Moral of the story: Work as a cook your freshmen year!
I would've LOVED to have been a cook, or known a cook during my first year! Two of my roommates were doing okay, but my one other roommate and I were just scraping by, so our cupboards were pretty empty (our house didn't share food).

Quite a number of the young women did, however. I think that a lot of guys at that age have a metabolism that can withstand anything.

See, the Universities I've attended have charged a ridiculous amount for residence and for meal plans. It is much more affordable to live off campus and to take the bus to school. I didn't know many of the residence kids because all the friends I made were my neighbours off campus... and the majority of us were pretty well wasting away! There was this one BHM who lived next door to us (I had a boyfriend at the time but I had a huuuge crush on this guy too) but he lost a lot of weight as the year went on.
