College is a time to explore yourself and the world around you. It's about figuring out what you and life are all about. But let's be honest, our standards during college were relatively low. So many of the things that happened back then go into our personal "lock boxes" never to be spoken of again.

Until now!

Awful? Or pure JEAN-ius?

Binging on some sugary, caffeinated, alcoholic monstrosity.

Original Four Loko anyone?

Beer bonging it up.

Painting your body up for the big game.


Our bodies all looked a lot better back then.
