1. When all you want to do is study but the college is clean out of desk space, and you’re finding it hard to concentrate ’cause the coloured notebooks give the gang some classic bants…

 

 

I mean, how are you ever meant to earn a degree in these conditions?

2. When you just want some ‘me’ time so you can go stroke some books in the library…

 

 

Can’t a guy just stroke his books in peace?!

3. When you’re trying to get to class but you REALLY can’t stop laughing at all the colours…

 

 

“Oh man, this is just too much…”

 

 

“I mean, yellow is funny, right?”

 

 

“Am I right??”

4. When you get stuck in a queue on the lawn but none of you have any idea what you’re queueing for…

 

 

They must be British because they all still seem pretty happy about it…

5. When it’s graduation day – the happiest day of your life thus far – and your Mortarboard keeps floating through the tips of your clever little graduate fingers…

 

 

And though it’s pretty embarrassing that your entire family are watching the floating hat mishap, for some reason, you and the gang STILL can’t stop laughing about it…

6. When your entire class is late because you get distracted by some buildings…

 

 

7. When you head outside to take a break and your path is blocked by a group of jumping students…

 

 

“We just LOVE these notebooks!!”

8. When you’re trying to study but your look is so classroom-smart-casual you just have to take a moment to give it a thumbs up…

 

 

Will the distractions NEVER cease?!

9. And you just. can’t. stop. JUMPING!

 

 

Is it something they put in the water? Why are you all so…jumpy??

10. When you leave your book on the grass for five minutes and it takes on a life of its own…

 

 

…Weird.

11. Erm, and honestly…where are all the desks in this place?!

 

 

It really is a problem…

 

 

But why waste money on desks and chairs when they all seem happy enough on the floor?

 

 

I mean, standing or sitting, they really can’t get enough of this severe lack of surfaces.

 

 

Then again…it would be pretty hard to even reach any of the surfaces when you constantly have to dodge lounging bodies on the library floor…

 

 

Don’t any of you have a home to go to??

12. When your essay’s just so great you have to punch the air…

 

 

13. And the guy stroking all those books is just getting a bit creepy now…

 

 

Dude – go and stoke your own books…jeez!

14. When you need to dash to the bathroom but this guy always chooses the most inconvenient place to do work on his laptop…

 

 

But you have to hand it to him – if the college won’t buy any tables, the stairs are as good a place as any.

15. When you’re trying to steal your teacher’s briefcase but he totally sets you up…

 

 

Hey, what does he keep in there anyway? Red Bull and broken dreams?

16. When you’re trying to plan your group project but you find it pretty hard to write with your hands up in the air…

 

 

Well at least you have a desk…

17. When you’re trying to give a presentation but you get stuck behind the blackboard…

 

 

“If I just stand here smiling, maybe no one will even notice. Hey, maybe I can even distract them from the fact that there’s nothing even written on this stupid board.”

18. When your A+ writes itself so you give it a thumbs up…

 

 

“Good job, A+. I couldn’t have said it better myself.”

19. When these kids feel the need to shelter under an umbrella and it isn’t even raining…

 

 

And even if it was – why would you not just go inside?

20. When you leave your glasses on top of your textbook because you know it will read itself…

 

 

“Hey, I’m gonna go get a pizza and by the time I come back, you better understand the Psychological Foundations of Attitude or I’m gonna let that weird guy who’s stroking books over there rub his grubby fingers all over you!”

21. When you and the girls need to present in 5 so kick things off with some casual jazz hands on the stairs…

 

 

‘Cause nothing gets the blood pumping quite like jazz hands on the stairs…

22. When the lack of desks and chairs finally tips you over the edge…

 

 

“Every time I write on my lap the pen goes right through the paper and I can’t read my notes through all thouse tiny little holes! I just CAN’T take it any longer!!”

23. When you head off to the library to take some pictures of the shelves…

 

 

Time well spent, I’d say!

24. When you prefer to leave the book on top of your head so the knowledge seeps right through…

 

 

The question is- is the college just magic or are these students superhuman?

25. When you thought you were sat in class but you’ve actually been on the roof staring at a wall for three hours…

 

 

26. When you head for your 9 o’clock and these five weirdos feel the need to wave every. single. time…

 

 

And you feel obliged to give a nervous wave back but you still have no idea who they are…

27. When these guys are so eager to learn Complex Function Theory, they practically sprint to class…

 

 

I mean…really?!

28. When it’s time to leave Stock Photo College and your only belongings are 10 books, one plant and a heap of empty boxes…

 

 

Living the dream!
