In school, every faculty can be identified through stereotypes. After all, that is what differentiates us from the rest of the student body.

Here are some stereotypes that you see daily in polytechnics and universities.

The chio businesswomen

Possibly the biggest faculty, business students are easily identifiable by their neat ties, cool blazers and crisp pencil skirts.

They are a crazy bunch, especially during camps. Do not be surprised to see a random camp tribe hashtag trending on Twitter, and a throng of Instagram posts after one of their energy-filled camps. The girls here are known to be exceptionally chio too.

 

CHIO ENOUGH FOR YOU?

 

The "sausage fest"

Engineering guys often complain about the lack of girls in their school. They like to call their faculty a “sausage fest”, and constantly wish for a female presence.

That said, these guys are no pushovers and some are well sought after by girls from other faculties. Especially those gym enthusiasts with fully defined six packs.

 

CAN YOU IMAGINE SCHOOL LIFE WITHOUT GIRLS?

 

The fashion showcase

Media students are well-versed in the entertainment scene and current affairs, and rightly so because news are an integral part of their curriculum.

They are known to be the fashionistas. Every lecture seems like a fashion show with most students dressing to impress. Coming to a lecture hall in a football jersey, shorts and slippers seems almost sacrilegious.

 

WELCOME TO FASHION SHOWS IN MEDIA SCHOOL.

 

The nurses

This is going to sound mean, but in some polytechnics, health science students are flatly labelled nurses.

They are also known to be extremely busy and easily have the worst timetables. 9am to 6pm schedules are common.

The hipster gang

This is the artsy-fartsy faculty, full of hipsters, music lovers and film junkies.

Arts students are known to be eloquent, albeit pretentious at times. These students love to listen to music genres that do not appeal to the masses, particularly jazz and classical music. They love to watch hipster French movies too, which again, nobody else watches.

 

TAKING THE ARTS TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL.

 

The tech squad

Again, another school with mostly a masculine populace. Many students here are known to be hardcore gamers because they spend most of their time in front of computers.

But they are great friends to have, because they will likely be your first point of contact when the school Wi-Fi poses a problem. With their in-depth knowledge on computer systems and networking, some could even be potential hackers.

 

IF YOU NEED HELP WITH YOUR WI-FI, CALL A FRIEND FROM IT!
