In college there are two kinds of people, the party
animal, and The sober guy. The sober guy stays out of trouble,
studies hard, and sometimes keeps to himself. The party animal
studies (most of the time), never avoids trouble, and socializes.
A party animal is always at the party, in line for the keg.
He usually shows up early and partys too late. Rarely would one
see the sober guy at a college party. The party animal never
cares about the brand of beer in the keg. On the other hand the
sober guy, if he partakes in alcohol induced activities, would
chose an imported bottled beer; for example, Corona with a twist
of lime. Chances are that the party animal's favorite beer is
Natural Light in a can, only if it's on sale.
The sober guy is always prepared for a quiz. A party animal
usually studies for a quiz twenty minutes before class begins. He
also misses his classes frequently. Sometimes, when the party
animal shows up for class they are hungover. Often, a party
animal's grades are affected by attendance. On the other hand,
the sober guy is always on time for class, awake, and without a
The party animal is usually a popular guy. People are always
saying hi to him or waving to him on campus. Most of the time he
doesn't even remember who they are. The sober guy goes to class
and that's it. He usually has the business before pleasure
attitude. Once finished with the days studies he will then hang
out with his friends.
These are just two stereotypes of people on campus. They
are almost exact opposites. The party animal doesn't avoid
trouble, has poor study habits, and is very social. While the
sober guy has excellent grades, stays away from trouble, and
isn't as social.
