Throughout your time in college, you are going to meet a lot of different types of people. You’ll make friends who are completely different than anyone you have ever met before, and you’ll definitely find a few that remind you of people from home. To help guide you on who you will meet in college, here are their spirit foods.
1. The Stoner: Pizza
We all know that person who ditches class or is always hanging around some abandoned house with a joint. And what do they always want after a toke and a sesh? Pizza. This slice of heaven is easy to make and exactly what you crave when you have the munchies. Chowing down on a slice of delivery pizza is just the thing to hit the spot after a hit or when you wake up and are too lazy to make food.
2. The Fake Hippie: Açaí Bowl
They pride themselves on wearing thrift finds, but most of their wardrobe really consists of Urban Outfitters and American Apparel. These are the people who jump on the latest food trends like açaí bowls, which are healthy and delicious (but a true hippie would make it themselves with homegrown organic foods).
3. The Health Nut: Homemade Chia Seed Pudding
This person defies the stereotype of gaining the freshman fifteen and works out all the time while balancing classes. In their fridge, you will find plenty of fruits, veggies, and some delicious homemade chia seed pudding so they can start their day off right. These are the people who make their own food instead of living off of burgers and fries in the dining halls.
4. The Frat or Srat Star: Beer
When you think of the fratty and sratty people around campus, you might think of a barbecue, but in reality they aren’t even a food – they are just straight up beer. On the weekends, they are at a party pretending school doesn’t exist with a red Solo cup or a can of their favorite brew.
5. The Athlete: Protein Shakes
We all know who the athletes are at school cause they always rep school sports. They come to class with a big jug of water and a protein shake for when they go to practice later. Even when their season is done, they still have to have that shake for their gym time later.
6. The One Always Studying: Ramen
These are the people who always have their backpack with them. It feels like they don’t actually live anywhere but the classroom. When they have five minutes to break away from studying for their ten tests, they usually microwave up some ramen to go with their energy drink.
7. The One Involved with Everything: French Fries
This is the person you see everywhere around campus. They are in ten clubs, on student government, a chair in their sorority, at every sporting event, and perfectly on time for every class. And what food do we find everywhere? French fries. They are in every restaurant and come in a variety of different forms. Whenever you see this person out to eat you can bet they will chow down on some french fries.
8. The Super Spirited Student: Sprinkles
This is the person who leads every single cheer at every home game your school has. They are decked head to toe in school colors almost all the time. When they aren’t cheering for the school’s sports teams, they are probably enjoying something covered in sprinkles. Sprinkles are an essential accompaniment for a good dessert, just like an key fan in the stands.
9. The Artist: Obscure Yogurt Flavors
Artists are always trying something new, whether it be a new technique or an odd flavor of yogurt. Yogurt is a delicious and simple snack for the starving artist, or a quick bite between long studio hours. Plus, fruit yogurt can inspire both taste and color pallets.
Everyone is their own person, and their own food. Some people may be a sprinkle and you are pizza, but everyone you meet is awesome in their own way. So figure out which food you are, and your friends are, and go get that food. But make sure to not stick to one food category, and meet all the people and foods you can.
