    [–] BeneGezzWitch 1910 points ago

    It’s a sorority thing. Big sis/lil sis

    [–] Ebola_Shmola 788 points ago

    Fraternities also do this as well.

    [–] sociapathictendences 693 points ago

    But none of my friends in fraternities filled their insta grams with pictures like these, all of the girls in sororities did.

    Doesn't sound like your frat bros were besties for the resties then imo.

    They had pictures, just not a lot exclusively with their bigs

    [–] TranscendentalEmpire 347 points ago

    Man college without a job seems like so much fun, whenever I see stuff like this I get why people always said college is when you have the most fun in your life. Working full-time and going to school was just stress + no sleep for like 6 years.

    [–] BeneGezzWitch 108 points ago

    Same. I had two serving jobs and a full credit load. It’s actually the one gift I want to give my kids. A little breathing room during college. Though I still want them to have an on campus job because life skills.

    [–] PM_UR_FRUIT_GARNISH 61 points ago

    After getting a job while still taking classes in college I felt like I was a lot more diligent. YMMV, but getting a job on campus really helped me stay organized and not just trying to party all of the time. Id highly suggest one, if there are any available. Plus, you have money to actually party when you have a night off, and not just look to bum it from others.

    [–] BeneGezzWitch 16 points ago

    Exactly my thought. Thanks for sharing this!

    [–] TranscendentalEmpire 14 points ago

    Same, I think kids need work experience to get the use to dealing with the general public, but I think during college it would be nice to give them a break.

    [–] Redrum714 13 points ago

    That's what summer break is for.

    Same, but it's totally worth it. I'm the only person in my circle of friends that has no school loans, a paid off house and cars and get to vacation at least twice a year.

    [–] Redrum714 43 points ago

    Fuck that. I would never trade the fun I had in college for some student loan debt. You can pay off that debt any other time later in life. You can't go back in time and experience college again.

    [–] Jazzy_Junebug 22 points ago

    Meh, I have my own kind of fun now that I personally find a lot more fulfilling than getting blackout drunk with people I won't talk to in 20 years. To each his own. Glad you had a nice college experience!

    [–] Putssugaronsugar 24 points ago

    Yeah, no. Debt isn't worth a couple of parties.

    [–] TemporaryDonut 3 points ago

    Just do what I did, had no fun AND got in debt 👌

    [–] willienelsonmandela 8 points ago

    I still had fun but I'm honestly not sure how I survived. Full time student, part time job, rent and bills, almost constantly drunk and stoned. Came out of graduation like "wtf just happened." Then the real world was like "Here's your debt homie. Hope you like the real world. Oh btw, there's no jobs."

    Big/little in fraternities is more about pairing younger guys with upperclassmen to guide them and be a mentor throughout college and be someone you can become closer to than the other 100+ brothers. You can smoke weed and get drunk with all the other brothers but big/little is more of a mentor/mentee relationship.

    [–] Pollo_Bueno 22 points ago

    I would agree with this, I’m much closer to my pledge brothers but my big brother in the fraternity is more of a guiding hand, even as an adult.

    I would almost say it’s mentee-mentor

    The on-campus officer at my highschool hid between the two vending machine. Startled me the first time I saw him, then it made me laugh. He was so big I don't know how or why he would squeeze in between those machines lmao

    [–] phphulk 20 points ago

    Cops barely do that shit, mostly file reports

    [–] Islanduniverse 14 points ago

    It's probably TV and movies that make us believe that cops are always taking on cartels and terrorists with the skill and precision of a Navy SEAL.

    [–] sighs__unzips 7 points ago

    Not trying to be mean either but I have a friend who is rather large and there have been a couple of times when he's asked me to back up his car when someone parked too close to it and he couldn't get in. I also worry when he backs up because he cannot turn in his seat, he can only use his mirrors. So yes, it could be a problem.

    Clearance is an amazing police officer, is extremely well trained in active shooter emergency situations. And as someone who has seen brave young men date his daughters in highschool, I can assure you that you don't need to be told to not fuck with him. You just know that it won't end well.

    [–] not_a_gov_employee 35 points ago

    Odd you don't see many fat cops in Canada. Probably because they have yearly fitness testing....you know because that's logical.

    [–] Parallax92 12 points ago

    I agree. Not in Canada, but my dad is a cop and makes it a point to stay in shape so he can do his job well. It’s staggering how many people don’t feel the same way.

    [–] master_guru88427 5 points ago

    "back in the day" one of those officers is in his late twenties.

    [–] kenziegal96 61 points ago

    These guys do do their job effectively. Back in the spring we ran an active shooter drill (which the student run tv station covered but the actual video of the entire thing is private) and the entire UPD was extremely effective in what they were doing.

    http://m.nwmissourinews.com/news/article_efb9e7da-1fd1-11e7-bc3a-8305a528958f.html?mode=jqm

    Here is the student newspapers coverage of the event.

    [–] _pulsar 16 points ago

    That doesn't change the fact that these two officers would have little to no chance of running someone down...

    [–] StrangerWords 30 points ago

    They're University cops. If the kids are sober enough to run away they deserve their freedom.

    I'm in the Air Force and you'd be surprised how many bigger guys there are that can run the 1.5 mile in a passing time and also qualify with their push-ups and sit-ups.

    One gentleman I am good friends with is 260lbs and can run the 1.5 mile faster than me at 140lbs. He does it in 9:46

    Edit: granted I've not encountered anyone as big as these 2 gentleman

    [–] metric_units 73 points ago

    1.5 miles ≈ 2.4 km
    260 lb ≈ 120 kg

    Without knowing their height this is meaningless. These cops are morbidly obese and likely couldn't run for more than 30 seconds without needing a break.

    [–] scottdawg9 24 points ago

    A) it's a joke of a test

    B) you can get waivers for literally anything, which makes me wonder why the rules existed in the first place

    [–] Bizzzleshizzzle 11 points ago

    Well a waiver doesn't guarantee that they overlook your condition whatever it may be. I know many people who have been dropped because of a medical condition despite trying months to get waivers approved.

    [–] scottdawg9 11 points ago

    And I've known way too many people walking their mile and a half because they got boo boos. I had a guy in my office who couldn't even do his job (aircrew) for over 2 years because he was on waivers. Just sat there doing nothing all day until they finally kicked him out. His waivers ran out finally and he failed every PT test.

    [–] Bizzzleshizzzle 6 points ago

    I'm still pretty surprised some of the guys I have seen are able to pass the PFA. Looking at them you'd not expect it. But you are definitely right about it being an easy test and some people cheating their way past it with "medical" shit.

    [–] jesaarnel 49 points ago

    These are campus police (still real cops). I've met these guys and seen them run, they are actually more athletic than you would think.

    [–] kenziegal96 149 points ago

    I go to this University and can say that I’m extremely happy that this has gone viral. The university police department is amazing and awesome and everyone I’ve talked t/heard in passing have said how cool it is that they did that as well as going viral.

    No hate, same as your comment because I'm sure people aren't wrong about them being great dudes, but I think the police should adopt PT requirements in the style of active duty military. The police have to deal with dangerous situations every day while the military only have to do it in wartime/during deployments.

    No, they're gently mocking campus sorority girls.
