Each new year brings with it a sense of opportunity, new beginnings, and a freshness not otherwise felt. To a select group of parents and students though, it also brings feelings of terror, panic, dread and unease. What could possibly mar this otherwise perfect time of year?
College admission essays.
Is this much-feared task really worthy of all the drama it generates? Absolutely. A student with perfect grades and test scores can easily get tossed into the reject pile if the essay isn’t up to snuff. On the other hand, a top-notch essay can save an otherwise underachiever.
Oh, flash mobs. How we love thee. Any excuse to get rambunctious and cause wide spread mayhem is usually enjoyed by all.
If you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know what a flash mob is, here you go: a flash mob is a group of people who seemingly appear out of thin air to perform an unusually and basically pointless act for a brief time and then disperse. Thanks, Wikipedia, for that.
But using a bunch of fancy words to describe the phenomenon is not nearly as impressive as observing it.
In order to observe some of the best flash mobs out there, we turn to the world’s best and brightest – college students. Our college years are packed full of valuable learning experiences – walks of shame, all night study sessions, keg stands, tailgating…and flash mobs. At what other point in time are random acts of disruption better received?
Being a student does not mean lectures, exams, and boring college parties only. A student life is your great chance to join something more than just a group of people who try to get the same type of diploma; and when we say “something more”, we mean Greek organizations (do not confuse them with anything related to Greece!). Wanna feel yourself a protagonist of a high school movie? Welcome to Greek life then!
Greek life is a life of fraternities and sororities, and every freshman is welcome to join them, though some nuances should still be taken into account before doing that. So, make sure you’ve read our guide to Greek life for every student to find out if he is ready to live it in college, and whether he wants to do that at all.
