What happens in college stays in college. Well, not really. Unless you live under a rock, meaning you skip the crucial experience of a flatshare, never compete in a beer pong battle, and run away from jagerbombs, there are tons of hilarious, sad, and cringey stories to share with someone. The question is, who is that person you could entrust them to?

Turns out there’s a whole Instagram page dedicated to it titled “Collegefessing” which is basically a safe place to post your best and worst college moments. With a whopping 6M followers eavesdropping big time, the page is somewhat of a playground for the craziness of student years.

All teachers, grade school through university, should be tested on the subjects they will be teaching AND general knowledge ( thinking of the teacher who insisted a bat was a bird) IMHO.

First, let's start with the elephant in the room. Partying, partying and more partying is a key (although we can debate how key it actually is) part of the student package, but you can always overdo it, making your grades, motivation, and lifestyle suffer as a result.

A good tip from Katie Roiphe, book author and the director of the Cultural Reporting and Criticism Program at New York University, is to learn how to drink. She suggests drinking two drinks fewer than you want to. “You will get more joy out of life if you are alert to it, before that second-to-last drink, when the evening gets slurred. If you drink too much, you lose those lovely, wild moments,” Katie says and added that if you master the art of getting just-the-right-amount drunk, you will have more fun. This will turn out to be a super amazing skill to carry through your adulthood.

I'm the child of an alcoholic, so I don't drink. I feel this on a spiritual level.

Secondly, you have to remember that college years are excellent for making valuable connections. Trying to talk to your college professors is a great thing to do, but many undergraduates feel either intimidated or feel like they have other things to do. But Roiphe argues that your professors will appreciate your making an effort to connect and discuss things.

“This will be useful for you later, if you need a recommendation or a job, but it is also the way to get the best possible education. I know this because I am a professor,” she said and added that “So many of my most important pedagogical conversations happen in my office or outside of the classroom over coffee.”

Matt Might, a professor of Internal Medicine and Computer Science and Hugh Kaul Endowed Chair in Personalized Medicine also has quite a few wonderful tips on everything from dorm room coffee to study habits to saving cash on tuition. Might’s first advice is to realize that professors are not teachers. “Teachers in high school were trained and certified to educate. Professors spent the best years of their lives extending the boundary of human knowledge, and then won a professorship on their prowess in research. After that, someone threw them into a classroom and asked them to teach,” he argues.

If you don't want your nude photos on the internet, don't pose for them and don't allow your boyfriend to take them. People can't publish your nudes if they don't exist.

Thus, according to the professor, the key to interacting with professors is to realize that they're not teachers. “As researchers, professors have access to the cutting edge. Few students exploit that access, but it's not hard,” argues Might. His advice is to ask a professor about their research since “even the crankiest professor is going to brighten when talking about their own research. If it sounds interesting, ask if they need help in their lab.”

Don't get a puppy unless you can handle it. You might not be able to be sad with a puppy, but a puppy can be sad with a human.

Another thing to do is to sit in the front row. “A good professor is going to tune the lecture by reading the facial expressions of students. Unfortunately, it's hard to see all the way in the back, so we're really crafting the lecture to those that sit up front, whose faces we can see,” Might explains.

Just like Roiphe, professor Might urges students to go to office hours since it’s “a chance to get one-on-one mentoring from an expert. Plus, when you ask for a letter of recommendation, the professor will know you.” And this is what you ultimately wish when the time comes to look for a job or an internship.

I'm not sure how this is mastering hotels. some hotels don't offer twin rooms with queens, but single twin beds so you end up with a way smaller bed.

As bad as you feel for him, he’s not your responsibility. Alcoholism is terribly destructive for all involved.

1. If you wanted to lose weight, it’s great that you did and you should’ve been doing this for yourself not for a crush or to fit into a single shirt. 2. This girl owed you absolutely nothing. If your best friend knew about the crush Maybe you should be talking to them? People have different Thoughts about this but I would never go after one of my friends’ crushes. Just because you lost 25 pounds, or 100, or whatever; she is not the prize. 3. If you are proud of the weight loss, be proud and be happy and that is its own reward. you don’t get your crush as reward for doing something for yourself. 4. If you had to lose a bunch of weight to fit into a shirt, it was probably pretty obvious when she gave it to you that it didn’t fit. Kind of jerky, not very considerate. As someone who has had a grandparent give me obviously too small clothes (And obviously way too big clothes) to try to humiliate me into weight loss- That says something about her as a person.

Quantity =/= Quality. Also, I really need to start remembering that the term "body count" doesn't ALWAYS mean the number of people you killed... 😅
