OMG: Frosh week was really hype and the atmosphere at the university was so amazing. Then O - week ended and the upper years came. it seems like the shitty stereotype of the boring and unsocial-ness of waterloo comes from the upper classmen (who are actually really rude). If this uni was just froshies, it would be a million times more exciting.

  1. Let's wait it out a few more years and see what you have to say about this when you're finally in your 3rd or 4th year, and see if you're still as excited about waterloo then!
    your fellow upperclassman

  3. You haven't been through the academic wringer yet. Ah, beautiful hope and optimism: how soon they will be crushed.

  4. We're not rude; we're just tired. Keep your over inflated peppiness to yourself.

  7. Upper-years aren't rude, but they are busier than you, and they've gone through multiple layers of hell to get where they are.

    If some of them have been short with you, I'm sorry, there's no excuse. But try to at least understand their position, and know that you will be one of them before long.

  8. Wait till you are in an upper year program that requires a decent amount of work, unless you are in some bullshit ass program like arts/psych etc. We're fucking exhausted. Try balancing 40 hours of class and balancing job applications and smiling 24/7. You're version of rude is probably just "upper years don't smile or say thank you when I open the door for them".

    Fuck off

    1. Somewhat agreed but I disagree with the "bullshit ass program like arts/psych etc". There are some difficult arts programs. In my opinion, PSYCH could be one. I've done some PSYCH courses that were more time consuming and difficult than many of my CS courses.

  9. If you're so cool we'll see if upper years will become cool in a year.

    OR, and this is a great hypothesis "cool" kids can't handle UW and are kicked out in first year.

    1. Nailed it. This is just natural selection in action. Survival of the fittest. And the fittest at UW = Antisocial/hard working. Shape up or move on, op.

  10. You have to remember that not all first years go to orientation week too. People who aren't as excited as you will self-select out of orientation week because it costs money and they don't want to do it.

  11. Just gonna point out the fact that the people who basically organized and ran your orientation were all upper years...

    Also its not just upper years but also first years who "gasp" start being less social when the school term actually starts.

    1. To elaborate, don't you think all the upper years have been through the same O-week experience? We've all had the experience of that open and carefree environment, but now things actually matter. People get anxiety, stress, and depression from having to compete with each other for marks and jobs and over the years it really takes its toll. Don't worry about it because you'll see in a few months how competitive things can get - or maybe not cause you might be gone already.
