15 Photos That Won't Make Sense To Someone Who Didn't Go To EIU

To outsiders, EIU is just another state university, but to students, current and past, it's a way of life. There are just some things only EIU students would understand, no matter what year they graduated. Eastern Illinois University is said to be 'The Harvard of the Midwest', and if you didn't or don't go there, you definitely won't understand these photos.

1. When you have at least 15 pictures just like this on your camera roll

2. When you're too lazy to walk to class, so you take a chance and park in the staff lot

3. When someone says, "Eastern's fun and all, but I'd never go there"

4. When the person working the Stevo grill puts someone else's egg-veggies on the grill even though you put yours down first

5. When the school charges you $120 for a 'damaged' textbook you used a max of 3 times the entire semester

6. When it's Krispy Kreme Thursday

7. When you make the mistake of going to the rec at 4 PM
