    Obvious Freshman are Obvious.

    So, seeing as we probably have some Freshman on this board I thought I would take a second to address some things that make Freshman, well, Freshman. Feel free to help me with my list.

    1.) Carrying key's to dorm rooms on a lanyard around your neck/in your pocket (with lanyard hanging out of pocket)

    2.) Carrying Beer in backpacks across campus (Yes, we can see the individual cans in your backpack, you are not being sneaky).

    3.)Asking where a building that you are standing in front of is (yes, I'm talking to you freshy).

    4.) Getting drunker than hell and yelling as loud as you can down Lincoln way at 12:00 AM (yes you are a lightweight, no need to yell about it).

    5.) Carrying those "backpacks" you get from destination Iowa Sate around and using it like a real backpack IT'S NOT A REAL BACKPACK!

    6.)Walking out in front of cars and not even looking to see if there is anyone coming (you are lucky that my car has good brakes, also a good horn I found out).

    Anyways this isn't a hate on Freshman thread, just funny things that I have noticed over my many years living in Ames. Feel free to add on, maybe we can help some Freshman out!

    This is not exclusive to freshman.

    Nothing wrong with being naive! I'd love to relive that year again.

    I always have my keys on a lanyard, with said lanyard hanging out of my pocket and I'm way beyond freshman...graduated, to be exact. It's when the keys are with the student ID in that little pouch thing on a lanyard that it's definitely a freshman.

    Also, showing your student ID to board the orange bus = noob.

    Re: Obvious Freshman are Obvious.

    I'm no longer a freshman but I'd like to point out a few things. Some people legitimately use real backpacks to carry stuff so if they use it for books then it technically IS a real backpack. Also, It's not about being sneaky, everybody knows what's in there...but you are much less likely to get into trouble if you have one.

    I do #6 even when I go back to Ames. Something about being in a college town means you don't have to stop and look for traffic.

    I'll add:

    Pulls map out of pocket/backpack to find next class but likely still gets lost.
