Well, I stole this from Teresa's blog, but I've bolded the things I've done, and italicized the things Jon's done (also changed/added some pictures).
Courtesy of the BU Line Magazine...see how many of these you've done!! (the ones I have done are in bold) • Change your major at least once. • Get an internship, preferably one that pays at least minimum wage. • Climb the magnolia trees in front of Draper. (no, but I climbed the oaks by the SUB) • Participate in Rush, even if you don't plan on joining a fraternity or sorority. It's a great way to meet people. • Play on an intramural team with a cool name like the Thirsty Camels or Game Over. • Run the Bear Trail in under eighteen minutes. (I think I made it in 20 minutes one time...) • Study abroad for a semester or a summer. • Go to IHOP at 2 a.m. to study or just to hang out with a bunch of friends. • Participate in a volunteer opportunity like Steppin' Out or Habitat for Humanity. • Go to Cameron Park and play in the water park, visit the zoo, and gaze out at the river from Lover's Leap.
• Go to Sing and Pigskin and compare the two. • Don't use Diadeloso as an opportunity to study or sleep. Go have fun--get hypnotized, compete in the tug-o-war contest, or get pulled into a mud puddle tussle. • Schedule a semester where you get a day off every week. OR 2 days off a week is even more awesome, especially while living in NYC. • Celebrate Christmas at Baylor by going to a Chamber Singers concert at Armstrong Browning Library or watching the traditional Christmas tree lighting during Christmas on Fifth Street.
• Chalk the sidewalk. • Pick some cotton--see how many T-shirts you can collect from various organizations. • If any sports team makes it to the Final Four or the NCAA championship, go to the game. Forget about class, papers, or tests--this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. • Enjoy Waco's favorite beverage by going to the Dr Pepper Museum, getting a float at Dr Pepper Hour, or driving to Dublin for a taste of the original. • Climb the rock wall at the Student Life Center. • Get your picture taken while sitting on Judge Baylor's lap or with a Baylor icon like the bear mascots or the current Baylor president. • Go to a professor's house for dinner. • Go to the Church Under the Bridge. • Learn to sail at the Marina and try not to fall in the river. • Play hide-and-go-seek in Burleson Quadrangle. • Get covered with food during Freshman Follies. • Run with the Baylor Line onto the field at a football game. Yell throughout the game, no matter the score. If you can talk the next day, you didn't yell loud enough. • Pull an all-nighter in the library during finals. (Not in the library, and I never hid in the art department, either, but I did stay up working on art projects) • Tailgate before a game either in the Ferrell Center parking lot or at Floyd Casey Stadium's Touchdown Alley. • Read a poem by Robert or Elizabeth Barrett Browning while sitting in the Armstrong Browning Library's Foyer of Meditation. • Learn to two-step at one of Waco's country dance halls, or travel up I-35 to West for some authentic Czech food and fun. • Check out some legendary Waco-area sites--the concrete gorilla on Austin Avenue, the "giant mailbox," the entrance to President Bush's ranch, the witch's grave, or the Branch Davidian compound.
(what, that's not the right gorilla??)
• Wander around Oakwood Cemetery and look for the graves of the Baylor presidents and Texas governors who are buried there. • Find out how many times you can drive around the Circle and survive. • Take a tour of Waco's historic homes. • Get a caffeine buzz at Common Grounds. • Have no absences from class for a whole semester. • Steal a kiss on the Suspension Bridge. • Attend a Baylor play, choir concert, or symphony performance. • Pull pranks on people in the dorms--pour a bucket of cold water on a friend while she's taking a shower or put Saran Wrap over the toilet seats. • Play a lively game of Frisbee in your dorm whenever there's a power failure. • Write a letter to the editor of the Lariat about the latest campus controversy. • Drive to Independence to visit Baylor's original campus. • Have a picnic at dawn on the field by the Marina. Applaud when the sun comes up and then go to class exhausted but exhilarated. • Go to one of Waco's great old restaurants: have a late-night Healthburger and milkshake at Health Camp, enjoy a chicken fried steak and a beverage of your choosing at George's, eat a gut-pak at Vitek's, pick up some old-style barbecue at Jasper's, have a huge early-morning breakfast at Kim's, grab a double lip locker and some oriental fries at Kitok's, get a take-out burger from Cupp's and let the grease soak through the bag. (Thanks John!) • Help freshmen move into Collins Hall and enjoy a father's appreciative sigh of relief that you are the one carrying all of the stuff up the stairs. (Jon helped at Penland) • Go to UnRush and try to figure out which of your friends is a NoZe brother. • Play a round of Frisbee golf or campus golf with a tennis ball and golf club. • Participate in Jell-O fights on Fountain Mall during finals. • Stop and read the plaques on the memorial lampposts dedicated to Baylor alumni who died serving their country. • Buy an official class ring and receive it from Baylor's president at the ring ceremony. • Watch Chamber members clean the Bear Pit. • Participate in Homecoming by helping build the bonfire, guarding the flame, stealing the flame, walking in or riding a float in the parade, or going to Freshman Mass Meeting. • Be a Min-Con leader, big sister or brother, or mentor to a freshman. • Jump in or run through a campus fountain. (I slid down the fountain on a cafeteria tray!) • Play in the snow on the one day of the year (maybe) that it snows, and make a snowman with what little flurries accumulate.
• Study for exams in an unusual place, like a hospital cafeteria • Sit on one of the campus swings with someone and don't talk--it ruins the moment. • Take as many random road trips as possible to nowhere in particular. • Fall in Love.
• Learn more than you ever thought possible. • Find a group of best friends that you will keep for the rest of your life.
Thanks, everyone, for helping make these memories possible! We are so blessed to have friends. :)
