During college, it seems like your twenty-first birthday is the be-all-end-all of college events, and it always seems so close, yet so far away, especially when you turn twenty. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t perfectly legal and exciting things to do before you hit that big kid number. In fact, here are twenty things to do to remind yourself to live in the moment and enjoy your twentieth year, rather than counting down the days until the big two-one.
