College As Told By 'Elf'

It's that time of the year again! Thanksgiving is over, it's time to crank up the Christmas music and deck the halls. In the spirit of getting excited for Christmas, here is college life told by one of the best Christmas movies of all time, 'Elf':

2) When you were growing up, you were taught to look both ways before crossing the street. Now, in college, you walk across the street without checking traffic, daring the cars to hit you so you can use that money to pay off your student loans.

5) Those midnight munchies cravings.

6) When you check your grades for the first time in three weeks.

7) Telling everyone the reason for your bad grades is your bad professor.
