Interestingly in the perceptions of many, students are often deemed poor. Yet seemingly they are actually fairly affluent. Usually having their tuition fees and rent paid for by their parents, they have more or less a totally disposable income but still manage to achieve massive amounts of debt by spending their money on stupid haircuts or designer clothes.
Student houses can often be identified by some sort of roadwork application in the window, or something they've stolen on the way back from a "totally crazy" evening out. Furthermore, the house will usually be in poor condition with little attempt at keeping the front garden clean - further reaffirming their lack of respect for other people, especially those living in the same area.
"We're students, lets get battered on Carling and wake everyone up on our way home with shit songs"
"Hello John, are you coming to the lecture? No, lets go to a Scream Bar and get wasted!"
"Students are lazy and have too much spare time to spend writing shit on websites"
Students are also commonly associated with procrastination on school assignments which then results in further lack of sleep.
One who is enrolled or attends classes at a school, college, or university."
A person of any age, starting from 17/18. Can continue to be named a student for a number of years after they graduate.
Someone who has left school, and moved on to the freedom of life without parents control, much time is spent watching daytime television, drinking alcohol (day and night) sleeping until 4, staying up after a night out until after dawn. Many students enjoy drinking games and sourcing the cheapest alcohol available in the cheaper establishments in the town.
Generally speaking, student days are when many have the largest disposable income of their life, large companies are willing to give students large amounts of money to fund their student days, much of this is spent on alcohol consumption. And beans.
Parents send children off to university in the hopes that they study under the belief that they will attend every lecture they have signed up to and take part in responsible drinking. In reality, a student arrives at university, commences drinking, continues to do so until drunk, following this, drinks some more, then upon waking up the following morning with a hangover attends lectures only occasionally in the following 3/4 years.
James has no money... he's a student.
Paul and Mary were so proud of their daughter Jane at university, however every time they called, she slurred "I'm studying, I'll call you when I'm sober.. I mean, about to tuck in for the night, since I've got a lecture at nine in the morning"
Students come in three varieties: arts, corporate, and useful.
Arts students 'study' arts subjects. Note that they do not study art with the intention of creating it; rather, it is with the aim of appreciating it. With the odd exception like journalism (which is actually a pretty useful degree through which one can find meaningful employment) arts students give students in general a bad name. An arts degree is ridiculously easy to get (really, it is), so arts students do not have to do any form of study, or even attend lectures at all. Thus, they go around boozing, fucking, and bringing down the good name of serious students. They usually come from middle class backgrounds, and are merely attending university for the fun, as they will be able to secure a great job before they even get their degree due to mommy's connections.
The corporate student studies in areas such as law, commerce, and accountancy. They have a slightly greater need to attend lectures, but not so much as useful students. They keep the world economy running smoothly, and their degrees actually require some work and intelligence to obtain. They often come from a poor background, and wish to break free from a vicious cycle.
The useful student studies in an area such as science, engineering, or medicine. Degrees in these areas require quite a bit of work; as an added bonus, student must attend labs as well as lectures. In many cases, these students are motivated to make the world a better place, or to help others in a meaningful way. If not, then they simply wish to exercise their brains to the fullest.
After obtaining a degree, a student may opt to become a post-graduate, wherein they do some independant research under the supervision of a proffessor. Few students reach this stage, but those who do are often responsible for important new discoveries.
