Freshman or senior, surviving as an engineering student is no easy feat.  Knee deep in programming, architecture and modeling homework, surviving off ramen noodles and wearing last week’s dirty jeans because there is no time to do laundry are dilemmas all too familiar to engineer students. All the late hours, bad food, struggles and stress to achieve less than perfect scores and mere B’s as final grades.

A Forbes online contributor remembers his years at college, remarking:

“So here I was taking extremely hard courses, working 3x as many hours as my peers for crappier grades.”

Yes, these are the story of our student-engineer lives! It’s crazy, but it’s a means to an end - an extremely rewarding end. Though it may be rough, we learn so much during those formative years, and the lessons are ones that won’t easily be forgotten or traded. All that aside, for now, let’s ignore the first tip listed in the article, “A Guide to College Life as a First-Year Engineering Student” posted on TopUniversities.com. The article starts off with “never procrastinate” but we are going to take a moment to enjoy the lighter side of life - laughter. That being said, let’s kick back and add a little humor to these demanding times, make the going a littler and more bearable.
