At this point we’ve accredited that we’re going to be paying for personal unimpressive bachelors degrees until my spouse and i die. At the very least it feels that way. Every one payment hurts, and what hurts a lot of is that it’s just a drop active in the damn bucket. But at least we not alone. These student loan tweets incredibly speak to our debt-ridden and depressed asses.
Louisiana State University recently tweeted photos of their insanely fancy football locker rooms which reportedly cost them $28 million to renovate. Louisiana is one of the most impoverished states in the country and the tweet had people asking why the school wasn’t making more of an effort to put that money toward education, or at the very least paying the athletes.
Here are some of the reaction tweets.
If you’re not familiar with what “manspreading” is, it’s the stereotype that men tend to take up more space than necessary in public spaces by spreading their legs. Women, on the other hand, are stereotyped as trying to take up as little space as possible by crossing their legs or keeping them tightly closed.
A student at the University of Brighton was fed up with dudes taking up too much room on the bus so she created an art project called the “Manspreading Chair,” which forces men to keep their legs closed.
Whether or not you believe manspreading is a cultural problem, you gotta admit that the whole thing is pretty effing meme-able!
Congratulations, grads! You’re now entering the real world, which means you’ll be enjoying some delicious instant noodles daily and crying over countless job-application rejections!
In all seriousness though, congrats on your achievement – getting through school isn’t easy and we really wish that college graduates were more appreciated in our world today. You know, with jobs and stuff…
If you’re old and aren’t familiar with what “Kahoot” is, it’s a user-generated educational quiz game played by students all over the world. Once a student creates a quiz, aka a “Kahoot,” it generates a pin number that others can enter into their computers or mobile devices in order to join in. A trivia question with four multiple-choice answers pops up on a communal screen and players can pick their answer.
As you can probably guess, students go nuts over this game – probably because it’s a hell of a lot more interesting than sitting in class listening to a boring-ass teacher talk for an hour!
There are SO MANY fricking math puns we could make right now, but we’ll spare you the annoyance. Before we go off on too much of a tangent about math puns, please enjoy these dumb math memes that would make any mathematician giggle like a little school girl. Why? Just cos.
We’ve finally made it to May! Do you know what that means? Yeah, summer is “around the corner,” but before everyone can sit back and relax, there are millions of stressed students getting ready for the absolute hell that is finals week. Between the cramming, working for pennies, and internships, it is to be expected that mental health is at an all time low. Fortunately for our scholars, we have some memes here that will remind the study-addled that they’re not alone.
We think that anyone should be able to practice whatever religion they want, but we have to say that sometimes religious rules go a little far. That was definitely the case at this fundamentalist Baptist college, where they censored the nudity out of classical paintings. The results are a giant fail, but also effing hilarious.
Some people are just more delusional than we can ever fathom. Like this guy, for example. It’s not a secret in this day and age that college tuition isn’t even remotely affordable for most, but this guy went out of his way on Twitter to try to explain how he supposedly managed to pay his own way through his education.
Twitter users, however, dug up some of his old tweets, and let’s just say that he wasn’t being especially truthful…
If you went to college, then you’ll likely recall having to respond to incredibly stupid assumptions about your field of study. Every single major has its fair share of stereotypes, and these tweets, also known as “What’s Your Degree In?” make light of that in an amusing way. And in the end it doesn’t even matter, because who even gets a job in the field they studied anyway?
Literally any person who has been a student ever will remember the horrors of the scantron exam. If you aren’t familiar for whatever reason, the scantron is a multiple-choice-style exam format that gets graded by a machine. People on Twitter have been meme-ing the scantron format by adding in their own sarcastic answers, and we’re here for it.
College students: whether you’re right in the middle of your semester or about to start cramming your a$$ off for finals, we’re betting that these memes will resonate with you. You’re probably stressed out one way or another, so we hope memes can help you relax for a brief moment.
Happy studying to everyone except…ahem… certain people whose celebrity parents bought their way into school.
In light of this week’s clusterf*ck of a news story involving a bunch of rich celebrities bribing their spoiled kids’ ways into the nation’s top colleges, people on Twitter are parodying the situation by highlighting the satirical ways that they themselves were admitted into college, without relying on trust funds from stupidly wealthy parents. Anyone who’s endured the trials and tribulations of college applications, pulling study all-nighters, and crippling student debt will be able to relate to these tweets hardcore.
Are y’all ready for a mess of a news story? Lori Loughlin, AKA Aunt Becky from Full House, was taken into custody this morning for participating in a huge college admissions sting to get her completely unqualified daughter admitted into the University of Southern California. Several other wealthy celebrities were involved, including Desperate Housewives‘ Felicity Huffman and her husband William H. Macy.
Charges so far include $25 million in bribes to university authorities and fabrication of credentials to be admitted into some of the top universities in the nation.
Some have pointed out that Loughlin’s daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli, would never have been admitted to USC on her own academic merit. Giannulli, a prominent beauty YouTuber, even admitted in a video back in August that she plans to focus more on college parties than her classes.
Under the monikers #FreeAuntBecky and #CollegeAdmissionScandal, many memers and Twitter users have expressed their frustration at the situation, pointing out that regular people have to get admitted to universities on actual academic merit and not absurdly rich parents.

Whether you’re in school, out of school, or teaching school, these memes are sure to hit pretty damn close to home. For us, the days of bullshitting have just shifted from doin’ it for free to doing it for our paltry wages. We all have to grow up at some point.
Whether you’ve been out of school for years or are desperately waiting for your high school or college graduation, these memes will definitely hit you where it hurts. Toiling away for some promise of a future isn’t always rewarding, but at least we have the memes to remind us that we’re anything but alone.
