Here is a list of seven people you may encounter that sit next to you in a lecture hall.

7 Types Of People You Will Find Yourself Sitting Next To In A Lecture

If you have ever sat in a lecture hall, you know that sometimes you will sit next to some very interesting people. Here are some that many of you may come across in your college careers.

1. The frat star

Everyone has sat next to one boy or another who is wearing a vineyard vines shirt, backward hat, and only comes to class carrying a pencil and a giant water bottle. These are the guys that always ask what the professor is saying and if they can copy off of you during the tests. You are better than that!

2. The gamer

This is the kid that is hardcore gaming during class. Whether it be on their phone or their laptop, they are very easily spotted by the aggressive tapping of the screen and the headphones hidden in their hoodies.

3. The Soundcloud rapper

What would a college lecture be without someone trying to become a famous rapper? This kid rolls up to class 20 minutes late with beats headphones on and tries to promote himself to the professor. "Go check out @swaggmoney7 on SoundCloud for a good time." Never sit next to this kid if you can avoid it or else you will get brought into downloading their entire mixtape.

4. The opinionated one

This person is the one who always has their hand raised and ready to share. Now, this could work for or against you, because if this student likes to argue with the professor, it will draw attention to you and you could no longer hide behind the computer screen anymore. That, is the end for ya.

5. The aggressive laptop texter

I know we are all guilty of this, but sometimes it just is past the point of being ok. There is nothing worse than the person next to you typing away to their bff about what some guy did at the party last night in the middle of a lecture. Some of us actually want to pay attention people! Do it on your phone under the desk like everyone else!

6. The underprepared one

Ah, those youths. The ones who always ask to borrow a pencil. never do their homework, and have never once taken notes. We are all youths. This is us.

7. Finally, there is the best friend

If you are lucky enough to have a class with one of your best friends, take advantage of that! College is such a crazy time that sometimes going to class may be the only time you get to hang out, so make the most of it together.
