Things I need to do at UVa before I graduate.

In no particular order:

1) Go to Foxfield (as a UVa student).
2) Try to see at least one horse at Foxfield that year.
3) To go trivia night at Mellow Mushroom.
4) Go to class wasted.
5) Drag Bingo!
6) Streak the lawn (!??ahhhh!?!? noooo)
7) Corner Crawl.
8 ) Finish the Corner Crawl with a Gus burger.
Why do most of these things include drinking? Lets get more cultural.
9) Participate more in QuAA and my other group commitments from 2008/2009.
10) Steam tunneling.
11) Paint Beta Bridge with blasphemous French words. I once saw “Ta mère suce des bites en enfer.” Nice.
12) Study in beautiful places like: the dome room, the lawn, McGregor room – FOR THE LAST TIME!
13) Wine tasting at the local wineries.
14) See more exhibitions at the UVa Art Museum (and get free drinks).

What’s on your list? What do you think I should do? I’m up for suggestions!!!

And below is the 2009 check list for graduates. Do we have one for this year?

My university is beautiful!

Being abroad has really made me appreciate how gorgeous my university is. We’ve got amazing, historic gardens with serpentine walls, dogwood trees and magnolia trees bursting into bloom across grounds, and soft lawns to stretch out on in the sunshine.

How I long to sit in one of the rear gardens and pretend that I am totally invisible to everyone.

PS – boy am I incredibly envious of all the alumni who are posting comments about how amazing Easters was. Damnit, bring Easters BACKKK!!!
PSS – to anyone who is curious to know what Easters is, it was a week long party at my school in the spring, incredibly famous throughout the entire east coast, where thousands of people would come to party, get muddy in Madison (Mud) Bowl, and have a good time. It got canceled in the 60s, I believe, because there were just too many people and the whole town was chaos.
