10 Times 'Zombieland' Summed Up Your College Life

For those of you who have not seen "Zombieland," here's the deal. Basically Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, and Abigail Breslin ride across the country killing zombies, who are humans infected by a super intensely scary virus, trying to reach their own perspective destinations without getting killed. It's a wonderful mix of horror and comedy all packed into about an hour and a half.

Throughout the movie the characters experience an array of emotions and feelings that describe the college life oh so perfectly.

Whether you're running from zombies or running from your responsibilities, the gym is a friend, not a foe.

You understand each other's struggles like no other.

5. Getting Ready For A Night Out

Do I need to say more?

7. Free Food

There is nothing like hearing the words "free" in college, especially for food.

8. Getting An Exam Back

The tears are way too real.

9. When You Don't Get Your Nap Or Coffee

Breakdowns are not just limited to toddlers. No sleep and no caffeine make for an interesting combination.

10. Savoring Every Memory You Make

We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn

College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us.
