1) Being the victim of the “BC look away”
Even though the “BC look away” isn’t necessarily a BC specific phenomenon, it’s still uncomfortable when every time you wave at your “friend” from last night, they get a text message and don’t notice you.
2) Housing process
Totalitarian government oppressing the lives of its population through a cruel lottery system. Makes you wonder where Suzanne Collins found inspiration for “The Hunger Games”.
3) Being called a BU student
Whether it be that one relative that occasionally Facebook messages you, or an acquaintance from high school, there are always a couple of people who mix up BU and BC--and explaining that we are superior intellectually and physically is always such a hassle.
4) Being seen by someone you’re interested in, at late night
Not all of us are 21 years old yet, but let's assume it’s hard to pull off a charming smile while inebriated and with a mouth full of cheese steak.
5) Gonzaga 1 stank
"It's called Sex Panther by Odeon. It's illegal in nine countries... Yep, it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good."
Not only is this incredibly time consuming, but some students seem to have come down with a new sickness. It probably doesn't have a name yet so we're going to give it one right now, we’re going to call it the Throw People's Clothing on the Floor After They’ve Been Washed Flu.
Everyone seems to seize orientation as a chance to give off their worst impressions. And there’s always that one group who tries to throw a “party”.
Conversation I had with a kid at orientation:
Him - “Hey man we’re throwing a party can I use your speakers?”
Me - “Yep”
Him - “Awesome I’m totally gonna get laid”
Me - “Yep”
8) Lyons’ elevator
It's definitely possible that walking from your dorm to the fourth floor of Lyons takes less time than taking the elevator up from the first floor.
Exhausting during the week, dangerous during the weekend, deadly during the winter.
