Your name is on the list. You’ve got admission to the college of your choice. Congratulations! You’re in for the best time of your life, and you have no idea … do you? Let me help. Here are the kind of people you’ll meet in college.

Also, if you’re already in college, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered too. No matter which college you go to, you’re bound to run into these folks. You’ll agree!

1. The front benchers:

The front benchers still think they’re in school. They’ll show up to class 5 minutes early. They’ll pay attention to every word the professor says. They’ll read the textbook before class and answer all the questions. They probably eat their lunch in the library. You can join them if you want to geek out through your college life.

2. Bade baap ki bigdi aulaad :

While you suffer the commute to college in a train or bus, this guy shows up in his swanky red BMW. He never keeps time but wears a new Tag Heuer watch every day of the week. He uses a Mont Blanc pen to scribble in his book. He wears Diesel jeans to college! Only his lunch bill could be paid with your entire month’s pocket money.

3. The enthu cutlet :

She’s the only one to agree to bonus marks assignments. You’ll find her name first on the list for extracurricular activities. She organises the college excursions. And is obviously the professor’s favourite. She’s basically the Energizer Bunny of the class.

4. The guy you’re always giving proxy for:

Once again, this guy overslept. So, he’s either late or missing the first few lectures. He messages you and asks you to give his proxy. And you do it every time. Because apart from his inability to wake up on time, he’s a really fun guy.

5. The one who wants to take it outside:

God forbid, you say something contrary to this one’s opinion. S/he’s always ready to pick a fight and beat you down. You usually tiptoe around this person. You definitely don’t want another bruised arm for nothing.

6. The annoying couple that calls each other baby:

The couple that sits together, eats together, leaves together and makes your life miserable together. They’re a personification of cheesy. They’re always holding hands and calling each other ‘baby’, ‘ sweetu ’, ‘honey’ and other sugary terms. They’re so mushy, they give you diabetes.

7. The ones who come to college dressed to party:

For her, every day is a Saturday and every night is a party. She comes to college wearing 3 layers of make-up, sequinned top, hot shorts and heels. All the classroom is missing is a shiny disco ball or she’d be dancing on benches like they were bar tops.

8. The guy who has ‘real work’ to do:

This guy is working for the future in the present. He has an actual job or at least an internship. All his college assignments and extracurricular activities are going in to his portfolio. He runs to office after college and doesn’t have time to waste. When college is over, he’ll already be a director in the company.

9. The pirate king:

He stays up at night and downloads entire seasons of Game Of Thrones. He has at least three 2TB hard drives. If you feel like watching a new movie, you go to him and he’ll give it to you on a pen drive. He has all the music you need ever. This guy is your endless supply of entertainment.

10. The future Prime Minister of the country:

Politics is their way of life. They are always fighting for students’ rights and equality. They actually have connections with ministers and officials. They’re the ones who bring in the chief guests for college functions. And they have lofty ambitions of running the Government one day.

11. The self-appointed official photographer:

He roams around with a DSLR hung around his neck. You’ve got your profile picture clicked by him and it has a 100 likes and counting. There are always two group photos; one without him and one with him. He sets the frame in the first click and asks a passerby to click the group picture. He’s the one responsible for special moments to be captured forever.

12. The out-of-towner :

He came to the college in your city for a better education. You take great joy in showing him around. You share your dabba with him because he misses home food. And in exchange, you use his place to partay! Everyone ends up at his pad after hours because he lives alone.

College is going to introduce you to all kinds of people. You’re going to pick from them and make some amazing friends for life. So, go ahead and have a good time.
