The 5 People You’ll Meet in POG

proof-god-exists1Problem of God is the defining class of every freshman’s experience at Georgetown. It’s likely one of the first classes you’ll ever have attended on the Hilltop. You were probably nervous and anxious walking in, but left feeling pretty confident that you could write a few papers and pull off a decent grade (while of course enriching your understanding of Biblical texts along the way).

Seeing as how these classes tend to be a random assortment of students from across all majors, you’re also likely to meet a lot of other new Hoyas who will excitedly shriek “OH MY GOD, YOU TOTALLY SIT IN FRONT OF ME IN PROBLEM OF GOD!!!!!!” every single time you run into them at Brown House/SAE/Rugby. In order to encapsulate the true mix of students, 4E has compiled a list of the 5 people you’ll definitely meet in your POG class.

  1. The High School Valedictorian: Within the first few minutes of reviewing the syllabus in class, this student already had a million questions about how and when assessments will be graded. “Will there be a curve? When’s the final exam?? Do you offer bonus points?!?!” Don’t worry, no one has ever died in a POG class — yet.
  2. The Confused One: This student probably wandered into class late on the first day because they either forgot to set an alarm or originally went to the wrong classroom. They’ll often forget that you had assigned reading and will always ask to borrow a pencil before any exam.
  3. The Crazy Partier: This freshman looooves going out with all of their new best friends, and they’re not afraid to let you know. They’ll likely spend the few minutes before class asking if you know of any wild parties going on this weekend, even if it’s only Monday. But hey, at least they’re prepared!
  4. The GAAP Group Celeb: It’s only the first week of school and they’ve already become infamous given their overuse of the 2019 Facebook page. Needless to say, you were probably a little excited when you saw them walk into the room on the first day. While it’s not as exciting as meeting Bradley Cooper, you definitely still texted your new GroupMe “GUESS WHO’S IN MY CLASS!!!!!!”
  5. The Random Upperclassman: For whatever reason, this Hoya opted out of taking POG freshman year. Maybe they had some cool elective they took in place or just wanted to take POG when they were stuck in all 500 level classes. Either way, they’re just going to sit there and laugh at every typical freshman thing you say.


Jamming With Presidential Candidates


After Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio announced their candidacy, 4E started doing thorough research so we can tell you all who to support on Election Day. We scanned a few “Ready for Hillary” Facebook posts and read a article called “Five things to know about Marco Rubio” for some reliable information. #listiclesinformthemasses

The last “thing to know” about Marco Rubio was that “he speaks the language of younger voters.” Fun fact: he knows what a meme is and listens to Tupac and “Straight Outta Compton” by N.W.A.! Even though “Straight Outta Compton” was released seven years before I was born and Tupac died the year after, Rubio is still listening to rap music so he must be super hip.

As much as I was thrilled to find out that Marky Mark Rubio is down with the youths, I was mostly excited to hear that he has decided to share his love for music with the world.

That’s right, Marco’s got a Spotify playlist! His name is marco_rubio and he’s about to lay down the jams with a playlist called “What I’m Currently Listening To.”

It’s actually not bad. Our favorites are “Pumped up Kicks” by Foster the People, “Feel so Close” by Calvin Harris and “Changes” by our friend 2Pac.

4E enjoyed Marco Rubio’s favorite hits and we feel like we’ve learned a lot about the man – not just the candidate – by jamming with him.

Marco is a bit ahead of the game as no other candidate has shared his or her musical preferences on Spotify. So now 4E is calling on all of the candidates running for the presidency in 2016 to create a Spotify playlist for all of the “younger voters.”

The other candidates might not have as hip taste as Marco, but we’re sure they listen to a few songs we could work with. Either way we’d like to hear what pumps them up and get “turnt” with Hill-Dawg, DJ Cruz and Rowdy Randy.
