Welcome! Here are a few interesting stories and jokes from real students! 45 Cool Things to do in a College Dorm Shower Stall 1. Enter the stall. Shower for about 3 minutes, then scream really loudly, exclaiming, "I didn't know I had one of THOSE!" 2. Enter the stall, fully clothed. Do not undress and make sure you clothes get all wet & soapy. Complain when leaving the bathroom that your shirt tends to bleed all over. 3. Ask Scottie to beam you up. 4. Enter the stall, undress and then re-dress up as Superman. Leap out of the stall, vengefully vow to stop Lex Luthor's evil plot, then run full force into the wall. Stand up, shake your head, and proceed to take your shower. 5. Bring a bottle of fake blood or ketchup into the shower with you. Exclaim "Ow, you know, it really hurts when you pop one of those." Then let the blood/ketchup seep down the drain for all to see. 6. Look over the edge to the person showering next to you, giggle, and then return to your side, whistling the tune "It's a Small World After All." 7. Bring in a rubber chicken. Get it all soapy, then toss in into the next stall. Demand that the person in that stall returns it to you, or you will cast a voodoo curse on them. The next day, hang the chicken from the bathroom lighting fixtures by a noose and stick numerous pins and forks in it. 8. Have a seizure. Bang against the walls of the stall really hard. Try to knock them down. If anyone later asks if you are okay, just say that you had some Mexican Jumping Fava Beans and they were reacting negatively with your stomach. 9. Bring a chunk of sodium metal. Leave it in the stall for the next person showering. 10. Stand in the bathroom, waiting for would-be shower-goers. When they come in, tell them "Not to do it" and ask them "Not to give in to sin". Wail mournfully when they step into the shower. 11. Initiate a war with the person in the stall next to you. Use the residue water on the floor as your battle medium, and float litte battleships over to their side. If they kick them back or throw them over the edge, exclaim that you didn't know they had the power of God and sheepishly mumble prayers for the duration of your shower. 12. Bring in a fake finger. Float it down the drainage "ditch". Ask if someone would be so kind as to return it to you. If no one does, tell them that the finger has been sacrificed to Satan and that the shower stalls are now possessed. Hang Halloween decorations and crepe-paper ghosts from them the next day. 13. Bang your head against the stall wall, shouting "Redrum! Redrum!" in your best groggy voice. 14. Bring a Yoo-Hoo to the shower with you. Complain about a stomachache, then moan "Ohhhh, um, uh-oh", and pour the Yoo-Hoo down the drain "ditch" for all to see. 15. Before you turn the shower on, make a noise like you are charging up a proton pack from Ghostbusters. Before you turn it off, ask Egon to set the trap up for you. 16. Bring a balloon into the shower. Make the balloon squeak for the duration of your bathing experience. Then pop it, and fall to the ground. 17. Bring dead fish into the shower with you. Let them float down the drainage "ditch", complaining about the quality of water these days. 18. Hang up the names of different farm animals in the stalls. Have everyone entering the stalls join you in a rendition of "Old McDonald Had A Farm", making the sound of their animal in the stall. 19. Turn the stall into a shrine for a pagan god. Call him Weeshy. Insist that anyone who uses that stall must tithe to receive his benefence and glory. If they don't tithe, avoid them for the rest of your life. 20. Take your shower like normal, and then begin screaming that the Communists are taking over. Bang battle sounds, including bombs, bazookas, and tanks. Towards the end, wearily declared victory. Leave wounded. 21. Levitate. If anyone complains, tell them that they are breaking your concentration and just because they have bad karma doesn't give them the right to spread it. 22. Blow bubbles. Exclaim that you are dissolving. 23. Bring in a bucket, fill it with water, and float a bar of soap in it. Charge a fee for people to see the Wicked Witch of the West bathing nude. Threaten anyone who laughs at you with flying monkeys. 24. Start singing Pavarotti really loud. In the middle, stop, stutter for a second, and then exclaim "Ohmigosh...do you know what these words REALLY mean?" 25. Walk in a man. Come out a woman. Complain that there are men in the bathroom. 26. Suck on the faucet head until you fill up with water. Complain that they Seven Chinese Brothers get no respect OR pretend to be a fountain. 27. Wet your head, and then sneak into a toilet stall. Flush the bowl and wait a minute. Walk out of the stall lurching, complaining about how dizzy you are. 28. Buy a bunch of those tiny animal-pills that expand into full, spongy shape when they get wet. Bring them into the shower and spill them into the ditch. Ask somebody for your pills back, and when they hand little animals, scream, slap them, and run away. 29. Make your best Psycho noise (reeEENT reeEENT...) 30. Try to get everyone in the other stalls to sing in four-part harmony with you. If this actually works, change your voice part every three measures. 