Count up your answers!
Mostly As — The Axe and Palm
Nestled centrally on campus, The Axe and Palm – or as students call it, TAP – is the place for hustle and bustle. It’s the perfect place to get burgers after a frat party, grab dinner before a meeting in Old Union or ease the post-midterm pain with chicken tenders and waffle fries. Like Stanford’s burger hub, you are outgoing, upbeat and love to be in the middle of the action. If your friends ever want to hang out on a moment’s notice, you TAP into that opportunity (apologies for the pun).
Mostly Bs – Coupa Café
You are a young professional, or at least an aspiring professional. You want people to know that you’re serious, but not too serious. With its fresh coffee, fancy crepes and warm paninis, Coupa strikes the perfect balance of classy but not stuffy.
Mostly Cs — CoHo
You thrive in creative endeavors. Perhaps you perform or make art, or maybe you just appreciate good music. Either way, CoHo’s lattes and paninis fuel your creative juices. You’re more introspective, so their jazz music and leather couches provide a nice place for you to think and create.
Mostly Ds — Olive’s
You know that friend who’s in multiple clubs and is always dashing to class or a meeting, but whenever you see them, they always greet you warmly? You’re probably that person. You’re hardworking and ambitious, but you’re really humble about it. Even if you don’t feel like you have it together (everyone feels that way sometimes), give yourself a pat on the back for all the things you do.
