9 Questionable People You Will Undoubtedly Meet In College
Isabelle Roshko

College is a totally strange assortment of people from all walks of life.

As it has been dubbed the "time for exploration," many people do quite a bit of exploring. One thing I've found amongst all the exploration, is that some individuals find themselves caught in questionable personas.

Some are just strange, others could be considered unpleasant. Regardless, I give to you 9 questionable people you will undoubtedly meet in college.

1. The girl who acts like she has your best interest at heart, only to turn on you the second something doesn’t go her way

I really thought catty drama would disappear once I turned 20 years old—apparently not. This girl could also be categorized as "The girl everyone told you to stay away from, but she she always seemed 'so nice' to you"—you were wrong.

2. The TA who is very obviously high as the moon each session

Your major doesn't matter for this one. Regardless of whether its humanities, sciences, art, the TA doesn't discriminate. I guess it's a good way to cope with 20 blank faces staring at you for an hour, right? For the students, it's not ideal.

3. Dudes who can’t take a hint

I was talking to my girlfriends about this the other day: if I haven't responded to, like, 15 of your texts and an unlimited number of snapchats, do you seriously still think I'm down? I suppose shootin-yer-shot is better than not trying at all…

4. People who hate you because they like your hookup/bae

College is a really weird place where you're undoubtedly going to wind up spit sisters or the like with people you know. I'm sorry my boyfriend/girlfriend/lover doesn't have the hots for you—not my fault.

5. People who hate you because of past hookups

Again, a lot of jealousy and hormones don't make a peaceful concoction. I promise you I'm not trying to steal your man.

6. The girl who pretends to be your friend with the clear intention of using you to get close to one of your friends

If you want dirt on someone, what better way than to finagle your way into their best friend's heart? Even if the intention is to merely get close to someone else, it's pretty shady to use someone's friendship.

7. Petty people who think social media is an appropriate platform for drama and confrontation

Oh you hate me? Great, say it to my face. What's the point in writing mean posts about others for all the world to see? Isn't social media for socializing aka being friendly? There's nothing to fear from these people. Wasting time expressing hate while hidden behind a computer screen portrays them oppositely to how they hoped it would—pathetic and cowardly.

8. That one overly aggressive individual on a power trip

When people get to college and they gain some sort of "position" of power, whether that be in greek life, in a club, at an internship, etc… sometimes they get the idea that makes them better than the peasants below them. As follows, they get a lot bossy and a little tyrannical. Calm down Susan, you're the president of the baking club.

9. The kid in your class who actually never knows when to shut up and gets into fights with the teacher on the reg

While these students were annoying in high school, they're particularly annoying in college. Apparently, being accepted into college means you know everything—hint, hint, it doesn't.

Moral of the story: maybe don't explore these personas? Or do—whatever floats your boat really, but you may find yourself on a list of "questionable" people.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

1483

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

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."
