My Fellow Students Are Unhappy

I attend SUNY Stony Brook — apparently one of the top public universities in the nation (you could have fooled me). The Princeton Review put out their huge college report and out of the 300-some-odd colleges they bothered to cover, Stony Brook has the unhappiest students. Awesome.

It’s pretty funny, as only a week ago, a few buddies and I were standing around, observing the people around us, saying that on any given day, you can tell that 30% of the kids are miserable. They have the “what the hell am I doing here?” look on their faces. One of my firiends said he saw a kid just sitting against a wall with his head in his hands. Stony Brook had obviously broken him.

The high percentage of commuters no doubt has a large effect. Driving on Long Island is sometimes the very definition of Pain City. And I bet many of the students are just unhappy with their overall lives — living at home and knowing deep down that getting a bachelor’s degree froma public university means next to jack shit nowadays. I know how that feels.

  1. So my public university sucks? Hah, I don’t care. College blows and it makes you miserable. Life should consist of video games and sports (of course it does already, but without all the extra shit).

  2. Amen, dude.

    And you’re getting an engineering degree. It counts for something. And there are public schools that matter – just very few. I just can’t imagine Stony Brook being one of them, but apparently it is.
