First up college is like life, you’ll get a few hard knocks. But it’s also the best place to ditch being a kid and actually be an adult. And guess what, being and adult can be fun. Face it life’s good, you’re out of your parents’ house, you can do pretty much what you want provided you meet the grades and the pressure to get that great career can still be pushed away for a couple of years.

And a college that makes your dreams come true and all of the above possible, is one which wakes you up and makes you think big! At Lovely Professional University (LPU) your creative energies will be nurtured.

So here’s the drill on making that college life of yours epic.

Since you’re penniless most of the time, you’ve got to make sweet deals. This is where you learn to hustle with the canteen walley bhaiyya in giving you an extra helping of rajma. It helps to get the hostel warden on your side, late night parties and no deadline sound like sweet music eh? Oh and the Xerox walley bhaiyya too, for all those notes to copy and last minute projects.

Find the most unusual spots on campus for chai and conversations. The highest roof top or behind the basketball courts and even unused staircases. Oh and if your college has a go-karting track like LPU then you’ve landed yourself a sweet place.

Friends with benefits, got your dirty mind ticking big time right? Friends with benefits isn’t such a bad thing when you make friends with people who take you out of your comfort zone. Surprise yourself by chatting up that exchange student. BTW did you know that LPU has exchange students from UK, Singapore, Brazil and Ghana?

Pull an all-nighter before the term exams. Because well you were having too much fun. It’ll test your brain power and make you challenge your caffeine tolerance levels.

Put that war paint on and go cheer for your college sports team like its judgement day. Nothing spells loyalty and team spirit that a gang of supporters rooting for you. Get some street cred for your college.

College makes you focus on priorities like whether to get that haircut instead of buying six packets of those two minute noodles. Nothing like a slim wallet to make you value the best things in college.

Learn some party throwing skills like a boss. It takes brains and brawn to fit in thirty uninvited guests at a dorm party and it certainly takes some serious economics to stretch the budget to include pizza, drinks and the DJ. Skills which you can totally tout later in life.

Unusual food combinations. Need we say more? Why should no money & the midnight munchies come in the way of a near expiry date packet of chips and chocolate sauce. Ever tried eating both?

Hopefully you’ll take one class and actually enjoy it and not hit the snooze button on your alarm every morning. Oh and also try not to Google EVERYTHING.
