An article with a similar name was among the most highly read on the Web this week, and with good reason. Graduation is a month away.

Seniors, while you're surely excited about the trips, the parties and the presents, you should be doing a few things before you walk down the aisle to accept that piece of paper next month.

Here's the article http://www.usatodayeducate.com/staging/index.php/career/five-things-every-senior-should-do-before-they-graduate but I'll summarize USA Today's list:

1. Get your transcripts

2. Make sure you have at least one letter of recommendation

3. Pay your library book, textbook or other fines because the school will put a hold on your diploma

4. Visit your on-campus career center

5. Get on twitter to start networking
