    Senior Year

    This is my last year in Ames and I can say after a summer internship in the "real world" working for a Fortune 100 company I have really gotten a good perspective on how easy we have it.

    It felt so good last night to hit all the bars and see all the friends I've been missing for the summer.

    Freshmen: cherish it. NEVER LEAVE.

    Re: Senior Year

    I know what you mean, going to school is way easier than working all damn week! I took a year off and then went to a juco while working full time and once I got to ISU I made sure that I took a couple more Financial Aid dollars so I wouldn't have to work, and it's been smooth sailing! Not looking forward to going back to the real world anytime soon...

    Re: Senior Year

    If I had it to do all over I would have stayed and got my masters. It's so hard to even think about going back to school to get it once you start making some money and start a family.

    I'm glad you have a good perscective on you're last year in Ames because so many take it for granted. Cherish it!

    Re: Senior Year

    Oh my god... I miss college. It's great. I miss the Gerdin building, Peoples (RIP), house parties, my porch at 324 Stanton, the first warm day of the spring, the way it gets cold in the fall, the football games... I could go on forever. I love ISU and I loved my time there. It's a great ride... ride it as long as you can.

    Re: Senior Year

    All good posts. Drink as much as possible, then drink some more. It makes no difference what day of the week it is. Drink. Party. Tailgate. Most of us would love to go through our senior year again and party harder because it all changes after that.

    Are you saying I should improve on my GPA? or that I should get a 2.0 the last semester?
