42 Bizarre College Experiences

From Lebron James' Censorship to Student Designed Supercars

— July 9, 2009 — Social Good
College can be a rough time for some, including Lebron James (yes he’s not God, contrary to popular belief). While others have memorable and cherished memories from college, Lebron James never actually attended (drafted out of high school…poor guy).

It’s thanks to the people who went to college that we can put together this collection of amazing college experiences that encompass everything from student designed supercars to dorm light shows and even bizarre mascots. So, for Lebron James’ sake (because his college experience was getting dunked on by some freshman and then erasing the footage) here are 45 one-of-a-kind college experiences.
