Can laying a mini fridge on it's side damage it?

I bought a mini fridge today and the guy said not to put it on its side or If I do, not to turn it on for 24 hours. I was trying to fit it in my car and I put it on its side for a second but it wouldn't fit so I rented a truck and put it upright not sideways and took it home. When I got it home I turned it on right away. It is very loud, enough that I hope it doesn't stop me from sleeping tonight since it's in my bedroom. Is this because I put it on its side for a few seconds?

Help me find a mini fridge that wont leak or make my room cold.

I have had a couple combo mini fridge/freezer's (one was a kenmore) and after a couple weeks they start leaking water and they also make my room cold. I heard large fridges that you have in your kitchen actually make the room warmer so I would like to buy one that uses that cooling system. (and that doesn't leak).

Suggestions for college dorm programs

I was just accepted into a position as a Residential Assistant for my sophomore year at Carleton College, a small liberal arts school in Minnesota. I've started keeping a file of ideas for floor or dorm programs, and I'm looking to add to it. So, MeFites: Can you suggest any particularly awesome events that could be run for a floor, preferably from personal experience? My floor will have 53 residents, including myself and a Co-RA. The building will have around 200, about evenly split between freshmen and sophomores.
