10 GIFs That Accurately Describe What It’s Like To Be A Student At Rutgers University

Every student at Rutgers University knows they have a great lifestyle at one of the best universities. We’ve put together a list of GIFs that accurately describe what it’s like to be a student at Rutgers University, that is guaranteed to be relatable!

1. When you have an 8:30AM class.

Getting up early is already a hassle for most college students, but it’s even worse when you’ve got to drag yourself out of bed even earlier to catch a bus to get to your 8:30AM class. No matter how uncomfortable your bed is, it always feels like your soul mate when you have to get up in the morning.

2. Eating a fat sandwich.

A Rutgers classic, especially at 2AM before drunkenly stumbling home after a party.


3. Trying to get on a bus at peak times.

Especially trying to get on an LX at the Scott Hall bus stop. It’s impossible to avoid the savage crowd of people shoving each other out of the way, just to cram yourself onto an overcrowded bus like in a clown car and spend the entire ride awkwardly pressed up against a stranger.

4. Watching a Rutgers football game.

So…how ‘bout that Michigan game…And just a friendly reminder, the football players get free tuition.

5. Checking your bank account at the end of the semester.

Let’s face it, the one thing we all have in common is that we’re poor college students, and we all face the same woes of trying to convert $2.53 into a decent meal or eating cereal for dinner three nights in a row, just to save money.

6. Eating at Brower.

There’s always the brief hesitation where you ask yourself, “Is this really edible?” before saying, “No, probably not,” and then proceeding to eat cereal instead.


7. Missing a weekend bus.

The regular buses are already a pain, but nothing hurts more than the realization that you just missed a weekend bus when the next one is in 45 minutes.

8. Getting food somewhere on Easton Ave. at 1AM.

Whether you’re sobering up and need something to eat or your eating schedule is so messed up that dinner is 1AM, somehow you always find yourself getting food on Easton Ave. for those late night cravings.

9. Trying to explain what’s wrong with you at Hurtado.

It’s just not the same when they’re not YOUR doctor, not to mention trying to explain everything during your 15 minute appointment that you booked three weeks in advance is just too much sometimes.

10. Finally graduating!

Realizing that now you’re a “real adult” about to go off into the “real world” with “actual responsibilities”…or just continuing onto grad school.
