Top 10 Things You May Learn While Attending a Public University Whether You Want to or Not

This is a list of some of the more unusual things I learned during my 4 years living in the dorms at a public university. Enjoy.

10. How to live with roommates and floor mates whom, under any other circumstances you would not touch with a 10-foot pole.

9. The 6th floor of a 12 floor building is a completely safe place to be in case of a tornado. In fact, it’s your university approved designated tornado shelter area.

8. How to go from sound asleep to alert and in class in 15 minutes flat.

7. Defensive driving, courtesy of all those who decided to party a little too much.

6. Weekends begin on Thursday. You’re considered a good student if you actually go to class on Friday.

5. How to run down multiple flights of stairs at 3am because someone decided it would be fun to put the TV remote in the microwave.

4. How to get professors off on tangents, in hopes of delaying the test one more day.

3. How to complete a project worth a major portion of your grade while listening to loud music, the TV, screaming, loud talking, and fort building…. simultaneously.

2. The many uses of curse words, and how they can precede almost any adjective to “enhance” its meaning. Who knew they were so versatile?

And the number one thing you may learn while attending a public college, whether you want to or not is...

The amazing capabilities of the human body, and how it can sustain itself on nothing more than pizza, Ramen noodles, and ice cream for indefinite periods of time.

Author's Notes:
There is now a sequel to this list, where I share more of the gems of wisdom I picked up in my 4 years of college.

Ha! I'm so glad I'm going to a community college and don't have to deal with a dorm. Things are crazy enough as it is!!! LOL!

LOL - except for the fact that none of our buildings were more than three stories, I could relate to a lot of those -if not in fact, but in spirit LOL -and I went to a "Christian" college. brought back some fond memories ...

Sounds like you were in training to be a fantastic teacher, if you made it through all that! Great job putting this list together!
