A TikTok user found a secret hiding place in a new dorm room after connecting with a former student who lived in the same room seven years ago.
“This year was my first grader in my room!!” in 2015,” said the former resident. @livdphotographyI commented.
In another now-deleted comment, Liv directed Anna and a current resident to check for a specific ceiling tile.
In a now-deleted video, Anna shows off what she found there. It was a few bottles of sake left behind by the commenter when he was a freshman. (The Daily Dot was unable to contact Anna.)
“Oh, are they all empty??” asked one commenter.
“Yeah, they’re all vacant. All from 1st grade!! Eight years ago,” replied former resident Liv. (Liv did not immediately respond to the Daily Dot’s request for comment.)
The comments section of Anna’s video was flooded with stories of her college days. Some involved hiding alcohol in dormitory ceiling tiles.
“My university has several dorms like this,” one user commented.
“I found a treasure map on the ceiling when I was a freshman. It was to put other liquors on other ceilings and windows to let other people into the dormitory,” wrote another.
Some even share their connections and memories in the same dormitory building.
One commenter wrote, “Oh, this is exactly what my room was last year.”
“I helped move that refrigerator into the building,” added another.
Users were also surprised by the ability to find a former resident’s room and the coincidence that Anna’s video appeared on her TikTok timeline.
“The fact that they found this video and it was in the same room is amazing…it makes the big big world feel just a little bit smaller (laughs),” one person commented.
Others encouraged Anna to follow the tradition of hiding liquor in the dormitory ceiling.
“We have to keep adding,” wrote the user.
