The Stages of Girl Scout Cookies on Campus as Told by Dogs

Spring is a wonderful season. With it comes the sunshine, flowers and skipping class to lay in the sun for the first time in months. Everyone breaks out their dresses and short sleeves and remembers what it’s like to be warm again. But one thing marks the true moment when spring has sprung on campus: Girl Scout cookies.

Girl Scouts coming to a college campus and selling their delicious goods is possibly the best business decision ever. Hungry and stressed college students are prime customers. Who doesn’t want cookies from cute little kids in uniforms? And a perk is that the Girl Scouts is a great organization. They support and empower girls; teaching life skills and smashing the patriarchy, one Tagalong at a time.  

So when the brown vests and purple boxes show up, students get excited. These are the stages of Girl Scout cookies coming to campus described by dogs, the next best things on campus.

1) Hearing about it

You heard it through the grapevine: Girl Scouts are on campus. You are probably having a lot of emotions: excitement, hunger, happiness or relief. Possibly even all of the above.

2) Locating

This is the part where you scan the campus on your way to and from classes for short people in brown vests. Once you find them, you may be late for your next class. And that’s okay. Missing class for cookies should be as acceptable as a family emergency (Not actually though, please go to class).  

3) Decision making

So you have found the cookies, now you have to choose what to buy. Sure, two boxes of everything would be ideal, but realistically you can’t even afford guacamole at Chipotle so that’s not happening. This means you have to make a choice. Thin Mints? Tagalongs? Caramel Delights? The choice can be overwhelming.

4) That first cookie

The first Girl Scout cookie of the season. Somehow it always exceeds expectations.

Support your local scouts and treat yourself to some cookies! Whether you share them with friends or stress eat them in the library during midterms, you always deserve a cookie.
