10 Things That Change From Your Freshman to Senior Year at Auburn

Some of these things you just have to take with a grain of salt. 

1. Friends on Facebook 

Freshman Year

You have no shame freshman year. Sat next to this one person for three minutes at Camp War Eagle? Sure! Search them on Facebook and friend request them immediately. YOU MUST HAVE FRIENDS.

Senior Year 

Who is this person and why did they just invite me to their event, "~*~Luau!!!~*~?" 

Unfriend. 

2. Relationships (or lack there of)

Freshman Year 

Create a board on Pinterest appropriately titled "Going to the chapel and we're going to get married." Pin engagement rings, mason jars and bite-sized h'orderves. Make a pact with your friends that you will be engaged by the time you're 24. 

Senior Year 

ANOTHER engagement? Seriously? I didn't even know she was dating someone! Dying alone. 

3. Ralph Brown Draughon Library 

Freshman Year

"Meet me at RBD — third floor, frat row. I heard it was on some magazine's list, 'Top 10 places to find your husband.'" 

Senior Year

Go to the library, get settled, listen to freshmen talk about band parties and yell across to other tables, make passive aggressive sigh noises, pack up your backpack as loudly as you can, travel back in time and scold your freshman year self. 

4. Ordering at Starbucks 

Freshman Year 

You've never actually ordered coffee before now, so you listen to what the person in front of you is getting. 

"I'll take a large, um, I mean Venti Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with extra whipped cream, please." 

Senior Year

Iced coffee. It runs through your veins at this point. 

5. Class

Freshman Year 

You figure you have four years to go to class. Why go now when there's an America's Next Top Model marathon on?

Senior Year

You regret that decision. Oh, and all of your classes are at night now. 

6. The Quad 

Freshman Year

"Want to meet me at GG's Chicken Salad and chillax in our ENO's?" 

Senior Year

Wait, why did they rename Lupton Deli? Is Sharlotte still working there? What about Manuel? 

7. Football games 

Freshman Year

Get there two hours before the game starts and pray to the football gods you can find a seat. 

Senior Year

Show up at kickoff. Can't find a seat. Go out to the Green Space. Make friends with some alumni. Eat leftovers from their Chick-fil-A nugget tray. Watch the game on their TV. Network a little. Send them an email the next day with your résumé attached. 

8. Going home on the weekends

Freshman Year 

It's been two weeks, three days, six hours, 22 minutes and 30 seconds since you last saw your friends from high school, but who's counting? Skip your biology lab, fill up your gas tank, crank up "Wrecking Ball" and drive home. 

Senior Year

Your parents have come to terms that you won't come home until Thanksgiving. 

9. Eating habits

Freshman Year

You eat a balanced meal of Chick-fil-A and Dippin' Dots because you have an absurd amount of money on your Tiger Card and a high metabolism. 

Senior Year

You no longer have either of those things, so you settle for a jar of peanut butter. It's non-perishable. 

10. Stress level

Freshman Year

You have a HUGE World History I exam next week. #panicking #stressed

Senior Year

You're graduating in May. Now what?
