Catching mice and having them race after pouring accelerants on them and lighting them on fire to run in the quad. Having to paint a mouse named "Mr. Jingles" everyday and it was an inspectable item. Upperclassmen making me floss the teeth of a racoon. Yeah it was military college. Another time I told a group of freshmen that I was going to "run the shit out of them" one day and one guy actually shit his pants in that run. He had to be taken to the hospital and I almost got in trouble for that.

Yeah my 1SG was a marine and saw the raccoon and of course had his 9mm on him and shot it and threw it on my floor.

I came back from dinner and the raccoon was on my floor with a pool of blood around it. He kicked in the door right after my roommate and I got back and was like "what the f are you doing with a raccoon on your floor?!?!" He tried to make me brush its teeth with my toothbrush, but I refused. Gotta draw the line somewhere.

Pretentious? My friend would start shit with people at the bars then yell "Do you know who his dad is" in reference to me. Laughed my ass off every time (and no I'm not from a rich family or anything he did it to fuck with people).

Also, hooping at the rec center and this Saudi lost a game so he pulls out his insta and shows how he's rich. Dude was legit part of the royal family and had falcons and a gold plated car. He had good handles but was a terrible teammate.

Crazy? Just typical drunk people stuff. Saw multiple cars drive into a fountain near my apartment as it was a street that ended and you could turn left or right. At least 3 I remember that drove straight into the fountain. One was a jacked up truck that was stuck for over a month - fountain still ran every day too lol

In college I studied abroad in Spain and went to Italy with these two chicks in my program. They took their shirts off for a bareback massage and I went to work on deep tissue massage, but then had too much Grappa and passed out lol oops -

Crazy/ pretentious? They don't exactly relate. Actually they probably have a -1 correlation. The more pretentious the situation the LESS crazy it's going to be. Don't understand the angle of the post.

Craziest? Just drugs probably. A guy I knew got arrested off of dropping bars and walking around peoples backyards looking into windows and peeing while trying to find his friends house.

A roommate of mine destroyed the apartment.

we were mad and went to wake him up- he shut the door with his head and started peeing in the corner of his carpeted room. We through a glass of water on his naked body minutes later and he didn't wake up…. He went out with us an hour later to the bars.

Heard stories of people smashing in the basements of a bar in the back room - often.

Idk

Ah, this brings back the pledging memories. The only thing I never forgot was my 'mistake' during hell week. My punishment was that I had to wear a Speedo and go out on our lawn during peak class-changing hours.

My pledgemaster (sorry… 'new member educator') then shot a series of Roman candles at me, while l dodged 'em. Not big enough for our campus to get a bomb threat, but not small enough to be painless. Some fun times - think I had the equivalent of 50+ cig burns on me. To this day I have no idea how that didn't get him fucked, 2009 was a wild time even from now. Gotta love Greek life eh?

Wasn't always that bad. I'll admit, looking back on it that it pledging is stupid as hell. However, the friends that I made throughout those four years were unbeatable and I met so many great folks and connections that I still keep in touch with to this day. The side part of being able to get into any party or event you'd like was also nice!

Wish I could give you some Blue Mountain State-type story, but honestly can't say we've had any of those. I do think the 'wildest' story I could recollect was a toga party from my sophomore year, had it at one of our satellite houses. We prepped the hell out of this one, spent a couple of weeks doing marketing promos & coordinating with local PD and/or neighbors to let them know what was going to happen. Backyard was completely retrofitted, had a live band booked, a catering company for bringing in a wet bar, and hired private security teams to check IDs (couldn't serve under-21s for an event this size... way too much liability). Honestly, when most people think 'fraternity party' all they think of is a sea of white douchebags bobbing their heads at Fetty Wap (at the time, keep in mind this is 2010 LOL), but I was surprised at the level of organization at this event.Β 

Kicked it off with a daydrink-style event, limited it to brothers & two girls only. That rule wasn't really followed, we wanted to keep it around 300 people during the day just so they wouldn't spill out into the road and cause trouble. Security teams hadn't gotten there yet, so we had pledges and NIBs checking doors and authorization lists. Had a couple of random dudes somehow talk their way in, they got booted instantly after a little argument. The daytime went pretty smooth, and I remember around 4:30p I went home to drink some water, attempt to pull this absolute smoke of a chick (spoiler: I didn't) and rest up for the night. When I left, I'd say there were probably 200 or so people there, and I was gonna come back around 6:30 before the sun went down.Β 

I took a nap and overslept a bit, woke up around 7p. Got in the shower, downed about six shots by myself (probably some shit Burnett's... broke college kid life) and headed back. This is probably around 7:45 or so, I was expecting maybe 150-250 people upon arrival. I was wrong. It was a god damn madhouse. I'm not exaggerating when I'd estimate close to 600 people throughout the space, cramming 200 or so in the backyard, another 100 peppered throughout the house, 200 in the front yard, and the rest just spilling out into the street. My immediate thought wasΒ "yeah this is gonna get shut down in about ten minutes"Β so I figured I'd have to make what I can. Since I was a brother at the time, I got to skip the line and show my wristband - very nice.Β 

Party never got popped. Shit was wild. Live band was phenomenal, someone had smoked a pig or something in the backyard and was serving barbeque, the security kept it all in check. I think at one point there was a "brawl" but it was just between like four dudes and was over in thirty seconds. Mediocre watch, I'd hazard it at a 4/10. Around 2am, when I can no longer operate my legs, I think that's when enough neighbors complained that they had to boot everyone. To my surprise, 2am strong there were still at least 350 people there. I think many were horizontal, LOL. I told some chick she could take me home at like 10:30p and then never saw her past like 10:37 so that was less-than-ideal, but there ya have it. Great night!

Yeah.....sounds exactly like my college experience except that I didn't have to be hazed or pay money to an organization every month.

3 Couples having sex in the same room. At the time there were three couples who just fucked in the same room from time to time and everyone knew it. No swapping or shit, just each doing their own thing, but in the same room. Some people are weird.Β

Not the craziest but it was like the second or third week in the dorms freshman year. My roommate brought some girl back from a party and banged her in the bathroom. Turns out she was on her period and got her blood all over the communal bathroom.Β

WolfofWSO, what's your opinion? Comment below:

I worked public service (rent a cop) at my school and saw some stuff. Saddest things I ever saw were suicides; had to help with half a dozen of those. Never will forget a welfare check I had to do in the dorms and opened the door to find a young man hanging from the sprinkler pipe.

Girls would request escorts around campus to feel safe. I liked being that trusted gentleman and most were very appreciative and polite.

There were the typical drunk idiots I had to write up. Nothing noteworthy. It was almost always entitled freshman/sophomores who would push the envelop. We all knew dorm drinking happened, just don't be completely unruly and actually the music down the first time we ask. When we come back a second time, it was always a pain.

Nastiest was what appeared to be a struggle in the backseat of a car in the freshman parking lot. I pull up and discover it's two young men. I see if there is a problem, and they say no, this is consensual. I tell them to get dressed and move along.
