We know how stressful it can be to finish finals, pack, clean, graduate, and say goodbye to all of your friends before you are finally able to leave Rexburg. We decided to make a guide to help your graduation weekend run as smoothly as possible.
Study early and try to get them done as soon as you can. The less you have to worry, the better life is (this applies to all aspects of life). The testing center lines are known to be infamously long during those testing days. A 3+ hour wait? Nobody has time for that. And you really don’t want to take a final the day of your graduation. Get them done!
After living in Rexburg for the past four years, there’s no doubt that you’ve accumulated a lot of stuff. Stuff you don’t even need. Go through your things a few weeks beforehand. Make three distinct piles: Keep, Sell, Donate. There are a lot of Facebook groups you can sell your items on or you can donate them to the Family Crisis Center.
Make sure you have enough boxes to pack all your stuff in, too! You do not want to be almost finished and then run out of boxes. We also recommend that you label your boxes so the stress of moving back home is made easier!
Most apartment complexes require you to clean before you move out. If you don’t have the right cleaning supplies, see if you can rent them from your manager or borrow from friends. Who wants to buy more things when you’re just going to end up packing it away?
It’s about time.
Pay close attention to the schedule to be in the right place at the right time.
Leaving Rexburg is bittersweet. It’s the place where you’ve spent growing up and earning a college degree. You’ve put up with a lot of crazy weather while living here. There’s so many memories, good and bad, that you’ve made. We’re pretty sure you’re not the same person as you were when first came to Rexburg. Hopefully, you’ve become better.
