1) The person addicted to Lazy.
You know the type, you walk into their room and their trashcan is overflowing with Lazy boxes, and the smell of chicken fingers lingers in the air. You probably never see them in the caf, and they are the first to run out of meal equivs. Probably not the healthiest diet, but hey, at least they are happy :)

2) The person who always has an "address".
As a first year, you spend a lot of time searching for an “address.” Which basically means some house in the ghetto that’s having a party and will let you in off the street to join them. Some people always seem to have an address and places to go after the pre in res. You don’t quite understand how, but are happy that they do. Party on!

3) The person who never has an "address".
On the flip side, this person never has an address and can be found lurking the halls at 10:30 on a Friday bumming around for a group that has an address that will take their sorry ass.

4) The local Kingstonian.
Because the first year in res is such a huge part of Queen’s student life often people from Kingston will still choose live in res. Chances are you will have a local Kingstonian on your floor. Befriend them right away because they know what places take fakes, and where to get the best poutine. Also they may even invite you back to their house for a home cooked meal.

5) That person from a far, super cool location.
Different from the local, but just as cool, this is the kid who is from some random country that you've only heard of on Amazing Race. You thought we were all just preppy, upper middle class white kids? Ha! We fooled you. Queen’s actually does have a large international population and getting to meet people so different from you is part of the fun.

6) The Common Room Crew
Every floor has a group of people that make the common room “their” place. They probably do some actual cooking in there, hangout, watch TV and basically use the common room for all the things it’s supposed to be used for. Other people use it, but everyone knows whose turf it is. Note: this crew is an endangered species at Queens as in some residences (Leonard, West and Vic) common rooms are being redone to create more door rooms. #savequeenswildlife #savethecommonrooms
7) The AMS/ORT/Queens something or other junkie.
They have fully embraced the extracurricular life at Queen’s. They are running from QMP, to QSL to, any other Q starting abbreviation you can think off. They are probably super cool but too busy to make time for you. Also if you get a moment to chat with them they will probably start trying to convince you to join a club because "it's super awesome, so fun, and crazy rewarding!!!!!! :) :) :)" ....... but like what about netflix??
8) The person who has WAY too much tri-colour spirit
They are at every sports game, are always posting on overheard, wear the Queen’s rugby jersey everyday, and have Cha Gheill as their email sign off. This person is so much fun at homecoming and a bit much any other time.
9) The person who seems very overwhelmed by it all
Queen’s is a school filled with traditions, parities, long study hours, and lots of spirit. You absolutely love it, but it can be overwhelming. In res you will definitely meet that person who just seems terrified and overwhelmed all the time. They "slept through" the grease pole, went home for homecoming and spend way to long locked up in their room studying. Give them a smile and a you can do it look, they'll appreciate it.
10) The person who thinks it's funny to pull the Vic fire alarm
Great going bud. Now we all have to be woken up in the middle of the night and stand in the freezing cold for the fire department to conclude that there is no fire, they came for no reason (when they could be needed somewhere else) and you're an asshole. But everyone on your floor def already knew that.
11) The person who doesn’t party and judges you for it
Queen’s is great for being a positive, inclusive and open minded school which makes the person who doesn’t drink yet insists in hanging out in people’s room when they are partying judging them for it THE ACTUAL WORST. Can't we all just let each other be?
