You Left AIM On All Day, With Creative Away Messages 1 of 11

Though it may not feel like all that long ago, a lot has changed since the year 2000! Technology has advanced, tastes have changed, and the world has moved on in more ways than one. As a result, the college memories of those who attended between 2000-2009 are quite a bit different from those who have followed in their footsteps.

First of all, anyone in college in the 2000s who had a computer in their dorm room made sure to leave AOL Instant Messenger active throughout the day. Most would let their friends know they were away with entertaining away messages, either including a rundown of their class schedule, song lyrics, or movie quotes.

And some of you may have given an attractive classmate the "moo" sound, so you'd know instantly when he or she came online. It's okay. We've all been there.
