Why College Friends Are The Friends That Last Forever

Best friends for life

Why College Friends Are The Friends That Last Forever
Sam Brown

Entering college, I felt like it was a fresh start. I believed that the transition would allow me to be who I truly am and help me find my place in the world. And, of course, it was and it did. Already, just being a year in, I have figured out exactly what I want to do with my life. I have found a lot of clubs and organizations to be a part of. My life is hectic and busy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Most importantly, I have found some amazing friends that I know I am going to have for life. But, what is it that makes college friends stay friends for so long? Well, it’s not just any one thing. It’s many things.

One thing about college friends is that there aren’t any previous expectations of the friendship. Most of the time, college friends are going to have no idea who you were before college. The you they know is the you that you let them see. So, it’s a chance to be completely honest and find friends to accept you completely for who you are.

Also, another thing about college is that almost everyone's way more mature and open minded than what they were in high school. So, even though in high school two people may have not associated with each other due to the two being in two different clicks, in college they can be friends without many people thinking much about it.

College friends can become friends for the strangest reasons. You meet someone in the pizza line because you are both waiting on the same kind, and they could be your best friend a month from then just because of that day. I have a friend that I hang out with more than any of my other friends, and we have absolutely nothing in common. We became acquainted at work and it just sort of grew from there.

Another thing is occupational interests. I have so many friends that we have actually became a lot closer because we are all nursing majors. Those last minute study sessions can make people grow close real quick. Also, it’s just nice to have friends that understand the struggle of having the same major as you.

A final reason is that you live walking distance from certain people for four years. It’s hard not to talk to them. Because you see them all the time, that’s going to grow into late not conversations and random movie days. Then, it grows into you calling them when you need a shoulder to cry on.

I love all of my college friends so much and wouldn’t trade them for the world. For most of them, I have very little in common with them, but know that I will have them forever.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
