Back to School Blues – 10 things I miss about UWSP

As social media exploded this week with back to school pictures, I can’t help but feel jealous and depressed. For first time, I am not returning as a student for which I’ve identified as for the past 22 years of my life! I remember being so excited to graduate and now I just wish I never had. So in honor of “Back to School,” is a shout out to UW-Stevens Point for giving me the best 4 years of my life and providing me with some of these wonderful memories.

Freshmen year

Working at the University Dining Center was the best campus job, especially working in the bakery! Although the hours were early, baking sweet treats and working with my roomie was the best experience.

Where every patch of grass on campus is filled with lazy students debating whether or not to skip class and enjoy the day instead.

If it weren’t for college, I wouldn’t have learned how to longboard!

Freshmen Dorm Room

I admit that after my sophomore year I was so ready to move out of the dorm rooms. But living in the dorms was how I made some of my closest friends, made amazing memories and had the best pillow talks.

Above all, I miss constantly being surrounded by these amazing people who especially helped make the last 4 years of college especially special 🙂 They’re not lying when people say that college is the best years of your lives.
