A “Best Advice To A New Incoming College Freshman” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

My Alma Mater recently asked it’s alum what would be the best advice they could give an incoming freshman student. Of course, they were asking for real, serious and valuable advice. I had some of that for them – EMBRACE THE ADVENTURE. College will be a big part of the story of your life. Make it a story that you love to tell.

All that said, I now have to be the me that my college experience helped shape. I am a poet and humorist. So when I saw the post asking for the best advice I could offer an incoming freshman, my silly side decided that after I offered some real advice worth every cent that new incoming freshmen paid for it and less, I needed to offer something to help ease the tension of being away from home for the first time and living with a stranger in a communal setting. After all, college is a place for first experiences and there is good chance that an incoming freshman might have this one.

Which led to this –

If you’re new to the dorm life game,
You’ll find that it’s anything but tame.
It could be terrifying
When roomie’s self gratifying….
Step back and ask, “Does that hand have a name?”