31. Role-play with the guy in the stall next to you. If he claims to have rolled a natural 20, call him a liar and fire your bottle of shampoo on to his side. Complain about oily hair for the rest of the day. 32. Become a shower-pirate. Loot other stalls of soap, Oxy pads, and Q-Tips. Bury them under the tile floor. Fire cannons at people using the toilet stalls. 33. Scream out that your washcloth is attacking you, then fall to the floor and cover your face with it. Lie there for 2 hours. Three days later, have a little washcloth pop out of your stomach and terrorize the school. 34. Bring SCUBA gear into the shower with you. Talk to Cousteau. Upon leaving, tell everyone that the Titanic was actually torpedoed by the Germans. Be cocky. 35. Hum for a couple of moments, stop, make a "Mmm!" sound, and then announce to everyone that the mildew on the shower walls kind of tastes like head cheese. 36. Coat the floor in a fine layer of quick-drying cement. 37. Steal everyone's clothes from the changing compartment. Go into their rooms and take all their other clothes. Donate to a needy organization. 38. Hang "Marisa Cevasco steals Homecoming Queen Crown" signs in all the stalls. If anyone asks who Marisa Cevasco is, call them ignorant and ignore them for the rest of your life. 39. Bring in Sesame Street bath books. Read them aloud. Giggle everytime Bert walks in on Ernie bathing. 40. Stare at people's feet as they bathe. If they do not wash their feet, tell them so. If this happens a second time, steal their shoes and tell them that they left on strike. If they do wash their feet and fall down while doing it, laugh hysterically. 41. Stand outside the shower curtain, raise a harpoon, and shout "I'm coming for you, Moby!". Run in and do battle with the faucet-head. Walk out a pegleg. 42. Charge a toll for people wanting to use the shower. If they complain, light them on fire. Then they'll pay. 43. Hook up your shower-heads to a local dairy-farm. If anyone complains about the washing facilities, tell them that they should be thankful for a wholesome, pasturized, vitamins A & D fortified wash. Call them ingrates. 44. Put an electric eel in the water heater. Laugh everytime someone gets a shock. Call them glowworms. 45. Set up a slip and slide into the shower. Hurt yourself everytime you bump into the wall. Complain that your favorite physics professor shuts gravity off at the wrong times always. A Jacksonville University Senior Wrote: The following story happened about nine years ago when I was a freshman at Jacksonville State University. A close friend of mine suggested that I submit this story to your website because, in her words, “the whole world needs to hear it.” It was a Friday night at the home of the fighting Gamecocks and the usual funneling beer in the bathtub of our dorm room and packing our bags of Boone’s Farm to take to our favorite fraternity house started the night. We made our way to the best fraternity house at Jax State--it was off campus and was set up perfectly for live bands. Watching bands at the house was a weekly occurrence and I had become old hand at our procedures. Procedure was as follows: 1) Meet and greet all people at least one hour before the band started 2) Pour a large glass of Boone’s Farm (usually one whole bottle) and 3) Climb into our favorite deep 12 foot tall window to watch the band. These windows were deep enough to hold four of my sorority sisters comfortably, leaving room for dancing and general shaking of the butts. I was the first one to attempt to climb into the window that night, as always because I was the tallest. So, I stepped on the black box next to the windowsill (with 32-ounce cup in hand) with all intentions of getting into the window. What I didn’t pay attention to, however, was the fact that the box I was stepping on was an amplifier resting upon wheels. With my drink in my right hand, I stepped with my right foot, placing all of my weight onto the amplifier, sending my feet straight up into the air and my head pointed straight at the hardwood floor below. Panicking, I stuck out my left arm to attempt to break my fall from about three feet in the air. Needless to say, it didn’t help and I came crashing to the ground -- oh but don’t worry my head didn’t hit the floor because the butt pocket of my jeans got caught on the handle of the amplifier. I was basically left hanging upside down. My first thought was joy at the fact that I didn’t spill but a little but of my frosty beverage. Then came the happiness shared by the 200 other people at the party who were sure I had broken my neck. The fraternity boys quickly brought me into the kitchen to make sure I was ok (and that I wasn’t going to sue them). They attempted to give me ice for my bleeding head and my wrist that was swelling so bad that I shouldn’t have been able to move it. I couldn’t have cared less about the Ziploc bag of ice so they proceeded to attach it to my wrist with duct tape. The ice on my head did not get taped, thank God. I just kept sticking my cold glass there all night. No, I did not leave the party. It was the weekend before Spring Break and there was too much going on. So, with my bleeding head, messed-up wrist and who knows what else, I continued the night dancing to such classics as “Rump Shaker” and “Gin & Juice” (Old School). I woke