We Want To Hear Your Syllabus Week Horror Stories

Sylly week is now over, which means it’s time to start hitting the books and taking those 8 a.m. classes seriously. Up until this point, it’s all been cushy review material and a waiting game until everyone in the class has received their books. So it’s very likely that for many of you, the purpose of this past week was reuniting with friends and perhaps engaging in some nefarious behaviors.

Let’s get serious, though. Sometimes even an innocent night out with your friends can take a turn for the worst and end up being a full-on disaster. Maybe you’re one month away from your 21st birthday and you chose this opportune time to receive an underage. Maybe you decided to throw a simple housewarming party “with a few friends” and now you’re definitely not getting your security deposit back. Whatever it is, we want to hear about it so we can all wallow in the misfortune of actually starting classes together and maybe even get a good laugh in.

If you have a crazy syllabus week story, send it (anonymously if you so choose), to [email protected]. Maybe you can maybe start to get some closure.
