We all know that there are some pretty stark differences between upperclassmen and lowerclassmen in college. Some regard the transition from young to less young (we’re not calling ourselves old yet) as a sort of metamorphosis that one goes through after finals their sophomore year. As the class of 2019 begins their metamorphosis, we decided to create a quiz that will accurately predict which side of college you are on.


  1. Which nights do you typically go out?
    1. All of the nights
    2. Usually Thursday and Friday
  2. How many units are you in?
    1. 13
    2. 18
  3. Views on Crossroads?
    1. Worst food ever.
    2. Swipe me in please!
  4. How many friends have you made this year?
    1. 20+
    2. Maybe 3…
  5. It’s Sunday night — where do you eat dinner?
    1. Eatsa
    2. Smart Alec’s!! Oh wait…
  6. How many 8 a.m.s are you currently enrolled in for fall 2017?
    1. 2-4
    2. 0-1
  7. How do you feel about frat parties?
    1. I’m at one right now.
    2. Not so keen on them
    1. You’re an incoming freshman or sophomore! Enjoying being a little lowerclassman for as long as you can, because before you know it, you’ll be a judgy junior. And if you’re not an incoming freshman or sophomore, we guess you’re just young at heart!
    2. You’re an incoming junior or senior! Even though some people say this is the downward slope of college, don’t listen to them! Junior and senior year are fun in different ways, so don’t you fear! If you’re an incoming freshman or sophomore reading this, we guess you’re just very advanced.
