"And so began" vs. "And thus began"

I believe both are grammatically correct, but which is better to use (for a college essay)?
To me, "and thus began" comes off a bit stuffy. What are your thoughts?

Totally depends on what you're writing about, and what immediately precedes and comes after.

For a more serious topic, being "stuffy", would be considered being serious, and remember your audience is the Professor. You're not going to talk to your professor the same way you talk to your friends right? So don't write to him in the same way you write to your friends.
