7 Ways To Celebrate Gradutating
Take A Road Trip With Your Friends – You’ve been bogged down by reports, homework, and finals for months. Now it’s time to celebrate your hard-earned freedom. Grab the friends that were on the front lines with you studying night after sleepless night to cram and get through finals. Jump into the car, pack your favorite bathing suit, and run from your stresses. Get on the road and get gone! Spending hours driving can be incredibly cathartic…. especially after hours cramming. Suggestion: The Rocky Mountains have tons of beautiful national parks, hit up a drive through Utah, Arizona and Nevada.

Try A New Extreme Sport – You’ve pushed yourself during the entirety of your educational journey. Now that you know you can accomplish anything you set your mind to it’s time to challenge yourself in new ways — and not just by trying to find a job! We mean in ways that get your heart pumping and your mind racing: extreme sports. Pushing yourself to face fears and accomplish new heights (literally) is a great motivator and self-esteem booster. By showing yourself what you’re capable of you’re more likely to not be intimidated in the face of set backs. Suggestions: Sky Diving or Scuba Diving.
Catch Some R&R At A New Resort – You deserve some luxury. It’s been weeks of Ramen Noodle and Kool Aid. Dark circles under the eyes and minor hours of sleep. It’s about time for you to sip a tropical drink by the pool all day and do whatever you want — interruption free. Some resorts are all about the part life where as others are oriented around finding a hideout. No matter which one matches your style there will be one that can accommodate you. Whether you want to dance the night away in celebration or sleep for hours on end there are loads of resort options. Suggestions: Cabo San Lucas, Mexico or Golden Buddha, Thailand.
Go On A Trek – Hike to the peek of your success, literally. It’s an obvious but on point metaphor for the journey you just completed. Take a hike up a beautiful mountain to show off what you’ve accomplished in more than one way. There are tons of beautiful mountains that are worth the view. Choose a hike that’s perfect for your skill level. Some are pros and others are just beginners, here are a few we like for any athletic ability. Suggestions: Mount Katahdin, Maine and Whiteface Mountain, New York.
Fitness Retreat – Now that you’ve got your educational sh*t together move onto something that’s probably had to take a huge back seat. Your health regimen! Now is the time to get your body in the shape you’ve always wanted it to be in. Yes, you’ll have a job but it will give you more time to work out than school did. Go to a fitness festival abroad to spike your motivation. Suggestion: Be Fit, London.
A Party With Friends – A classic. Not the most fancy but can turn out to foster some of your favorite memories. Grab a couple mixers, a great playlist, and invite your friends over to your place for a party to celebrate your new found freedom.
