College Students Are Back

The freshmen are in town.  I’ve seen a lot of tour groups riding the subway.  I know they are tour groups because one kid has a t-shirt on that says “orientation leader.”

I guess part of the orientation process is learning how to get around the city.  If so, that’s pretty cool that they take the out of town kids around to get them acclimated to city life.

I overheard some in depth discussions about uptown vs downtown and express vs local…haha.

Honestly, the orientation leaders should just talk about the subway and stops in terms of bars.  Instead of calling the stop West 4th Street, call it Off the Wagon, Down the Hatch, and 124 Rabbit Club…etc.

One thought on “College Students Are Back

  1. What about the regular grade school kids and private school kids? I finally realize in the first week of July that the kids are done commuting and my commute is less crowded. And I know it should be more crowded now with kids in school but I have not seen it like that yet. Probably have to wait till the weather is a little colder to see the major impact on the subway.
