From Wildkittens to Wildcougars: A GIF Journey from Freshman to Senior Year at Northwestern

2 Sep

Dear Class of 2017,

Three short years ago the class of 2014 shuffled at the pace of a dehydrated desert tortoise because everyone’s parents felt the need to take photos every five steps marched through the arch and commenced the drunk, sweaty adventure that was Wildcat Welcome 2010. In a few weeks, we’re really looking forward to sitting on our front porches, drinking beer that isn’t Busch Light, and watching you wander aimlessly as you try to find that awesome party near the corner of Maple and Simpson.

Right now, you guys might be thinking “Oh, we’re all probably sooo much smarter than the seniors because the admission rate was sooo much higher when they got in. I bet they were all only president of four or five clubs in high school and assistant editor of the paper. What losers.” You guys are probably right: We are way more stupid than you. You kittens just need to remember that you may be the “strongest” in NU’s history “by academic standards” and caused the “the lowest admit rate ever” (you can’t make this stuff up, seriously), but Northwestern seniors went to high school in an era where we didn’t have Instagram to make us look pretty in our prom pics. We had to learn to fake being attractive the old fashioned way.

So, Class of 2017, you may have the brains, but we’ve still got the (less repulsive) looks. Bottom line: We are (sort of) pretty and we have no fucks left to give. Can’t wait to see you on campus! Go ‘Cats!

In the meantime, here are some GIFs representing the transformative journey you’re about to undertake.

Wildcat Love,
The Class of 2014
