    Stacks on stacks on stacks! Time to get your learning on. But before you lock yourself up in ye olde library, use foursquare to explore your campus. Find a sneaky study spot, or the best cup of coffee (fuel!) – then leave a tip to pay it forward. Boom!

    Unlocked at a "college residence hall". Thanks for posting.

    It's weird, but High School don't work for me

    This one was easy. :-) Unlocked it in Belgium.

    @Satori_hanzo: supposedly it only works for college-related checkins.

    The reason why some people unlocked it in a middle school, high school or even kindergarten is because those venues might still be in college-related categories (as there were no categories available for those kind of schools when Foursquare started).

    @Lene - I believe you are correct. : )

    It didn't unlock with a test either. I'm going to move it to retired. Thanks @denztyo

    Anyone know when this one will be re-activated? Some schools are already back in session...

    I just got all excited that I saw someone had a tweet about this badge, but turns out it was a PR bot... booo!
