11 Types of College Students

We all know those people who give us a little eye twitch every time we're around them.

11 Types of College Students

1) The kid who rides to class on a motorized skateboard

Listen, I have to give you props for creativity, but please stop nearly running me over while you zoom to class. Walk like the rest of us, we have to burn off that Freshman 15 weight somehow.

2) The athletes

I understand that you played soccer in high school, but the intramural team game isn't the Fifa World Cup. Also, to the athletes actually on teams, we get it- you're an athlete. You don't have to wear your Nike branded backpack, shorts, t-shirt, and shoes every time you go to class. Do you own nothing other than what your coach gave you to wear?

3) The sorority girl

This is essentially the same thing as a VSCO girl. Scrunchies, fabric headbands, Kendra Scott necklaces, Lokai and Pura Vida bracelets, Hydroflask covered in stickers, Macbook, also covered in stickers, an oversized t-shirt, Nike sneakers, and a thrilling choice between Nike shorts and Lululemon leggings.

4) The guy who always wears suits

I'm all for cutting guys slack for wearing suits during fraternity pledging, but the guy that wears one every. single. day. needs to calm down. This student likes dressing up for the first day of school…and made it last all year.

5) The people who always seem to be in their hammocks

Do you guys go to class? Or do you just sit on the quad all day? These students may appear to be studious, always accompanied in their hammocks by their laptops, but in reality they just watch Netflix all day.

6) The studious one

We all know the people that are ready to cry after getting less than an A on any assignment. One sage piece of advice: C's get degrees, folks.

7) The frat guy

His name is probably Brad, Chad, or Thad, and his hobbies include shotgunning beers, Juuling, and punching holes in his wall. His room is covered in empty beer cans, and there's a bong on his table. A sports game is on the tv. Can you see it as vividly as I can?

8) The gym rat

This student cannot get through a conversation without mentioning their gym habits. They went to the gym at 6am this morning, got in a quick workout after a healthy lunch, and like to go at night to de-stress from the day. How do you get any work done?

9) The student always complaining about their workload- with an easy major

Seriously, how hard can a sociology or English major be? Please leave space in the library for chemistry and engineering majors.

10) The organized one

This is the girl who sits next to you in class and takes color-coded notes every day in 7 different kinds of highlighters and pens. And her handwriting is so neat! She lives in the library and is always studying. You're jealous of her dedication, be honest.

11) The one that doesn't have to try

These are the people who go out and party the night before a test, and, with no studying whatsoever, get a 91 on the test when the class average was a 67. Stop ruining the curve!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.


For as long as I can remember, I've been fat. The protagonists in the movies I've watched and the books I've read, however, have not been. . .
