c) Physical Activities Complex — pool is lyfe.

b) A long, flowing cape, and I’m not even the most weirdly-dressed person around.

c) Swimsuit — gotta be ready to go for a dive at any time.

d) A scarf, so no one sees my huge fangs. Definitely not a stereotypical, stupid sombrero!


If you got…

Mostly a: You are the Bigfoot, also known as British Columbia’s Sasquatch. You can survive even the most ancient, coldest, draftiest, Brutalist classrooms.

Mostly b: You are the Mothman, West Virginian terror. If you miss the iXpress, you can always fly to campus.

Mostly c: You are the Loch Ness Monster, aquatic mystery of Scotland. Consider living in Columbia Lake, rent-free!

Mostly d: You are the Chupacabra, menace of Mexico. You have a ravenous appetite, but you may have met your match in the local geese.

Mostly e: You’re the rarest cryptid of all.  I’m honestly not sure how you managed to answer e at all, or even how you exist.
