Coming to TCU, a private Christian university, I’ve encountered many students who have gone to private schools their whole lives. Sometimes I like to share some of the stories from my public school with them as it’s very different from their experiences. Here are some of my favorite public high school moments that have shocked them.

TOILET FISH

In my sophomore year, some junior boy had the idea to put a red snapper in the boys’ toilets. He then left it there and everyone took pictures of it. It was posted on everyone’s Snapchat story, and suddenly, half the school knew about it. This then prompted more boys to buy fish from the H.E.B. fish market and subsequently throw the fish in the toilets. The school had to close the boys’ bathrooms.
