For most students, college is the beginning of their future. Many students create bucket lists, a number of experiences or achievements they would like to accomplish within their lifetime.
Britani Smith, an education major, said she does have a bucket list in the making. “Go sky diving, jump off a cliff, go scuba diving and fly out of the country are some of the things I have on my list right now,” Smith said.
A bucket list can include multiple goals that are special to the person who created it.
Shelby Hensley, a business major, said she has three goals on her bucket list. “I love animals, and one day I want to live on a wildlife reserve. I would love to help rehabilitate animals in my home,” Hensley said.
“I would also like to live in France for a long period of time and learn French. I think it would be really cool to kind of assimilate and learn about the culture.”
Everyone has different goals; some are more common than others.
Hagen Smith, an architecture major, said he has a lot of traveling on his bucket list. “I really want to move to Colorado and live there, because I think it would be awesome,” Smith said. “Making a bucket list is fun and important because it outlines your goals.”
Haden Higgins, a physician assistant major, said, “I don’t have a physical bucket list, but I always randomly think of things I want to do before I die. A lot of them are travel-related, because there’s so many places I would love to see.”
Higgins discussed why she believes it’s important for people to create a bucket list.
“I think it’s important for people to at least try to think of things for a bucket list, because if you don’t make a list of things you want to accomplish, experience or places you want to visit, then you’re less likely to attempt them, because you haven’t thought about it or planned it,” she said.
