    communal showers were one of the worst things about freshman living.

    30+ girls. 5 showers. Clogged with SO MUCH HAIR. The water would back up and go to your ankles. Also, only one shower faucet was powerful and had hot water so uh, we all camped out to get it.

    Sucked sucked sucked

    Nothing creates bonding between floor mates like hall bathrooms. Seeing each other half naked whenever you want to shower tends to do that. That and toilet stalls right next to each other with short partitions.

    Ahh, memories...

    i'm definitely glad i lived on campus my freshman year. i never would've made as many friends otherwise. this might've been different if i hadn't been in the 4 person per bathroom setup, as community shower situations weird me out.

    on the other hand, i am equally glad i immediately moved off campus my sophomore year.

    My freshmen bathroom had this one hick-up that I might describe as having been designed by the devil. Whenever you were taking a shower and anyone flushed the toilet (literally of the five) you would immediately being burnt with a rush of searing, hot water.

    You had to get sensitive years because people would come in and just flush every toilet if someone was in the shower, just to be a dick. The moment you heard that first flush you would have to reflexively jump the side of the wall to avoid the lava water.

    Haha, the same thing for us, too. But since the hottest water was only lukewarm we all, or at least *I* did, prayed that someone would come in and flush the toilet many times.

    Know what sucks? Having one shower room for all of the athletic locker rooms at my school sans Football cause there are far too many people on that team to make that work.

    Baseball, Tennis, Basketball, Track, Soccer all connected by one large yet small in quantity of amenities area.

    And you've got 10 minutes to clean up. Shit sucked.

    People in my school regularly take their poops on the floor 3 inches from the toilet.

    I don't understand why someone would want to go through the trouble of actually doing that, and actually try to poop out in pellets. Makes no sense.

    I had a friend who worked in maintence & conferences last summer. He told me that he had to constantly yell at the football/basketball coaches to tell their students to stop being apes.

    Apparently every other day he had to be called out because someone had been throwing poop everywhere, just everywhere.

    I know of one resident hall on my campus that three years ago had a the students building some crow's nests in the urinals. Same resident hall had people throwing dead crows in the laundry machines.

    Same year there was one resident hall where two residents urinated into a bucket for a couple months (and they filled it up) to only pour it down the entire hallway (resulting in the entire carpet system having to be removed every other year because the stench would come back).

    people are so weird and disgusting

    college has mostly made me realize how much people suck

    a friend of mine has been wondering if other schools are as disgusting as our school and i wonder if i should tell her these stories so she feels better about ours or i shouldn't because

    well

    pooping everywhere is a dumb thing that i hope she never knows people do

    Dead crows, that's a good one.

    One time I accidentally exploded a toilet cause it was clogged up with so much toilet paper and such but it was all inside and wasn't in the toilet proper so I didn't see it.

    Took the entire half of the toilet off along with side of the wall.

    There are always a few swastikas carved out of the bathroom stall walls monthly if not weekly around the school, along with other usual vandalism type grafitti along the walls.

    One kid wrote in something "Try and erase this" once and the next I checked in on it and the janitor had erased it completely.

    Also used condoms are around the school a lot.

    Ya know, it's a wonder my school gets such high marks and so many excellent students...

    Oh jack-o-lanterns.

    Someone actually fully replaced one of the toilets with a jack-o-lantern and made the water still spew out of it and such into different areas.

    They got the water to spew over an entire stall wall onto someone taking a dump.

    Also they opened up one of those little drains and shot a bottle rocket down it, causing it to explode right where the shower head was onto someone.

    So the faculty association issued a 72 hour strike notice a month and a half ago

    They never walked out on the job but during exam week announced that they were going to refuse to submit final grades unless they negotiated what they wanted with the college

    at this time all the profs were like "this is just a bargaining tactic. you'll marks will be fine. promise."

    well. final marks are due the 26th from the profs and the college has just emailed all students implying that we're fucked as far as university transfers are concerned.

    fuck me.
