10 Crazy Things All College Students Do

Don't let the picture fool you. We are all dead on the inside.

10 Crazy Things All College Students Do
Odyssey Online

College was deemed to be "The best four years of your life." Whoever said that did not realize that college students have too many responsibilities on their plates to act somewhat normal. Here are 10 crazy things I have noticed over the past year that all college students do.

1. Set an alarm for a 10 minute nap

Let's be honest. Between classes, clubs, seeing friends, and having personal time, we sometimes need to take a quick nap just to make sure we get through the day.

2. Wearing headphones when walking around campus

It's 9am in the morning, and someone approaches me. Does it seem like I really want to talk to someone this early? Nope! Wearing headphones around campus avoids small talk in the morning with someone you don't really like.

3. Partying with random people/at random people's houses

"Hey, I don't know you! Let's take a shot!"

4. Stealing anything that would look remotely cool in your room.

Especially on TCNJ's campus, people will steal ANYTHING from posters to the sign of the student center just because.

5. Drinking caffeine at ANY hour of the day

Whether it's 7am or 12am, it is ALWAYS socially acceptable to drink caffeine at any hour of the day. It helps to keep us going.

6. Going to campus events for free food/shirts


7. Never knowing where your money went

I feel like every college student is broke. I honestly wonder where all of my money went sometimes. Food? Alcohol? Impulsive spending? The world may never know.

8. Wearing whatever you want to class

Whether it be sweatpants, a business suit, pajamas, or even a blanket, our stress levels are too high to care about what we are wearing to class.

9. Stealing food from the dining hall

Aside from stealing signs, college students LOVE to steal food. We are too poor/hungry and don't have time to make real food or wait in long lines.

10. Somehow managing to get through everything at the end of the day

Getting through a day of classes can be tough, but oddly enough, we can (and somehow do) make it through!!

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
