College has been a wild ride with ups, downs and everything in between. You’ve got enough stories to tell to last you until your grandkids are ready to listen. Unfortunately, memories fade and as the years go by, you’ll begin to forget the the times you loved so well. So as graduation approaches, we want to share some great ways to keep the memories alive, so that as more time goes by, the memories don’t fade.
So how do you do that? Glad you asked.
Photos forever. Think back over the years and recall the people that made a difference in your life. Professors, friends, near by cafe’s? Maybe a mentor or administrator? Even if you're convinced that you'll stay in touch with these folks for years, take a picture anyway. You can laugh at how young everyone looked when you're old and gray and reminiscing about all the silly things you did in college.
Remember the food. Food makes memories too! Eat the food you love and eat the foods you thought were strange. Take pictures. These are great stories to share.
Share your gratitude. Thank the people who helped pay your way. If anyone including scholarships, your parents, or others helped pay your way through school, make sure to let them know how much you appreciate their support. One suggestion: Include a picture of you in your cap and gown on graduation day in a simple but heartfelt thank-you note.
Honor your favorite professors. Chances are one professor in particular stands out for the influence he or she had on you during your time in school. Tell them "thanks" before you leave. You can thank them in person, write an email, or even leave a small thank-you note (and gift?) for them on graduation day. Then be sure to grab a photo with them, so the memory stays strong.
Capture your college world. It may seem silly now, but won't it be fun to look back at how you looked and what your room/home looked like 5, 10, 20 years from now? Don't let something so special become something easily forgotten!
