Tell Us About Your Syllabus Week Horror Stories

Syllabus week is a glorious time for most. Classes generally don’t have enough material to give quizzes or tests, everyone is hyped about being back, and for most, the alcohol flows heavily.

Of course, this is only generally the rule. Some professors have no respect for sylly week, and don’t care about your 8 a.m. hangover, and will quiz you on the two chapters of fluid mechanics he told you to read the day before. We want to hear your worst stories about passing over parties to write papers, taking quizzes still drunk the next morning, and all the other horrible syllabus week stories you have. Just submit your story in the form, along with your name and email address, and we’ll pick our favorites to be featured on the site.

About the Author

Mike Reisman

is a senior Supply Chain Management major with an Economics minor (Read: Business Douche) from South Jersey. He has an intense fear of graduating so please don't bring it up. He writes about stupid things nobody cares about, and student life if the site is low on content that is clearly supposed be funny but is really very unfunny. He is lovingly (?) known around the staff as Baby Mike which may or may not be because he has a child (hint: it’s not). He’s also a second generation Penn Stater who has been wearing Penn State sweatshirts since before he was two, a habit he hasn’t grown out of. If you really hate yourself, you can follow him on twitter at @mike_reisman or email him at [email protected]
