21 Things You'll *Only* Understand If You Studied At Symbiosis Pune

When you leave the comfort of your home for college, there are a series of (mixed) emotions you go through. You're struggling to live away from your school besties, distraught about leaving the comfort of your parents' home and ecstatic about all that freedom. But when you decide you're studying at Symbiosis University...that experience is slightly different. Read on for things you'll only know if you studied at Symbiosis University in Pune.

1. There is a tapri outside the college that serves up steamier gossip than chai.

2. Getting a TNG (term-not-granted) feels worse than a break-up. 

3. The scandals from the fresher's party will be discussed years after you have graduated. 

4. Getting a warning letter is the scariest threat a professor can give you. 

5. There are at least three couples that started dating in the first week of college and broke up before the first semester got over.

6. Pune's Burger King is where you eat when you're broke.

13. In fact, the person who seems to have missed you the most is the guy at the local booze shop. 

14. By the third semester you realise, getting a 'backlog' is no big deal. Even the topper of the batch has one.

20. There is a bigger batch reunion at the backlog exams than at the graduation.
