10 'Game Of Thrones' Characters As Professors

10 'Game Of Thrones' Characters As Professors

They'll Teach us How to Play the Game of Life.

Those of us who are currently in college or have recently graduated can distinctly remember our experiences with our professors. Whether they be good or bad they defined us, and maybe even for life. In the world of Game of Thrones, decisions defined the course of things in Westros and beyond.

These changes were due to key players in the game making decisions that would affect all the people. This is much like how our professors shape us. So this week, we're going to look at what type of professor 10 Game of Thrones characters would be.

1. Littlefinger

Littlefinger is the professor that is super nice in person, but when you get your grade back you aren't so sure about that anymore. He is the professor that is secretly plotting to fail you so you have to take it again next year. It could be because you're a redhead, or he just enjoys failing you that much.

2. Jon Snow

Jon Snow is the professor that is very stoic and likes to stick to the syllabus way too much. You probably wouldn't find him teaching Philosophy as it is too debatable. Sciences or Math would be more for Jon as they are pure fact. He also has a bit of an obsession with genetics.

3. Maester Pycelle

Maester Pycelle's class would be the one where you'd catch up on all that lost sleep. He'd be that monotone professor that makes you glance up at the clock wondering when the torture will end. Maybe he does this on purpose to avoid a student revolt. Who truly knows.

4. Varys

Varys is the mean girl of professors. You won't have to tell him you were partying instead of doing his assignment this weekend. He already knows and has told every professor and student he's met about your shenanigans. Have fun in classes next week.

5. Cersei Lannister

Cersei is the professor that everybody hates just because she blatantly hates everyone herself. She purposely gives assignments off the syllabus just to make sure you only have time for her class. Because her class is the only class that matters, right? Don't think so? She'll gladly go out of her way to tell you how wrong you are. You'll be chained to a desk forever.

6. Daenerys Targaryen

Daenerys is the professor that has always seemed a little quirky. She definitely has some inventive teaching methods, and if you walk away from her class knowing nothing you likely won't survive long. It's best to pay attention in this course as she does not give second chances easily.

7. Tyrion Lannister

Tyrion is the professor that curses openly in the classroom and shows videos in class that most others would shy away from. You can openly talk about your drunk exploits, and send Snapchats the whole time. You never get through a lecture though, because it always comes back to stories from his college days. You always get out of class 10 to 15 minutes early.

8. Ramsay Bolton

Ramsay is the professor that scares the shit out of you and appears randomly in the hall staring at you. Everyone is pretty convinced he's on a most wanted list somewhere, but you'd all be too afraid to ask. You try really hard to pass his class so you don't have to take it again, but it's hard when he keeps changing his expectations all the time.

9. Ser Loras Tyrell

Ladies, don't expect to get much work done in Ser Loras' class. You'll be too distracted by the wavy locks and the fantasies in your daydreams. That's okay with you though, because you'll get to take his class over again and stare at his perfection for another 3 to 4 months. However, these efforts would all be fruitless.

10. Samwell Tarly

Sam is the professor who is willing to go to extreme lengths for his students. He will set appointments outside of class, and help you get books out of the collections only professors can access. Sam is super understanding if you can't get your assignment in on time and will talk to you about a proper extension.

10 Things Someone Who Grew Up In A Private School Knows

The 10 things that every private school-goer knows all too well.


1. Uniforms

Plaid. The one thing that every private school-goer knows all too well. It was made into jumpers, skirts, shorts, scouts, hair ties, basically anything you could imagine, the school plaid was made into. You had many different options on what to wear on a normal day, but you always dreaded dress uniform day because of skirts and ballet flats. But it made waking up late for school a whole lot easier.

2. New people were a big deal

New people weren't a big thing. Maybe one or two a year to a grade, but after freshman year no one new really showed up, making the new kid a big deal.

3. You've been to school with most of your class since Kindergarten

Most of your graduating class has been together since Kindergarten, maybe even preschool, if your school has it. They've become part of your family, and you can honestly say you've grown up with your best friends.

4. You've had the same teachers over and over

Having the same teacher two or three years in a row isn't a real surprise. They know what you are capable of and push you to do your best.

5. Everyone knows everybody. Especially everyone's business.

Your graduating class doesn't exceed 150. You know everyone in your grade and most likely everyone in the high school. Because of this, gossip spreads like wildfire. So everyone knows what's going on 10 minutes after it happens.

6. Your hair color was a big deal

If it's not a natural hair color, then forget about it. No dyeing your hair hot pink or blue or you could expect a phone call to your parents saying you have to get rid of it ASAP.

7. Your school isn't like "Gossip Girl"

There is no eating off campus for lunch or casually using your cell phone in class. Teachers are more strict and you can't skip class or just walk right off of campus.

8. Sports are a big deal

Your school is the best of the best at most sports. The teams normally go to the state championships. The rest of the school that doesn't play sports attends the games to cheer on the teams.

9. Boys had to be clean-shaven, and hair had to be cut

If you came to school and your hair was not cut or your beard was not shaved, you were written up and made to go in the bathroom and shave or have the head of discipline cut your hair. Basically, if you know you're getting written up for hair, it's best just to check out and go get a hair cut.

10. Free dress days were like a fashion show

Wearing a school uniform every day can really drive you mad. That free dress day once a month is what you lived for. It was basically a fashion show for everyone, except for those upperclassmen who were over everything and just wore sweat pants.

It's Time For PATH Points To Get A Makeover

The PATH point system isn't fair at the University of Dayton.


Two years ago I wrote an article on PATH points where I defended the system. While I still believe that the PATH point system is better than the lottery system at other schools, but after almost three years at UD I can recognize the many many faults with PATH points. It's nice to have the control over where you live, but what use is the control when the system is so flawed?

The PATH point system works like this: whenever you go to an event or do an online module you get a point. The more points you have the higher you and your roommates are placed on the list to be assigned housing. Sounds good right? Control over where you live? Who wouldn't want that? The problem is it's hard to get PATH points.

There are only so many events each week and each event has a limit to how many people can go to it. Events fill up so quickly that students have to arrive over an hour and in some case even two hours early. It means that it's not just a one-hour event anymore it's a three-hour event. It's ridiculous that students have to wait in a crowded hallway for over an hour just to be unsure if they will actually be able to get into the event or not.

What's worse is the times that PATH point events are held at. At least half of the events take place during class time. How can UD expect their students to get PATH points and go to class? It's like they are rewarding students who take fewer credits with better housing than students who take more credit hours. And like I mentioned earlier the events that are at night mean that students have to get there almost two hours early just to get in.

It's not just the fact that students have to go to hours early to an event. It's that students who have busy schedules can't make it to these events. PATH points should be awarded for reasons other than going to events. Students should get PATH points based on how many credit hours they are taking. Every three credits should be worth one PATH point. PATH points should be awarded based on how many activities a student is involved in. For each club or organization someone is involved in they should get a PATH point, and leaders should get an extra one. Even athletes, intramural, club, and school ones should get PATH points.

It makes sense that students who are more involved at UD won't have the time to get PATH points, so they should be getting PATH points based on the activities they are doing.
