Our 17 Biggest College Regrets

- I wish I had studied abroad. I worked all through school -- not because I had to, but because I felt obligated to because my parents/grandparents were paying all this money forth to educate me. After I graduated, my mom said that I should have done a semester abroad. Whoops. As a result, I did my graduate school abroad instead.
- I wish I had started drinking earlier. I didn't drink until I was 20! I was a really good kid. Not that I'm advocating binge drinking, but I think I let fear guide me in college for a long time, rather than taking the leap with experimenting.
- I wish I had made more inroads to making more friends at my school. Because I went to college in a city where I already had a lot of friends, I didn't feel the need to really push myself tom ake a lot of friends at my college. I already had a group of friends I hung out with all the time. And while I'm grateful for the friendships I made at college, I think I could have invested even more in those relationships.
- I regret not utilizing the resources made available to me at my school more--especially when I moved downtown my senior year, and effectively cut myself from campus life entirely. It was silly to try and move past college so much when I was still in it!
