  • (obnoxious munching)

  • Oh, that's the worst.

  • Oh my god.

  • (laughing)

  • (student) Any chance you could not sit right exactly behind me?

  • (pranker) Oh, I'm sorry.

  • - (stifled laughter) - Was I too close?

  • - I would slap that guy. - (pranker) Sorry about that.

  • - (slurps loudly) - (cracks up)

  • (loud crunching)

  • You aren't supposed to eat in a library. Oh god.

  • I don't like that guy.

  • (quiet laughter)

  • - I wanna do this. - (loud slurping)

  • - Oh go-- I'm getting annoyed just sitting... - (pranker belches)

  • ..here and I'm not even there.

  • (smacking lips noisily)

  • (snickers) That girl in the back now.

  • - (loud munching) - (laughs)

  • (laughing) That carrot!

  • Who eats a carrot?

  • (pranker) I can't study without a good snack.

  • (laughs)

  • - (loud munching) - Is that a head of lettuce in his hand?!

  • Oh, come on.

  • (in video) Hmm?

  • - You gonna sit here? - Yeah.

  • - Then I'm moving. - (laughs)

  • I would slap that guy so hard.

  • (students chatter)

  • Oh, I've seen this! It's awesome.

  • Good afternoon, I'm Dr. Hafensteiner

  • and I'll be your professor for Chemistry 131.

  • This class is extremely hard.

  • - Last year, 55% of this class failed. - (students gasp)

  • I would freak out.

  • (professor) Are any of you interested in going to med school,

  • by a show of hands?

  • (professor) At all.

  • (professor) If you want to just-- I do these little demonstrations.

  • If you could just stand up.

  • Okay, everyone on the left-hand section and the middle section sit down.

  • - (in video) What?! - Oh my god.

  • (students murmur in disbelief)

  • (professor) Take a look at the proportion of who's still standing--

  • that's the proportion of people who made it to medical school.

  • That's crazy.

  • - (professor) Laptops and cell phones... - That was terrifying to me

  • 'cause I want to go to med school.

  • (professor) ..I don't like them in class.

  • This is so mean!

  • He's already stressing these kids out on their first day.

  • (professor) So if you have a laptop, please put it away.

  • This is evil!

  • I would run out of that class so fast.

  • Okay, let's get started with a little--

  • (real professor) Who the-- who the hell are you?

  • What?

  • Oh...

  • - (real professor) Who are you? - OH!

  • Oh, shoot!

  • Is he not the teacher? He's not the teacher!

  • (laughing) Oh my god.

  • That was awesome. That is a good prank.

  • I love that. He's like, "Who the hell are you?"

  • (cracking up)

  • Oh, this is the patience test guy.

  • (in video: growling)

  • - (in video: alarm blares) - I saw the first one.

  • (loudly) Hey, let's go on a safari! Hoo!

  • If my roommate did this, I would kill her.

  • (in video) Today, you look like a star.

  • (chuckling) Wow, he has great focus.

  • (laughing)

  • How are you putting up with that?!

  • Ahh, see, he smiled. (laughs)

  • Sir, I can't even explain how good your hair looks right now, man!

  • (deranged screaming)

  • How does he not hate him?

  • "He was a good sport and he passed."

  • Seriously, he should get a plaque for this.

  • (chuckles)

  • Oh my gosh. (laughs)

  • Oh no!

  • (in video: snickering)

  • They're, like, really good friends.

  • Like, REALLY good friends.

  • (laughing) Oh, those were good.

  • ♪ (punk rock music) ♪

  • (Finebros) So let's put yourself in these scenarios.

  • If you're in the library and someone started eating really loud

  • next to you, what do you think you would do?

  • I would start cracking up.

  • I would start laughing because it was so funny.

  • I'd probably take their food and throw it.

  • I'm nice, so I probably wouldn't say anything.

  • I'd pretend like I could be confrontational and be like,

  • "Listen!"

  • But, really, I would probably get up and storm off.

  • (Finebros) In the professor prank, how would you have felt

  • when you realized you were just listening to some guy

  • and not the professor?

  • It would frustrate me.

  • I would have thought it was hilarious, like, genius!

  • I would be confused, but also relieved.

  • I wouldn't even believe the next guy being the professor.

  • I would be like, "Who else is coming?"

  • (Finebros) And, finally, if you had a roommate that was testing

  • your patience like that, what do you think you would do to him?

  • I don't know.

  • I would park their car in a no-parking zone and get it towed.

  • I would just be like, "You know what? This isn't gonna work anymore

  • and I'm going to the library and I will sit through those people

  • chewing loudly."

  • (Finebros) So all of these revolved around college settings.

  • Do you plan to go to college?

  • Community, then transfer.

  • Yes, I want to go to college really bad!

  • Yes, and I would like to study medicine or pre-med.

  • (Finebros) And are you currently in college?

  • Yeah, I'm in college.

  • Yes.

  • I'm in my first year.

  • I just finished my second year.

  • I am currently a Communications Studies major.

  • I'm a pre-med bio-chem major with a minor in Political Science.

  • (Finebros) And what are you going through in terms

  • of getting prepared to go to college?

  • Well, I gotta take my SAT.

  • And then I gotta study for that too.

  • Yeah, I had [bleep] storm of papers...(laughs),

  • basically, and a bunch of essays saying,

  • "Hey, this is why you should let me in."

  • (moaning) Oh much!

  • Especially too if you're the first in your family to go into college.

  • You have no idea what's going on, so you're just kind of listening,

  • keeping an ear out to what you're supposed to be even doing.

  • (Finebros) What was the experience like for you

  • when you were in high school and it was time to apply to college?

  • Okay, for me, that was the most stressful thing.

  • The college application process was not a fun time.

  • You have to write an essay.

  • 18 years of your life comes down to 600 words.

  • It's a very critical decision making time of your life

  • and it's weird because it's like you're so young

  • and you have this big life choice to make.

  • Thankfully, I had a really good counselor.

  • The best thing is to start as early as possible.

  • (Finebros) And how important is a college education to you?

  • I mean, very important considering the fact

  • that I wanna go to law school.

  • In terms of medicine, it's pretty much everything.

  • (laughter) I don't really have any other choice.

  • It's good for job opportunities, and it's also good, I think,

  • just for personal growth.

  • I just feel like I'm supposed to because everybody else does it

  • and that's the only way to get a decent job,

  • or at least that's the way it seems.

  • My parents didn't have college degrees and they're fine in their jobs,

  • but now you absolutely need a college degree to get a good job.

  • You just have to be passionate about what you're gonna do

  • and if college is in that equation to make it easier for you

  • to reach your goal, then I think you should go to college.

  • (Finebros) And what's your impression of the cost of college?

  • I think it's way too expensive.

  • I know a lot of people who are actually thinking of dropping out

  • because it's so hard for them to actually pay for college

  • and that's just wrong.

  • My aunts, they're still in college debt.

  • My parents are like, "No, we've got this. We'll figure it out."

  • But I'm like, "No, I don't want you spending all of this money on me."

  • (Finebros) And what about things like financial aid or student loans?

  • You have any information about how that works?

  • Not
