8 Totally Crazy Last-Minute Items to Cross Off Your bOUcket List

Getting anxious about graduating? Are you worried that you haven’t squeezed all the fun out of your undergraduate experience? Worry no more: we found all the obscure items that every die-hard Bobcat needs to cross off their bOUcket list.

8.) Skip a class:
You’ve spent the last four(ish) years going to every single class that’s ever been on your schedule, so it’s finally time to live on the edge and skip one. After you cross this item off your bucket list, you should head straight to OUPD and turn yourself in.

7.) Go out on a weeknight:
We know the last 16 years of your life have been filled with nothing but dutiful homework five nights a week, but if you’ve made it this far, odds are you can afford to skip just one night. Believe it or not, the bars are actually open during the week, and you can even purchase alcohol there! Be sure to be home by nine, though. Staying out late is a sin.

6.) Get a job:
There’s no better way to stick it to the man than to become a cog in the workforce machine immediately after graduating.

5.) Steal another Athens brick:
Everyone knows that stealing an Athens Block is a rite of passage at OU, but only the truly dedicated will go above and beyond by stealing a second brick. The more bricks you have, the more badass you are. Steal enough to pave your own road. Steal enough to build a house. Steal enough to fill the void in your soul.

4.) Change your major:
If you’re sad about leaving Athens, don’t worry. You can prevent your departure for another four years! For the low cost of lifelong debt, you can stay at OU for as long as you want.

3.) Paint the Civil War monument your favorite color:
One of the coolest things about the Civil War is that it’s cute and trendy, so a timeless OU tradition is to continuously update the Civil War monument on College Green. The simplest way to do this is to paint it your favorite color, but the sky’s the limit. Well, actually the top of the monument is the limit, but there are a lot of things you can do.

2.) Eat a squirrel:
OU’s campus is home to a litany of beautiful, full-bodied squirrels, which are high in protein and, best of all, completely free! Make yourself a tasty pre-graduation snack by catching yourself a thicc squirrel and cooking it up real nice.

1.) Try meth:
If you really want to go out in a blaze of glory (and meth), try this one. It’s basically risk-free.
