A college campus is the most diverse and best place to meet new and interesting individuals, especially at a big university like Hofstra containing about 6,840 undergraduates only, not even factoring in graduate students. Though, like the movie Mean Girls (2004) every campus has the same type of people.
These 6 types of people can be easily spotted the next time you walk through the student center.
The Social Butterflies
The social butterflies are the really enthusiastic and optimistic kind. They are really friendly and converse with anyone. They can be seen always socializing at the student center between their class breaks. These social butterflies are the ones who have the most friends and are always the best people to talk to about what is going on campus.
These are those people every parent wishes their kid would be like and every student wishes they were. These people are involved in everything on campus from student government to any event on campus. They do not need to pull all-nighters like most people need to do, school is like second nature to him. These people can take 18 credits a semester, be involved in 4-5 clubs on campus, do research and internships, still manage to get 8 hours of sleep and still have a raging social life.
The loner is the person who, as the name states, is always alone and all right with it. He/She can be seen eating alone and sitting at an empty table. They tend to be antisocial and content with staying as such. They prefer to keep to themselves and tend to have their headphones in while they are eating or studying to keep isolation.
The freshmen are the easiest to spot since they stick out the most. They are the most adorable, young looking, optimist, and hopeful bunch of people. Everything is so new for them. They are enjoying and taking advantage of their newly found freedom. The stress of college, loans, and classes has yet to hit them. These freshmen can be seen walking around with their roommates and/or suitemates and lanyards of their dorm keys around their necks.
The Couples That Never Parts
There is always that one couple that can be seen together every minute of the day. For these couples, the world does not exist. Both are so content with each other that they do not need anyone else. They can mostly be spotted in a corner kissing or hugging. The term too much “PDA” (public display of affection does not even concern them.
The Sorority/Fraternity Clone
The sorority sister or fraternity brother is the person that is always and only seen with their pledged Greek house. They, for the most part, only associate with their own house, and always travel in packs of 4-5. They can be easily spotted representing their house letters on all the shirts/sweatshirts or sweats they wear. They are very dedicated and their sisters/brothers come before all for them. They can mostly be seen at tables at the student center setting up for fundraisers or organizing events for causes.
