'None of the students would ever forget that particular tour': Dean demands college students clean science lab, students give visitors an unforgettable demonstration

The students at this college are going to have an amazing story to tell about the first time they visited campus . College can be such a fun-filled and magical time for a young adult, but picking the right college is important. If you're a serious student who wants to buckle down and focus on school, you shouldn't pick that college that's known to be a party school. And conversely, if you're planning to party a lot and spend time on campus getting to know your new friends, you'd better make sur…

Campus resident demands student leash up his dog during an evening walk, only to be told canine is a wild coyote

Campus resident demands student leash up his dog during an evening walk, only to be told canine is a wild coyote

Sometimes it seems like folks are content to listen to themselves talk. For them, having their opinions heard is more essential than having any knowledge of the topic at hand. This is the story of a Caltech student who was left speechless. A man approached the original poster (OP) while he was wandering about the campus and said something absurd about a dog. OP initially thought the man was talking to the person behind him, but he soon realized that was not the case. The man seemed to be reques…

‘The money better be back by the time I'm home': Housemate refuses to let broke roommate get away with taking $1,000 from his room while he was out

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. This housemate was in for a rude awakening when they arrived home one day only to discover that a whopping $1,000 in cash was missing from his bedroom. The money was there, and now it wasn't… living with a roommate, he only had one suspect to confront. This roommate was a real pain and was constantly complaining to him and creating 'boundaries'. Funny, isn't there such a boundary that is protected by the law called 'stealing'? People are wild. Th…

'Try and sue us? Get fired instead': College students left in the cold get back at their absent landlord

Would you rather your house always be too cold , or too hot? Depending on the way your house is heated or cooled, you probably already know your answer.

'My manager asks Karen exactly what she wants': Helicopter parent refuses to accept dorm roommates for her college-aged son

'My manager asks Karen exactly what she wants': Helicopter parent refuses to accept dorm roommates for her college-aged son

Being a helicopter parent to a toddler is one thing, but if your kid grows up and you're still acting that way, it's going to get awkward real fast. When you're raising a toddler, it makes sense to keep a close eye on them. They're whirling dervishes of destruction who can color your couch with markers one minute and climb inside the dishwasher the next. But over time, you've got to let your kids gain independence by seeing the world on their own. Too bad no one ever told this college kid's mot…

‘Please don't tow my parents car': College tenants parents arrive to celebrate their graduation, landlord demands $200 for 1 hour parking

‘Please don't tow my parents car': College tenants parents arrive to celebrate their graduation, landlord demands $200 for 1 hour parking

I can still remember that one landlord who was so stingy that it was almost remarkable he owned any land at all. The roof had been leaking for months, and one night it began cascading down the wall like a small waterfall. I called my perpetually absent landlord up but he never answered. Voicemail… great. He never did fix that roof and I ended up moving, but I can understand what having a cheap landlord is like. A couple of college students were living together throughout their semester, and the…

‘My roommate hasn’t been paying a dime': College student's roommate orders food using their money, then gets a full refund and doesn't pay them back

Discovering your roommate is cheating you out of money leads to a very certain kind of righteous fury. How dare they do something like that? You're living with the person, so there is no escaping these feelings. You see them on a day-to-day basis, and you know they won't pay you back. One person took to r/mildlyinfuriating to describe a very frustrating discovery they had about their roommate.

‘It’s time you pay': University employee gets fed up with dean's refusal to accommodate students' needs, prints out free textbooks for students that cost thousands

If you ever find yourself talking to someone who is not from the US about college, they are always shocked by how much college students have to pay for tuition. Some countries in Europe have actual free universities , and here in good ol' America, people carry their student loans for literal decades. That is why when we hear of stories in which colleges and universities take even more money from their students, without an actual valid reason, it simply makes us see red. For example, can someone…

Group project slackers shocked to receive failing grade, while their hard-working teammates performed well:  'I got an A in the class'

Group project slackers shocked to receive failing grade, while their hard-working teammates performed well: 'I got an A in the class'

Everyone's greatest fear when it comes to working on a group project is the group of people with whom you'll be working. If you're a type A person, you will likely fear having to do all of the work yourself. If you're a slacker, you will likely wonder how much you can get away with based on the work ethic of your partners. The unfortunate reality is that no matter where you fall on the scale of teacher's pet to slacker, group projects are not exactly thrilling for you no matter what. Here, we h…

college student students college-student parking parking-permit permit broke ticket campus tickets petty revenge reddit win university

'Never paid a cent': Witty student calls the university's bluff, breaking the parking permit system by refusing to pay for tickets

Parking permits are a scam in college. Schools know that broke students are barely scraping together enough pocket change to eat instant noodles every night, so why not squeeze out an extra $300 per semester to allow them to park on campus? Clearly, it's a luxury to park your car half a league from your classroom, but not one that every student can afford.

'Karen can move in': College student gets even with nightmare roommate, moves out and finds the perfect replacement

There is nothing quite like the pettiness that exists within a college dorm. Sure, people can be petty throughout their lives but there seems to be something especially petty regarding living situations during those four years. Part of this may be due to the obvious absence of parents and the further development of one's adult brain during this time. Part of it is the collision of differing lifestyles and the confrontation with other people's living habits. Part of it is just the nature of coll…

'She thinks [...] he has a right to park there': Roommates confront student's boyfriend who keeps hogging shared parking spot

Fighting over limited parking spaces is one of those universal experiences that connects even the most different individuals. Here , we have a group of five college students whose off-campus apartment included just two parking spaces in their driveway, which unfortunately meant that three of the tenants needed to rely on street parking regularly. One of the students who claimed one of those two desired spots at the beginning of their lease had their car towed. However, instead of giving her spo…
