With only weeks before graduation, we figured it was about time we made a bucket list of things to do before you graduate. Seniors – let’s see how many of these you can check off and freshmen, sophomores and juniors – shoot for all 10.

  1. Sit in the student section at a football game. It’s one thing to experience a football game as an underclassman, but once you get to your senior year, it’s almost mandatory that you go because you get seniority over the front of the bleachers. Joining together for the “We Ready” and “I Believe” chants is one tradition no Raider should miss.
  2. Go to prom. You only get two chances to attend prom so why not make the best of it both years. Prom is a great opportunity to get dressed up super fancy, and dance the night away with those you enjoy.
  3. Buy a yearbook. One of the best things at the end of the year is to flip through the yearbook and relive all the crazy and fun things that happened. Plus, years down the road when everybody becomes somebody, you’re going to want to be able to see where it all got started.
  4. Be on RNN. Okay, you may not like this one, but you have to be on RNN at least once before you leave high school. And you know you enjoy it when you tease your friends for being the Random Raider.
  5. Go to a pep rally. Don’t be lame and go to the anti-pep rally every year. It’s a good time to scream and shout, root for your school and support the cheer, dance, band and athletic teams.
  6. Go to a spring sporting event. Too often spring sports don’t get the attention they deserve. So, grab some friends and go support the varsity girls at their basketball game, watch the wrestling team on Senior Night and head to the softball field to watch the girls bat their way into playoffs again.
  7. Participate in spirit days. There’s nothing more fun than wearing animal print, dressing up with a twin or showing off your Raider gear during Homecoming Week. You’ll get some great pictures and you may even end up in the yearbook.
  8. Go to a theatre production. Speaking of supporting your fellow Raiders, everyone should attend at least one fall play or spring musical and see just how talented your classmates are.
  9. Go to a Royals show. Not only do the Royals perform at football games, but they also put on their own production twice a year; iDance with the other LISD schools in the fall and their ever so popular Royal Revue in the spring.
  10. Be in a club. To get the whole high school experience and make friends, join a club. With more than 40 clubs and organizations, there’s bound to be one that you fit into and as a bonus you’ll make new friends.
