Pretty self-explanatory. Does it involve alcohol? Sex? Poor decisions? Is it someone else’s story and you just happened to be a part of it? I took college really seriously but just like most people I also ended up with some movie-material stuff. Here’s a top 3 that comes in mind.
1. I took an exam while drunk. Not hungover, actually drunk. The crazy thing is nobody realised and I passed!!
2. I had (kind of ) sex in a room at a party while two of my girlfriends were at the balcony. I had no idea they were there and obviously they were too shy to interrupt us. I felt bad at the time but now we laugh about it. They actually gave me a good grade for my performance as they told me later haha.
3.Once I drove 65 miles and spent all my money on gas to attend a party only to find out it would take place the following week.
And of course I could start another thread about all the things I have walked into.
What about you?

OMG, I had a friend who took an exam while drunk too. She, however, did not do so well.
My favorite would have to be my first halloween at my college. Halloween is a very big deal at my school and one of our main streets is shut down for the night so people in costume can party. I was very inebriated but had a really good time. Next morning, I wake up and my hands are tingly. Like that sensation where you sleep on your hands and you can’t really feel them for a while. Except the sensation lasted for about 6 hours (yes I know I should have probably seen a doctor…dumb college decisions). I had no classes that day, but I did have to go to my internship for a few hours. My job at the time was almost entirely data entry. So, I’m sitting in the office, with little feeling in my hands, ham-handedly whacking the keyboards and hoping I pressed the right keys. My coworker walked into the office, took one look at me and said “First Halloween? Niiiice”
A close runner-up would be when I studied abroad in Europe. There were a number of Australian students on our residence hall floor, and they decided that they wanted to have an Australia-themed party. So, they upped the thermostat to like 80 degrees and took all of the sand from the volleyball court and dumped it into our kitchen/common area….to make it feel like you were in Australia. Definitely one of the craziest parties I had been to. The maintenance people were so mad the next morning when they saw the aftermath.

I went to Bennington, so pretty much my entire college experience while there was wild.

A.S.U. Sun Devil here.
Golf games in the dorm hallway at 2 a.m. and aiming for the sprinkler system. Hitting it and setting off fire alarms for the whole building (8 floors with two wings). Building evacuated, fire trucks on the scene, etc.
Keg parties that started in the laundry room at the end of the hall and ended up being crashed by half the football team and fraternity row. A bunch of us had to go to “campus court” and ended up being assigned trash duty for several weekends.
Dorm wars and pranks between my room mate and I, and the guys down the hall … all in good fun of course. They swiped the telephone from our room one time without our knowing. Then they went to the room directly above us, and dangled the phone out the window by its cord, so that the phone was clanking against our window. Tap, tap, tap… we went to the window to see what the noise was and discovered our telephone hanging in space. When we poked our heads out the window to see who had it, they dropped water balloons on us.
One semester I slacked off in all of my classes and ended up taking No-Doze pills and cramming for three days straight at the end, in an attempt to pass my final exams. I showed up for history class exhausted, sat down to take the test, and ended up falling asleep in my chair halfway through the exam. When I woke up, I discovered I had been taking the test in my sleep, apparently. One question was something about the reason behind an early border dispute between the Americans and the Canadians… in my sleep, I had scribbled something about them being snowbirds.
I had to repeat that class in summer school! LOL.
I can’t even remember what all else. It seemed like all we did was party for four years. I don’t know how I managed to end up earning a degree sometimes! Ha.

I was kind of a goody two shoes in university but I do have some stories. In second year, I was 19 (so legal drinking age) and I went out with a huge group of band friends for a big binge drinking bender one afternoon. We had band rehearsal that evening, and we all showed up drunk. The conductor was not pleased!
Later that same year, I went to the annual musical theatre party. Anyone here who has been to a theatre party, was a theatre major or musical theatre person, knows that these parties are more off the rails than frat parties. It was held at someone’s house, and when I showed up, there were kegs of beer all over the place, disgusting marijuana smoke was billowing out of the door, and people were dropping ecstasy and LSD. I went down to the basement and there were people having sex down there. Needless to say, I got out of that place pretty fast.
Third year, I went to another theatre party that was less intense then that last one. I walked into the place and was super thirsty. I spotted a bottle of sparkling lemonade on the table and chugged the entire thing in one go, learning that it had been spiked with half a bottle of gin by the person who brought it there. Drunk right from the start, lol. I stayed at that party, continued drinking, and in the morning I woke up on the floor with my friend’s head resting on my legs and her barf in my lap.

@his_sweet_girl: One time I almost pulled an all-nighter studying.
… I’m not very exciting as far as college goes. I just want to graduate and get a job already.

I am not even going to share mine. This is a public forum, and I have no desire for my hasty words to be traced back to me IRL.
The only one which I dare to partly share here involves me fracturing my spine, not realising, and waking up 6 months later paralysed down my left hand side (I’m fine now, BTW).
Definitely not sharing any of the others.

@FutureDrAtkins: I can’t actually remember if I tasted it at all. I likely did but just didn’t care at that point. The details of that story are sparse… All I remember is what I typed up there

@Rachel631: Oh my god!!!!!
One time, my best friend and I brought our own alcohol to the bar, and when we left (with two guys) we were walking ON TOP OF CARS down the street. We went into these guys’ apartment, I made out with one of them, and then we fended them both off with a blooper bat we stole from them. And ran.
Hmm. Another time, we started a bar fight. This guy walked by and said something to my best friend about her being a dyke, and my best friend responded that his girlfriend had no brain cells (something like that). He started shouting at us. We were all leaving the bar. He threw his beer at us (I remember it sparkled in the light…), but missed. So we followed him out of the bar, and his girlfriend was saying things like, “You wish you had this body, you wish you had this body…you’re from Europe…you go to Villanova.” Apparently, being from Europe and going to Villanova were both insults. So she keeps saying things like that, and the guy keeps saying, “I’d hit you if you were a man, I’d hit you if you were a man.” We’re sort of in the street, behind the bar. THEN…this white car pulls up, all doors open, four guys come out, and one of them grabs the guy who’d been taunting us and starts PUNCHING HIM IN THE FACE. WE RAN to my best friend’s truck to hide, and we watched as MORE GUYS started coming out of the bar and fighting. They all ended up in the middle of the street, fighting, and there were EIGHT COP CARS by the time all was said and done. We were in the truck the whole time, watching and “hiding”. IT WAS SO WEIRD.
