If you pay close attention to the details in the hallway, you will notice a common, colorful theme: Water bottles. Most of these water bottles have an individual identity and can be found decked out with multiple stickers, engraved with a unique design and sometimes can have scrunchies and best friend bracelets around the different colored caps and bottle bases.

If you somehow haven’t seen a Hydro Flask or any other metal water bottle on someone’s desk or in the halls, you’ve probably heard one. It’s not hard to notice when someone drops their water bottle. You might even hear loud gasps as the stainless steel hits against the hallway floors and creates a tragic dent.

Here’s a look at several La Salle students who showcased their diverse water bottles, which feature their personalities and interests. They shared their stories behind their unique bottles as well as their opinions about the excitement surrounding Hydro Flasks.

Freshmen:

Samantha Dillard

“I love collecting stickers and it’s so much fun [getting stickers] from different places I’ve been and different cool things I’ve done. So I wanted to put them on my Hydro [because] that way I can take them with me everywhere.”

Nicholas Riley

“My first Hydro Flask that I got was in seventh grade and [I really wanted to get a Hydro because] everyone in my class had it, and I thought it was a really cool water bottle. I think it’s a pretty cool trend because it’s a good way to show off your personality and show how you’re unique.”

Carly Weber

“[Everyone had a Hydro] so that made me want to get one. I love the Hydro Flask trend at La Salle because it’s cool to see everyone’s different stickers so you can kinda tell what their personality is like by the kind of stickers they have.”

Sophomores:

Madison Jefferis

“I really love stickers and I’ve always loved stickers, and so when I came here I saw that everyone had stickers on their Hydros and I thought, ‘What a great idea.’”

Emily Niebergall

“[I think that the trend of putting stickers on your water bottle] is really cute. If you put stickers on it I think it is unique to use.”

Juniors:

Olivia Keepes

Olivia wanted a Hydro Flask because, “Number one, I thought that [Hydro Flasks] are really cool. Number two, I love the look of them and number three, it was a practical sort of thing because it’s insulated and it keeps your water cool for a while.”

Macauley Callahan

“[I think that Hydro Flasks are overrated] to a degree. I like them personally because it’s a really good water bottle that you don’t have to worry about condensation or spilling. It’s also really nice because I usually like to drink cold water [and] I can put ice in it [to make it] last all day.”

Anna McClow

“I really like [the trend because] I think it’s super creative and a really good idea of how to be diverse. It shows everybody’s uniqueness and how we’re all different people, which I think is really cool. I really like mine because it keeps the water so cold throughout the day which is really, really nice.”

Nico Hey

“I kind of [feel like Hydro Flasks are overrated] because it’s just a water bottle and any bottle works perfectly. I’m not sure why everyone has a Hydro. I don’t really care about the dents and scratches on my water bottle like, ‘Look how many I have.’ It just means that you take it places.”

Seniors:

Philicia Robinson

“I love Hydro Flasks. I think they’re cute and they’re the best water bottles just because your water stays cold. But I think that the stickers personalize your water bottle since everyone has a water bottle. It makes yours different, whatever color you get. At La Salle everyone has one so in that sense it’s overrated but I like Hydro Flasks, so I’m going to say they’re stable and a neutral standpoint for me.”

Carson Ogard

“[I have a water bottle to] drink water and stay healthy. I don’t know [what brand it is] but it’s just a normal water bottle.”

Matthew Salisbury

“I got a really good deal [on my Hydro] so I decided to get it. I don’t want to put any stickers on my water bottle because it’s expensive and if you want to take the stickers off I think it just ruins the Hydro sometimes, so that’s why I don’t like putting stickers on my Hydro.”

John Salisbury

“I think [Hydro Flasks] are super expensive and kind of a little bit of a waste of money and you could get one at Costco for half the price. I think [the trend of putting stickers on your water bottle] is cool, but sometimes people can judge you being like, ‘I have more stickers than you’ in a little bit of a way. But at the same time [stickers] can tell a story of where you have been, just like you put stickers on a car. It gives it more of a design.”

Teacher, Ms. Coleman:

“I got my Hydro for free. My husband is sponsored by ‘Next Adventure’ for disc golf and he got a [ton] of them. So every bottle that I have, I haven’t paid for.”

    I want there to be collective dropping of the hydros on the ground followed by a collective groan as we all wonder if that was the drop that was going to put a dent in the bottle.
