The Things You Learn Outside of Class

College teaches you a lot of things. Here at Mis it seems overwhelming the amount of things you learn in the classroom, let alone outside of the classroom. You’ve got all of the clubs and activities on campus, your gen ed classes, all of the Sisters of Mercy stuff that’s drilled into your brain! You’ve learned a lot that has helped you academically, physically, emotionally, spiritually and a lot of it you learned outside of class! Think about it; you’re on your own for the first time and you’re still alive!! That deserves an A+ right there! So here’s a list (with helpful GIFs included!) of some things that you might have already learned or will learn in the near future outside of the classroom!

  1. How to make friends, that last.
  2. And that some friendships don’t last
  3. How to interact with and respect people that are different than you.
  4. You learned how to do your laundry!
  5. And how to cook (with a microwave of course)
  6. That it’s okay to go a little crazy with the eating every now and then

  15. How to deal with living in close quarters with another human being for the good
  16. And the bad

Hey I'm Allison or otherwise known as Alligator. I am currently a senior (yay grad school!) at MU studying speech-language pathology. I love MU because it reminds me of my high school; it's a tight-knit community where people hold doors for you no matter how far away you are. My favorite time on campus is in the fall, it is absolutely gorgeous. When I'm not studying I'm either reading or watching Netflix (yes I am a junkie). I also really love food, so cooking and baking are fun too!
