Best Place to Feign Artiness

ON CAMPUS — Empty hallway by day, hipster photo-shoot backdrop by night, the Mandeville graffiti stairwell will score you instant college-kid cool factor before crawling back to that 600-page chemistry textbook.

There’s something for everyone: politics (ape stencil labeled Obama), sarcasm (Egyptian-like creature giving the finger), pop culture (Pac-Man) or macabre (white silhouette of a person sitting on a chair — positioned above an actual chair). Find the image that fits you best, lean next to it with a bored smirk and ask your roommate to snap a photo. Replace your profile pic with said photo and bask in your home friends’ comments. Or, if you want to feel even more authentic, embrace the spray-paint stink and try your own piece. Doesn’t matter if it sucks — it’s the fact you vandalized public property that counts.
