Oh Liberty. It’s a special college with its own little quirks. It takes its students on a roller coaster of emotions. Absolutely any LU student will be able to identify with the following situations. So here are 10 GIFs that accurately describe what it’s like to be a student at Liberty University!
1. When curfew is in two minutes, and you’re across campus.
It’s no secret that Liberty University has a curfew. Depending on how chill your RA is determines your reaction to this predicament. Unfortunately for us regular students, most RA’s take curfew as serious as God takes sin (which is pretty serious).
2. When convocation is in 15 minutes, but you’re wanting some extra sleep.
We’ve all been there. Maybe the convo speaker for today doesn’t interest you, maybe they’re too political for your liking, or maybe you just want some extra sleep. Whatever the reason, we are all constantly debating whether skipping is worth those extra points and fine.
3. Two words: Fire. Drills.
If you live in the commons (which I don’t), you know this all too well. Whether you’re sleeping, studying, or hanging out with friends, a sudden interruption from a fire drill is nothing less than annoying. Especially if it is something stupid enough like trying to cook cookies in a microwave.
4. When your required Gen-Ed course is only offered at 8:15 in the morning.
This past semester I had an 8:15 lecture or lab. Every. Single. Day. I survived, and I promise you will too.
5. When the ROT closes unexpectedly.
Or any of the dining options, for that matter. Whether it’s the last few days of exams, or some sort of break, when the food places close, students get hangry. Simple as that.
6. When blackboard crashes at 11:50, and you have a paper due at midnight.
We’ve all been here as well. We told ourselves we wouldn’t procrastinate; we’d get the assignment done early. Yet here we are, at 11:55 pm trying to submit our paper, and that good for nothing blackboard will not load.
7. When Jerry shows up to convocation.
Alright. You’re one of two people when Jerry shows up to convo.
To put it plain and simple: you either love President Falwell, or you don’t.
8. When there are no parking spaces left.
Yes, Liberty has a 30 million dollar athletic facility that opened up, and yes, they have multiple state of the art lecture halls that fill students daily. But do you know what they don’t have? They don’t have parking.
9. Another two words: Open. Dorms.
Now I know nothing can happen because the RA’s are patrolling the rooms. But…there’s a boy (or girl) in your room.
10. And finally: Hall Meetings.
Can we all just agree that the information given in hall meetings could just be sent out into an email?
