The bucket list for every UM senior

For most, graduation only happens once. You walk across the stage, shake the president’s hand and receive your diploma in the mail one single time in your life.

To help savor one’s final year as a senior at the university, the Alumni Ambassadors, who are undergraduate liaisons to UM’s Alumni Association, recently released a bucket list of 25 items to complete before graduation this semester.

The list, which will be made accessible via Facebook, features items that the ambassadors consider quintessential components of the UM experience.

“We wanted to work on some things to celebrate senior year since its such an important milestone,” said Kate Lake, adviser to the UM ambassadors. “We thought it would be a neat way to bridge some of those experiences so seniors are getting the most out of their experience before they graduate.”

When a student completes an item on the list, they will have the opportunity to upload photos onto the Facebook group for other students to view.

“It’s a really fun way for people to just get together before people head their separate ways,” said sophomore Adam Locust, vice president of recruitment.

For Immediate Past President Rishika De, the best items are those that involve the Cosford Cinema, Belly Bust and the UC green.

“One of the things the UM Ambassadors are constantly striving for is to increase pride amongst current students,” she said in an e-mail to The Miami Hurricane.

According to De, one of the toughest challenges for seniors is the realization that they are running out of time as an undergraduate.

“[Seniors should] take advantage of the remainder of their time here at the university and in the city,” she said. “Try to get through as many items as they can.”
