The 7 Squirrels You'll Meet in College

Don't worry about the people you'll meet in college; they'll probably be great. It's the squirrels you should fear.

There are red squirrels, gray squirrels, even flying squirrels on Wikipedia. We'd propose another category: College squirrel. 

Tiny, tough and used to the noise and chaos of students, College Squirrel fears nothing and eats everything. Here's a list of the odd — and sometimes creepy — variations you might spot on campus.

7. That squirrel who somehow ended up outside your 7th floor window.

Then runs left, right and returns to center in some sort of suicidal fugue state.

Every day, you'll scream.

2. That one squirrel who is always chasing some other squirrel around campus. 

Squirrels everywhere!

Considerable crossover with No. 5.

1. The squirrel who lacks personal boundaries.

It seems like she kind of, almost might let you touch her then runs away at the last minute.*

*Please do not touch the squirrels.
