    Yeah, we have a SAC too, but after like the first week, no one really laughs about it anymore.

    I can't really think of anything here outside of the fact that it's automatically assumed by everyone that everyone else is poor (I'm not). Or Liberal (I'm not). Ummm there's a certain Chinese restaurant that everyone goes to when they're drunk.

    Everyone laughs, because we're always told how diverse we are (one of the five or so most diverse schools in the U.S.). It's not that it's untrue, it's that it's something continuously repeated to us.

    There's probably something I dont know/can't remember. I've only been here for just over a semester.

    At BU, there's the jogger down Commonwealth and reported sightings on Facebook, and not a joke, but everyone at BU (and plenty elsewhere) know about the West Campus Burger. God, I miss that :/

    Heh, it's not the fact that it's called the SAC that I find funny, it's that it's a SAC with two ballrooms.

    At Carnegie they used to sell shirts that said "Sex kills. Come to CMU and live forever." :)
    They were kinda right on point too (unless you were in the arts; the rest of us just assumed that was one big orgy ;) I mean at one point, I kid you not, there was a class where part of your grade depended on proving you had/could make friends.

    Ooo, there are some great nicknames for a few of the colleges too.
    -Humanities and Social Sciences (commonly refered to as H&SS) = H & Less Stress
    -College of Fine Arts (generally called CFA) = Cant *****ing Spell (or Add, depending on who you ask)

    Theres also a thing about one of the buildings being Optimus Prime...

    One of the buildings at UCD is nicknamed the "Death Star."

    Grinnell's biggest inside jokes are probably "yellow bikes" and "foam machine".

    Years ago, at U. of Virginia, whenever a tourist asked for directions, they were told "it's the red brick building with the white pillars, you can't miss it."

    (That described 90% of the buildings on grounds, and about 10% of the buildings in the town. It even describes the 20,000 seat arena.)

    Here it's probably references to the decommissioned submarine that is allegedly buried underneath the campus.

    Thomas Cooper is really famous for getting around a lot. A lot of girls spend the night at his place and have study dates with him. (TC is the library.)

    And of course... Our mascot is the Gamecock, so we have lots of jokes about ***** and t-shirts and things like that.

    We always say "Go *****!" on our facebook statuses, and a lot of kids are from up north (we're almost half out-of-state), and they always have friends who comment and are like "You seriously say that?" or "That's offensive!" or "Did you get hacked?"

    People often say they're going out on a date with Homer. That's the name of our library.
