Read This If You Like to Laugh

By Paige Captain on August 2, 2017

I have known for a long time now that I was going to have to eventually write an article that fell under the category of Humor, but really I had no idea what that article would even look like.

Was I supposed to talk about my favorite comedian? Discuss the current comedies in theaters? Make up a funny story? None of these ideas really seemed all that great to me.

I started thinking about humor and how it related to college students. It seems to me that people tend to look back on their college memories as some of the best times of their lives, which could also be some of the funniest memories of their lives. I spent a lot of time brainstorming different ideas of how I could turn this concept into an article until I finally landed on this one.

I spent a lot of time interviewing anyone and everyone I knew who was currently in college. I asked for them to share with me any and all funny experiences they’ve had as college students. This is what I got, and I decided to use the names of the schools instead of the names of the people who told them to me; I hope you enjoy!

1. Fast food class

“One time in my English class for my first semester of college, my professor and one of my classmates got into this huge argument about the healthiest fast food places in our area. It took up about half an hour of our class time. The entire class was involved by the end of it all.”

–Orange Coast College

2. Crushing on my professor

“It’s my first day of the new semester. And I had gotten to class a few minutes early and I was waiting outside. This guy is standing outside next to me and he starts talking to me, asking me where I lived, where I was from, what my major was, what I did over the weekend, etc. I thought he was cute (I mean he was covered in full sleeve tattoos and seemed on the younger side).

“We then walk into class together and I expect him to sit at the desk next to me and continue talking to me. Instead, he walks up to the front of the room to the podium, looks at me and says, “by the way, I’m your professor.”

– Grand Canyon University

3. Undie run romance

“You may or may not have heard of this, but twice a year my school does something called the Undie Run. For those who have never heard of this, it is exactly what it sounds like: a bunch of people running in their underwear. Anyway, I was in a super big fight with this guy I was seeing at the time and ended up wandering into this random dorm. I met one of the guys who lived there and we sort of hit it off. I ended up accidentally leaving my shoes at his place and when I went back to get them the next day, he asked me out. We’re engaged now.”

–Chapman University

4. Birthday kidnapping

“For my 19th birthday my friends decided to surprise me by kidnapping me and taking me out to boba. At like 10:30 on the night before my birthday, I was getting ready for bed when I heard a knock at the door. I opened the door and found my friend Jake standing there with his arms open and I thought he was going to give me a hug so I went in for the hug but instead he tackled me to the floor while someone else tied my hands and feet together.

“Then they all wrapped me up in a blanket, carried me down three flights of stairs, and out of my dorm. They then tried to carry me all the way to the parking lot … but because the parking lot was a good six minute walk from my dorm and up some very steep stairs, they got tired of carrying me and just left me on the floor while they brought the car around.

“Then, they shoved me in the back seat and drove me 30 minutes to Santa Monica to take me to a sketchy boba place because it was the only one open. But aside from the tackling and the dropping me and the shoving me, they made the whole thing very fun and it was definitely my favorite birthday surprises ever.”

–Pepperdine University

As always, thanks for reading! Although this article was a little different, I hope you not only enjoyed it, but laughed a little.
