What's the biggest "inside joke" on your campus?

    ^^Hahaha I want a shirt that has that first quote, but I have yet to see them be sold.

    Although I have to disagree with the "what guys say" one. Being that some of us choose to be single, would that mean that we choose to be handicapped? But still, it's a clever quote.

    don't know if we go to the same school or not but:

    girls say- The odds are good but the goods are odd.

    Hm, let's see...

    We've got a building called the Wang Center with an enormous phallic tower on top, and a SAC (stands for student activities center, pronounced "sack") with two ballrooms.

    The pizza's so good it's worth committing armed robbery for (the "gun" turned out to be an overzealous security guard's hallucination, but we only found that out after they put the whole campus on alert and locked some buildings down... the pizza really is awesome, though!)

    But of course, the definition of an "inside joke" means that they're not that funny if you're not from that school :P

    :( One of my good friends goes to Case, and she's damn sexy.

    Pseudonym, our campus center is called the Wang, too! And we have a building called the Clapp and Munger (look it up on urban dictionary, it's horrible).

    Pseudonym we have a SAC too, student activities center, its the closest thing we have to a gym and it is nasty, sweaty, un-airconditioned, and sticky XD.

    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.

    beanieboo, actually I am a Bryn Mawr student, but I think we are referring to the same duck pond :)

    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."
