Luckily, going to a small school means having a tight knit community. We have inside jokes, similar experiences and unspoken knowledge about what one another is going through. And, even if you’ve never met the person you pass on Scholar’s Walk every single day, chances are, they’ll find the same things about Winthrop annoying, awesome and…scary.
With Halloween just around the corner, we thought it’d be fun to make a collection of things that *only* Winthrop students will understand and *only* Winthrop students will find scary. So, grab your teddy bear and night light and prepare yourselves because this list is TERRIFYING.
They’re cute and all…until they fall on you and you squish them in your hair. RIP little, scary wormies.
Chick-Fil-A never opening
We knew it was too good to be true.
We understand this is a great program for college students to take but spending three hours watching cheesy videos is pretty darn scary.
It’s all fun and games until someone gets diarrhea.
The only available parking space being in the back of legion
Well, at least it’s good exercise, right???
Finding no room in the library during finals week…
….Or finding a seat but not being able to focus because all your friends are there.
Having a class in Rutledge right after having a class in Sims
*cries the entire trek across campus*
The line at Starbucks or Einsteins
This is what keeps me up at night.
Seems like they haven’t been cleaned since…ever.
Price of tuition going up
What are we paying so much for in the first place?!
Getting a treadmill at the West Center that doesn’t have a working TV
Well, guess that means I can’t work out!
Finding dried food on a fork in Thomson
Walk2Campus finding out about your pet
Why do we have to pay extra for our pet staying with us? Shouldn’t they be paying us for bringing such a cute creature into their lives?!
Luke’s (a.k.a the only fun bar) closing down
This would be horrifying. Where would we dance on the weekends?!
No one answering your post on a WU Facebook page
It’s already scary enough posting on it in the first place.
Only one working dryer in the dorm hall
What did we do to deserve this?!
Walking all the way to class to find a sign on the door saying class is cancelled
COME ON! You couldn’t have emailed us?!
Not finishing your cultural events on time
Does anyone actually finish them before senior year?
Seeing PDA on your way to class
We get it…you’re in love. But stop making out in front of Owens, you’re gonna see each other in an hour and you’re gonna make me late for class.
Running out of cafe cash…in the first month of school
We’d probably run out the first week if Chick-fil-a actually ever opened….
Getting your space request rejected
DARN IT! I just spent so much time writing it!
Not being able to relax during common time and having to actually do stuff
Ugh…I hate having to do stuff.
Not graduating on time
This is a horror story based on true events because like….does anyone ever graduate on time here???
Or actually *FINALLY* graduating
Maybe Winthrop keeps us here so long because they know the real world sucks. Aw, thanks WU, I guess you aren’t so bad. As scary as Winthrop can be, we’re all lucky to go here and be getting a great education!
Do you have any scary things to add to the list?! Then share this article and write what scares YOU the most at WU! Happy Halloween, Collegiettes!
