The studying has been done. The finals have been taken. The papers have been written. All that’s left to say is . . . Congratulations, Hoyas! You made it through this year! All that’s left to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the summer (read as: intern, take classes and perform endless hours of unpaid labor to increase your human capital/build your resume until school begins again).
When and if — we’ll miss you, seniors — you return to campus this fall, some things will be the same. Rhino and Wisey’s will still be here, and we’re still going to call ourselves the Hoyas. But some things at GU are going to be radically different when you come back. Take a look:
You’re going to be in a different grade
This is for realz. You’re movin’ on up! Freshmen, you’re no longer freshmen. That means that you can’t make stupid mistakes anymore or ask where buildings are. You can’t walk around on Prospect Street in herds listening for noise and hoping to gain entry to a swanky soiree. People will judge you.
Sophomores, you’re now juniors. You now have to start actually thinking about the real world. So basically, you’ll look like this:
Juniors, you are now seniors! As in, the big kids. The head honchos. The ones who will be GRADUATING in the spring. It’ll be a bit like this:
But also like this:
You get to take new classes!
Remember that one class that you just absolutely despised last semester? It’s gone! So it’ll probably make you feel like this:
Unfortunately, you will still have to take some sort of classes though…
…but who cares?!
You’ll have new fun stories to tell from this summer!
Whether you traveled the world and had some crazy adventures…
Or did absolutely nothing and will have to make up something so you don’t sound like a loser.
And if you’re a junior, you AREN’T going to have to eat at Leo’s!
When you get back, you’re still going to read The Fourth Edition every day!
And the biggest change of all when you return:
They’re making Lau look pretty like Healy!
See you next year, Hoyas!
