So I was in my professor's office asking him about how I could improve my grade in his class. Next thing I know, I'm feeling light-headed and my throat is closing up. I thought I needed to puke, but instead I fainted. When I came to, I felt reallllllllllly stupid. He probably not only thinks I'm stupid, but also incapable of handling stress. :( Do you guys have any other equally embarassing or worse stories? It would really make my day.

Not a college related story, but I fainted during the first embalming I witnessed at work. And this was after several years of trauma experience. I still am not sure why I fainted. As my boss put it, "At least you had the decency to walk outside before you hit the floor. It's bad form to faint on the DMF."

Ok, what does DMF stand for? Sadly the first thing that came to my mind was "diseased mother f---er."
