10 Big Decisions for Freshmen

Paul Palumbo

Leutner or Fribley?
Fribley is really far away, but you heard the food there is better. Also you still don’t know how to pronounce “Leutner.”

High Five or Fist-Bump Officer Mark?
High fives are classic, but a fist bump is more personal and generally feels cooler.

Which Residential College Should I choose?
Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Slytherin or Gryffindor? What color free shirt you get is going to dramatically change your college experience.

Which clubs do you join?
You’ve joined like 20 clubs in the first week, now which ones do you stay with? Fencing? Scuba Diving? You don’t know what Medieval Combat Club is, but it sounds fun.

Ramen or Easy-Mac?
Easy-Mac is delicious and easy to make, but what self-respecting college student doesn’t have ramen?

Sleep or Party?
It sounds like there’s a crazy party going on, but you’ve heard that maybe two hours of sleep is a tad unhealthy. But, no one remembers the nights that they get a good night’s sleep.

Eat my roommate’s snacks?
Technically they’re not your Oreos, but it’s not like he’ll notice if you take one or two or seven, right?

Where do I go for dinner?
There are like 50 restaurants on Euclid, and you want to try all of them at least once before the semester ends. Meal swipes are essentially worthless, anyway.

Does ice cream count as a meal?
Is that a question?

Dress nice or casual?
It’s important to look your best, but are you willing to wake up earlier to do this? Casual it is.
