College will introduce you to some of the best and worst people. For better or worse, these are the people you’ll be seeing for the next four years, so buckle up, collegiate.

1) The Slacker with a Crazy IQ

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F23%2F635891063704513108-136980727_community.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=32&h=e307d7f78218fdfe65451cacfd07568743d72872f8ee5b7979682c901e4ef85f&size=980x&c=477009673 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F23%252F635891063704513108-136980727_community.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D32%26h%3De307d7f78218fdfe65451cacfd07568743d72872f8ee5b7979682c901e4ef85f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D477009673%22%7D" expand=1]

This guy is either constantly playing video games, or always looking to party. Either way, you haven’t seen him in class since syllabus week, but somehow he always ends up with a crazy GPA.

2) The Girl Who Studies 24/7

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F23%2F635891064412526840-2120333542_community2.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=273&h=fd26fa54d485b43485359d188df3a37103850f9a152bf240b839a674cebb1003&size=980x&c=801420266 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F23%252F635891064412526840-2120333542_community2.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D273%26h%3Dfd26fa54d485b43485359d188df3a37103850f9a152bf240b839a674cebb1003%26size%3D980x%26c%3D801420266%22%7D" expand=1]

You’ll see this girl in class and at the final exam, but that’s about it. Other than that, she’s locked up in the library or study room and working her butt off to earn that degree. You go, girl.

3) The Overachiever

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F23%2F635891065112077667-2047105017_community3.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=33&h=1bf755afc5ac977e5057a85efdaf8d98292fc3ecb9d3fe11a09c385eddd2c313&size=980x&c=1403395219 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F23%252F635891065112077667-2047105017_community3.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D33%26h%3D1bf755afc5ac977e5057a85efdaf8d98292fc3ecb9d3fe11a09c385eddd2c313%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1403395219%22%7D" expand=1]

This girl is similar to the one who studies all the time, however, she also has two jobs, 20 units, a boyfriend, is in a sorority, and also made the Dean’s List. Oh and she’s also super nice. You’ll hate not being able to hate this girl.

4) The Girl Who Can’t Handle Her Alcohol.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F23%2F635891056663611524-605405414_VyaPXRc.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=241&h=063bb3673bef84518963faaa59f3059be1915034ffc418c7dd32a32ffa3254e5&size=980x&c=3579654077 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F23%252F635891056663611524-605405414_VyaPXRc.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D241%26h%3D063bb3673bef84518963faaa59f3059be1915034ffc418c7dd32a32ffa3254e5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3579654077%22%7D" expand=1]

This girl is always overly excited about the weekend. She tends to get carried away, and is usually blacked out a few hours into the night. Giving her a re-cap the next day may embarrass her, but it most likely won’t change her ways.

5) The One in All of Your Classes

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F23%2F635891056664861508-1168695690_giphy.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=288&h=f0647e287f55731ed0ac5cab340fd00c457a2705a69cf3a2e2442860e3c9a317&size=980x&c=3533765034 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F23%252F635891056664861508-1168695690_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D288%26h%3Df0647e287f55731ed0ac5cab340fd00c457a2705a69cf3a2e2442860e3c9a317%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3533765034%22%7D" expand=1]

This person is a recurring figure in your life. You’ve basically guaranteed to have a class with them during any given term. You might not know each other’s names, but you’ll definitely acknowledge each other on campus.

6) The One That's ALWAYS on Their Phone

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F23%2F635891067519857577-438893530_community5.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=298&h=7540beb3ab766bddd16f1f0aaae3d1f08d6f6c40cc89c05f9445c979bdb4e77f&size=980x&c=4166877106 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F23%252F635891067519857577-438893530_community5.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D298%26h%3D7540beb3ab766bddd16f1f0aaae3d1f08d6f6c40cc89c05f9445c979bdb4e77f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4166877106%22%7D" expand=1]

Whether they’re Snapchatting or texting their moms, these guys seem to get major anxiety being apart from their cell phone.