up the next morning in severe pain, having no idea how me (or my car) made it home. I looked at my pillowcase and saw it stained with blood. I looked at my left wrist with a Ziploc bag duct taped to it. And a new development was the fact that I could barely move my left leg. Not remembering anything that happened -- all I knew was that I needed to go the emergency room. I called my brother who was a senior at the time to come get me and take me because there was no way I could drive myself. He had to be escorted upstairs into my all girls dorm to assist me in getting undressed from the blood-stained clothes and into some fresh ones. We got to the E.R. and met an awesome doctor who joked about breakdancing being out of style... and he began to fix me up. They ran a CT Scan on my head; x-rays on my back and butt and spent almost an hour figuring out how to get the duct tape off of my arm without tearing off too many layers of skin. I left the E.R. roughly six hours later with a concussion; a cast on my broken left wrist, a broken butt bone and a hangover the size of Texas. Don’t worry -- that didn’t stop me from having a blast the next week in Daytona on Spring Break! A University Marching Band Member Wrote: I was completely trashed, still nauseated, and unbelievably emotionalI will never forget the night of November 10, 2000. It was a night of many firsts for me. My friend, Cheryl, and I were going to a kegger at our friends' (Dave, Sam, and Brendan) apartment. We arrived there around 11 and the party was going full blast. Sam mixed Cheryl and me pretty potent rum and cokes, which we drained in about 10 minutes. We looked in their fridge and discovered two trays of Jell-O shots, so of course we helped ourselves to one. Then, this guy Andrew started playing Circle of Death and since Cheryl and I had never played before we eagerly jumped at the chance. We played the game for about 30 minutes during which time I downed two cups of beer. I decided it was time for another Jell-O shot. That's when someone brought a beer bong. Now, I had seen my brother do this before, but I had never tried it, so naturally, I wanted to experience another "first" that night. Since I was a "newbie," they only put a half a can of beer in (or so they said). I sucked it down pretty quick. I didn't know if I had really done a good job or not, but everyone told me how amazed they were at my "natural ability." Feeling pretty good, I went back to the drinking game where I drank at least another cup and a half of beer in about 10 minutes. At that point, I decided I wanted to beer bong again, but I wanted a full can. No one objected to this and I chugged it down. I was going to join the game again, but I realized I had to break the seal. So I made my way to their (only) bathroom and finally got in after waiting in line for a few minutes. After I got out, I ran into Dave, who was on his way to go use the bathroom. It was at about that point when I started to feel pretty sick. But I didn't want to ralph because I had never gotten sick from drinking before and that was one "first" I didn't want to experience that night. Unfortunately, my stomach had other plans. I realized I had better face the music and find my way to the toilet pretty soon. But Dave was still in there, so I leaned against the wall thinking I could hold it until he got out. Unfortunately, my brain was more patient than my stomach. I knew I was going to be tasting my dinner soon, whether I made it to the toilet or not. Since I was near the kitchen, I ran to the sink and let it loose. By the time I finished washing my vomit down the drain, I noticed there was a crowd around me asking if I was ok, and at that point, I realized that I felt much better. So I went back to the circle of death game. I think I drank another half cup of beer, but I don't really remember. The next thing I knew, I was praying to the porcelain god--at least I made it to the bathroom that time. After that, Cheryl decided it was time for me to go home. This was a wise choice considering it was 4 am, I was completely trashed, still nauseated, and by that point, unbelievably emotional. I actually started crying and apologizing profusely to Sam and Dave for puking in their sink, and to Brendan for spilling beer on his pants. Somehow Cheryl got me home and into my PJ's. I don't remember how I got home, how I got in my room, or how I got in my bed. I just know passing out at that point felt really good. The worst part was I had to get up at 9 am the next morning for marching band practice. There is nothing worse than marching around a stadium in the freezing cold at 10 am while trying to twirl your flag and keep from puking. YOU KNOW YOU'VE BEEN IN COLLEGE TOO LONG WHEN... * You consider McDonald's "real food." * Two miles is not too far to walk for a party. * You wear dirty socks three times in a row and think nothing of it. * Prank phone calls become funny again. * The weekend lasts from Thursday to Sunday. (or Wednesday morning to Tuesday night)WAYS TO IRRITATE YOUR PROFESSOR * Leave permanent markers by the dry-erase board. * Ask whether the first chapter will be on the test. If the professor says no, rip the pages out of your textbook. * Hold up a piece of paper that says in large letters "CHECK