Being able to sleep at all hours of the day.


"Sleeping in."

- Kelsey Abkin


"Napping every day."

- Celia Skvaril


"Staying up late playing video games with my friends. Now that I'm working I just can't seem to stay up past 10 anymore."

- noypkamatayan


Learning new things.


"I'm a nerd so probably taking classes about things you enjoy, and learning new things."

- Janaya Wecker


"I miss the challenge of coursework."

- Reddit user


"[I miss] being surrounded by people who valued knowledge and learning."

- not_falling_down


"I miss undergrad a lot. There was more time to take more liberties in what courses I wanted to take; electives were possible."

- Reddit user


Having a defined structure and clear cut tasks.


"Being able to schedule my day where I could sleep late, be finished with classes before 3 pm, take a nap if I wanted, and stay awake as late as I wanted."

- brandmed


'The thing I miss the most is really how 'structured' it was — you have an end goal, you know exactly the steps to take to get there, and you can tell what's next. Now that I'm (allegedly) an adult, it kind of feels like free falling."

- mozzarellapizza


Having a three-month vacation.

"The only part I miss is having long breaks in the summer and at Christmas time."

- justsamthings


Access to free or cheap things just because you're a student.


"My mom buying things."

 - Kelsey Abkin


"Something I reeeaaaalllly miss is how much free stuff I had access to, like counseling and workshops for things like resumes."

- amandapillar


"I never appreciated how much access to free stuff, even just activities, I had [in college]. Every performance was under $6, and most were totally free."

- palacesofparagraphs


Having a built-in social life.


"Seeing friends on a regular basis (literally haven't seen some friends since I graduated last May)."

- Olivia Singh


"I miss having all my friends living so close together. We'd see each other every day. In real life, not so much..."

- Panoramic_Vacuum


"No matter what time of the day or day of the week, someone was always around to hang out or talk to."

- The_Phantom_W


"I miss hanging out with my college friends every day. I also miss not having to go to work every day. Life was more varied back then."

- _JeanGenie_


Feeling like you have a purpose in life.


"Having a sense of direction in my life."

- slxsx


"I miss college because of all the optimism for the future. I used to work so hard on my future, now I'm stuck in a s---y 9 to 5 job, I work very little towards making my dreams come true, and I'm getting stressed because I don't have full control over my life."

- lilipad123


"I miss just having a purpose in life. Up until college society has a purpose for you but after college it just ends and it sucks."

- possum4ever


Access to all the "free" facilities on campus, like libraries, art studios, and the gym, to name a few.


"Gym membership for $90 a semester to a big gym. Art studios that are big and have everything."

- NorthKoreanJesus


"More opportunities to be outside."

- flashjane


Not being considered weird for going out every night.


"Having a good excuse to go out any night of the week."

- Celia Skvaril


Living in the dorms (yes, really).


"I miss living in the dorm. Having a wee private space to myself, but common areas and other people I liked right outside my door was great. I'm sick of this 'drive across town if you want to watch TV with a friend' nonsense."

- localgyro


"I miss having access to countless numbers of closets. I had to buy my own blazer, boots, etc. after I graduated because I couldn't borrow those pieces of clothing from my roommate."

- camchristiney


Basically, everything.


'Things I miss: varied breaks between courses, always having something to be working on, all my friends being in the same place all day, wider range of choice, pizza rolls for three meals a day."

- junjun_pon


"There were a lot of great social groups outside of my academic areas that I was able to join, where I made some of the best friends I've ever had. I miss those people, and I miss the lower level of pressure. I miss my free time being TOTALLY mine. I miss being 22."

- Reddit user
