What Does Your Favorite Ice Cream Say About You as a Student?

In honor of National Ice Cream Month, find out just what kind of student you are based on your favorite flavor!

Did you know July is National Ice Cream Month? We think that’s as good an excuse as any to celebrate with a huge cup or cone. (Like we really need an excuse.)

While you’re enjoying your favorite flavor, find it below to see what it says about you as a student. Then let us know if we got it right in the comments!


You’re reliable, hardworking, and humble. Your teachers have high expectations and you always deliver, even though you’re quiet and like to stay out of the spotlight. You’re also old school and not very receptive to change. A detour in the syllabus is enough to send you into a panic—on the inside, of course.


You’re universally popular and can make anyone smile. You’re also quite charming, which comes in handy when you encounter sticky situations at school, like requesting an extension for your history essay. Who could say no to someone so delightful and smooth?


You’re super sweet and bring energy to every classroom. Some may think you’re a teacher’s pet or just putting on a perky act. But they can’t hold it against you for long—you really are that nice!


You’re an overachiever who wants it all. You are extra involved in extracurricular activities, and your résumé is as varied as your ice cream choice. Your drive is sure to take you all the way to the top of your class and get you everything you want in life. Way to go, neapolidictorian.


You’re the opposite of a morning person and have a hard time getting up for class. As a result, you’re constantly running late, though you do seem to meet every deadline and get all your assignments in on time. Once you do finally wake up, there’s no stopping you from achieving all your goals.  

Mint chocolate chip

You’re cool, calm, and collected in class. Pop quiz? NBD. Presentation? No sweat. You successfully breeze through it all and even help friends who tend to stress out about school. Every student wishes they could be as chill as you!

Cookie dough

You’re playful and seem to have fun in every class. But you especially enjoy the electives, like art, theater, or home ec, where your ideas and creativity really pop. We also bet you had the best snacks in your lunchbox when you were in elementary school.  


You’re a class clown, though your sense of humor is sort of different. Some classmates might even think you’re a little nutty (see what we did there?). But the people who can appreciate your acquired taste know how sweet it is to have a friend like you.

Rocky road

You’ve encountered some ups and some downs in your academic career. You may not have had the easiest experience so far, but you’re determined to maintain a positive attitude and give it your all. You’re definitely on your way to becoming most improved student!

Ready to find a college that fits you (almost) as well as these ice cream flavors? We've got you covered like hot fudge caramel marshmallow butterscotch sauce.

High School Class of 2022

CollegeXpress was the foundation of my college search process. Because of CollegeXpress, I was able to make a more informed and confident decision as to where it was best to pursue my higher education. I have recommended this website to fellow peers and for first-generation students like me. It’s a website I will continue to promote because of how simple it was to use and how many opportunities were offered to me at my fingertips!

My favorite part of CollegeXpress is the 800+ lists which have all kinds of hard-to-find information. These lists are helpful when I’m creating college lists, and I also use them to give students a feel for a particular college or university.



High School Class of 2021

CollegeXpress really helped me by letting me know the colleges ratings and placements. They gave me accurate information on my colleges tuition rates and acceptance. They even let me know the ration between students and faculty and the diversity of the college. Overall they told me everything I needed and things I didnt even think I needed to know about my college and other colleges I applied for.

I discovered CollegeXpress while embarking on my college search journey as an excited—but scared and way confused—high schooler without a counselor or college-bound sibling to give me advice. Let me tell you, I’m so glad that I stumbled on this community! CollegeXpress helped me find potential colleges and keep application deadlines straight. It gave me a great list of scholarships, and the blogs and emails made me feel like I wasn’t going it alone. Almost three years later and with freshman year of college down, I still love the CollegeXpress vibe so much that I’m writing for them. I’d recommend this site to anyone!
