50 Things Every College Student Has Definitely Googled

Have you ever wondered how previous generations ever learned about, like, anything with Google? I mean, sure, books were a thing. But what did college students do when they wanted to ask a question that was embarrassing to ask ("what is "The Quan" and how do I hit it?"), or when they needed information immediately ("What are the official rules for beer pong?"), or when they needed to learn an entire course five minutes before a huge test ("Summarize the entire middle ages in one paragraph no big words please")? The fact is, life before Google was probably pretty hard. The average college student of 2016 can't go a single day without Googling something. Why do we need books when Google can just tell us everything we need to know, in bullet point form, and with handy little pictures to go with it?

If you are a college student living in today's world, here are 50 things you have probably googled at some point

1. "How much does the average stripper make?"

14. "Chipotle near me"

15. "Will a sugar daddy pay off my student loans?"

16. "Who was that one actor in that one movie with that one actress?"

17. "How to write an essay on a topic I know nothing about?"

18. "How many days can I go without sleep and still function as a human?"

19. "What jobs require no math but still make a lot of money?"

20. "How can I lose 15 pounds by tomorrow?"

21. "Do you have to separate your laundry into whites and colors?"

22. "Where can I buy a fake ID?"

23. "If I die do I still have to pay my student loans?"

24. "Free Netflix account passwords"

25. "Is my (insert body part here) supposed to look like this?"

26. "How to sleep in class without anyone noticing"

27. "What is the other 98 percent of 2% milk?"

44. "I think my roommate might actually be Satan"

45. "Can't stop feeling like I'm forgetting to do something?"

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack.
