I put in plenty of overtime (unpaid) when there's a schedule crunch,
which - happily - is less and less frequent these days, but I
don't have to be "on duty" anywhere in particular. I take a break
when I need it, and no patients are left unattended. :-)

Here in Canada, fraternity stuff was optional (or it was, back
in my day) - and I lived off-campus, not in residence, so my
college days were Greek-free.
Went to a couple of parties during "Frosh Week", but otherwise
ignored the hazing and silliness. Never was a big drinker, so
didn't have that to keep me up either.

Of course, at the other end of the year was cramming for
exams... until I caught on that cramming doesn't work
nearly as well as just keeping up during the semester. ;->

Even in the Armed Farces, I wasn't a silly-bugger, so none
of that staying awake all night, hip-deep in a freezing puddle.
Comms - the flavor that I signed up for - was more civilized.
You worked at your station until the next shift arrived,
and god help them if they were late. The equipment was all
expensive and sensitive, so we lived and worked (and slept)
in heated/air-conditioned comfort.
