🤔10 Things All College Students Do 👀

by Jaly Marquez


Every student has their quirks, but there a few things we all do, for better or worse. Here are a few things we found:

1. Sit in darkness until the teacher turns on the light 🧛‍♂️

Yes, we are all guilty of looking like a bunch of little vampires before the teacher walks into our 8am class.

2. Assign themselves a seat 🤬

And yes, we all get mad when someone comes in and takes your spot. It’s a college rule, and even the teacher notices when you’re not in the same corner you’ve been in the past 15 weeks… so no its never okay to seat-swap…ever.

3. Look for free food anywhere 🤗

Where there is free pizza there is a student body. If you want a crowd for any campus activity, all you have to do is provide some much-needed free junk, be it food or toiletries; anything free is always a good thing.

4. Complain about money and loans🤦🏽‍♂️

This one is pretty self-explanatory and all together boring and monotonous, so let’s move on.

5. Say they’ve “read” a book to the professor, and then look up the online summary 🤷🏽‍♀️

All you SparkNotes, Schmoop, andCliffsNotess fiends know who you are.

6.Wait the first couple weeks to see if they really need the assigned book. Never buy it regardless. 🤫

These required access codes are really changing the game but there hasn’t been one time when I regretted my decision to pass on buying a $180+ textbook “that we can always use later on in life too.”

7.Complain about the dining hall food but never the workers – the workers are awesome. 👎🏾👍🏽

Even if the food is good, it’s bad. No matter how great the dining hall can be, it’s typically just a topic of discussion to always say it’s “bad.” But the staff there are always great, so thanks, guys!

8. Probably never take an 8am class after your freshman year. 😈

I’ve taken many 9:30am classes but I try my hardest to avoid any and all 8ams. This internal need to sleep-in probably leads back to why I never make breakfast.

9. Make an elaborate and productive list for the day and end up taking a 6-hour nap instead. 😴

It’s okay we all need sleep…even if you should’ve done laundry instead.

10. Read the syllabus to check the number – and length-  of the assignments (you need to make sure you’ll be able to make it the whole semester).🧐

We all count the first day of classes as a trial run…especially when you can’t find your teacher on RateMyProfessor.

Regardless of our bad habits, we’re still all trying our best to get through mountains of work while balancing a social life and (and work). Hang in there – we’re all right there with you.
