Freshman Guide: An Exploration of Collegiate Honors
We get it. It’s been a long eighteen years living with your parents at home, unless you’re Ralph, who has no parents and lives in an orphanage (haha go to hell Ralph). You’re stoked as hell for a life of no rules, parties, and long nights working towards your collegiate honors. It’s honestly all you think of as you wait for the school year to begin. “Cum Laude” is tattooed on the inside of your skull. Well hold your horny horses compadre. If you don’t know your egregia cum laude’s from your maxima cum laude’s, then stormy waters lie ahead for you on the quest to graduate with the highest of honors. Don’t be the new dumb kid on the block on the cross-section of Dingus Street and Numbnuts Avenue. Instead, use our guide to fully comprehend Northwestern’s wide variety of graduation honors so you can make your parents proud. Unless you’re Ralph.
