A hippie from the Northeast... specifically Vermont, Upstate New York, or Southern Connecticut. Gavins often face the conflict of upholding their earthy/drug-induced values while attending school with the preppiest and uptight individuals in existence. However, Gavins are always willing to help you smoke a blunt or partake in any other illegal activities.
"I ran out of weed, I need to give Gavin a call."
"Gathering of the Vibes? I think you mean gathering of the Gavins..."
"I saw a Gavin yesterday smoking and driving a VW bus wearing a tie-dye shirt... I think I'm in love."
