Alcohol and university students: a match made in heaven.
Okay not really, but everyone loves to enjoy a glass of their fave drink when they're done a heavy week of assignments. Whether you're with your university friends or hanging out with your friends who go to other schools, chances are you're all having a great time sipping on some drinks and catching up on life.
Now there's loads of different mixed drinks and cocktails to suit your taste, but whichever one you love definitely says a lot about you. This drink can describe you, your friends, or maybe even the school you go to. It can represent you so much, that even the name can perfectly sum up yourself and others.
Don't believe me? Here are some examples:

1.Western University - Jägerbombs
Everyone knows Western students love to have a good time. I mean who doesn't?! Jägerbombs are one of those drinks that make sure of that. Similar to one of these bombs, Wes-turnt students make sure you're night is anything BUT calm and tame and are always bringing life to the party (like this heart-pumping drink).
2. Ryerson University - French 75
A lot of you are probably saying, wait what? What is that? Which makes this drink perfect for a Ryerson student. Rams are so ahead of the times/trends (being in the heart of the 6ix), which makes this drink their carbon copy. This cocktail made from gin, Champagne, lemon juice, and sugar adds a lively twist to your favourite (and more basic) drinks, just like Ryerson students are able to do in any boring situation they're in.
3.Brock University // Greyhound
Grapefruit and vodka. How could you go wrong? Badgers are lean, independent, and (of course) drinking machines. Definitely not comparing them to the breed of dog though, but with their hard work ethic and athletic skills they sure work like them.
4.Guelph University // Dirty Martini
Gryphons are 100% dirty martinis. Every student at Guelph is crisp and clean when you first look at them, but deep down, we all know their a little dirty. It could be because they're surrounded by farmland and the "lovely" smell of manure, or it could be something else...
5.Wilfrid Laurier University // Sidecar
Oh Laurier, always shafted by UOW. Laurier may always feel pushed to the side due to the other school in the area, but when it comes to partying and drinking, they for sure are doing it up.

6.McMaster University // Last Word
Mac students always need to have the last word. When it comes to university pride, McMaster is definitely up on the list. Marauder's basically never stop talking about how much they love Mac and how it's the best university ever. They will rep McMaster until they die. School flags on their casket and everything.
7.Queen's University // Dark and Stormy
If there's a person to be described as "dark and stormy", it's definitely Queen's students. They may seem unapproachable or self-absorbed, but deep down their wild, fun-loving partiers just like the rest of us. However, academics always comes first for these students and will never take a break from studying to keep their high ranking in Maclean's, even if it hurts them (I guess that's why their mascot is named 'Boo Hoo').
8.OCAD University // Blue Moon
The artsy OCAD kids. They're intriguing and just as mysterious as this vodka based beverage.
9.University of Waterloo // Zombie
Let's give a round of applause to these study-holics. They're doing enough work to classify as living zombies, but I suppose it's crucial when you've received multiple honours and awards from various organizations.
10.University of Toronto, Mississauga, and Scarborough, and St. George // Long Island Iced Tea
We got a mix of everything here. Due to UofT having many branches of their school all over Ontario, it's only fitting that they get classified as the infamous Long Island Iced Tea. It's got tequila, vodka, light rum, triple sec, and gin, which basically describes the vast amount of people and personalities you'll come across if you meet anyone from this well-known university. With it's stellar reputation, its graduates will likely be sipping on these when they're vacationing in Cape Cod.

11.York University // Cosmopolitan
Let's be honest, anyone who attends York is good-looking. With their mini on-campus shopping mall, it's no doubt that these students are the coolest of the cool. Their sleek and totally flirty, just like this amazing beverage.
12.Trent University // Hot Toddy
Being up North all year round can be rough, not to mention freezing cold. Hot Toddy's will warm these chilly students up when their walking to and from their classes, or when they have a drunken night and accidentally fall in the Otanabee River.
