Earlier this week, Ole Miss freshmen Lindy Goodson and Abbey Bozeman went viral after sharing pictures of their dorm room on campus. While the two's dorm is perhaps a bit over the top and about as #OleMissShit as you may find on the internet, Slate bit back with real teeth, going so far as to call the decor "offensive." Word?
Still, though, Goodson and Bozeman -- and, we suppose, Slate -- prompted an interesting conversation Wednesday afternoon concerning the most memorable feats of dorm life in University, Miss. Your responses consistently bordered on the unsanitary, the drunken, and the savage. In short, freshman year of college dorm life.
Red Cup's star tweeter, The Ghost of Jay Cutler, was kind enough to retweet your tales of life away from home, cooped up with hundreds of other 18 and 19 year olds with too much time and not enough dedication to homework. These are their stories.
