Which stereotypical BU freshman would your dog be?
Ever wondered what it’d be like if your dog could come to school with you? Wonder no more
Being a freshman in college is definitely a fun experience, but it can also come with quite an adjustment for most. You're excited for a new start, but now you have to make friends and find your niche. And, you have to do all this while you miss your family and friends — but most of all your dog.
Ever wondered what it'd be like if you switched roles with your dogs? Don't worry, we've got you covered.
You can't bring your dog to BU, but maybe you can bring the BU to your dog.
Ready to take on Allston night life
We all know BU's tough, so what better way to blow off some steam than hitting up some frat parties in good ole Allston?
Tequila Tuesdays? Thirsty Thursdays? It's 5 o'clock somewhere! You'll use any saying as an excuse. After all, Allston is part of the freshman experience… Just try not to regret your rookie decision the next day when you have to wake up for that 8am class.
How is it already the middle of October? You basically just got here!
You're the studious freshman who never leaves their room and gets really good grades. You're the one that comes prepared because you know how difficult midterms will be. You stay inside during the weekends making study guides of your notes months in advance in order to get ahead. You make your parents so proud they brag about it the entire Thanksgiving dinner.
The 'I'm not gonna gain the freshman 15' kid
You're the wannabe 'athletic type' but, in reality, you're too lazy to even get your ass to Fit Rec. You tell yourself that you are going to work out at home… but actually just end up taking a nap. This ends up becoming a habit and when you go home for break all your relatives secretly think you got fat (but no one says anything).
No regrets though because naps are great and Rhett's curly fries are flames.
The freshman who's way too excited for Wine Wednesdays
It's only Monday champ, calm down.
You're the freshman who doesn't know how to handle the classiness of wine yet. The type to plan their entire schedule around the elusive and magical SHA wine tasting class. You finally have it figured out! Oh… wait… you have to be 21 to get in. Better luck next year rookie. This is the one time the CGS-London kids did it right and studied abroad their freshman year — the drinking age over there is only 18.
The rookie who lets the laundry build up for far too long and gives up on life
As a freshman you're not used to having to always do your own laundry. You tell yourself there are more important things to do in life than laundry, so you end up being that kid who wears the same pair of jeans for a week.
Worst part is, when you finally end up dragging your overflowing laundry bag down, there's a feud for the machines and it's every man (or dog) for themselves.
The Marsh Plaza rebel
They say that if you cross the seal in Marsh Plaza that you won't graduate on time. However, you're a rebel not worried about graduating yet. Plus, you don't believe in superstitions. I mean, who needs to graduate in four years anyways? And hey, maybe stepping on it will be some sort of reverse-jinx and help you graduate early. Take a risk, live a little, it's college!
The low-key Tinder fiend
There's always that one stud at BU that you come across on Tinder. Maybe you've seen them in your classes or strutting down Com Ave like it's their personal runaway. You've awkwardly made eye contact with them at the GSU but have never met them in person, so you don't wanna say hi. They're even an upperclassman so you don't want to make the first move.
But hey, nobody's got time to meet at coffee shop anymore. We've all swiped right and tried to play it off — don't be ashamed, embrace it.
