Your NSOP 2011 Theme is “Taking Root, Branching Out”

Written by

Another tragic tree-themed romance

Take heed, 2015ers! “Taking Root, Branching Out” is this year’s NSOP vanilla, and will likely affect what goes on the t-shirts. It’s a clever choice of theme. It potentially encompasses two stalwarts of undergraduate enthusiasm, environmental awareness and diversity (how many of you wrote your college essays about your grandparents, or other miscellaneous relatives?). And of course it’s vague enough to mean pretty much nothing at all.

The infamous “NYC event,” where freshpeople are herded to a prominent city location and encouraged to dance to self-consciously until 11 pm, will take place this year on Governors Island. The Water Taxis full of frosh floating out across the Hudson will be a sight to behold. Freshpeople, it’s probably worth going to, but bear in mind that you don’t have to go to every NSOP event. It’s much more fun to read about them on Bwog!

    I'm still waiting for Columbia to make up for that shitty Victorian Gardens event they gave us during NSOP. Preferably in subsidized alcohol.

  5. That awkward moment

    when the freshperson you're hitting on turns into a laurel tree.
