is far away from home. Besides the fun, it also teaches responsibility to a lot of people in many different ways.

9. Stay up all night:
All nighters are fairly common for college students. Although a large fraction of the students don’t stay up all night to study, there are occasions when you are indeed forced to deprive yourself of sleep and do some studying. A lot of college goers also sleep late and staying up all night is not a big thing for them. That said, if you are already in college and have not stayed up all night studying then you should get to it as soon as you can.

8. Skip classes:
Although it is risky (and officially not right), everyone skips classes in college. A lot of people skip classes because they are either too tired or they already have plans. Skipping classes is common in many colleges however students also need to remember that skipping too many classes may just lead to the end of the semester.

6. Go on an unplanned trip:
Go unplanned to an unknown location. Since there is a considerable amount of freedom for most people in college this is one thing that everyone must try and do in their lifetime. Traveling in itself is a great activity to be a part of and college life gives you the perfect opportunity to make new friends and travel and see the world.

5. Party like a rock star:
It may only happen once, but you have to do it. Don’t hesitate to get into parties like the rock stars and the celebs by letting loose and forgetting yourself. College is the best time for you to get wild without harming anyone. You must remember that what may be fun to you and your pals may be a threat to others. Enjoy but don’t overstep.

4. Take easy subjects:
Take up easy subjects so that you can cruise through the exams for those subjects. Elective subjects are often meant to expand your reach and your horizon but you can also go in for easy subjects if you want to get your scores up or simply want to waste some time and have some fun. Take up easy subjects so that you will get time to invest in other things.

3. Spend time with friends and family:
Spend lots of time with your old friends and family as only when you are in college do you realize how much you miss the old times. Spend your vacations traveling with your family or friends and take time off to spend some more time with your family especially if you are staying away from home in which case you can also be severely affected by homesickness which is as bad as any sickness can ever get at times.

2. Make loads of new friends:
College life offers a lot of friends for you and you should reap in the benefits by getting to know more people from different parts of the country and the world depending on the college you are in. Right from the very first day of college you get ample opportunities to make new friends and to get to know new people and you should cash in as much as you can as this is a life that will never come back.

1. Be ‘The Graduate’:
This is by far the most important of the things that you should do in your college life. Remember that life is tough and that things are not always fair. You come to college for a purpose and that purpose needs to be fulfilled in any way possible. Once you are a graduate, you feel a sense of belongingness in this competitive world. It prepares you for tomorrow. It is also a proud moment for yourself and your family in ways when you graduate.
