Freshmen Tweets From Syllabus Week

The first week of freshman year is by far the most exciting week of college. You’re thrown into East Halls (or South or West if you’re lucky, I say) with 8,000 of your closest friends in one mess of ice breakers, free stuff, and drunkenness.

It’s a lot of fun, but it’s also funny for those who have been there before to see freshmen acclimate to a new lifestyle. With that in mind, here are the best freshmen tweets from the first week:

(The James Franklin selfie in question.)

A lot of freshmen already complaining about the walk to class. Just wait until it’s 10 degrees and cascading snow, kids.

We don’t recommend that as a lifestyle.

Some things never change…

Once again, we don’t recommend this lifestyle.

And there you have it. So, freshmen, while you may dislike the long walks or the uncomfortably hot dorm rooms, never forget that you go to the best damn school in the country. Because although it may not seem like it, four years will go faster than you think.