7) Awkward Hook-up Run-ins

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F23%2F6358910688635026541897512486_community6.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=588&h=460ba52bfcfbdb98f278679ed305fa1371f8561c2ea9375cadc21635aca129cd&size=980x&c=4017772433 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F23%252F6358910688635026541897512486_community6.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D588%26h%3D460ba52bfcfbdb98f278679ed305fa1371f8561c2ea9375cadc21635aca129cd%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4017772433%22%7D" expand=1]

You see each other around campus occasionally, and every time you do, it’s the weirdest thing ever. You’re guaranteed awkward eye contact if you ever happen to run into each other.

8) The People With Enough Energy to Act as a Wi-Fi Server for the Entire Continent of Africa.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F23%2F635891070291979813836163711_community7.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=278&h=375a72b93f2e3782f46cea8a7cb894339132bdd639dbe0703d0782f2999fda6d&size=980x&c=1734234821 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F23%252F635891070291979813836163711_community7.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D278%26h%3D375a72b93f2e3782f46cea8a7cb894339132bdd639dbe0703d0782f2999fda6d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1734234821%22%7D" expand=1]

You have to be wary of these guys. Sure, being around someone who's a ball of energy can be fun, but sometimes it can be a bit much.

9) The Obnoxious Couple

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F23%2F6358910707485875691051700115_community8.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=461&h=24632b0c3e0794538005da83ef77439f736508d420c35286f42a641d1513e2ce&size=980x&c=2629395165 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F23%252F6358910707485875691051700115_community8.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D461%26h%3D24632b0c3e0794538005da83ef77439f736508d420c35286f42a641d1513e2ce%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2629395165%22%7D" expand=1]

These guys probably met during the first few weeks of school, and they’re still going through their honeymoon phase a year later. Whether they’re posting cute Snap stories or making out on a park bench, these two are always together. If you’re friends with one of them, chances are you’ll have to get along with their significant other as well.

10) The Know-it-All

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F23%2F6358910566625177931936555072_tumblr_muiqskhwkS1rnr47go2_500.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=49&h=c0fbb77df18c47bdd521c735731220eca80673fd95273b955e3955abaec64328&size=980x&c=1346080588 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F23%252F6358910566625177931936555072_tumblr_muiqskhwkS1rnr47go2_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D49%26h%3Dc0fbb77df18c47bdd521c735731220eca80673fd95273b955e3955abaec64328%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1346080588%22%7D" expand=1]

A lot of times these guys are actually really smart; but for the most part, they’re just convinced they know more than anyone else. No matter the topic, they always have some piece of information to add to the conversation.

11) The Lost Ones

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F23%2F635891056662361563-1061108768_tumblr_m7nzmrP8vI1ql9l8xo1_500.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=655&h=85f978313bb70bdddc2074e4b2c9c6d7c45da1b4d6ffba82ced2261774c225d5&size=980x&c=3057470011 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F23%252F635891056662361563-1061108768_tumblr_m7nzmrP8vI1ql9l8xo1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D655%26h%3D85f978313bb70bdddc2074e4b2c9c6d7c45da1b4d6ffba82ced2261774c225d5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3057470011%22%7D" expand=1]

These are the people you were convinced you’d be BFFLs with, but for some reason or another it didn’t work out. Now you aren’t totally sure whether to say hi to each other or not on campus.

12) Your Homies

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F23%2F635891066286947105-1735735241_community4.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=158&h=a66f7fba57f8686b6aa13b53b738524ce883f9f65fd13d4395a383f2e1ab5682&size=980x&c=142154738 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F23%252F635891066286947105-1735735241_community4.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D158%26h%3Da66f7fba57f8686b6aa13b53b738524ce883f9f65fd13d4395a383f2e1ab5682%26size%3D980x%26c%3D142154738%22%7D" expand=1]

These are your people. They’ll listen to your whining, and call you out on your mistakes. These guys won’t judge you for binge-watching "High School Musical," make 3 A.M. runs to find donuts, and will talk to you about anything and everything. You probably have a plethora of inside jokes, but can also communicate with just a look.

The college experience is different for everyone, but there are some people who you’ll find on every campus. You’ve got at least four years to find your people, and chances are, some of them are on this list.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.
