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

You probably run into a Schmidt every day.

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 


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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.

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.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
