The 8 Types Of College Guys You Find At A Bar, As Told By Their Drink Order

Like drinks, guys are all different... But some are shockingly similar.

The 8 Types Of College Guys You Find At A Bar, As Told By Their Drink Order

Your order at a bar can say a lot about you. Read ahead to find out what a guy's drink order says about them!

1. Craft beer or an IPA

Everyone knows this guy. He might not actually like beer, in all honesty, but he orders a craft beer to look cool with his buddies. This guy cares a lot about what everyone thinks of him. He always asks the approval of his friends before even approaching a girl in public. This guy is pretty nice, but can end up being pretty shallow.

2. Shots

This guy is pretty common here at WVU. He's probably with his frat brothers at the bar, actually. He wastes no time—he knows that he wants to get drunk and he wants to do it quickly. (Nothing wrong with that.) Only approach this guy if you're ready to try keeping up with him... Or if you're OK with tucking him into bed at the end of a long night.

3. Whiskey neat

This guy is pretty similar to the "craft beer" guy. He cares a lot about public opinion. But unlike the "craft beer" guy, "whiskey" guy wants to come off as ULTRA-masculine. This guy wants you to assume that he woodworks and builds his own furniture. (Spoiler: He probably doesn't.)

4. Long Island iced tea

I can't say anything bad about this guy–a Long Island is usually my go-to drink order. Like "shots" guy, he knows that he wants to get drunk, and he knows that he wants to do it quickly. But unlike "shots" guy, "Long Island" guy doesn't want the taste of rubbing alcohol on his tongue all night. You do you.

5. Martini

I have HONESTLY never met a guy that orders a martini as his go-to. I've only ever seen a guy order a martini when it was on special. I don't really think these guys exist—maybe they do, but I've never seen one in real life. My assumption is that if a guy orders one of these, he wants you to know that he's much more sophisticated than you are.

6. Tequila Sunrise

I can't say no to tequila. And neither can this guy. But he's concerned with aesthetics. He wants to order tequila, but still wants his drink to be aesthetically pleasing. The guy that orders a Tequila Sunrise at the bar is probably really fun. I want to be his friend.

7. Anything with Red Bull

I know I said that the "Tequila Sunrise" guy was pretty fun, but the guy that orders a Red Bull drink is fun. (Probably not the type to settle down, but he's still really fun.) He's your stereotypical "sleep all day, party all night" type of guy. The only way he can accomplish this, though, is by adding caffeine to his alcohol. (No judgements, I've been there.) This guy will probably slide into your DMs and ghost you a few weeks later.

Bonus points if he orders a Trashcan.

8. Water

There are a few reasons that a guy might order water at a bar.

1. He might be a DD or 2. He might be underage. He's either a responsible adult or a baby tagging along with his friends, so have fun with this gamble!

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
