While I didn’t enjoy high school very much, I absolutely LOVED the years that I spent at university! I have so many funny stories about the things that happened during those days!
When I heard about the premise for the new TNT series, Glory Daze, it appealed to me because it reminds me of my school years! According to TNT, “GLORY DAZE follows the fun — and awkward — misadventures of four freshmen as they navigate college life, trying to figure out who they are and who they want to be. Joel (Kelly Blatz) is a typical guy next door who is determined to keep his focus on pre-med, at least until he meets his unattainable dream girl, Christie (Julianna Guill). Eli (Matt Bush) is a virgin who desperately wants to be cool. Jason (Drew Seeley) is a buttoned-downed conservative, attached at the hip to his preppy girlfriend. Brian (Hartley Sawyer) is a star baseball player struggling to get out of his father’s shadow. Together, the guys agree to check out fraternity houses, finally coming to the steps of Omega Sigma, where they are greeted by pledge recruiter Mike (Callard Harris). Intrigued by the fraternity’s cool factor, their fate is sealed. They begin a journey that will make a lifetime of memories.”
How fun is that?!?!
My two most memorable experiences involve residence life (which is similar to living in a frat house I would guess!) and life after residence! I remember playing Trivial Pursuit in our Student Lounge until all hours of the night and some VERY serious players almost getting into a physical altercation when they disagreed about an answer – they were so angry and the rest of us were laughing so hard we were almost crying! When I moved into a house with some of my friends, we had even more fun! We found a box of photos and letters from a previous tenant in our basement and we made it our mission to find the owner of this stuff – and we did! He actually came to pick up his stuff and visit with us – it was really cool to meet someone else who had lived the student life in the house where we were living!
