College is, for most people, one of the best times of their lives. You get to live on your own while someone else (ideally) foots the bill. You get to make new friends, learn new things, and do your best not to kill yourself while taking your first steps into adulthood.

That said, these 13 colleges are apparently intent on teaching their students just how frustrating living on your own can be.

Just see what I mean.

I paid $100 so I could get a username and password delivered in the mail, so I can access assignments that are required and a big part of my grade. I hate being a college student. It arrived 2 weeks late. from mildlyinfuriating
