Add to the list: take a coordinated jumping photo on Low Steps

Hey, new first years! Yeah, you! In just a few weeks, you’re going to embark on one of the greatest, sweatiest, and cringiest experiences of your whole college career: NSOP. In order to make this experience the Best Ever, a few of us old timers here at Bwog have compiled an NSOP bucketlist (based on our own experiences) to make sure you get the most out of this wild week. 

  • Get a fake ID
  • Walk the Brooklyn bridge
  • Get into a bar with an ID that isn’t yours
  • Go to a Carman party
  • Go to the Museum of Sex
  • Do a photoshoot in your Carman room
  • Host a Carman party
  • Go to Coney Island!!
  • Smoke w**d in Riverside Park
  • Grab a friend, start walking in a random direction, and let yourself get super lost. Best way to explore the city.
  • Rush a Broadway show while you still have the energy to wake up super early for it
  • Go to Absolute Bagels
  • Go to Hungarian Bakery, but don’t bring a Tinder date there
  • Take advantage of your CUID and go to a museum for free
  • (Second the go to Hungarian)
  • Go to Suite
  • Get and get over a crush
  • Buy your own w**d for the first time
  • Go to 1020 using your fake ID (or get there before they start carding)
  • Ask a random person for a sign in to the dorm you’re trying to get into
  • Hang out on Low Steps
  • Buy alcohol at International
  • Hook up with someone from your sibling NSOP group
  • Hook up with someone from your own NSOP group
  • Sneak alcohol in your college-branded tote
  • Go to Smorgasburg before it closes!!
  • Try to push the tooth statue (officially known as three-way piece: points) near the International Affairs Building
  • Watch the sunset from the top floor of the International Affairs Building
  • Go to one of the “NYC Welcome Week” parties (I did this; I hated it, but it was definitely an experience)
  • Go to the 20th floor of EC and admire the view from the lounge before all the seniors move in and you feel awkward there

Note: Bwog does not condone the use of illegal substances.
