Life at BYU

BYU is an alternate universe that doesn't make sense. I often tell Tanya about things I see there that I think are normal because I have been there for 4 years and she says "Why do you go to school there?" or "wait, what century is it?"

I have had to start taking pictures of things I see to prove that they're real. Apparently so have a lot of other people - I recently found the Facebook group "Seen @ BYU" and it's just witch-hunted pictures of the strange goings-on that happen on campus or in Provo. This has only been a group for about 2 days, but I already have some favorites (along with their original captions).

I saw this in the HBLL (library), but It was moved before too long.

I think if you did post this anywhere outside our happy little valley, the immediate response would be something like, "Lower kingdoms? What the H*!! does that mean?"

Guy caught brushing his girlfriend's hair on campus. They weren't talking which made it creepier.

I've heard of people renting prom dresses, but seriously? Really, BYU?

I was sitting outside the library one day when I turned my head and saw a couch coming toward me! It was on electric wheels! A couple was sitting nice and relaxed on it and had a remote that was steering them around

Helaman Halls never fails to produce high-caliber hoodlums.

Are You? (I see stuff like this all the time there - guilting the crap out of people with scripture references)

Wilk-Spoonin: Sometimes you gotta be creative, and sometimes you gotta be sick.

This is what happens when a semester at BYU finishes: Bridal Guides disappear into thin air.

HAHAHA! I love this!! BYU is such a strange place! I worked several EFY sessions at BYU as a counselor and definitely saw some weird things and worked with some interesting counselors that were BYU students. Did you know that wearing a two piece swimsuit makes you a bad person??? :) It is a special place....

Erin said...

I just about died laughing at this. classic. just, classic. I have to ask the same questions though... Why do you go to that school? It's just not worth it.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaha!That seriously made me laugh so hard! I rolled my eyes and Freeman gut cackled more that 5 years than any in my life. And people wondered why I found it strange since I was already from Utah. I may be from Utah, but SLC is NOT NOT NOT like Happy Valley. Not at all. My mom-in-law still doesn't believe me, and probably never will.

p.s. The brushing the hair? What were they both thinking? and the butt spooning. Give me a break. My two favs.
