Best Of Sylly Week 2022 Yik Yak

Now that students are back on campus, State College Yik Yak is back in full force. The social media app known for its anonymous posts by people in the local community was very active this week.

Since Sylly Week is when freshmen are trying to figure out how to college and upperclassmen are readjusting back to life at Penn State, the Yik Yaks are undoubtedly interesting. So, we compiled some of the best from the week for your viewing pleasure.

“I saw Katie feeney using google maps today”

Hey, Penn State is a big campus with a lot of buildings. Even in your second year, sometimes you need a little navigation help.

“Work sucks and school sucks I need someone to cuddle me”

My guy, it is only the first week! I hate to break it to you, but it will only get worse. We don’t have any suggestions for someone you can cuddle, but if things do seriously get worse, you should consider reaching out to CAPS.

“Damn baby say something freaky like you are proud of me and how hard I’m working”

We are proud of you and how hard you’re working.

“The campus would look a lot cooler with a few flamingos”

There’s a first for everything. We’ve had a bear on campus and that was exciting, so we suppose you’re right.

“The steps in forum are so awkward”

What exactly is your definition of awkward?

“Imagine how stupid u must be to wear a pitt shirt here”

Yeah. You can get away with wearing another school’s clothing, but there are some that are absolutely unacceptable. Let us help you out a little bit. Ohio State, Michigan, Iowa, Pitt, Indiana, and Auburn are a few that are strictly off limits.

“They should test your walking pace as part of PSU admissions so that slow ppl wouldn’t get accepted bro I can’t take y’all anymore”

Bro, just flick on your backpack turn signal and pass by them. It’s not like the sidewalks are non-passing lanes.

“Got nervous in class yesterday and asked a girl what school she goes to.”

At least you had something in common!

“someone duo push me off a cliff”

If you’ve got such a gripe with the push notification, try using the phone call.

“you sleep and party on sylly week you’re gonna be in for a not so illy 2.9 GPA”

You only live once.

“Deodorant is something you should start using in middle school yall. Get with it”

This is a valid point. In this heat, please make sure your deodorant is caked on as a courtesy to the rest of us. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to pack another stick in your bag for during the day, too.
