Put down the Ramen noodles! For whatever reason people think these are the quintessential college food and parents buy them in bulk. Personally, I think these cups of salty noodles push the "Freshman 15" to 25. Several kids who lived in my dorm freshman year ate Ramen noodles all the time and were then baffled when their pants didn't fit.
