If 'Mean Girls' Characters Went To Big Ten Schools

I wish the Big Ten could all get along like they used to in middle school.

If 'Mean Girls' Characters Went To Big Ten Schools

Twelve years ago, one of the most iconic movies was gifted to the world: "Mean Girls." By now, you have probably referenced a handful of its quotes, maybe dressed up as a character one year for Halloween, and have certainly watched it too many times to count. As we all know, the movie takes place in high school, but it's time that we take it to the next level: college. Have you ever wondered which schools the characters would go to? Lucky for you, I've created the perfect matches. Here's what would happen if "Mean Girls" characters went to Big Ten schools...

Cady Heron: Rutgers University

Just like how Cady was the new girl at school, Rutgers is new to the Big Ten. Cady would totally go to Rutgers. For one, they've gone through the same experiences. Cady had a hard time making friends at first, but soon enough she was invited into the Plastics, just like Rutgers was invited into the exclusive clique of the Big Ten two years ago. Cady slowly climbed her way up on the ladder of popularity, just like Rutgers's football team is slowly becoming more powerful. Not to mention she would look great in red too.

Karen Smith: Michigan State

We all pegged Karen as the blonde airhead that she is well before she claimed her boobs could tell when it was going to rain or when she was genuinely confused how Cady could be white and be from Africa. And we can't forget that time she asked Damian how to spell orange. Needless to say, her IQ has to be very low. Karen's best bet would be Michigan State because chances are she can't get in anywhere else. The academics are not too challenging and she will still get to party hard without having to sacrifice any sacred shopping time and other important things in her life.

Aaron Samuels: University of Michigan

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F06%2F6360611900366930822104042087_tumblr_m5oo3a9IQx1ryf92ho1_r1_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=202&h=21840f75147386e1cf0e128671f6e92e08deedc2bbf9367cd8b95e363f060318&size=980x&c=2963275278 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F06%252F6360611900366930822104042087_tumblr_m5oo3a9IQx1ryf92ho1_r1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D202%26h%3D21840f75147386e1cf0e128671f6e92e08deedc2bbf9367cd8b95e363f060318%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2963275278%22%7D" expand=1]

Unlike Karen, Aaron is extremely intelligent, as evident in the fact that he was Cady's math tutor. Aaron is your typical NJB (nice Jewish boy) whose always had his heart set on the University of Michigan. Wolverines always look sexy with their hair pushed back, am I right? He's that really hot kid in one of your classes that you desperately wish would ask you something as stupid and insignificant as what day it is. Aaron would probably be in some top tier frat while girls fight for his attention every weekend, much like the Cady and Regina feud.

Gretchen Weiners: Indiana University

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F07%2F6360612824400021561520841717_gretchentoasterstrudel422.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=568&h=1ef9843a55a2497268ef2c2868f57a190402f21794378e59b1cbd1952b8b1022&size=980x&c=492494927 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F07%252F6360612824400021561520841717_gretchentoasterstrudel422.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D568%26h%3D1ef9843a55a2497268ef2c2868f57a190402f21794378e59b1cbd1952b8b1022%26size%3D980x%26c%3D492494927%22%7D" expand=1]

Indiana, home of the hoosiers, is the perfect school for Gretchen. Whenever asked or interrogated about something she did, she creates her own game of "hoosier daddy" and won't hesitate to use the legendary excuse about how her father invented toaster strudel. This would come in handy when Gretchen pleads her case with the Dean of Admissions when put on academic probation because of her GPA. Nonetheless, she still thinks "Indy" is sooo fetch.

Regina George: Ohio State

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F07%2F636061279314330237266158483_tumblr_nb5eollXIC1t1bekoo1_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=606&h=ef2432c74f543baf81bb972b2b9df67807cc9f624132e2c59ae7d5542042be2d&size=980x&c=840518423 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F07%252F636061279314330237266158483_tumblr_nb5eollXIC1t1bekoo1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D606%26h%3Def2432c74f543baf81bb972b2b9df67807cc9f624132e2c59ae7d5542042be2d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D840518423%22%7D" expand=1]

And evil takes a human form in Regina George. Regina would attend THE Ohio State University, even though she certainly didn't have the grades. But when you have a cool, not regular mom, who can pull a few strings, anything is possible. Regina doesn't buck with the following: carbs, buses, and especially ex-boyfriends. When Aaron broke up with her, that was the beginning of the same vicious rivalry between Ohio State and University of Michigan. Regina was still pretty salty and choosing Ohio State was the sweetest revenge.

It may not be the halls of North Shore High School, but you can bet that all the drama and vicious cat fights will travel to college with them for four more years...

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.
