We appreciate the constant access to food more than you can imagine. The real reason it's overrated is because in 4 years it will disappear forever. People won't give you pizza for coming to their club's open house. The pleasure of getting pelted with fun-size candies at an activities fair will come to a screeching halt when you start commuting. In the real world, no one is concerned about the welfare of your stomach. Forget the freshman 15. Go for that college 100 because you're gonna need a little extra body weight to make up for those starved post-graduation years.
