The 7 Coolest People You’ll Meet in College


Everyone knows that college is all about meeting people. Between close friends, mentors and acquaintances, you’re probably going to meet more people than you’ll be able to remember by the time you graduate. We’ve narrowed down the coolest people you’ll meet in college who are definitely worth remembering down the road (and who make the journey worth the reward)!

1. The person who’s going places

We’re all going somewhere in life, but this acquaintance of yours is going to be the next Mark Zuckerberg or even the next president. This is the person you will tell people you knew back in college once he or she is famous. This friend is next-level smart, and though you may not always follow what he or she is talking about (like, ever), you’re still fascinated.

2. The hot TA

Sometimes it’s really hard to pay attention in class when all you want to do is stare at him (we know your pain!). Then again, he makes you want to do better, so you might even participate more than you usually would. Why not get noticed and learn something at the same time, right? It’s not a crush you would ever act on, but it’s fun to just sit there and daydream.

3. Your bestie/other half

You may have met her your freshman year first semester, or maybe you’re about to meet her! Regardless, you’re pretty sure she’s your long-lost twin. You binge-watch the same TV shows on Netflix, share each other’s closets, fight over the same celebrity crush and finish each other’s sentences. MFEO, y’all.

Haven’t found your bestie yet? No worries. There’s an app for that! Skout is the leading app for meeting new people and expanding your social circle, and it’s by far the easiest way to find a friend who shares your Mean Girls quoting habit, your love of Crossfit or your obsession with all things Beyoncé.

4. The live-in faculty member

A ton of universities have them, and they become your unofficial moms and dads. They’re awesome because they often invite you and a group of students to their place to talk (about non-school work!) and play board games. Plus, they usually give out free food. Feeling like a grown-up yet? You will when you chill with the faculty! Prepare to feel intelligent, appreciated and totally sophisticated (after all, where else are you going to find a cheese-and-cracker get-together on campus?!).

5. The friend you met while abroad

You’re still reeling over the fact that you’re back in the states. If you had a choice, you would’ve stayed across the pond forever and hung out with this friend who took you around to see the sights (even if it was beyond touristy for a local) and introduced you to the yummiest foreign foods ever. From this friend, you got that certain je-ne-sais-quoi that has everyone back on campus talking. Why? Well, you’ve become cooler simply by association and influence. Plus, you’ll always have someone to talk to when you need a fresh perspective or a break from your campus bubble! Want to meet some more friends across the globe? Skout can help!

6. The professor you can’t seem to crack

This professor is a genius, but he also scares the living daylights out of you. He’s really tough on the outside, but you know there’s a softie in there beneath the stern looks and mountains of homework assignments. Once you finally get to know him by senior year, you realize he’s actually kind of your hero, and you feel like you can accomplish anything.

7. The friend with all the connections

The person who has her campus social life on lock isn’t in your inner circle of friends, but you kind of wish she was. She knows the coolest places to take you, tells you about the best places to eat and is the one everyone knows (and acknowledges) the second she walks into a room. Seriously, how does she have so many friends?! Maybe it’s time for you to branch out of your social circle and meet new people.

If you haven’t come across these types of people yet, don’t worry! Skout can help you in that department (maybe not with the hot TA, but only time will tell). Once you sign up, you can browse through thousands of profiles and chat with people in your area (or anywhere around the world, depending on how you set it). Who knows? One of them could become your next weekly fro-yo date, your study buddy or even your bestie (like, bridesmaid-status bestie)!
