True things heard at college.

(edit: this entire thread is made with the utmost of sarcasm in mind. It is a good time. Go to college.)

Alright...with me now being a college student and everything, I figure that it's my duty to warn my fellow Chief Delphites who aren't here yet about the perils of college. I hope that the other college students will help me out with...

TRUE THINGS HEARD AT COLLEGE!

I'll start with two favorites, both heard recently in the hallways of Preston College on the USC campus...

Random student: "DON'T WHACK ME WITH THE SHOE!"

(this second one came just after a fire alarm. Popcorn on the second floor, they tell me. And RTs here at Preston are like RAs elsewhere--just they handle more academicy stuff. And it's a joke...he knew I was on my duff in my room at the time of the fire alarm.)

RT: You pulled the fire alarm!
Me: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! How are you going to prove that?
RT: Manufacture evidence.

C'mon, college students...we've gotta get these high schoolers prepared!

Re: True things heard at college.

I'm sorry bill but it is stuff like that that makes school fun...you will get used to waking up in the middle of the night for fire alarms, random people walking around beating on doors in the middle of the night. College is supposed to be fun and people enjoy things in different ways....just don;t be to judge mental of people and you will be fine


remember this the first time most people have been away from home without a parent figure telling them what to do or have people watching their every move so people are obviously going to have fun .



my recommendation is get off the comp and go have some fun your self..

Re: True things heard at college.

Actual, real quote heard while in college:

"You know, if we shoot the flame thrower out of the back of the car while driving down Main Street at 2:00am, we are probably going to get in a lot of trouble..."
"Only if they catch us - and who is going to chase a car with 20-foot flames coming out the back!"

Re: True things heard at college.

Most the things I see or hear on campus (or atleast the one's I remember), I would not be able to repeat here on CD for obvious reasons.

But I agree with Greg, this is the stuff that makes college fun, so go enjoy it while you can because remember "A bad day at college is always better then a good day at work"

I'm gonna have to +1 ya on that. When I was away at college, they didn't have dorms so we had to get our own apartments, and I wish I could say 1/2 of what was said during that time...

The one thing Im worried about is my dorm being right next to an elevator. Hey if I really wanted to have fun in Boston all I would have to do is hang a Yankees poster out the window (as long as Im not on the first story). Hehehe... I would make all the Red Sox fans irate especially since my dorm is on The Fenway.

Heh. That reminds me of the one bad reason to be off-campus. Campus Police - Campus = Police. I've seen way too many flashing lights around my apartment building (They weren't after me, though!)

"Wow, I didn't expect to see a mob of nekkid people running around for at least a week or so . . . . "

-said by me, watching as a (coed) mob of nekkid folks ran around putting shaving-cream butt-prints on windows (some guys in my dorm got a hose and started spraying the shaving cream off . . . it was funny)

" . . . . on a wednesday?!?!" is another good one.

Re: True things heard at college.

I heard this one a few nights ago...
"All right boys its naked time"

Then last night (this isnt reaally a quote but worth mentioning) I'm walking down the hall and these two guys are standing there naked at the sinks washing themselves with washcloths.
