I am a fourth year university student in Waterloo, Ontario, and I am absolutely terrified of graduating in 2 months. They say that your four years of education flies by, and they weren’t kidding! I remember my first year like it was yesterday. Among my peers, I have heard of a number of different plans for after graduation, but I’m not sure any of them are what I am interested in doing. A number of people are continuing their education by applying to post-graduate college or masters programs. Others are prolonging their undergrad by doing an exchange. Some are in direct streams like accounting, and are starting their careers immediately after graduation. Scarily enough, a great number of people have no plans at all. A lot of these options seem like continuous stabs at finding yourself and what you are interested in – which is what we thought would happen during our undergrad. The people I know that are not grouped in this category are those who have run a College Pro franchise.
