I don't remember anything cool.

I remember feeling like about 50% my time was wasted there and that I could have learned more studying at home alone. I also remember lots of pointless mandatory fun events and children who couldn't seem to shut up.

Dedicated class/centre for people with disabilities and those with family problems and other issues. It didn't always work but it got a lot of people through school that wouldn't have coped otherwise, so that's cool, more schools should have that.

The mandatory fun events and children that couldn't seem to shut up probably did you more good that you realise. Better than mandatory Catholic mass even for Hindus and Muslims lol

I could get a can of Pepsi for 25 cents. Back than I didn't have a government that could tell me what I can or can not eat or drink. I probably never would have survived high school with out that.

Middle school: Cool music program that landed my choir on TV. Got to stay in 5 star hotels for a weekend (twice), performed at a church and a hockey game, tons of good food. Too many music performances to count, also played in a marching band at a big state fair. End of 8th grade my entire class went to Cape Cod and stayed in a big, nice house. Laser tag, go karting, movies, Blue Man Group in Boston, and shopping in Boston as well. Much, much more cool shit to add about my middle school but that'd be like a book.

My first High school: Soft serve machine and advisory period. Freedom to do whatever I wanted compared to my middle school.

Although, overall, private middle school > public high school

My high school now is garbage. It's like a prison. Poor inner city schools suck balls.

My high school looks like Hogwarts on the outside (according to most people that don't go there) but it's really modern on the inside. The seniors got their own break room and a different tie from all of the other year groups.

Apparently the school got pretty bad after my year group left though

Hmm. I guess the cool thing about my university is that some of our field trips are held in other countries. I mean, you gotta pay for them, but the field trips are very educational (and thus interesting). For example, my course is chemical engineering. We go to various industrial plants (local and abroad) and tour it. If your course is European studies, you get to go to Europe.

The university library also has a bean bag room with board games. And there are a lot of couches on every floor that you can sleep on lol. There's another bean bag room in another building where you can watch movies with a projector.

They also have a range rover as a security patrol car that roams the campus every now and then (eh is this even cool?) (on another side note, i think its hilarious for some reason lol)

...We also have a Power Mac Center inside the campus (I'm really just posting WTF stuff about my university now).
