Ever wonder who you’d meet on campus if dogs went to college? What would their college majors be? Their hobbies? Their quirks? Well, we thought this question deserved an answer. So we looked into it and met some interesting characters.
Usually we write blog posts about meaty topics that are critical to your college planning success. Not today. This one’s just for fun. Another ACT Test cycle is winding down, and we’re feeling a little punchy today. You’re welcome.
Vegan to reduce her carbon footprint. Straws?? She. Can’t. Even. Studying abroad next semester in Denmark where they have a clue.
Major: English Literature
Plans to get his Masters out East where the real writers live. Writes poetry, ‘cuz girls dig it. Thinks about smoking a pipe.
Works summers at her uncle’s organic farm in Vermont. Prefers plants to people. Disappointed succulents went mainstream.
Only shoots film. Had a Leica, but had to sell it to make rent. Have you seen his new website? Gave up the school newspaper gig. No true artistry to it.
Major: Fashion Design
Considered FIT and Pratt, but Drexel’s closer to home. Sews her own clothes. Thinking of legally changing her name to Z, ‘cuz she insists you call her that anyway.
Despises the food here. Requested a single dorm room, because he’s NOT a morning person. Wanted an internship in Israel, but Mom and Dad made him choose Arizona instead. Still bitter.
Major: Journalism & Social Media Marketing
Doesn’t really need those glasses. Is fond of playing Devil’s Advocate in Media Theory class. Has 2500+ Twitter followers, but insists on reading the New York Times in print, as God intended it.
40-something trapped in a 20-year-old body. Pet peeve is people who talk at Starbucks. Senior thesis is on Netflix and the decline of the young mind.
Chose CU Boulder. Cuz skiing. Wears scarves. Always. Thinking of changing majors. Who knew Kinesiology would require so much science?
Close talker. Vice President of the “BC” (Bio Club) and they totally dominated regionals. Rarely showers. Still somehow found his ideal match on Tinder.
Major: Interior Design
ADORES Mad Men. Wishes she’d been born in 1960. Wears vintage anyway. Dating an advertising major who smokes Camels.
Major: Music Business
What’s with all these Gen Eds? Just wants to make beats. Starting to wonder if he could have just learned it all on YouTube. Kanye and Jay-Z did alright.
Major: Film & Video
Don’t even get her started on the new Star Wars. No longer in the Honors Program, because her Work comes first. Twitter @FilmNotFluff.
Major: International Studies
Has a French accent, but he’s from Kansas. Lives in the International Student dorm again this year. Drinks espresso, never coffee. (His real name’s Dan.)
Major: Real Estate Development
Mari. With an I, thank you. Social Chair for her sorority. Knows everybody. Everybody. Doesn’t love college football, but never misses a tailgate.
