GRADUATE SEMESTER EARLY OR GO SPRING SEMESTER ABROAD?

should I graduate a semester early and start working or go a spring semester abroad and take classes, travel Europe, and learn some different cultures?

    If you graduate at an unusual time, you will face less competition for entry-level jobs. However, the latter choice I think offers more rewards ultimately. I've heard about people who have been glad they did such a thing, but I haven't heard about people who regretted doing it. I'm glad I spent a little of my adult life traveling and not ALL of it working.
