1. Wearing your lanyard.








This is one of those alternatives to just writing on your forehead “I’m new here.”

2. Carrying or visibly reading a map on your phone.








You were just trying to get to College Algebra when Siri shamelessly announced to all around you that you’re taking the next left.

3. Looking around confused.

You know what you did- when you just stood there scanning building names and then turned around to walk in the opposite direction that you came from. I’m sure nobody saw it.

4. Going to EVERYTHING.








The upperclassmen were trying to look out for you. They told you the floor meetings didn’t take attendance. You didn’t listen. What if the RA comes shaking down your door? I heard they withhold your degree if you don’t go to the new student convocation.

5. Scheduling an 8 am class on a Monday. Intentionally.
