Kinds of People You Meet In College

The 5 People You're Going To Meet In College

You'd be surprised at how almost everyone on this list is at your university right now!


You've made it into college/University, congrats! You've officially entered a new world of adventures and possibilities! As you're attending your university or college, the first thing you'll want to do, other than unpacking your bags, is making friends with any and every person that crosses your path. Well, while you're out there fishing for some new people to make friends with, here are a few kinds you might reel in.

1.The School Celebrity

This guy or girl is pretty part of the "It" Crowd at your school. They are heavily involved in any and if not all school clubs and they are probably in a leadership role, if not, the president for all of them. Essentially, these guys have become the face of the school and have the entire campus following them on all social platforms. They are extremely outgoing individuals, who, at the end of the day will graduate and become extremely successful.

2.The Sheltered Kids

These are the ones who have most likely come from a small town in the middle of nowhere and have never broken the rules. I'm talking have never missed a curfew, and who thinks shots only come from the doctor's office. Once the semester starts rolling on, typically they finally try something new and go on a high of exploring the new world college has so graciously provided for them.

3. The Greeks

These guys are really hard to miss on campus. Most of the time you'll see one girl handing out flyers, a guy in his pastel-colored button down and boat shoes or even a group of them walking around, typically if not always decorated in their sorority/fraternity letters. The very much bro community of your school, though sometimes, you'll come to find there are some Greeks that don't fall into the stigma.

4. The Overachievers

Don't get it twisted, it's great that they are working super hard during each semester, you'll never not hear about it. These people will always let you know how many classes, clubs, charities, jobs, and events they have lined up for them this week. They juggle immense amounts of work every day and are practically a living breathing coffee-fueled machine. No matter how crazy your life may seem, you'll never out "busy" them.

5. The Slackers

Unlike the overachievers who seemingly have zero time to do anything that doesn't involve what they are already doing. The slackers are one of the most puzzling people you'll come across on campus. Found mostly in their dorms, out lounging on campus grounds, and occasionally sleeping in the library. These people will never set foot in class after their first week, occasionally they will pop into class for midterms and finals but other than that, they are ghosts. Yet infuriatingly they always seem to get a higher grade than you for hardly being present.

Regardless of who you come across during your years at university, remember to not judge a book by its cover. At the end of the day, you'll make friends with whoever comes your way, and as long as they make you happy, if they are a greek or the sheltered kid, it shouldn't matter.

10 TV Shows That Can Replace 'The Office' On Netflix By 2021



Netflix has done it again. Created a mass panic. But this time the reason is not that "Friends" is being taken down or renewed for a giant price.

No, this time it is much worse.

Netflix has said in just TWO short years, it is likely NBC will be taking 'The Office' down. I know, it is unthinkable. What else are we suppose to rewatch a hundred times and quote endlessly? You cannot simply take Michael Scott off of Netflix.

The best thing to ever happen was for Netflix to put "The Office", they made it popular again. And you @ me on that. But now they are removing it. I guess we will just have to watch other shows now.

Find other shows on Netflix to watch and to fill the void that NBC is creating for us.

5 Reasons Why Staying At College For The Summer Is The Ultimate Power Move

No school, no rules, summer vacation at the best place on Earth, also known as college.


As summer begins, it brings in the joy of no more school but for most what summer really brings is the sad realization that we have to leave our favorite place and go back to our boring home town with none of our new best friends. Although some have decided to stay at college for the summer and they will soon realize why this will be the best choice that they will be making all summer.


What's better than no school, warm weather, and most importantly no one to say, "Are you just going to sleep till 2:30 p.m. every day this summer?"

1. It's like the weekend, but every day

Do you know what weekends felt like during the school year when you didn't have anything to do? No? You never had any free weekends? Wow, I'm so sorry. Well, imagine a weekend that you didn't have to do anything. Now multiply that one weekend by seven and you get seven Saturday like days where you do not have a single care in the world.

3. No "Go cut the grass!"

For the sons, you know that annoying time every week when your dad is going to say, "Go cut the grass." There is nothing you can do to get out of it. Well, staying at school for the summer means no more nagging. You get to choose what you do now.

4. The bond of friendship

The friends you make when you stay at college for the summer are different than any other bond. Mostly because you all don't have a care in the world since it's summer in your favorite place. It's a right of passage to call someone your summer college best friends. These are best friends that words wouldn't do justice.

5. The townies

Everybody always wonders what happens to a college town when all the college kids go home. Well, the townies come back in full swing and take their town back. If you stay at your college, you get to experience what most can't even describe in words. To the one mid-40s guy trying to relive his glory days. To the old men hitting on the college girls at the local pub. To the weird towny creatures that make you shiver with fright as you drive past them. Have fun townies, you only have three months.

That dream of "I wish I could just stay here at college with all these people but have no responsibilities" is finally coming true.
