19 Things You’ll Experience Your First Year at CBS (in GIFs)
1. Frantically searching for the right lecture room in Dalgas Have’s demonic maze of ill-labelled classrooms.
1Ø089?? WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN, DALGAS?
2. Student Society Day means free coffee. Free coffee everywhere.
3. Running late for a lecture due to DSB’s refreshingly alternative approach to logistics.
4. Standing with your nose in an armpit on the overcrowded Metro.
…and trying desperately not to make eye contact, because that’s how the Danes roll.
5. Arriving late to class after spending half the morning trying to find a spot for your bike.
6. Entering Solbjerg Library, only to realize you’ve forgotten to book a study seat.
7. Somehow managing to find an empty study seat, only to find it’s been booked.
Always too good to be true.
8. Removing some peasant who thinks they can steal the study seat that YOU booked.
9. The Traditional Annual E-Campus Administrative Clusterfuck.
Usually around late October, right when first-quarter grades are out! : D
10. Freaking out with your classmates over your first closed-book exam.
11. Responsibility Day – ’nuff said.
12. Walking into the urine-soaked dungeon that is the unisex Nexus bathrooms on a Thursday night.
13. Heading straight to Nexus from your last Thursday lecture.
14. Heading straight to your Friday morning lecture from Nexus.
15. CBS’ inability to provide their students with the exact time of their oral exams.
You just get like, a four-hour time frame in which it may be scheduled, and then you have to sit in a room and wait anxiously with each other until it’s your turn. All the groups try to make awkward small talk with each other. Seriously, it’s the worst.
16. That guy whose phone always starts ringing mid-lecture.
17. New semester means new subjects. New subjects means new textbooks. New textbooks means spending your entire monthly food budget on a book titled, “The Company in its Historical and International Setting: A Discourse on Capitalistic Development and its Economic and Historical Theories.”
That book must be priced by the number of syllables in its title.
