The Weekly Yak

We didn’t wake up to snow this morning, so I’d say that’s a rare success on Oklahoma’s part. A not-so-rare success is users of Yik Yak being quick with exposing info and truth within our small society, or perhaps we’re all just insufferably nosy. At least I am. That’s why I’m the curator of the best Yik Yak posts of a liberal arts university and no one else is.

I hope everyone had a good Valentine’s Day, and if you didn’t, it’s because you didn’t complain about how lonely you are on Yik Yak. That makes everyone feel better, and it’s good kindling for getting creepy messages from someone who could actually be your next-door neighbor in Brown. After all, it’s incredibly important that we, as a student body, are all there for each other. That being said, for God’s sake can someone supply the True Blue Pantry with green beans for the user who is disappointed every day that they don’t have green beans for dinner?

Check in on the commuter students, because I know they slipped your mind since the weather is no longer treacherous. Also, keep being dramatic activists, even though it won’t pay off your student debt. You pay $30,000 a semester to use Yik Yak, and I pay that much to find the top ten posts from this past week. As always, we refrain from reusing posts that were posted in previous weeks, and ones in which graphics provide the majority of the context for the posts:

“Dear campus tour kids, none of us are actually students. We are all paid actors” – Tulsa

“What post was that email about” – Tulsa

“Really hoping they replace category 5 with a Braums” – Tulsa

“Anyone else super depressed for the past few weeks?” – Tulsa

“anti-Israel ≠ anti-Jew” – Tulsa

“Temu definitely used someone’s credit card info to buy all these commercials. Everyone check your statements” – Tulsa


“As a fat girl I hate when people say ‘I love your confidence’ or ‘I wish I had your confidence I could never..’ please I’m just wearing jeans (crying emoji x2)” – Tulsa

“Well that was a stressful [redacted] message from goldie ai” – Tulsa

“We really went from Feb 1 to Feb 12 in just 3 minutes” – Tulsa

Love month is almost over, but my love for these posts from this week will be eternal:

“If you’re ever scared to go to club meetings or anything, please go bc I promise those club leaders are starved for more involvement and will make you feel so welcomed. It’s a great way to make friends and form connections” – Tulsa

“I wish gay people were real :(” – Tulsa

“It’s ok to not have a Valentine on Valentine’s Day. I didn’t have a groundhog on Groundhog’s Day” – Tulsa

“Just a girl living in a Big Pharma world” – Tulsa

“My commuter [redacted] looks so stupid with this [redacted] backpack of my daily necessities” – Tulsa

Do you want your Yaks to be featured next week on The Collegian? Be funny. Make Hannah laugh. That rarely happens.
