Gone are the days where students had to wait until freshman orientation to connect with one another. Now students have connected online before they ever arrive on campus.
The latest of these online forums are Facebook meme groups and nearly every major college in America has one.
Students use the groups to bond, chat, and connect through a shared sense of humor showcased through a series of student-created memes specific to each college.
As the groups have grown, they’ve become about more than just connection. They’ve also begun to play a role in the admission process, Mic reported recently.
