Default campus university life

YOU KNOW YOU'VE BEEN IN COLLEGE TOO LONG WHEN...

You actually like doing laundry at home.
Two miles is not too far to walk for a party.
You'd rather clean than study.
"Oh man how did it get so late!" comes out of your mouth at least once a night.
Mom's Meatloaf and potatoes become something you desire, not avoid.
Half the time you don't wake up in your own bed and it seems normal.
You schedule your classes around sleep habits and soap operas.
You know the pizza boy by name.
You go to sleep when it's light and get up when it's dark.
You live for getting mail.
Looking out the window is a form of entertainment.
Prank phone calls become funny again.
You start thinking and sounding like your roommate.
Black lights and highlighters are the coolest things on earth.
Rearranging your room is your favorite pastime.
The weekend lasts from Thursday to Sunday.

BEFORE I CAME TO COLLEGE, I WISH I HAD KNOWN...

That it didn't matter how late I scheduled my first class, I'd still sleep through it.
That I could change so much and barely realize it
That you can love a lot of people in a lot of different ways.
No matter how 'cool' you were in high school, no one here cares.
That if you wear polyester everyone will ask why you are so dressed up.
That every clock on campus shows a different time.
That if you were smart in high school, so what? It doesn't matter here.
That I would go to a party the night before a final.
That Chem. Labs/Art studios take up more time than all my other classes put together.
That you can know everything and fail a test.
That you can know nothing and pass a test.
That I could get used to almost anything found out about my roommate.
That most of my education would be obtained outside of class.
That friendship is more than getting drunk together.
That I would be one of those people that my parents warned me about
That Sunday is a figment of the world's imagination.
That Psychology is really Biology. That Biology is really Chemistry, that Chemistry is really Physics and that Physics is really Math.
That my parents would become so much smarter in the last few years.
That it's possible to be alone even when friends surround you.
That friends are what make this place worthwhile!

I am a student of International University Bremen and live on campus. This is a world in its own. What is your experience with universities/colleges/high schools?

If you look at the bottom of the page, in the "Similar Threads" section there's a topic announcing a scholarship for the American Univ. in Bulgaria... that's my alma mater, and yes, i did live on campus as darrel said (if am not mistaken), whoever spent his student years living under the same roof with his parents - missed a lot! (smth like that) and i totally agree.

YOU KNOW YOU'VE BEEN IN COLLEGE TOO LONG WHEN...

>>You actually like doing laundry at home.
well... not really. we had a really cool laundry room (well.. relatively ) in our uni often was a fun experience... (hm.. %) )

>>Two miles is not too far to walk for a party.
no comments *evil grin*

>>You'd rather clean than study.
um... or maybe rather have a cigarette? %)

>>"Oh man how did it get so late!" comes out of your mouth at least once a night.
time is relative... especially before finals week, and especially when there's none left :-/

>>Mom's Meatloaf and potatoes become something you desire, not avoid.
yeeeees precsiousss...

>>Half the time you don't wake up in your own bed and it seems normal.
um... yeah. have to confess... often it's either the keyboard in the labs, or the sofas in the university corridors... %)

>>You schedule your classes around sleep habits and soap operas.
nah... sleeping is rare, soap... well, friends and sex&the city come on DVD now

>>You go to sleep when it's light and get up when it's dark.


>>You live for getting mail.
AAAAAA!! YES!! And all you get is a bloody dessislava mail (our uni server announcement operator (or however they call her) ) and spam on how to enlarge body parts you've never had.. URGH!
*well.. but once you get a REAL one, you end up not replying to it for ages...
**if ever..

>>You start thinking and sounding like your roommate.
hm... rather smth else. but then again you never know!

>>Black lights and highlighters are the coolest things on earth.
no comments on this!!! ask guys who lived next door our room was red and full of insence smoke ) mmm...

>>Rearranging your room is your favorite pastime.
in my case - not so much the room, but walls... and the ceiling %)

>>The weekend lasts from Thursday to Sunday.
YES!!!!!! EXACTLY!! ))

not myself, but yes, it's a trend.. not only go to a party, but get sinfully drunk, and then ace the exam

definitely so

>>That friends are what make this place worthwhile!
yes... ( and then everyone graduates, goes to their own countries... uh..

College experience, especially in an international university, and especially abroad, is something that's impossible to cover it in just one or two posts...
it's a lifetime experience that changes you, brakes you, and mends you at the same time...
