List Rules Upvote the college pranks that impress you, downvote the practical jokes you think are trivial.

If you didn't involve yourself in any college pranks while you were at whichever middle-college, university, trade school, or community college you attended, then you missed out. College dorm room pranks are some of the greatest institutions we have to honor every year at our actual institutions of higher learning. There aren't as many dorm pranks as there used to be because supervision is A LOT tighter now that everyone knows where everyone is all the time. If there's one thing that the Internet and smartphones have done, it's increasing accountability for dumb people's actions, but hey, college exists. Kids do stupid stuff. 

So in honor of the beginning of the university-going season and to give people some great, funny prank ideas for college, here are some of the best dorm room pranks the Internet has ever seen. 

Upvote the college dorm pranks that would impress you if they happened to you and downvote the trivial ones.
