The purpose of high school is supposed to be to help young people survive after graduation. Of course, these college students are finding that their K-12 education left them woefully unprepared to deal with some of the intricacies of university life.
Here are some funny tweets by college students who’ve observed some strange phenomena—and wonder why their schools didn’t prepare them for these issues!
13. This Big Dreamer
We need an update on this, please!
The girl next to me is talking on the phone and says “my first day of classes as a freshman is over, isn’t it crazy that in just 4 years I’ll be working at my dream job” ….should I tell her?

10. C For Effort
At least he passed?
My professor handed back our 3 page film essays to my surprise I got a C after class I asked her why “you were supposed to write it about the movie The Emperor of Time.. you wrote it on The Emperor’s new Groove but it was kinda good so I didn’t fail you” so thats how im doing

9. Group Projects Are Never Fun
Especially not like this!
Welcome to college. Where every single person is smarter than you except for the 3 people in your group project.

8. Pet Chinchillas in Class?
You can’t say college students aren’t crafty!
today in class this guy I was sitting next to had a bag of carrots & the entire class he kept throwing them into his backpack. I asked him what he was doing & he was like "oh sorry do u want one? they're for Kent" and then just whips open his backpack to show his chinchilla Kent

7. Thank You, BTS
BTS is the answer to everything.
Idk if I'll ever be able to talk to about it in deep, but when I say or write that I thank you, I fucking mean it. University life, work, youth, adulthood… it would have been a very different path if it weren't for you meeting me, me meeting you, in 2017 @BTS_twt I love you

6. This Is True
And expensive, ouch!

5. Maybe He’s a Drama Major…
And future Oscar winner!
i just saw a guy in the library cry for five or so minutes and then his phone alarm went off and he just? stopped crying? and went right on back to work

4. Never Ever Brag!
No one cares about your ACT score once you actually get to college.
some kid in the library is bragging loudly about how he got a 35 on the ACT well sir I signed up for the ACT but forgot I did and missed the test and we still ended up at the same school how does that make you feel

3. Emailing Your Professors
It’s not like they grade you on class emails!
Emailing professors be like
Me: *polite greeting, multiple paragraphs, perfect grammar*
Professor: “sure” -sent from my iPhone

2. Yeah, It’s Expensive
The best years of your life come at a cost.
college be like: here pay $4000 to take one class that is online and you will never even see your professor in person but you still need to buy the $150 book and $200 access code ??

1. Remember, Life Comes At You Fast
Might as well have a sense of humor about it.
Choose the major you love and you’ll never work another day in your life. Because that field probably isn’t hiring…

University students aren’t always living in the best of circumstances, but at least they try to look on the bright side.
