Differences in Students

  1. With the start of school, I thought you might enjoy the following
    list showing the difference between freshmen and seniors:

    Freshmen: Are never in bed past noon.
    Seniors: Are never out of bed before noon.

    Freshmen: Read the syllabus to find out what classes
    they can cut.
    Seniors: Read the syllabus to find out what classes
    they need to attend.

    Freshman: Brings a can of soda into a lecture hall.
    Senior: Brings a jumbo hoagie and six-pack of Mountain Dew
    into a recitation class.

    Freshman: Calls the professor "Professor."
    Senior: Calls the professor "Bob."

    Freshmen: Would walk ten miles to get to class.
    Seniors: Drive to class if it's further than three blocks away.

    Freshmen: Memorize the course material to get a good grade.
    Seniors: Memorize the professor's habits to get a good grade.

    Freshman: Roller skates to class.
    Senior: Roller skates instead of going to class.

    Freshman: Knows a ton of useless trivia about the university.
    Senior: Knows where the next class is. Maybe...

    Freshman: Shows up at a morning exam clean, perky, and fed.
    Senior: Shows up at a morning exam in sweats with
    a cap on and a box of pop tarts in hand.

    Freshmen: Have to ask where the computer labs are.
    Senior: Has "own" personal workstation.

    Freshmen: Worry about the last freshman composition essay.
    Seniors: Worry about the last GRE essay.

    Freshman: Lines up for an hour to buy his textbooks in the
    first week.
    Senior: Starts to think about buying textbooks in
    October...maybe.

    Freshman: Is proud of his A+ on Calculus I mid-term.
    Senior: Is proud of not ~quite~ failing Complex Analysis
    mid-term.

    Freshman: Calls his girlfriend back home every other night.
    Senior: Calls Domino's every other night.

    Freshman: Is appalled at the class size and callousness of profs.
    Senior: Is appalled that the campus deli closed down.

    Freshman: Is excited about the world of possibilities that awaits
    him, the unlimited vista of educational
    opportunies and the chance to expand
    one's horizons and really make a contribution
    to society.
    Senior: Is excited about the new dryers in the laundry room.

    Freshman: Takes meticulous four-color notes in class.
    Senior: Meticulously quotes professor when
    he says something funny in class (when awake
    in class and not skating).

    Loved it
    I remember when I first started nursing school, I just about freaked out when I saw students munching down on stuff in class. Now I do it too.

    I think Mt. Dew is the most popular drink in my class. When we are in clinicals, the volunteers at the hospital bring around a cart with snacks, soda, etc. Everyone anxiously awaits this "Dew Cart". They don't have it in the soda machines, just on the snack cart. :chuckle

    but what is Mountain Drew? I have never heard of it before.
    Thanks

    Mt. Dew is a soft drink with lots of caffeine. Helps keep us up when we need to stay up late.
