"In the five minutes it takes you to walk across the pavement, numerous people’s poor clothing choices assault your eyes."
In my opinion, this is the only sentence in this article that Miss Tsaltas is right about. Between the baggy pants, cargo shorts, affliction tees with oversized rhinestones and many other poor choices walking around campus it is no wonder that we (greeks) wear our sunglasses all the time!
Now now, here is the difference: we aren't writing silly little articles in the Plainsman about how much we dislike your clothing choices. I am sure you are sitting in front of your computer LOVING all the comments that are being made; you are thinking that your article is getting read and so your article is effective and is going to take you places. Well congrats! As someone said before you have just made yourself "that" girl, maybe you shouldn't have written such an attack on the greek system your freshman year. Good luck in the future, I'm sure your parents are proud that they taught you how to be a rude little girl.
Maybe you should see a therapist to figure out why you are so bitter.

Another Greek bash article, surprise. You should at least get smart and do like a girl did a few years ago and bash on block seating. The response she got was free block seating and tailgating with a fraternity. Just be glad this isn't Bama, you mess with the Greeks there, the Greeks come after you.

HAHAHAHAHA I think this is incredibly funny- don't get me wrong- I love leggings, nike shorts, and huge men's tshirts :) INCLUDING but not limited to Tom's shoes and UGG BOOTS (oh no she didn't).... I did the sorority thing for 2 1/2 years then dropped out but I still wore this stuff- and alot of girls and boys who don't do the greek thing wear this stuff. This girl is gonna be hated on forever (or at least until she graduates) but you've gotta admit... there aren't many original people walking on the concourse since everybody wears the same thing all the time- if I had not graduated already I might have tried wearing something different but alas- here I am in Orlando Florida where if you get caught not wearing graphic surfer T's, huge sunglasses, and dresses/long dress like shirts with leggings underneath including little flat shoes then you will be made fun of. I cannot tell you how many comments I have gotten on my Ugg boots, my Vera Bradley purses/bags, and my Northface jacket. They are not welcomed here. So, needless to say- every city has a stereotype... it just depends on if you follow the trend or not- and I say do whatever you want :) but I do think this article is funny- offensive... but funny none the less. All in good fun!

This. Was. Amazing. Possibly the best satirical work I've read in a while. Took the thoughts from my head and put them in The Plainsman. I would just like to say thank you. hahaha

I'm pretty much obsessed with the reaction of the Auburn Community to this ridiculous article. Read the comments; they are all hilarious both Greek and Non-Greek. My opinon.... Good luck the next four years Kelly, you just became THAT girl!
People don't forget!

I honestly have to say i am SO disappoined to read this sad excuse for an article. As a journalism major and a former member of the Plainsman staff, I cannot even believe this article has been published. I can honestly said it is the most rude, offensive, UNTRUE bs i have ever read in my life. I am so shocked. What a joke.

I can understand where the author is coming from, to an extent. I find it easier to dress myself in a way that I'd be comfortable in a business, or just so I look presentable. I tend to leave my nike shorts for the gym or sleep, and I don't wear my oversized tee shirts out of the house. However, my friends all dress in the "sorority style", and I could honestly care less. Yeah, it may not seem like there's much individualism in Auburn, but I went to Catholic School for most of my life, and I've learned not to judge people by what they're wearing. My best friend and I have an ongoing joke that she doesn't own a single pair of actual pants, or any shirts smaller than an XL, and she teases me because I wake up an hour before class. Does that change either of our character? Not at all.
