They never mentioned it in the brochure and by the time you realize it, it’s too late. Your campus is a suitcase campus. The minute classes let out on Friday everyone is gone, heading back to their hometown and high school friends. Not sure if your campus is a suitcase campus? Here are 12 ways to figure it out.

1. Walking around campus on the weekend is like walking through a ghost town.

2. The coffee shop is empty and actually quiet.

3. There are only two places on campus to eat.

4. You can find a parking spot on the first floor.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F12%2F09%2F635852903185686196-255150665_tumblr_mij61dIhA11qa2szuo1_500.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=548&h=a0cf2fa250964cfa02ac5982aa062efe1ca9e5adef432b78e21e0bea502c78da&size=980x&c=2382792728 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F12%252F09%252F635852903185686196-255150665_tumblr_mij61dIhA11qa2szuo1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D548%26h%3Da0cf2fa250964cfa02ac5982aa062efe1ca9e5adef432b78e21e0bea502c78da%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2382792728%22%7D" expand=1]

5. The gym closes at 7 p.m.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F12%2F09%2F635852905225556010-1297491907_tumblr_inline_molr7zYdHM1qz4rgp.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=612&h=07caaf22a92f5612c2a734ea922d4e1c810a91e6b224b0f81ef7a70ae84c7283&size=980x&c=1570532140 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F12%252F09%252F635852905225556010-1297491907_tumblr_inline_molr7zYdHM1qz4rgp.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D612%26h%3D07caaf22a92f5612c2a734ea922d4e1c810a91e6b224b0f81ef7a70ae84c7283%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1570532140%22%7D" expand=1]

Not like we were going to work out anyway...

6. You get all your work done because there aren’t any distractions...

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F12%2F09%2F635852907210038997-470134262_GIF-pretending-to-study-in-front-of-ur-parents-like.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=72&h=912156a05de05a20299a963c5205fb7c2c6b34a4e00a9d315d08b2039bd19730&size=980x&c=2871946163 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F12%252F09%252F635852907210038997-470134262_GIF-pretending-to-study-in-front-of-ur-parents-like.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D72%26h%3D912156a05de05a20299a963c5205fb7c2c6b34a4e00a9d315d08b2039bd19730%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2871946163%22%7D" expand=1]

7. Or you binge watch an entire season on Netflix because there aren’t any distractions.

because what else is there to do?

8. You can actually get laundry done.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F12%2F09%2F635852911511197203-849927414_nickmiller.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=698&h=3f134ca324257d767d44611b7d6bae35fa386028ee92fe69ca7c09084e623d89&size=980x&c=135135617 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F12%252F09%252F635852911511197203-849927414_nickmiller.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D698%26h%3D3f134ca324257d767d44611b7d6bae35fa386028ee92fe69ca7c09084e623d89%26size%3D980x%26c%3D135135617%22%7D" expand=1]

9. You can keep your door open without being interrupted every five minutes.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F12%2F09%2F635852923270130627-2017678180_ross-leaves-door-open-o.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=595&h=9fc1e663f1309eeb13ad1a4ec4c005f1ac3493c6a561ac34550448c52a47280a&size=980x&c=2658320419 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F12%252F09%252F635852923270130627-2017678180_ross-leaves-door-open-o.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D595%26h%3D9fc1e663f1309eeb13ad1a4ec4c005f1ac3493c6a561ac34550448c52a47280a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2658320419%22%7D" expand=1]

10. Or keep your door closed so no one knows you are still on campus.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F12%2F09%2F635852921914173387-414771862_words-newhampshire-15.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=154&h=92e35d6edb9b4b036ad2c9e3c8b3750fc71ca4ace5467e1d0cc7912024210d2c&size=980x&c=3254160072 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F12%252F09%252F635852921914173387-414771862_words-newhampshire-15.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D154%26h%3D92e35d6edb9b4b036ad2c9e3c8b3750fc71ca4ace5467e1d0cc7912024210d2c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3254160072%22%7D" expand=1]


11. You go to text your friends to hang and they all reply they are at home.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F12%2F09%2F635852927371932502-368311455_lucy.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=205&h=2afe5e0c54d72603526153f8a0608085520880944898599532cd6a8bf33539d0&size=980x&c=2432705295 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F12%252F09%252F635852927371932502-368311455_lucy.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D205%26h%3D2afe5e0c54d72603526153f8a0608085520880944898599532cd6a8bf33539d0%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2432705295%22%7D" expand=1]

12. You sit aimlessly in your room, counting down the hours until everyone comes back.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F12%2F09%2F635852916219314507-994889127_serena-painting-nails.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=552&h=e2f9c2fcc61ae8d82ae2adb54548f6978f10c32aec0a602299c03b401105e0e2&size=980x&c=3838755150 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F12%252F09%252F635852916219314507-994889127_serena-painting-nails.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D552%26h%3De2f9c2fcc61ae8d82ae2adb54548f6978f10c32aec0a602299c03b401105e0e2%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3838755150%22%7D" expand=1]
