Visitors are encouraged to share the most entertaining and outrageous stories that they have encountered through their University experience. If a submitted story is approved by moderation, they are displayed on the website home page in order of their submission with a link to the University that the submission originated from.
The website allows other visitors to rate stories on the website through the use of a 'Standard Student' thumbs up or a 'Crap Student' thumbs down button. A count of these votes are displayed which creates an element of competition between all of the Universities and the attending students.
During a students’ journey through University, many experiences are had that form the most enjoyable periods in many peoples’ lives. Standard Student acts as a place for these moments to be shared with other students.
