    Bucket list for graduating seniors

    Rebecca Marie Sasnett

    Bela Currier, a communication senior, Camille Carlin, a communication senior and Kayla Landers, a political science senior, play pool at Sky Bar on Thursday. As the semester draws to a close, check off the final items on your UA bucket list — like wearing pajamas during a bar crawl.

    The countdown to graduation has begun, and there are still some things to do before you say goodbye to the UA. Here is a list of the top seven things a graduating senior should do before they leave for “the real world” in May:

    7. Hike Sabino Canyon

    Tucson has one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world, not to mention perfect sunsets. Located about 20 minutes away from campus, the Sabino Canyon trails offer a way for students to get away from the city. The view from the hike is exceptional, and there is no better feeling than being with nature and seeing the beautiful Tucson skyline.

    6. Grab friends and see an impromptu concert at the Rialto Theatre

    Most of you have probably already seen a concert at this exceptional venue, but if not, this is a must. The Rialto Theatre has been a staple in the Tucson community since its opening in 1920. Since then, the venue has hosted many big-name artists like Broken Bells, Beck and Cage The Elephant.

    5. Finish — or start — a beer card at Frog & Firkin

    University staple pub Frog & Firkin offers students a fun way to try all the beers it offers with a beer card. The beer card lists all the beers Frog has, and there are prizes for trying all of them. There is no better time than now to revisit that card and make it to at least 50.

    4. Bar crawl Fourth Avenue in pajamas

    Who wouldn’t want to go on a bar crawl in their pajamas? It’s a combination of a senior’s favorite things: sleeping and drinking. The experience would be a great way to send off graduating friends and would make for a great story to tell future Wildcats.

    3. Have sex in McKale Center

    Having sex in the library has become a cliché, so try somewhere new to make it worth everyone’s while. This bucket list item can be tricky because McKale Center is hard to get into unless you’re a player, manager or coach. But you know how the saying goes: Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

    2. Go skinny dipping in the Student Recreation Center pool

    Everyone has thought about it, but has anyone been brave enough to actually do it? Now is the time to push the limits and live on the edge a bit. With the weather continuing to skyrocket into the 90s, now is the optimal time to skinny dip with friends in the gorgeous pool at the Rec Center.

    1. Take a picture in the fountain in front of Old Main.

    The first and foremost thing to do before graduation was submitted by the outgoing Associated Students of the University of Arizona president, Morgan Abraham. This idea is genius and makes for great pictures, but is currently impossible considering there is construction at Old Main. The idea is nevertheless great and worth the effort, even if it means making a trip back to campus after receiving your diploma.
