i had a blast in college but nothing that would end up on text from last night. there was plenty of craziness to be had if that was your scene but i only indulged on very rare occasions. i had just as much fun hanging out with friends and making snow angels. yup, so deviant. lol

We partied, but not hard enough.  I went to a small liberal arts school and while I loved my friends, I was generally one of the few who wanted to party and drink and get up to trouble.  I could occasionally convince people to join me (and there were a couple of parties where I convinced everyone to make out which was awesome) but mostly it was a great experience living right near all my close friends but a little too tame.  There was also definitely a lot of fun silliness, though.

If you want it to be a party, it is.

I went out for a lot of coffee and dinners with my friends and hung out at the library.

I’d say my first two years of college were “that” wild. The second two were much more subdued…I had to push my grades up because I knew I wanted to go to grad school. I went to a state school that is VERY well known for partying…so it wasn’t easy to avoid, but I agree with PP, it is what you make it.

My college was a commuter 2 year school, so most people were 25 or older. There were actually a lot of older people at my college. So no, it wasn’t. But I also didn’t live on campus and only went there for classes and specific events. There were a couple of events that had alcohol, and for people who lived close to campus (there was no on campus housing) I guess they did more than me

College is what you make it, so you can party or you can choose not to.

My friends and I were definitely “girls gone mild” though… our idea of a wild night was a late night run to the grocery store, or an impromtu trip into the city.  Seriously.  We were all education majors, so we had a LOT of work to do, plus we couldn’t risk our careers or reputations with a DUI or plastered pictures showing up on the internet somewhere.

I haven’t been in college in awhile … and I think i’m STILL tired from never sleeping. I went to a state school that is a party school (and just checked the new list and it’s still in the top 10). I’m amazed I survived, and graduated with a decent gpa.  Fall was the best, pre-gaming with alums and parents before Football games, and now they are selling beer at the stadiums, it’s going to be out of control. The lake in the spring, I’d come home for summer break already tan. We all were pretty out of control till the last year or so. 

  It was a lot of fun and I had great friends, roomates, met my ex-fiancee there… It’s funny tho, I went on vaca nearby a few years ago & so we went and looked around campus & the AMAZING house we lived in was truely a dump just like my parents said it was LOL.
