Freshmen say the darndest things. It’s hard to walk around this campus (or read its blogs) without coming across something rather strange/funny/sad/privileged/offensive/squirrel-y. NSOP often times provides the most diverse selection of these overheard statements or overseen events, and so we want you to send them to us! The best submission will win a free boxset of first semester LitHum books (generously donated by Book Culture), the perfect gift for friends and family!

As ever, shoot us an email at

One freshman to another: Oh, you live by the south of France? We used to have a house there.

Tues night at the Heights:

Guy: “so if I add you on Facebook, can we chat more?”

… Overly eager freshmen

“Wait, you’re telling me that you’re planning on getting a fake ID just to watch Doctor Who?”

We’re pretty confident that people are saying funnier things, so cup your ears and crane your necks. It’s all for a good cause, after all.
