College Students Perfectly Portrayed by Grey’s Anatomy Characters

Everyone knows and loves the famous hit TV show on ABC called Grey’s Anatomy. It’s packed full not only of medical drama and problems to solve, but friendships, relationships, marriage, divorce, births, and deaths of our most favorite characters. We have come to known and love individuals that we always cheered for or even got annoyed with. Grey’s Anatomy has some of the most relatable and well-liked characters from Cristina Yang, the loose-cannon and blunt friend, to the passionate and sensitive Meredith Shepherd, to the heart throb Derek McDreamy Shepherd. And there’s no denying that we all had a crush on McDreamy and have someone in our own lives that reminds us of him. Their stories of working at the hospital together and how their personal lives intertwined with their career reminds us of our own college life from the relationships we have to the stress we feel from our academic workload.
