College Students Get Real About “The Craziest Thing” They Witnessed In Their Dorms (15 Posts)

Oh, college. Some truly weird stuff happens there. We’ve all got stories about that guy who passed out in the shower and flooded the bathroom, or the famous musician who was supposed to play a concert for the school but wandered into your house high and wouldn’t leave, or the naked run in which everyone just ran around in a circle naked for…a good cause?

On Reddit, folks are sharing their craziest college stories. Buckle up, there’s some chaos ahead that could only happen on campus. 


“I had some friends cut down a Christmas tree from campus somewhere and put it up in their dorm room. The only thing is, real Christmas trees are not allowed because they’re a crazy fire hazard…They bought one of those things you would put a live plant in (a planter?), some 90 degree brackets, and some screws and screwed the tree down. Then they built a false top and sprinkled dirt and rocks (again taken from campus) on it to make it look like the tree was planted in dirt. They convinced our RA that they had an uncle who had a tree farm and allowed them to dig up a real tree to use for the year. My absolute favorite part is that they returned the saw they used to Walmart.” — TellemSteve-Dave


“Lived in a 21 floor tower, something like 1600 students lived in it. 4 guys decided to have a jam session in an elevator and go up and down the building – had drums, guitar, saxophone, and vocalist. I think every single floor wanted to murder them.” — peanutbuttersucks


“I was an RA. I had 8 residents trap a raccoon and bring it into their dorm to ‘domesticate’ it. Guess what happens when you let a Raccoon in the dorm? It fucks shit up.” — StannisIsTheMannis


“My dorm had a Secret Santa thing where your Santa would give you a task to do, and if you completed it, you’d get a gift. In the packed dining hall one night shortly before Christmas break, a huge, hairy, completely naked man jumps onto a table, tucks his junk between his legs, and screams ‘daddy only likes me when I’m a little girl!’ My roommate was his Santa, and as a reward for completing the task, she gave him a teddy bear wearing overalls.” — Pendrell_Crush


“One guy peed on a cookie sheet and let it freeze outside in winter. He took said frozen sheet of pee and slid it under another guy’s door when he wasn’t there. All the rooms in that dorm were carpeted.” — ironmaven


“One day I woke up to a sink sitting in the hallway. Like a sink that is built into a counter top or something. Someone must have just ripped a sink out of a counter top, from a different building, and put it in the hallway…on the fourth floor.” — Smalls_Biggie


“I was a sophomore at University of Iowa, on the engineering dorm. The problem was that the main cafeteria of the campus was downstairs, so drunk people would get confused and wander to it even though it was closed, then start having fun on other floors. It was Saturday night and pretty miserable outside so most people were staying in, when we heard a scream, then a loud crack. When we checked on it, there was nobody in the hallway. There was, however, a large smear of blood along the wall, and the exit sign was broken. One of the guys decided to investigate and found a huge guy in the bathroom, bleeding from the face and drunk. Turns out he had the brilliant idea of running down the hallway, leaping into the air, and headbutting the exit sign.” — TheBrianJ


“One time, my roommate and i hatched quails in our dorm room. We started out with growing plants, then breeding betta fish, and from there we kind of escalated to birds. Ordered a cheap incubator and the eggs online, and kept it in the corner of our room without having any real hope that any of them would hatch. Three of them did…somehow…and they lived in our dorm room for a whole year without the ra finding out. helps that they only grow to be about three inches tall.” — spoodr


“My college divided the dorms into ‘houses’ the idea being that you would do stuff with your house and form a community. The problem was that I already had a group of friends and this community was completely obnoxious. So I went to the first required meeting and then promptly did nothing with them ever again. Fast forward two months and two girls who live down the hall run up to me and ask to take a picture with me which I thought weird but sure. Turns out that it was so uncommon for people in my house to see me that I was an item in a photo scavenger hunt.” — KnightFox


“We had a dude moved onto our hall because his roommate was shitting and pissing in the corner of his room.” — fabioskyschlepper
