Some things recent college graduates say they miss about campus life:

* Going to sporting events: "I never liked the cold, but I learned to love the fall, if for no other reason than for football season. And when basketball season starts, forget it," said Jacki Fritz, 22, a New Yorker who went to college in basketball-crazy North Carolina and still watches the games religiously.

* Keg parties: "If only I could find an unlimited flow of beer for $2. It's a cheap, good time doing things you'll never remember with people you'll never forget," said Lindsay Fowlston, who recently graduated from Elizabethtown College, a small liberal arts college in Pennsylvania and lives in New York.

* Laid-back attitudes: "To students, time isn't money," said Angela Yarbrough, who graduated from St. Mary's University in San Antonio last year and still lives in that city.

* Goofy rituals: "Every time I hear Sugar Ray's song 'Every Morning,' I think about this silly dance that my best friend Felicity and I used to do when we were driving around campus," said Cynthia Drake, who lives in Mount Pleasant, Mich., and graduated from Michigan State University in 2001.

* A large pool of potential dates: "At college, it was so easy to meet people -- i.e., men. Now I'm crawling around bars and even doing the online dating thing to find someone to go out with," said Kimberly Eberl, who lives in Chicago and graduated five years ago from Marquette University in Milwaukee.

* Friends: "Now it's a relationship over cell phone and e-mail. But when I see them, we're right back together," said Andy Stein, 26, a University of Texas grad who lives in Chicago.

* The sun: "I figure this winter I will only get three hours of daylight between the time I wake up and the time I get out of work," said Jay Robinson, 23, a recent graduate of the University of Mississippi who lives in Jersey City, N.J.