YOUR FLY". (at least for the Male profs) * Address the professor as "your excellency". * When the professor turns on his laser pointer, scream "AAAGH! MY EYES!" * Relive your Junior High days by leaving chalk stuffed in the chalkboard erasers. * Sit in the front, sniff suspiciously, and ask the professor if he's been drinking. * Correct the professor at least ten times on the pronunciation of your name, even it's Smith. Claim that the i is silent. * Sit in the front row reading the professor's graduate thesis and snickering. * Feign an unintelligible accent and repeatedly ask, "Vet ozzle haffen dee henvay?" Become agitated when the professor can't understand you. * Wink at the professor every few minutes. (Hey you might even get a date if he/she is cute) * Every few minutes, take a sheet of notebook paper, write "Signup Sheet #5" at the top, and start passing it around the room. * Start a "wave" in a large lecture hall. A letter from a college freshmen to her parents category/1.67816_1 Rating: PG-13 A college freshmen once wrote the following to her parents- Dear Mom and Dad, Just thought I'd drop you a note to clue you in on my plans. I've fallen in love with a guy named Buck. He quit high school between his sophomore and junior year to travel with his motorcycle gang. He was married at 18 and had two sons. About a year ago he got a divorce. We've been going steady for two months now and plan to get married in the fall. He thinks he should be able to find a job by then. Until then, I've decided to move into his apartment. I think I might be pregnant. At any rate, I dropped out of school last week. I was just bored with the whole thing. Maybe I'll finish college sometime in the future. (and then on the next page she continued) Mom and Dad, everything I've written so far in this letter is false. NONE OF IT IS TRUE. But Mom and Dad, it is true that I got a C in French and flunked my math test. And it is true that I'm overdrawn and need more money for my tuition payments.

A Day in the Life of a College Student Up too late the night before. Want to stay in bed some more. Searching for a matching sock in time to make my eight o'clock. Sprinting all the way to class. Slowly running out of gas. Walking in the pouring rain. A thunderstorm's inside my brain. Soaking wet, I make it in. Professor asks me where I've been. I try to think up some excuse. "It's chronic eight o'clock abuse!" Writing till my hand falls off. Don't have time to even cough. Can't get breakfast off my mind. Now I'm half-a-page behind! Man, this lecture's really boring. Is it me that I hear snoring? No, it's just the ocean breeze. I'm floating on a piece of cheese sailing off to la-la land, while jamming to a reggae band. And as I lay me down to rest, please let me dream I pass my test. And if I don't, for goodness sake, just let me sleep till summer break! College habits you can bring home... 1.

For every hour you spend in class, you will probably need to study two hours outside class. Studying for each subject should be at the same time, same place, if possible. Study includes more than just doing your homework. You will need to go over your notes from by class, labeling, editing, and making sure you understand them. Study your syllabus daily to see where you are going and where you have been. Be sure to do reading assignments. (Don't put them off just because there's not a written assignment.) Read ahead whenever possible. Prepare for each class as if there will be a pop quiz. list end List of 1 items • 4. Establish a place to study. Your place should have a desk, comfortable chair, good lighting, all the supplies you need, etc., and of course, should be as free of distractions as possible. It should not be a place where you routinely do other things. It should your study place. list end List of 1 items • 5. Do as much of your studying in the daytime as you can.

Find out about and use labs, tutors, videos, computer programs, and alternate texts. Sign up for an orientation session in the campus library and computer facilities. Get to know your professors and advisors. Ask questions. "I didn't know," or "I didn't understand" is never an excuse. list end List of 1 items • 8. Find at least one or two students in each class to study with. Studies show that students who study with someone routinely make better grades. You will probably find yourself more motivated if you know someone else cares about what you are doing in the class. Teaching a concept or new idea to someone else is a sure way for you to understand it. Studying in a group or with a partner can sometimes become too social. It is important to stay focused. list end List of 1 items • 9. Study the hardest subject first. Work on your hardest subjects at a time when you are fresh. Putting them off until you're tired compounds the problem. list end List of 2 items • 10. Be good to yourself. Studying on four hours of sleep and an empty stomach or junk-food diet is a waste of time. Avoid food and drink containing caffeine just before or just after studying. • For more tips and practice using these tips , you may want to purchase Practicing CollegeLearning Strategies , 3rd edition by Carolyn Hopper published by Houghton Mifflin, 2003 Return to Study Skills Help Page list end faderbl
