30 Things You’ll Never Hear a Georgetown Student Say


Inspired by recent use of the hashtag #OverheardAtGeorgetown and this article, we at 4E decided to compile a list of things you’ll never hear a Georgetown student say under any circumstances:

1. Dinner at Leo’s was delicious tonight
2. I can’t wait to take Intro to Philosophy
3. The core curriculum allows me so much freedom in my choice of courses
4. The GUTS buses are so reliable
6. The seating in the new student center is so practical
7. Salad Creations is way better than Sweetgreen
8. Burnett’s tastes so good
9. Pre-registration is so simple
10. I love not having a metro stop on campus
11. The weekend hours of Leavey Starbucks and Cosi are ideal
12. I don’t want to talk about how cool my internship is
13. Of course I did the reading for this class
14. I’m not busy today
15. The elevators in Darnall/Copley/Lau are so fast
16. No it’s fine, I didn’t want to live off campus anyway
17. The construction maze is not annoying
18. I love the rats in my Henle – they’re my friends
19. I’ve never had to wait in a line here
20. I love how quiet Lau 2 is
21. I really enjoy spending my time in a cube on Lau 5, especially now that there is no bathroom or water fountain
22. The hand dryers in the freshmen dorms really dry my hands
23. I don’t make fun of weird kids who post in the GAAP groups over the summer
24. I fully support the 2010 Campus Plan
25. Pulling an all-nighter in Lau has been the highlight of my Georgetown experience so far
26. My meal plan is such a good value
27. I wish this campus had more hills
28. SaxaNet is really fast and consistent
29. Epi is so reasonably priced
30. What hookup culture?

Hoyas come from all over and it can be hard to discover our common ideas and interests. Finding things we all love to hate – meal plans, campus housing, rules in general – and complaining endlessly about them will forever be something that keeps us together.
