Chick-fil-a is Overhyped in College

The Hype Of Chick-fil-A In College Couldn't Be More Real, But The Same Can Be Said Of Your 'Freshman 15'

The chicken hype was real before coming to college.


Many universities don't offer a lot of food choices in their student unions. Some schools have different chain restaurants, and others only have cafeteria style food.

Here at West Virginia University, a lot of different food options are offered to students throughout their three campuses. The restaurants include chains such as Which Wich, Tazikis, Hugh Baby's, and, of course, Chick-fil-A. Every day when the lunch rush hits, every student on the downtown campus enters the Mountainlair Student Union and bravely waits in one of the three mile long lines to Chick-fil-A without realizing all of the better options around them.

Yes, Chick-fil-a offers good food, but eating it day after day gets tiring.

It is very greasy chicken and French fries which makes, me at least, break out. I can barely eat it anymore without risking a couple zits the next few days.

Everywhere has chicken and fries to offer that are just as good, Chick-fil-A has just been so hyped up over recent years that everyone has to have it. Wasting your whole lunch break waiting in line for food you can get anywhere isn't the smartest of ideas.

It's understandable that some people didn't grow up with a Chick-fil-A five minutes from their home and want to eat it a lot, but eating a lot can help speed up the Freshman Fifteen.

From personal experience, when I was a freshman, I ate Chick-fil-A almost every day for a month straight because it was what I used to and I was basically getting it for free. Over time of eating it every day, I gained my fifteen pounds in the first month of college, as it happens to a lot of other freshman who continuously eat Chick-fil-a every day.

When it comes to having a meal plan in college, save yourself the trouble by getting out of your comfort zone and eat new things rather than sticking to what you"re used to.

Also, eat better some days for your health's sake. It'll help in the long run.

All the majors - a dead flower.

Let's be honest, as college students we're all dead on the inside.

Trying to figure out what to do in life.


I never saw the crossroad

Where I could cross n' roam

Under an arch or dome. [1]

I just kept on the road

That was laid out,

Told to hold out

Till it pays out. [2]

Now I think its too late

Been walking too long,

Classes are all wrong

But masses too strong. [3]

So I follow with my head down

And chest up, succeeding cause

I'm too scared to fuck it up. [4]

But I have a need to lead,

Top-down and gears up

Leaving nothing to the dust.

But if I drop out, I'm a fuck up. [5]

Is it better to live and rust

Or drive till it busts

With trust you can find the way? [6]

[1] - Play on roam/Rome. Starts the poem by expressing the feeling of being trapped in my path in life. I felt like I never got the chance to figure out what I wanted to do.

[2] - I think a lot of it was I was following what people told me I should be doing.

[3] - I have a feeling that it is too late to change my course of life. I'm in a college for business, taking classes about business, and everyone around me wants to do business.

[4] - This is saying that even though I am not passionate about what I am doing I am still trying to succeed only because I'm scared of failing or quitting.

[5] - I want to leave and lead myself, do something where I'm not following but I don't know how to do that. This part starts a car reference, idk I've been watching Formula 1 on Netflix and its dope.

[6] - This is the question I've been asking myself, wondering if I should continue on with my path or follow my passion.
