10 Types Of College Students As Represented By 'New Girl' Characters

In college, you tend to run into a lot of interesting people. Some you create lasting relationships with, some you never see again. A lot of the people you run into on campus are a lot like characters on New Girl. Here are some common college students as told by New Girl characters. Do you match any?

1. The Frat Guy: Schmidt 

Giphy

The douche jar says it all. This is a guy who is totally about himself in every way possible and dresses in khakis and polo shirts in the dead of winter. They're often found promoting fraternity events and getting wasted on the weekend hitting on girls.

2. Education Major: Jess

The person who's always dreaming up what their future classroom will look like. Usually your mom friend. They live to be the most optimistic person they can be, but have breakdowns over whether or not they're actually capable of running a classroom someday.

3. That one guy you see in class like once before they disappear forever...: Coach

media.giphy.com

You know you know someone like this. They show up to the first day of class or so and then just disappear, never to be seen from again. Do they even go here anymore? You'll never know. If they DO ever show up, they're in the back. Probably eating food, texting or making the weirdest comments.

4. The person obsessed with their pets: Winston

media.giphy.com

I have to admit, this is totally me. Always talking about their pet, whether it's a cat, dog, or even a bird. This person goes on and on about their pets, and probably have them as their lockscreen. If you run into them at Starbucks, be ready to hear all about how their pet is doing today.

5. The Undecided Major: Nick

Giphy

The person who has no clue what they want to do with their life. They might have a side project or two, but they're still struggling to find what their passion is. In the meantime they're happy just living in the moment. They refuse to be helped, and if you try to suggest that they get their life together you might feel the consequences.

6. The surprisingly nice sorority girl: CeCe

Giphy

If you've ever seen a college movie, you've witnessed the evil sorority sister. This is the person that you'd expect to see at a frat party gossiping about how you slept with so and so. She's thought to be only a dumb pretty face, but she surprises you! She's down to earth, compassionate, and still totally a sorority girl, she's a CeCe.

7. The guy who never talks

Giphy

This one's obviously Tran. He has never spoken or made any effort to participate in class, but somehow he seems wise and like he knows how you'll die. Usually sits in the middle of the class or towards a wall, and sometimes you forget that they're there.

8. Your friend's partner: Aly

Giphy

They're super sweet, and they make your friend happy. But you really don't know much about them, other than that.

9. That person who you really want to be friends with but it never happens: Reagan

Giphy

Reagan only shows up for a few episodes as a sort of stand in for Jess. She's mysterious and you desperately want to get to know her better, but she disappears before you ever get the chance to. You might see them in a club and desperately want to get to know them, but before you do they're gone forever. Kind of like Coach, except this time they don't come back.

10. The Nice Guy: Robby

Giphy

The guy that one of your friends dates but he just keeps showing up. You don't mind, though, because he's a super nice guy! Don't date him though, he might be your cousin.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.

3524

I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves. I realize not everyone believes in astrology-related anything, and there are plenty of people who don't fit their signs. However, I'm one of the people who truly fits their sign to a tee. I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

kozepsuli.hu

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
