What Your Dining Hall Choice Says About You

The choices we make say a lot about us. From what time we set our alarm for in the morning to whether we get ketchup, honey mustard or barbecue sauce with our late night, the decisions we make are a form of self-expression and let others know who we truly are. In a school full of Bean boots and North Face jackets, even the simplest of choices becomes infinitely more important. For just that reason, take a step back and think about what your dining hall choice says about you.

Lower: You have the patience of a saint. You are usually not rushed, so you and your friends easily lose track of time. You are definitely not afraid of getting lost in the crowd. You are generally an optimist and you are not afraid of judgment. You are a serious sports fan, but you don’t like the concept of the Gold Pass. You are all about living it up, so you always try to make the most of your weekends.

Hillside: You are more alert than the average human, you take pride in your people-watching skills, and you have a great iTunes lineup. People find you interesting, particularly because you keep up-to-date on current events outside of the Boston College bubble, and you keep everyone informed as to what is going on. You are considered the most “urban” person in your friend group. You are also full of answers to life questions. You offer advice when it is asked for, but you are known for being genuine. You don’t go throwing around compliments like, “Wow, your sweater is so cute! Where’d you get it?” when in your head you are really saying, “I’d be a really good person if I did her a favor and burned that sweater.”

Addie’s: You spend too much time at the Plex. You’re certainly a perfectionist, and everything you do is done efficiently. You know how to enjoy the outdoors, but you aren’t wild about New England weather. You are charitable, and though you do not donate your meal plan at the entrances of the dining halls, you enthusiastically attend charity events on and off campus and several shows a year at Robsham. You are not necessarily a tree-hugger, but you feel good about being ecofriendly. You hate Tuesdays more than Mondays, but you love Thursdays.

Mac (Carney’s): You’re not fooling anyone. You either have a hard time letting go or a hard time branching out. You have at least one, if not two, classic “Gassongrams” as a part of your Instagram repertoire. You are typically efficient and prefer not to waste time, but you frequently take much-needed TV breaks to catch up on your favorite shows and movies.

Eagle’s Nest: You have a good head on your shoulders and you always know what the right decision is, though you may not always choose to go down that path. You are very organized and have a highlighter for every color of the rainbow. You also own a variety of BC attire in multiple colors. You wish that you had the time and money for takeout every night. You are also known for being both honest and as lucky as a leprechaun.

Stuart: You’re trapped, but you have transformed into a very accepting and tolerant person. You are flexible when you can be, and you are not shy at all. You have a close group of friends, but you also are just one of those people who “knows everyone.” If you don’t have a job on campus, you have thought about getting one but have never followed through.

The Rat (Lyon’s): You’re pretty casual. In fact, you are just about as close to hipster as a BC student can get. You roll with the punches, spend too much time on social media, and have a hard time getting up for class most mornings. Off campus, you are definitely a Starbuck’s person. Half the reason you come is for the coffee variety, while the other half is the dim lighting.
