Stick To The Status Quo?

Monday, August 25, 2014
Hi Guys! Happy Monday and Happy last of August .. Christmas is merely months away :-) This is the last in this "Back To School Shopping with Haute People" series. I wanted to make this one special ( hopefully ) Apart from the outfits , gadgets and appliances needed for school .. what about your friends?

It is said that the friends you make in University are the true friends you need in life. University/College life is a lot different from High school Life .. if you were that popular guy/girl .. chances are you might not be ( let that sink in) University is like a community within itself and there are thousands of people in this vast ocean. Below are a few types of people you need to look out for.


The Presidential Body: At U.W.I , we referred to this as the "Guild". The Guild is like our very own Government ... these people are of course elected by us the students and try to make the University run as efficiently ( as the Principal ) allow them to. These people are usually overachievers or popular and you might want to make friends with them early :-) These are the ones who will have connections with all the movers and shakers on Campus but in real life.


The Smart Kids: People! you need to know this , it is actually cool to be smart in University. I said cool , not a know it all who gives unsolicited advice. These are the people who are present at all Lectures, always at the Library ( it does exist ) and they are the ones who genuinely care about their education. These are the people you need for group work and also to be a part of their study groups. Please ensure this friendship you are seeking with them is genuine.

The Party Animals: These people are great for post exam shenanigans! It's an auh mazing feeling to always be on the Dean's list and get good grades, but it's even better to have peace of mind. After the 1st year college/university gets real, you will need to truly have fun every now and again to cope. Being friends with these people gets you into the best campus parties free or at a discounted cost. Please don't let them pressure you to go to a party every other night! This might have a negative impact on your grades.


The Vampire: Ok .. this is a bit of a stretch right? But .. Let me Explain :-) This is that person/ people that you never see ( during the day ) at any class. However, if you are on campus after a particular time ...this person suddenly emerges and it's like you are graced with their presence ...lol. Nobody knows their name ..the first time you saw them was during orientation week. These are the people you also only see during exams. Stay away!

The Great Debator : These are the smart @$$, know it all types. They are at every class , at the front! And they have a question/answer to everything. These people are extremely annoying and make Lectures seem like they are longer than they actually are. I remember this one girl in my Lectures who would take Flash Pictures of all the Lectures... what was up with that?

What group did you fit into in College/University?

  4. Wow, you sorted out the types of nowadays kids the right way. Oh wow, I admit at university I used to belong to The Smart Kids Group, but I was often called nerd. The group that I find the most annoying is my all means that of the Great Debator, LoL!

  6. College is a world apart from High School. The students need to start to mature and realize what real world means (opposed to a TV show).

  10. These are exactly the same people we see in all those college movies through the years. Even though we don't really meet all these sorts, we know exactly what you mean. LOL!

  12. In my experience, you have to know and blend with them in any way you can. But for sure, your timing in using these kind of attitude or actions during any meetings, lectures or normal situation, it must be with sense. Be situational and flexible.

  13. I can several schoolmates of mine belonging to the different cliche here. I guess it's how college is any part of the world.

  15. These campus categories fits the western style of schooling. For Oriental ones, I guess, we are more refined. But some of the categories mentioned fit in to our system. Back then, I belong to the Party Animal people.
